How Fame Alters Our Perceptions

  • The popularity or fame of an individual or a piece of art (like a painting, song or a movie) alters how we perceive it.
  • The characteristics and behaviour of the people among whom fame spreads matters more than the actual merit or quality.
  • A study showed that more people liked the songs that were topping the charts, copying the behaviour of other listeners, and if the same songs were arranged randomly, they were not chosen or liked that much.

We, humans, seek stories.

It is the tendency to focus on successful narratives of influential leaders, who offer promising insights backed with credibility.

Stories built around individuals provide relatability and a sense of being in the shoes of the people involved, living in the narrative.
