Quotes by Jan-Willem van Prooijen

Conspiracy belief“belief in conspiracy theories is positively associated with intuitive rather than analytic thinking. Consistently, higher education predicts lower conspiracy beliefs, a finding that is partly mediated by a tendency among the less educated to attribute agency and intentionality where it does not exist, and stronger analytic thinking skills among the higher educated.”2018Https://doi.org/10.1002/ejsp.2530
Conspiracy theories/Academic research/Projectionthey are emotional given that negative emotions and not rational deliberations cause conspiracy beliefs; and they are social as conspiracy beliefs are closely associated with psychological motivations underlying intergroup conflict”2018Https://doi.org/10.1002/ejsp.2530
Conspiracy theory/Academic research“they are emotional given that negative emotions and not rational deliberations cause conspiracy beliefs... One limitation... is that the field is lacking a solid theoretical framework that contextualizes previous findings, that enables novel predictions, and that suggests interventions to reduce the prevalence of conspiracy theories in society.”2018Belief in conspiracy theories: Basic principles of an emerging research domain https://doi.org/10.1002/ejsp.2530
