What factors are involved in how people change their beliefs?

It can be difficult to change one’s mind about deeply held beliefs. It is nearly impossible to change someone else’s mind. Here are a few reasons why people don’t change their mind in spite of counter-evidence to their beliefs.

One thought on “What factors are involved in how people change their beliefs?


    We ALL Have Capabilities, it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that Our Faculties, Facilities and Resources Determine Our Abilities; so, for example, Some of My THOUGHTS!!! on Effective Communication:

    β™‘ 1. Insist On DOMINATION! !!
    β™‘ 2. Discuss so We Can Compromise
    β™‘ 3. Agree-To-Disagree

    …it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that I AM NOT!!! Even Remotely Religious but My Marvellous Mom is Devoutly Religious so I KNOW!!! The Bible from Revelations to Genesis and I Know that Jealous, Envious Cain Killed Abel and Recieved ‘The Mark Of Cain’ that Many Carry Now; so just how do You CHOOSE!!! to Effectively Communicate EveryOne πŸ€” ?



    So EveryOne, just who Defines Perfect for You πŸ€” ?…is it SomeOne who Defines Your Perfect as:

    β—‡ Financial Earnings πŸ€” ?
    β™‘ Romantic Relationship πŸ€” ?
    ♀ You As You ARE πŸ€” ?

    …it’s never easy to Self Examine, this I Know from Experience; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that I Have Rediscovered that The Only Financial Satisfaction and Love I NEED!!! is in Solitude and Isolation Waiting for The Lady who Feels The Same Way as We Produce Our Future in Our Awesome, Courageous, Calm Children EveryOne…F.E.A.R is Diamond Hard, Our Greatest Ally; this is F.E.A.R EveryOne:

    β—‡ Friendly Emotive Alert Response 😏
    ♧ False Evidence Appearing Real 😣
    β™‘ Firm Efficient Assertive ReAction πŸ˜€

    …it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that FEAR!!! is Friendly EveryOne; like Former Friends Left Behind in The Guise of ‘Moving On’…



    β—‡ As a Writer I Appreciate The Subtleties of Our Languages; for example when We ARE in DisAgreement Many Will CHOOSE!!! to Delete and Block while Others CHOOSE!!! to Remain in Friendly Debate…it’s My View that Collaboration is NOT!!! about Agreement; because there is NOTHING!!! to LEARN!!! from ‘Yes People’…it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that ‘Yes People’ ARE Comfortable to have in Our Personal Space; the Awake, Aware and Alert know that it’s ALL about Being WILLING!!! to Exit Our Comfort Zone For A While then Return for Rest, Reflection and Relaxation which is Very Good for Creative/Sporting/Business Practices and Personal Relationships…



    β—‡ Our Answers ARE in Our Questions EveryOne; e.g. Teachers Ask Questions of Students for which The Teacher Already has An Answer inviting DEBATE!!! from The Students, The Teachers Teacher πŸ€“ …a Rhetorical Question is a Command, an Instruction; while an Authentic, Honest Question is a Genuine Request for New Information and an Implied Question has No Question Mark so Spot The Difference πŸ€” ?



    I Have Recently Been Blocked and Had Many Comments Deleted by Loads of Ladies; now this doesn’t really bother me as it’s their issue not mine πŸ€— …so to ALL of You Reasonable Ladies I Have This to Say; please, Ladies, Stop Competing and ReActing Furiously…instead Save The Sisterhood by Reaching Out to Your Sisters; like SupaSoulSis Taz Thornton 🎯πŸ”₯🎀 does Very Effectively which (WITCH!!! πŸ˜†πŸ˜…πŸ˜„πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜€πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š ) is Very Good for Creative/Sporting/Business Practices and Personal Relationships…so CHOOSE!!! Ladies “Are you a good witch or a bad witch πŸ€” ?” Dorothy is a Very Good, Intelligent, Heartfelt, Courageous Witch who Eventually Gets Back Home to Kansas also Home of Superman/Clark who has a Mild Mannered Lady, Lois Lane πŸ€“πŸ˜ŽπŸ€—



    β—‡ Me:”I Hate You!!!”; You:”I Hate You too so We’re Even.”
    ♧ You:”I Hate You!!!”; Me:”I Love You so We’re UnEven.”
    ♀ I Suggest Consider This in The Context of ALL Your Myriad Relationships

    …it is Crystal Clear Clarity that Self Analysis is TOUGH!!! EveryOne; yet it’s Well Worth it πŸ˜€ …



    I AM a Hedonistic Writer Living The Writers Dream in a Luxury Apartment located in a Sought After Suburb; just over three years ago I Was yet again Homeless so what CHANGED!!! what were My Lessons πŸ€” ?…this is My Brief Summation; make of it what You Will:

    β—‡ 1. Management of Expectation without Losing Sight of Aspirations and Ambitions especially with regard to Timings
    β—‡ 2. Accepting Outcome without Necessarily Agreeing and/or Condoning then Carefully Considering Next Steps
    β—‡ 3. Actively Listening only Interrupting when Invited to do so by Questions from The Other(s) thereby Paying Attention to Signs, Signals, Synchronicities, Pointers and Guidelines

    …this doesn’t Work for EveryBody EveryOne, it Only Ever Works for The Awake, Aware and Alert; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that I Wish You ALL The Very Best in Your Many Endeavours be they Creative/Sporting/Business Practices and/or Personal Relationships so, please, CHOOSE!!! Your Challenges Wisely…



    β™‘ Many Folk THINK!!! I AM an Aloof, Arrogant MotherFucker when the REALITY!!! is I AM a Giant Candle, an ETERNAL FLAME!!!, just like ALL of Us; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that I, and Many Others, ReIgnite Doused, Dimmed, Dumbed Candles
