Mass Psychosis: How An Entire Population Becomes Stupid & How To Get Ahead Of Everyone | Dan Ariely PT 1`
Listen now
Welcome to Impact Theory where I like to bring in guests that will challenge your thinking and help you rise to the occasion of defining your purpose and thoughtfully choosing how to live life well. Today, I’m unpacking the complexity of human rationale and the lack of it as we encounter more global conflicts and people are seemingly losing their minds. The buffet of misinformation which my guest today calls “corrosive” information is highly triggering one-sided social media arguments taken as truth based on number of likes and shares, and biased news outlets that exist to turn profits pushing watered down information in the new era of headline consumption. Mis-information overload is quite literally rotting the brains of people around the world at alarming rates. Dan Ariely, not only challenges the status quo with his groundbreaking research into human irrationality at Duke University, he also confronts the mass psychosis and misinformation epidemic, using his profound understanding of behavioral economics and personal experiences to shed light on our predictably irrational patterns of thought.
