Epistemic Humility

The Epistemic Humility tag is for posts about when, how, and to what extent we should update our beliefs based on what others appear to believe - even if we don't know the reasons underlying those others' beliefs, or even if we don't find those reasons compelling. (The term "epistemic modesty" is also often used in this context.) This tag can also be used for other broadly topics, such as social epistemology, how to balance inside- and outside-views, or how to share information and conclusions efficiently without causing information cascades or anchoring people.
