"once someone has made up their mind, for some if not many, no amount of contrary information will change their minds."

This is probably the biggest weakness in humans. Facts do not matter once we've made up our minds. This will always hold us back from really gaining an education and having a lifetime of learning.
I've met a few open minded individuals in my life but for the most part we're all closed minded, once we've formed an opinion.
It seems much worse now, at least politically. If a person only watches one news channel or only listens to certain AM radio stations, they will almost certainly never give the other view a chance, even when facts prove their source is wrong.

This is a great little video about that, from a segment on CBS Sunday Morning. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2X2QrWwRy RM
