Science on Tap--What Happens When Beliefs Change

Event Description:

People sometimes change beliefs about social or scientific topics when they read information suggesting they are incorrect. In this talk I will discuss two things that happen when beliefs change: 1. People show very little awareness of these changes and appear to think their beliefs have not changed. 2. People show belief-based biases in their ability to evaluate arguments, and these biases change along with belief changes. Practical implications relating to current scientific and political issues will be discussed.
