Half the students were in favor of it and thought that it deterred crime; the other half were against it and thought that it had no effect on crime.
The students were asked to respond to two studies. One provided data in support of the deterrence argument, and the other provided data that called it into question.
Both studies—you guessed it—were made up, and had been designed to present what were, objectively speaking, equally compelling statistics. At the end of the experiment, the students were asked once again about their views. Imagine, Mercier and Sperber suggest, a mouse that thinks the way we do. A recent experiment performed by Mercier and some European colleagues neatly demonstrates this asymmetry. Participants were asked to answer a series of simple reasoning problems. They were then asked to explain their responses, and were given a chance to modify them if they identified mistakes.
The majority were satisfied with their original choices; fewer than fifteen per cent changed their minds in step two. Once again, they were given the chance to change their responses. About half the participants realized what was going on. Among the other half, suddenly people became a lot more critical. This lopsidedness, according to Mercier and Sperber, reflects the task that reason evolved to perform, which is to prevent us from getting screwed by the other members of our group.
There was little advantage in reasoning clearly, while much was to be gained from winning arguments. Nor did they have to contend with fabricated studies, or fake news, or Twitter. Steven Sloman, a professor at Brown, and Philip Fernbach, a professor at the University of Colorado, are also cognitive scientists.
They, too, believe sociability is the key to how the human mind functions or, perhaps more pertinently, malfunctions. Virtually everyone in the United States, and indeed throughout the developed world, is familiar with toilets.
Whole Life Challenge | 7 Habits (That Might Change Your Whole Life)
A typical flush toilet has a ceramic bowl filled with water. But how does this actually happen? In a study conducted at Yale, graduate students were asked to rate their understanding of everyday devices, including toilets, zippers, and cylinder locks. They were then asked to write detailed, step-by-step explanations of how the devices work, and to rate their understanding again.
Apparently, the effort revealed to the students their own ignorance, because their self-assessments dropped.
Welcome to a place where your ideas lead to something big. Welcome to Bosch.
Toilets, it turns out, are more complicated than they appear. People believe that they know way more than they actually do. What allows us to persist in this belief is other people. In the case of my toilet, someone else designed it so that I can operate it easily. This is something humans are very good at.
Remarkable Changes: Turning Life's Challenges Into Opportunities
This borderlessness, or, if you prefer, confusion, is also crucial to what we consider progress. When it comes to new technologies, incomplete understanding is empowering. Where it gets us into trouble, according to Sloman and Fernbach, is in the political domain.
