“We’d hope that facts would be the currency of influence,..But often, we guess at who’s the expert—and we’re wrong.” People tend to rely too much on “messy proxies for expertise”—such as a speaker’s confidence level, extroversion, gender and/or race—and not enough on the content of his or her contributions, when making judgments about expertise”

“A possible explanation is dominant group status threat. When members of a dominant group feel threatened, several well-established reactions help these groups regain a sense of dominance and wellbeing. First, perceived threat makes status quo, hierarchical social and political arrangements more attractive (18). Thus, conservatism surges along with a nostalgia for the stable hierarchies of the past. Perceived threat also triggers defense of the dominant ingroup, a greater emphasis on the importance of conformity to group norms, and increased outgroup negativity (19, 20). It is psychologically valuable to see one’s self as part of a dominant group; therefore, when group members feel threatened, this prompts defensive reactions. It is precisely this form of group threat that may have motivated Trump supporters.”
