I’m Right – You’re Wrong: How to Think Clearer, Argue Better and Stop Lying to Yourself
From childhood we are taught to be right. We are taught to win – to beat others. Regardless of what we experience, we cling to this need. The result is a lifetime of self-deception, bad communication and damaged relationships. The unconscious need to defend ourselves manifests itself through faulty reasoning, bad arguments and terrible decisions. Drawing on extensive research, statistics and examples, I explore how we distort our arguments to maintain our world view. You will emerge from this journey with better communication skills, better reasoning and finally be able to stop lying to yourself.
The Little Book of Stupidity: How We Lie to Ourselves and Don’t Believe Others
Are stupidity and sanity related? The truth may surprise you.
We are all masters of self-delusion. Every day we make decisions that aren’t based on logic, but rather stories. Stories that we tell ourselves about who we are, what we want and why we want it. Take a journey through the statistics, experiments and psychology of stupidity to reveal one important fact – self-delusions are part of being human.
You will emerge from this journey – wiser, more compassionate and with a better understanding of yourself.
The Little Book of Persuasion: Defend Yourself by Becoming a Skilled Persuader
Everyday we engage in psychological battle to persuade others or be persuaded by them. The history of persuasion dates back to the Ancient Greeks who valued rhetoric as an essential skill. Times have changed and rhetoric has lost its place as a fundamental skill of reasoning and logic. This leaves us open and unarmed against skilled persuaders.
Persuasion is more than just tactics and methods of social compliance. Understanding how we are persuaded opens the doorway to a deeper understanding of our automatic brain processes and biases. Expert persuaders tap into these processes and use them against us for their own benefit.
This book is a journey into these techniques. You will emerge from it smarter, more persuasive and better equipped to defend yourself.
