Do you believe people's core preferences are primarily fixed or subject to change based on experience or reason?
By core preferences, I do not mean a preference for diet coke vs pepsi. I am referring to things like core attitudes (such as political, philosophical, moral, etc outlook). Preferences for one type of reasoning over another. Self centered vs society centered viewpoint. And other basic assumptions people take into consideration when processing the optimal solution to a problem whether personal or world wide (or anything in between).
