Weekly Filet #52: You Are Not So Smart. And more.

This week’s top recommendation

We think we understand others better than they understand us. We think of our own actions as neutral and judge others by theirs. Good read from a book titled “You Are Not So Smart” by David McRaney, released last autumn. In this excerpt, McRaney is connecting dots between an infamous psychological experiment in the 50ies, today’s social media and the perception of self and other in general to make this point: You are driven to create and form groups and then believe others are wrong just because they are others. The trailer to the book is worth watching, too.
