As an undergraduate in philosophy I studied Pyrrhonian skepticism. For example, Sextus Empiricus. I came to understand skepticism as the weakest, most facile, form of thinking. Really, any fool could be a skeptic.
The brilliant phenomenologist Dallas Willard felt the same way. He wrote:
"We live in a culture that has, for centuries cultivated the idea that the skeptical person is always smarter than one who believes. You can almost be as stupid as a cabbage as long as you doubt." (Willard, Hearing God)
