THE INTELLIGENCE TRAP Why Smart People Make Dumb Mistakes

by | Read by Simon Slater

Contemporary Culture • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Simon Slater's narration of Robson's meditation on intelligence (and its limits) is exceptionally easy on the ear. His pleasant British voice sounds energetic and amused as he invites listeners to consider the sometimes-stupid things smart people do--and how to cultivate a mindset that protects oneself from such errors in thinking. Listeners will enjoy learning that smart folks are perhaps even more susceptible to such errors. Robson's exploration of this "intelligence trap"--including concepts like strategic ignorance, functional stupidity, and motivated reasoning--is rooted in entertaining anecdotes and peer-reviewed sources. Highlighting values like curiosity and intellectual humility, Robson invites us all to be a little bit smarter about how we use our human intelligence.
