Default Mat is typical of most farmer folk

Most common folk mistrust the One Power, and Mat might be the only character representing that point of view among the main characters, especially given that so many of them channel. Whether the dagger accentuated it doesn't matter, it's a very legitimate (if wrong) bias, that he keeps confirming by ignoring contradictory information. I think that makes him more realistic, as I know quite a few folk who like to keep their prejudices intact...
