Seize the Moment Podcast

Apr 25, 2021

On episode 92, Alen and Leon discuss the book The Scout Mindset by Julia Galef, focusing on how to cultivate an open-mind, the benefits and pitfalls of self-deception, holding your identity loosely, the right ways to interpret critical feedback, how to develop short-term rewards for long-term goals, the importance of feeling pride for the person you're becoming, Darwin's dual theory of natural selection and sexual selection and admitting that he was wrong about evolution, Alen's journey from defensiveness and suspicion to learning how to consider alternative perspectives, Leon's intellectual overconfidence as indicated by the results of an objective, certainty and validity test, and why the scout mindset is a continual process rather than a destination.
