"We cannot imagine, or do not care, that our own certainty, when seen
from outside, must look just as unbecoming and ill-grounded as the
certainty we abhor in others" (164). --Kathryn Schulz
Of course, in a book about wrongness, we knew we were certain to
eventually get to a chapter about certainty, right? I mean, so much of
being wrong links to what Kathryn Schulz refers to as "the allure of
certainty." At one point, Schulz juxtaposes certainty with imagination
and empathy (164). She later notes that our attraction to certainty is
best understood as an aversion to uncertainty" (170).
