Embracing Wrong with Kathryn Schulz

Have you ever seen a business that made a mistake? Duh. Of course. I work in RA/fraud/risk etc. I deal with the consequences of mistakes all the time. Especially the mistakes made by those stupid people in Marketing/IT/our outsourced supplier etc. Have you ever made a mistake yourself? Err…. yeah, I suppose. A few. Not many. What mistakes will you make next week? None. Stupid question. Exactly. The psychology of being right and wrong is an impediment to being right, and leads us to be even more wrong. Check out this refreshing TED talk by “wrongologist” Kathryn Schulz.
