Valuing intellectual honesty etc. is similar to valuing your own happiness. If that's what you care about, then maybe ignoring evidence is your best option. But if your terminal value is something outside of yourself, then intellectual honesty etc. may not be good instrumental values.

I am not sure I understand this comment. Wouldn't willfully ignoring evidence be intellectually dishonest? What do you mean by "your terminal value is something outside yourself"?

Also, I was just responding to "What is wrong with being hypocrite or a coward", in the sense that many people feel this is wrong.
