    I am inclined to believe

    Hello to all,

    Is it okay to use "I am inclined to believe" instead of in my opinion in writing sections of International tests like TOEFL?

    Is this correct and natural?

    I am inclined to believe that the advantages of organic farming outweigh its drawbacks.

    I am inclined to believe that more money should be spent on space exploration.

    I guess you are leaning in that direction (inclined to believe) , but you could be persuaded otherwise.
    Not a professional teacher

    Re: I am inclined to believe

    I don't think there is any difference if you replace "inclined to believe" with "of the opinion".
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.
