Daniel Kahneman – Thinking, Fast and Slow (2011)

A general limitation of the human mind is its imperfect ability to reconstruct past states of knowledge, or beliefs that have changed. Once you adopt a new view of the world (or of any part of it), you immediately lose much of your ability to recall what you used to believe before your mind changed.

(YANSS 124, “Belief Change Blindness,” focused on this)
