It's more of an inconvenient trait these days.

"used to be" ? It is a desirable trait in the professional world, and historically questioning the accepted narrative was ostracized - many great critical thinkers were killed or imprisoned. So I am kind of puzzled by your point.

Today socially - many people are just patently contrarian, not critical thinkers. They think just becasue the are against the popular opinion they are being critical, regardless of evidence. THIS is a very big issue today.
