The quick solution is instinctive theories, our “untutored descriptions for just how the world works,” obstruct of fact. Scienceblind Audiobook by Andrew Shtulman Streaming. These user-friendly concepts are prevalent and indiscriminate– also scientists with years of research unconsciously turn to false instinctive concepts when examined.

Second, intuitive theories prevail; they are shared by people of various ages, cultures, and also historic durations. Third, instinctive concepts are robust; they are resistant to change despite counterevidence or counterinstruction”.
