Episode 9 — Self-Fulfilling Prophecies
w/ Inder & Ish
Lets face it, its always easier to know what's going to happen rather than face the music of the unknown. It's like we're all desperate to know how our happily ever after is going to come to be and we'll take any and every clue along the way to help that process. But are we selectively picking up certain clues??
In this episode, Inder & Ish uncover a concept that sheds light on self-fulfilling prophecies — when a person unknowingly causes an outcome, simply because they expected it to come true. So, what's that concept?? It's the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon aka frequency illusion aka cognitive bias... Intrigued by all this mumbo jumbo?? Listen in. You might just change your outlook on your day by doing so 😏.
