Overcome the illusory truth effect

Information we consume is like the food we eat. If it's junk, our thinking will show that.

  • Quit the news as a way of entertainment. If you want to inform yourself of something, learn from trustworthy sources.
  • Engage with timeless wisdom that will improve your life.
  • Stick to reliable, well-known information sources.
  • Research unfamiliar sources before trusting them.
  • Be aware of sites that are funded entirely by advertising.
  • Don't rely on news in social media posts without sources.
  • Pay attention when news items are emotionally charged, as it may be a sign of manipulation.
