Less Bullshit This Year

via Aeon:

Bullshit is much harder to detect when we want to agree with it. The first and most important step is to recognise the limits of our own cognition.

Something to think about as we walk into 2017. First blog post of the year. Funny. Kinda. Sorta. Not really.

We must be humble about our ability to justify our own beliefs. These are the keys to adopting a critical mindset – which is our only hope in a world so full of bullshit.

If we really want to grow this year, then, it only makes sense that we become more humble in our approach to things. Perhaps, everything.

I want to have that attitude this year. I want to learn a ton.
