Da arte de acreditar (II) 

There are times when inaccurate or fictitious stories are told and retold because just they seem so plausible. When what we hear could so easily be true, we often let down our critical guard, accept what we are told, and pass it on as is. Our standards for what is plausible, furthermore, are not always so high: sometimes what is necessary is a sense of ironic plausibility.

Thomas Gilovich, How we know what isn’t so.
