One thought on “Informed Weekend: 10 Links I Learned From This Week (Vol. 12)

  1. Regarding the research of how simple it may or may not be to change someones mind by the Washington post. A very interesting research study that deals a lot with phycology, egos, perception and just overall knowledge of a subject. They are starting with the people that often change their mind. people that still have a voice but may not know the entirety of a situation. Seeing a different perspective causing them to change their mind. The fact that they went into not only the meaning of words but what they are perceived as is a very interesting topic for me. people often refer to some words as just attacking; for example using the word “you” the meaning of the word is simple and harmless but it can most times be perceived as being an attacking word. A very interesting study.
