There have been arguments concerning the ability to measure rational belief. In this debate, a credence or belief has been determined as being measurable by some authors and subjectively orderable by others. I would argue that our conceptual evaluation of belief is more accurately expressed as a level of belief in the credence itself. That is, individuals choose to believe that they hold a level of belief. Moreover, truth is objective in nature but individuals select credences that may be at odds with the determination of a true state.
