“In other words, when we think we’re reasoning, we may instead be rationalizing.”

March 2, 2012 § Leave a comment

I’m a bit under the weather today, so not much up for posting. However, I reviewed an interesting article by Chris Mooney, which reinforced my opinion that we, as information consumers, must be more attentive and self-critical. Beyond asking ourselves questions about the authors and contexts of the information that is tractor loaded at us each day, we should also ask ourselves about our own biases and knee jerk reactions. Try stepping into the Other’s shoes for a moment.
