Cultural Cognition Project

NPR just had a piece showing that individuals focus on different facets and presentation of information. The Cultural Cognition Project asks people to describe their cultural information. Theuy were asked about nanotechnology and given information. There were some who like "technology, free enterprise and authority." There are others who are suspicious of these.

And they found that some people would believe information from the "rumpled and bearded" expert. Others believed the crisply business-like expert.

I will follow up on the Cultural Cognition Project in a later posting, probably Thoughtful Thursday.
