People don't like to learn they've been fooled

Unless it is at a magic show.

At a magic show you go in knowing you're going to be fooled, so it is okay.

In a situation where you've been unknowingly fooled, its best for the ego to remain in the dark in order to maintain the illusion.

Great quote! It sums it up quite succinctly.
