Opportunity, Why Is It So Hard to Be Rational?, The New Yorker, Joshua Rothman
  • The real challenge isn’t being right but knowing how wrong you might be.
  • In a polemical era, rationality can be a kind of opinion hygiene—a way of washing off misjudged views. 
  • In a fractious time, it promises to bring the court to order. When the world changes quickly, we need strategies for understanding it. We hope, reasonably, that rational people will be more careful, honest, truthful, fair-minded, curious, and right than irrational ones.
  • Why Is It So Hard to Be Rational?, Joshua Rothman, August 16, 2021, The New Yorker.
              Alert, Thinking straight is just part of the work, The New Yorker, Joshua Rothman
                • The realities of rationality are humbling. Know things; want things; use what you know to get what you want. It sounds like a simple formula. But, in truth, it maps out a series of escalating challenges. In search of facts, we must make do with probabilities. Unable to know it all for ourselves, we must rely on others who care enough to know. We must act while we are still uncertain, and we must act in time—sometimes individually, but often together. For all this to happen, rationality is necessary, but not sufficient.
                Opportunity, Leaders and followers must be cognitively flexible, HBR, Adam Grant
                  • The legend of Steve Jobs is that he transformed our lives with the strength of his convictions.
                  • The reality is that much of Apple’s success came from his team’s pushing him to rethink his positions. 
                  • If Jobs hadn’t surrounded himself with people who knew how to change his mind, he might not have changed the world.
                  • In a turbulent world, success depends not just on cognitive horsepower but also on cognitive flexibility. When leaders lack the wisdom to question their convictions, followers need the courage to persuade them to change their minds.

                    • Intelligence is usually seen as the ability to think and learn, but in a rapidly changing world, there’s another set of cognitive skills that might matter more: the ability to rethink and unlearn.
                    • In this rapidly changing world, learning to question your opinions and open other people’s minds can position you for excellence at work and wisdom in life.
                    • In our daily lives, too many of us favor the comfort of conviction over the discomfort of doubt. 
                    • We listen to opinions that make us feel good, instead of ideas that make us think hard. 
                    • We see disagreement as a threat to our egos, rather than an opportunity to learn. 
                    • There’s evidence that being good at thinking can make us worse at rethinking.
