When Facts Backfire! SPOT CHECK AND FACT CHECK DAILY:
Why worldview threats undermine evidence
- keep emotions out of the exchange,
- discuss, don’t attack (no ad hominem and no ad Hitlerum),
- listen carefully and try to articulate the other position accurately,
- show respect,
- acknowledge that you understand why someone might hold that opinion, and
- try to show how changing facts does not necessarily mean changing worldviews.
