Closing Message- We talked about facing the facts and not deceiving yourself.  It’s also important to not be deceived by others or slip into GroupThink.

Don’t just parrot popular opinion.  Keep an open mind.  Do your own research.  Establish your own opinion based on facts.

GroupThink is real. You need to fight back against it. If something doesn’t smell right, question it. Pursue truth.  The truth has a way of finding you IF you actively look for it.

Case in Point:  The Asch Conformity Experiments

The Asch conformity experiments were a series of psychological experiments during the 1950s that revealed how much a person’s own opinions are influenced by those of groups. Solomon Asch found that people were willing to ignore reality and give an incorrect answer in order to conform to the rest of the group, even when they initially knew that answer was wrong.

A series of simple questions were asked to a group and to individuals.

Result:  75% of the participants in the conformity experiments went along with the rest of the group at least once-  bucking their own logic and opinion.

Participants in the group conformed to the wrong answer 1/3 of the time.

Compared with people not placed in a group were right 99% of the time!

Don’t put your faith in man. Put your faith in God.
