dc.description.abstractPeople tend to concurrently endorse mutually incompatible beliefs, a tendency we have labeled doublethink. In previous studies, we have shown that it is related to both rational (negatively) and intuitive (positively) thinking styles. We have also previously demonstrated that those who are more prone to doublethink are also more prone to conspiratorial beliefs. Thus the aim of the current study was to further examine doublethink’s relations to cognitive styles and irrational beliefs. We hypothesized that those who are more prone to double-think will also endorse more superstitious beliefs; have a lower need for cognition, and lower ability to suppress intuitive responses. A total of 74 participants filled in the Doublethink, Superstition, and the Need for cognition scales, and the verbal Cognitive Reflection Test (CRT). Results show that proneness to doublethink is positively related to superstition, and negatively related to need for cognition. There was no significant correlation with the CRT measure, which could be due to a ceiling effect. Overall, the results offer further support that double-think is a distinct construct that can be viewed as a thinking style that accommodates inconsistencies more easily, which is why it is favored by those who are more prone to irrational beliefs.sr
