What word would you use to describe a person who chooses not to be informed in fear of change?
For example: If someone doesn't want to be informed about brutal animal cruelty because they know they will be disgusted and possibly stop consuming meat.
Example 2: If someone knows something bad happened but chooses not to be told, because then it is as it never happened.
You wouldn't call this ignorant or naive. What would you call someone who chooses to be uneducated in fear it will somehow alter their rhythm of life?
