Sounds plausible to me. But so many people already don't make decisions that they are able to credibly and confidently defend later anyway, but they try mightily to defend them anyway. Some even double down on their nonsensical decision, never wanting to "back down". As Leon Festinger said, "finally, suppose that he is presented with evidence, unequivocal and undeniable evidence, that his belief is wrong: what will happen? The individual will frequently emerge, not only unshaken, but even more convinced of the truth of his beliefs than ever before. Indeed, he may even show a new fervor about convincing and converting other people to his view." AI will rob these people of nothing. In fact, scarily, such people often reach heights of power and AI might even be an improvement on them.
