Is there a word for someone having a preference for a belief of any kind, while having believed very different views previously, in a contrarian sense? To believe something as a result of or partly caused by believing the opposite prior, and having some newfound awakening thereby giving the person a preference for said belief? A word for thinking one was wrong before and making that partly why they believe something opposite than before now, not directly caused by it, but supported by it.

    If you're using the term contrarian in its usual sense, the person who reversed their contrarian thinking has recanted and is now orthodox. – Lawrence Apr 19 at 2:00
