And next to that is a link to https://arxiv.org/abs/2001.10488 "Statistical Consequences of Fat Tails: Real World Preasymptotics, Epistemology, and Applications" by Nassim Taleb which states "Many "biases" found in psychology become entirely rational under more sophisticated probability distributions".

May be "hardwiredness" is not all that hard wired. Or, put it other way, the hardwiredness is not in humans under study but in humans who study them.

I don't think that humans would achieve what we have today being hardwired to dismiss facts that don't fit their worldview.
