What is Failure? W/ Patric Schiess Change My Mind

    • Science

In this episode I am accompanied by Patric Schiess in order to discuss the meaning of failure and how this is a relative perception of the accomplishment of one's ambitions which are highly influenced by our social environment and to what we (as a social animal) perceive will contribute status to our inner out of phase ancestral 24h-status-counter, making us feel realized due to evolutionary reasons explained in the episode.



Other peripheral topics like the moral capacity to complain, the progressive process of realizing your own ignorance, how doing what is statistically proven to be beneficial(eating healthily, doing sport, studying…) is what we should do when we do not know the specifics of what would be optimal for us, how to improve habits through the building of discipline via progressive exposure to uncomfortable situations or modifying our environment to promote beneficial habits and discourage the bad ones are also contained in the conversation.
