Costs of rationality
Becoming more rational can only guarantee one thing: what you believe will include more of the truth. Knowing that truth might help you achieve your goals or the truth may cause you to become a pariah. Be sure that you really want to know the truth before you commit to finding it, otherwise you may flinch from it.
