I read a quick book yesterday arguing that there are various psychological types in any organization, and that because of this, it's crucial to address those personality types the way they need to be addressed.  Some of them prefer stories to data. 

So as much as I like to think that vaccination rates would improve if people would share data better--I've been heartily unimpressed by a lot of the vaccination materials I've gotten from doctors--I've got to concede this study probably has a point. 

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
