Abstract

Beliefs play a significant role in defining personality and the sense of self. They dictate one’s behaviour and feelings towards others. They are our compass in life. Belief is acceptance of something as true without proof which Influences one’s values and morals, such as God is all-knowing and creator of heaven and earth. Beliefs about ourselves and others are at the heart of many economic and social decisions, with large consequences for welfare. This becomes more important at the time of pandemic when conspiracy theory has been widely accepted in our part of the world.
