Belief, 5

The human brain – especially  the left frontal lobe or prioritizing division– is always trying to come up with reasons for everything and is very gullible and susceptible to deceptions and illusions, including magic tricks.

Studies have shown that neither child nor adult brains have a well-developed capacity to distinguish the accuracy of their beliefs.

Adults are particularly vulnerable in terms of maintaining self-deceptive beliefs.

More tomorrow.
