"Changing your mind is harder than it looks. The more you believe you know something, the more you filter and ignore all information to the contrary. [...] It is not natural for us to formulate a hypothesis and then test various ways to prove it false. Instead, it is far more likely that we will form one hypothesis, assume it is true, and only seek out and believe information that supports it."
