Other People Always Look Stupid

Other People Always Look Stupid

In the book Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman states that we instantly recognize other people’s stupidity, slips and mistakes, but not our own.

When we see other people we instantly judge their actions as silly or sound, but when we make a mistake ourselves, we have long justifications ready, adding context to our stupid actions that would not be known to anyone.

The Blindspot: Extreme Incentives

There is a blindspot hidden in this behaviour we all have, to see others mistakes instantly but not our own.

High incentives and other motivations are invisible, but everyone is susceptible to them. Incentives cloud our judgement, morality and often prompt us to do things that are not really moral, and we then end up justifying them.

What You See Often Isn’t Reality

Instantly, at face value, it is hard to differentiate between recklessness and boldness, ambitions and greed, a genius and an idiot.

Circumstances, luck and other external factors often end up making something look like what it isn't.

We are not really as great as we think we are, and other people aren’t really as bad as we think.

Not Everything Is Visible

It should not be a surprise that most people do not agree with each other.

  • We often judge others due to lack of context, or lack of information about what is really happening. 
  • Things begin to make sense given enough information.
  • Everyone has had a different kind of life experience with money, relationships, job and family. 
  • Most of that isn’t visible to anyone judging the other person.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
