← Anecdote vs. fact

It looks like you have two related, but nevertheless seperate ideas here.

  1. Information is persuasive.
  2. Not all information is factual.

I'm going to guess that humans are wired to initially give a modicum of relevance to anything perceived by their senses whether it is ultimately determined to be true, false, or unknown. From there, you have your work cut out for you quantifying the variables that address what position an individual ends up with.
