Profiled in this intelligent thought piece is Dr Arie Kruglanski, a social psychologist and professor at the University of Maryland. Dr Kruglanski studies the psychology of polarization, and what motivates individuals to join terrorist organizations (like ISIS).
Kruglanski coined the term "Cognitive Closure” to describe the moment that you make a decision or form a judgment. You literally close your mind off to new information. During times of great uncertainty — like the world right now — everybody’s need for “Closure” increases. We make judgments more quickly, regardless ofther facts. We’re increasingly drawn to leaders who offer certainty and paint simple solutions. But “certainty” can
be dangerous thing.
