    Psychologists conducting various studies of human personality, and sometimes offer the world the most interesting things. One such discovery, interesting not only for psychologists, was the fact that people believe in any nonsense that is published online Internet. One reservation, these people derive most of the information from the Internet. This study was conducted by American psychologists who have studied a group of students over several years. As it turned out, the students almost entirely perceived as true, false, even delusional information. Students were informed that somewhere in the world, there is a so-called Isle of Dogs.

    On this island live happy dog for food which, on the island live a great number of rabbits. And was also false information about the tree octopus that crawled into the trees and feeding birds. But even more interesting was the conclusion American scientists. They decided that they must create a system that would limit the perception of nonsense people! I wonder how this system will look and function? Who will decide, is nonsense any of the information or not? Maybe the whole thing in education, when people on the basis of data at its disposal, can distinguish delirium from credible information. A system that will help people distinguish false information on the true, can be very effective tool to manipulate the masses. Surely, in such a system will necessarily be part of people, and people can choose those that may solve someone's favor. For example, in a major news site, you can declare nonsense statement of opposition, to refute the facts or statistics. The man himself has to decide what to believe him, and what constitutes a lie. Otherwise, people may be just a puppet, it is enough to tell him what believe and what not. Can you believe the nonsense from the Internet?
