“Do what you want to do and don't care about what other people say." (Rajinikanth)
“ … there is little proof that direct challenges to people’s beliefs work to overturn false beliefs. Rather, the evidence currently points to the entrenching of misinformed beliefs as people strive to protect their identities” (Berentson-Shaw, 2018, p.90).
“It ain't what you do, it's the way that you do it, and that's what gets results.”
My comments: There is nothing to debate on what Berentson-Shaw had said in 2018. I have more than adequate proof to state that direct challenges cannot overturn false beliefs.
People not only strive to protect their identities but they do not want to ‘lose face’.
I would have thought that in the West people will tend to appreciate those who are "brutally honest" but I now feel I may have been mistaken.
I have directly challenged Summer Howarth @EduSum to produce the alleged email I had sent her but she has not produced it. She has supporters who appear to stoke the fire with their tweets. You may read more on my blog at https://luqmanmusings.blogspot.com/
Promoting false facts and information has become a ready tool for many people. Powered by the internet, it is a force that is undermining the nature of truth itself.
