‎You Are Not So Smart‎ PDF/EPUB ´ Not So ePUB

An entertaining illumination of the stupid beliefs that make us feel wise Whether you’re deciding which smart phone to purchase or which politician to believe you think you are a rational being whose every decision is based on cool detached logic but here’s the truth You are not so smart You’re just as deluded as the rest of us but that’s okay because being deluded is part of being human Growing out of David McRaney’s popular blog You Are Not So Smart reveals that every decision we make every thought we contemplate and every emotion we feel comes with a story we tell ourselves to explain them but often these stories aren’t true Each short chapter covering topics such as Learned Helplessness Selling Out and the Illusion of Transparency is like a psychology course with all the boring parts taken outBringing together popular science and psychology with humor and wit You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of our irrational thoroughly human behavior

    Turns out everyone thinks they are somehow smarter than the people around them everyone We all are guilty of it We walk into a Wal mart take a look around us and think “what a bunch of freaks and always in Wal mart” But we are also in Wal mart as we make this judgment I don’t go into that store unless they are the only option but every time I look around and I think to myself “do I also look like a freak by just entering this store then magically go back to normal when I leave?”I once thought that I had free will and nothing that Sam Harris wrote proved otherwise but David McRaney may have done just that Nothing we do as humans have anything to do with individual choice We are all manipulated by the media and a bunch of biases and fallaciesHere are a couple of examples of this “Confirmation BiasThe Misconception Your opinions are the result of years of rational objective analysisThe Truth Your opinions are the result of years of paying attention to information which confirmed what you believed while ignoring information which challenged your preconceived notions”So this wasn’t news to me I am not ever going to watch Faux News for any reason unless I had a job that forced me to do it Skeeter down the street would rather eat an arugula salad before watching Rachel Maddow for ten seconds We are only going to pay attention to the things that confirm our beliefsthis explains the existents of Rush Limbaugh That being said I’m right and Skeeter is not “Extinction BurstThe Misconception If you stop engaging in a bad habit the habit will gradually diminish until it disappears from your lifeThe Truth Any time you quit something cold turkey your brain will make a last ditch effort to return you to your habit”Yeah anyone who has dieted most probably everyone unless you are one of those skinny people who “just can’t seem to gain weight”everyone hates you has experienced this You are going along well you are hitting your goalsyou hit a plateau or life gets in the way and you break from the diet a little Before you know it you are back to eating the stuff you really shouldn’t This is due to the ‘extinction burst’ Food tastes good some food tastes better than others and since we evolved to survive we are hard wired to crave high calorie food because that is what determined life or death Ironically that’s what’s killing us today When a reward is taken away from us we throw a fitbut if we still don’t get the reward we give up That’s why you never give in to a two year old during an extinction burst “The Just World FallacyThe Misconception People who are losing at the game of life must have done something to deserve itThe Truth The beneficiaries of good fortune often do nothing to earn it and bad people often get away with their actions without consequences”This is a big one All those people who believe that poor people are poor because they want to be andor are not pulling themselves up by their bootstraps because they just want to live easy off the system and have no idea how to work hard these people are fooled by this fallacy Never do they take into account their own fortunate beginnings as the reason they themselves are not amongst the poor The reason they are not poor is not only because they worked really hard I’m not saying they didn’t work hard and that is a big part of sucess but they are not poor because they didn’t come from poor most likely Many people have risen above their poor beginnings Ben Franklin but it’s a very hard cycle to overcome Those who have a hard time overcoming this may have this fallacy to blame “Learned HelplessnessThe Misconception If you are in a bad situation you will do whatever you can do to escape itThe Truth If you feel like you aren’t in control of your destiny you will give up and accept whatever situation you are in”This is all about having some control in your life If all choice is taken away from a person they tend to give up Residents in nursing homes do better if they get to choose how to arrange their furniture than those who have everything done for them If you are living in a bad situation and you don’t have any control over what happens to you you don’t have access to higher education because it is financially out of reach No one will give you a job no matter how hard you try because you aren’t dressed nice enough and you don’t have enough educationthese people will accept their situation most likely than notThis book was very interesting But I’m feeling a little down because I learned that I am not so smart and I am not that specialThanks David for the depressionsighAll kidding aside I really enjoyed this book Here’s a website if you would like to read You are not so smart As seen on Shelfinflicted
