On this episode of Learning How to See, Brian, Jacqui, and Richard talk about the next two biases that look at the social-political dimensions of seeing:
- Confidence Bias: We mistake confidence for competence, and we are all vulnerable to the lies of confident people. Our brains prefer a confident lie to a hesitant truth.
- Conspiracy Bias: When we feel shame, we are vulnerable to stories that cast us as the victims of an evil conspiracy by some enemy “other.” Our brains like stories in which we’re either the hero or the victim … never the villain.
