Belief

Our belief that we know the answer blinds us to our ignorance. As a result, we ignore the signs that we might be mistaken (Madeleine L van Hecke, Ph.D, Blind Spots, Prometheus books 2007 P. 52)

Our natural tendency is to assume that the answers we have are the right ones, not to habitually question what we think we know.
