Mind Reading

8646I know what you’re thinking… or do I? We’re constantly making inferences about the thoughts and beliefs of others but how often do we get it right? On this episode, Dr. Nicholas Epley, professor at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business discusses his book, Mindwise. He’ll tell us about mistakes we consistently make when trying to reason what our spouses want and how our colleagues see us. Avoiding these mistakes can even aid the counter-terrorism effort.

Where’s Carnac? 😉
