Weird Science: Psychology Edition Midnight Facts for Insomniacs

    • Comedy

Humans like to believe that we're the pinnacle of evolution, but are we truly logical, rational creatures? If so, why do we self-sabotage? Why do we cling to irrational beliefs even when they make our lives difficult? Do we control our own motivations and behaviors, or are we under the influence of psychological phenomena that most of us barely understand? 


 


Brains are weird. Here's proof.  


 


In this episode:


Cognitive Dissonance

The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon

The Scarcity Principle

Mere-Exposure Effect

False Consensus Effect

Belief Perseverance

Attribution Errors

The Spotlight Effect

Illusion of Transparency

Recency Bias

The Madonna-Whore Complex
