Why do you feel some people place more importance on being confident than being knowledgeable?


I'm interested in varying perspectives - we seem to be so frequently carried by confident, unambiguous information by people in our culture over scientific and evidence-based information, as if they were equal in weight. Why is that? Are we so uncomfortable with not knowing, we prefer to believe in the concreteness of a person's views, even if it's possible they may not know what they're talking about?
