Disinformation Test

Dare to take the Disinformation Test

Why People Ignore Facts and Spread Disinformation?

One of the reasons conspiracy theories are so powerful is because they are powerful narratives—and our brains love strong and emotional narratives. These narratives can be so strongly imprinted in our minds that just hearing something is wrong or reading a list of facts doesn’t do enough to stop us from believing it.

“Belief in conspiracy theories is generally based not on evidence, but in the faith of the believer.” -Barkun
