“Why you think you’re right—even if you’re wrong”

Are you intrigued when someone’s perspective challenges your own, or are you more likely to defend your own viewpoint no matter what? Take 10 minutes to listen to this fascinating Ted talk by writer Julia Galef about how our mindset impacts how we interpret, process information, and evaluate evidence.
