What was that study on common sense results?

A year or so ago, someone did some research into our responses to reports of research studies. It seems that we often find the results reasonable and we tend to see the findings as corroborating our own common sense. But as I remember, what they were really discovering was something not about research findings, but about our way of interpreting results and our way of hearing and making sense of new information. But for the life of me I don’t know how to find this research and get at the kernels of the findings. Does anyone remember the material or have an idea how I might dig it out of the archives of academia? Thank you, dopers. (Bibliophage???) xo, C.
