Conspiracy theories may be attractive to people who seek certainty when facing unclear situations – that was an assumption of research conducted by Marta Marchlewska (University of Warsaw) together with Aleksandra Cichocka (University of Kent, UK) and Małgorzata Kossowska from our Centre. In the series of two studies they showed that high need for cognitive closure (NFCC) predicted endorsement of conspiracy explanations when they were situationally available.

The paper is being published in European Journal of Social Psychology – the abstract to be found at this site. Well done!
