Brain Belief – Common Questions, 11

If it doesn’t hurt anyone else, what’s the problem with an erroneous belief?

The problem is that it may hurt you. If you believe there are no poisonous snakes and run across a cobra in the jungle, you may fail to take appropriate and adequate precautions and die as a result. If you believe that lifestyle has little if any impact on wellness and longevity, you may be in for a huge surprise when you become obese and develop one or more of 50 chronic diseases related to obesity. This is because beliefs form the basis for your values and practices. Values involve what you think is really important in life for you personally (or your family). Practices involve the actions you take and behaviors you exhibit based on your bias, beliefs, values, and practices. Erroneous bias, beliefs, values, and practices can form the basis for bullying behaviors.
