they are unable to process the cognitive dissonance without completely crashing.

I've seen this said often, but haven't found any study or evidence showing it to be true. Why exactly can't people adjust to new facts? Is this assertion merely predictive programming? I feel like I could just say "oh I was wrong" and move on.

There have been a couple times where I was completely wrong about something I was adamant about. It was kind of a '5 stages thing' of realizing I was wrong, realizing 2nd/3rd/etc order effects were caused, determining if there was anything I urgently needed to or could fix, and 'laying low' / taking a backseat for a while. And learning to consider other edge cases in the future.
