I can also see a much higher education lending itself to accepting that we don't know nearly as much as we think we do (something we also learn as we grow older: I realize I don't know nearly as much as I thought I did at 18 [having an 18 year old son is reminding me of this, and damn, my parents were right after all]). So a really high education may open you up to even more possibilities.

Same for social: rich people are not crazy, they are eccentric....(quote from Smallville but I am sure from other places as well). At some point, you are rich enough that you want to stick out.

Just throwing that out there as an alternative for some limits. I know that with my 2nd degree I realized the universe was so much larger than it was with the 1st degree (and I suppose it is a good thing I dropped out from getting the 3rd one....I would have realized I know nothing at that point!)

And this would possibly veer into political: maybe factor in social media and its echo chambers....the character could "believe" because all their social contacts/trolls promote the idea....(and now backing away from that landmine)
Mostly lurking about...CT is still my favorite with T5 as a neat tool box to plunder.
