Seize the Moment Podcast

Sep 7, 2020

On episode 66, we welcome back Liz Dorval to discuss the Dunning-Kruger Effect; social and psychological strategies to mitigate its harm such as fostering the growth mindset, eliminating echo chambers, and teaching how to accept feedback; appealing to authority because of our general inability to be specialists in a multitude of areas; why self-diagnosing is often counter-productive; Jordan Peterson’s fear of tyranny and why his reasoning is biased; how con-men use sophistry to deceive the public; and why Dunning-Kruger doesn’t exist on the intellectual extremes.

Leon Garber is a philosophical writer, contemplating and elucidating the deep recesses of man's soul. He is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor/Psychotherapist — specializing in Existential Psychotherapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Trauma Therapy — and manages a blog exploring issues of death, self-esteem, love, freedom, life-meaning, and mental health/mental illness, from both empirical and personal viewpoints.

Alen D. Ulman is a content creator and life long auto-didact.
