So often we live inside our heads. We worry too much about ourselves, and we fail to see the signs that others are uncomfortable, anxious or afraid.

In one of my biggest career pipe dreams, I'd be featured on NPR's @HiddenBrain, alongside Philip Zimbardo and Stanley Milgram.

Today it happened!!

Love what they put together on how we underestimate our influence over others, in good ways and bad: https://www.npr.org/2020/02/20/807758704/the-influence-you-have-why-were-blind-to-our-power-over-others

We often think of the many ways that other people influence us. But what about the ways we influence *them*? It turns out that we vastly underestimate our power over others. https://apple.co/2D5k8v3

We have plenty of chances to lie, cheat and steal without getting caught. Sometimes we take those opportunities, sometimes we don’t.

We all lie. But what separates the average person from the infamous cheaters we see on the news? @danariely says we like to think it's character — but it's more often opportunity. https://n.pr/2P4M2x0

.@eitanhersh has found that compared to other groups, college-educated white men spend more time consuming politics, and less time *doing* politics.

“The story behind that is about how satisfied you are with the status quo.” https://n.pr/31HxcSp

What kind of person lies about voting? The answer might surprise you: college-educated followers of the news.
