Podcast: Play in new window | Download
This is a podcast I have a difficult time relating to having never been wrong. Rest assured however that if I ever am wrong I’ll be sure to own up to it.
All jokes aside, why is it so hard for libtards to admit they are wrong. The ice caps aren’t going to melt by the year 2020. Wuhan Virus isn’t going to kill millions of people. Any yet the libtards simply can’t admit they are wrong.
Why is it so painful for libtards to admit they are wrong?
Considering they don’t have brains, can libtards even feel the pain of being wrong?
Personal responsibility, the ability to own up to one’s mistakes, is a foundational element of character. It’s also the only way we can grow and get better. But as anyone with any experience being human well understands, dang, it sure can be hard to do.
My guest today explains why, and how you can yet rise to meet this important challenge. His name is Elliot Aronson, and he’s a social psychologist and the co-author of Mistakes Were Made (But Not By Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions, and Hurtful Acts. Elliot first explains how and why we engage in self-justification to avoid facing our mistakes, and how this process is driven by the phenomenon of cognitive dissonance. We then discuss how once you make a decision in a certain direction, good or bad, you become more entrenched in your attitude about it and more likely to continue down that same path, and how this phenomenon represents what Elliot calls “the pyramid of choice.” We end our conversation with how we can learn to approach the mistakes of others with more generosity, and our own mistakes with more honesty.
