Talking to Strangers Episode 3

The Book Interrupted women share their personal journals while reading “Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know” by Malcolm Gladwell. So many things to talk about with this book in the group chat: default to truth, relationships, oppression, the Holy Fool and more.   Discussion Points: Personal journals The illusion of asymmetric insight - do you think you know more about someone else than they do about you? 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?
