478: Maria Konnikova | The Confidence Game

January 13th, 2016

Episode 462 of 806 episodes

Maria Konnikova (@mkonnikova) shows us how we can defend ourselves against would-be con artists and use the same principles for more benign purposes in her new book The Confidence Game. The Cheat Sheet: As it turns out, you can fool an honest man. But cynics -- by their own overconfidence in being savvy and "scamproof" -- are just as susceptible to deception. Technology and the abundance of information most of us freely surrender to the Internet makes the con artist's job easier than ever before. What type of person becomes a con artist? How can we avoid getting scammed? Understand how belief works, why we over-believe in some things (even when we have no evidence for them), and how this plays into our susceptibility to deception. And so much more... Show notes at http://theartofcharm.com/podcast-episodes/maria-konnikova-the-confidence-game-episode-478/ HELP US SPREAD THE WORD!
