Scott Adam’s Unfortunate Logical Fallacy, The Appeal to Authority: Himself

August 12, 2018 Independent Press 0

Is Scott Adams an authority to be trusted above your own research and free will? Is this the underlying message, or is it ego? The problem with fame is the ability to influence others often convinces these talents to believe their own sense of intellectual authority. Lots of us don’t know how to think think critically, or the pitfalls of common logical fallacies and psychological defense mechanisms like cognitive dissonance. Your author is not an authority on anything, but humbly asks you learn to trust yourself. I don’t want you to think like me, I just want you to think.
