What Other People Say May Change What You See

Another experience that tend to prove the mind is weak. That even truth can be biased by social pressure. They don't mention if it's a conscious process or not...

It suggests that information from other people may color our perception at a very deep level.


But if people are made aware of their vulnerability, they may be able to avoid conforming to social pressure when it is not in their self-interest.
