Word of the Day


in·​doc·​tri·​nate | \ in-ˈdäk-trə-ˌnāt \
indoctrinated; indoctrinating
transitive verb
1 to imbue with a usually partisan or sectarian opinion, point of view, or principle
2 to instruct especially in fundamentals or rudiments : teach


Bob never tried to indoctrinate his students at any time during his time as a teacher. He wished, instead, to expand their horizons.


Coming up with a workable illustration for “indoctrinate” was difficult.

I hope it works to have used an optical illusion.

It may well be a stretch as an appropriate illustration, but I think illusions try to “convince” us of something which isn’t true, though it may take some work to see through the illusion, like indoctrination.
