Quotes on Cognitive Dissonance. Quotations
Hi, do you know of a remarkable situation or a humorous quote by a famous person or a proverb related to people looking for information that is confirming and supporting the existing attitudes and views they have?
“Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief.”
“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”
