Q op and the Cognitive Biases.
Brothers and sisters in the #GreatAwakening and the #InformationWarfare: below are a few comments on some of the tools for the ideological debate against deranged people.
It is not enough that we have the best logical and/or rational arguments, we also have to take people's cognitive biases into consideration, and try and learn to navigate them.
Cognitive biases are "systematic patterns of deviation from norm and rationality in judgment". When decisions and opinions stem from 'deviant' information processing.
Biases may be 'cold' or 'hot'. Cold biases are like mental noise, whereas 'hot' or motivational bias are beliefs distorted by some sort wishful thinking.
To begin with, look how I see the Q team using these mind peculiarities in their colossal effort to inform the public and bypass the traitor Media.
Why doesn't Q just drop everything well explained at once, and be done with it? Because of the GENERATIONAL BIAS: self-generated information is remembered best.
So, citizen cyber warriors are much better able to recall decodes of intel puzzles that THEY have generated or at least reviewed and discussed, than simple information read in a paper or a blog.
This is also because of the GOOGLE EFFECT: The tendency to forget information that can be found readily online by using Internet search engines.
Have you noticed? MOST OF THE TIMES we don't have all of the pieces for the stories, and this is on purpose, because of the ZEIGARNIK EFFECT: uncompleted or interrupted tasks are remembered better than completed ones.
Besides being harder to censor automatically, Memes are vital because of the HUMOR EFFECT: humorous items are more easily remembered than non-humorous ones.
Humor is special, needs increased cognitive processing time to be understood, and causes emotional arousal. So it's easier to remember.
There is also the PICTURE SUPERIORITY EFFECT - concepts learned by viewing pictures are more easily and frequently recalled than those learned by written word.
Wanna know why they took 3 years putting us through the Anon boot camp? The LAG EFFECT - learning is greater when researching is spread out over time, as opposed to studying the same in a compressed timeframe.
There is the SPACING EFFECT, too - information is better recalled if exposure to it is repeated over a long span of time rather than a short one.
Fight the CURSE OF KNOWLEDGE: When better-informed people find it extremely difficult to think about problems from the perspective of lesser-informed people.
Far from exhausting the subject, this should provide a window into the deep thinking behind the Q operation. But there are also the cognitive biases from the 'unawake'.
I don't have a formula as to how to disarm these mental traps they fell under, and make them see the light - but I guess knowing the processes is a first step.
Basic problem with liberals, now: ANCHORING - they rely too heavily, or "anchor" their deranged opinions, on the first piece of information acquired on the subject: ORANGE MAN BAD.
They promote the AVAILABILITY CASCADE: a self-reinforcing process in which a lie gains more and more plausibility through its increasing repetition in public discourse.
Yes - D's, Globalists and Goebbels are in the very same page.
All PC bullshit is built on top of the COURTESY BIAS - the tendency to give an opinion that is more socially correct than one's true opinion, so as to avoid offending anyone.
The left weaponized this bias into the Orwellian persecution/substitution of words, and finally in the current "Cancel Culture".
Since Globalists control "scientific" organizations, they play HARD the AUTHORITY BIAS card: people attribute greater accuracy to the opinion of an 'authority' figure and are more influenced by that opinion.
As they prove themselves to be wrong over and over again about almost everything, the turn to their IRRATIONAL ESCALATION.
That's when people justify increased investment in a decision, based on the cumulative prior investment, despite clear evidence suggesting that the decision was wrong.
Their basic M.O. is GROUPTHINK: the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an irrational or dysfunctional decision-making outcome.
The group members minimize conflict and reach a 'consensus' decision without critical evaluation by actively suppressing dissenting viewpoints, and by isolating themselves from outside influences.
These outside influences that they choose to ignore is THE REAL WORLD.
I hope this sheds some light in Q Op and also in the crooked way most deranged leftists think.
