Your answer says something about why you might fall for online misinformation…

Your brain has two ways of thinking: 

  • Thinking fast, aka following your gut reaction, and…
  • Thinking slow, aka taking time to reflect.

We’re more likely to think fast when we’re scrolling online, and that means we can fall for misinformation.

You may even end up sharing it — inadvertently harming your friends, family, or followers.

So next time you see something questionable online

  • Take control by thinking slowly
  • Ask yourself: Is this actually true?
  • Question your gut reaction
