Talking to Strangers Episode 4

The Book Interrupted women continue their conversation on “Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know” by Malcolm Gladwell.  “Friends”, TV, The Stanley Milgram Experiment, authoritative figures, body language, and attractiveness - how do all these things influence our perceptions of strangers and our interactions with them? Discussion Points: Error in the Friends section - it’s Monica not Rachel! Does your face show emotion the way that other people expect you to react? How has TV affected how we interpret emotion on strangers’ faces? Does anyone else’s nose tingle when other people touch their nose? Experiments to see how people react to shocking situations  The Stanley Milgram Experiment Do you listen to authority figures, even against your own judgment? Body language and attractiveness - how much do they impact our perceptions of others?

The Holy Fool Do you default to truth? Relationships and red flags - do you see the truth when there are signs that they are lying? Data versus interactions - how much does personal interaction change the way you interpret data? How does race and gender oppression affect sentencing and assessment of situations? Was this book upsetting to you? Group enhancements - do you follow the group?
