Being Wrong Feels Like Being Right

WalkOffCliff Below is a wonderful talk by Kathryn Schulz, self described "wrongologist" and the author of Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error. I especially liked this statement of hers:"One of the problems with being wrong … is that it feels like being right."

This is so true and it is one of the reasons I strive to replace statements of "no doubt" with the more philosophical statement: "to know doubt."

After listening to her presentation, however, I'm even more convinced we need to teach unlearning in kindergarten and that each of us must strive to possess a little more intellectual humility."
