Correcting political misinformation usually works but not enough to overcome tribalism (and sometimes corrections backfire)
Isn’t this like the experiment with people and “forcing” them to shock someone. It is a fake shock but people still do it?… we are all selfish creatures by nature.
I'm wondering if there would be any long-term effects of repeated corrections by co-partisans. And whether the effect of a single correction, to whatever measure it may be, dissipates over time and the believer regresses to their original state.
The backlash against correction by non-members is interesting, though not entirely surprising. I see this in 'selling' scenarios. Like a startup founder pitching to investors and loading their deck with myth busting might invite skepticism. Which is why social proofing works i guess--what do others like us think and believe? My sense is that pushing down facts to change minds when you're on the other side tends to deepen reactance.
