The experts and their ideas

The term expert defines a person who is very knowledgeable about or skillful in a particular area. 

Experts are specialists who, as a rule, are always right when it comes to their topic. However, they are also the ones who are the most at risk to promote obsolete ideas unless they keep up with the development in their field.

Whenever you get stuck to an idea, you put yourself at risk to promote obsolete or just one-sided theories. You might, however, want to try keeping an open mind to the possibility of change. 

Change is unpredictable and being flexible enough to adjust in proper time is a sure key to growth.

When trying to remain open-minded and to keep yourself away from obsolete ideas, you might want to consider surrounding yourself with creative people.

We usually fail to adjust to the evidence put before us regarding these beliefs. Because to have them torn down would be to admit that a large part of our reality is false.

Beliefs Are Tattooed In The Mind

A University Of Iowa research states that once people form their beliefs, they are not likely to change their minds on the face of new information that clearly proves that their long-held beliefs are completely wrong. They are far more likely to go on protecting and fighting for their beliefs.

Even if the new information is extremely compelling and the person has no choice but to change their opinion, it is a temporary change that reverts back fast.
