You are not so smart…

I’m fond of this blog, which tracks various kinds of cognitive disconnects. Here’s an example of something called ‘The Backfire Effect‘. Submitted for your inspection without comment, but I feel it captures the dynamic quite nicely.

    Great article. Funnily enough I came across this also – http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/15/arts/people-argue-just-to-win-scholars-assert.html?_r=1&adxnnl=1&src=ISMR_AP_LO_MST_FB&pagewanted=1&adxnnlx=1308939179-ox9ugm1fnrE/pV1ttvxQHA – not quite the backfire effect but equally as troubling. Looks like the truth is out there but folk just don’t want it.
