    If someone has an entrenched opinion, it can restrict the lengths they will go to in order to pursue new knowledge, particulary if the garnering of that knowledge causes them discomfort because it conflicts with their opinions.

    Good question, genomic-skye!

    thanks...
    true, opinion would to some extent stop the knower to think furthur.
    but isnt the opinion on some kind of fact that gets tested and experiemted and finally turns out to be a theory (when talking in terms of scince that is.)?
    and when considering fields like business and psychology...isnt opinion an important factor as well?

    Ditto. I was almost tempted to write some prosaic rubbish just to see if I could get the OP a fail.
