“We pay more attention to the content of messages than to information about their reliability, and as a result end up with a view of the world around us that is simpler and more coherent than the data justify.”

in Daniel Kahneman, Epistemology, Writers

-Daniel KahnemanThinking, Fast and Slow. New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2011, p.118.

*For example, while you’ve been reading all these quotes and enjoying them (or not) have you considered the reliability of the source (i.e. me)?
