Why do people believe weird stuff? Is it an innate trait? Is it learned—nurtured by life events that, over time, create an intensely skeptical (or perhaps intensely credulous) mind? Or is something else at play?
Learning styles are no longer considered quite as set-in-stone as they once were—and that's a good thing. We're learning that we're all at least partly visual learners, and our learning styles change over time.
