What if we are mistaken about what other people actually believe? Turns out...that’s often the case. In this episode, we explore the reality—and the implications—of collective illusions, which is the social phenomenon of people mis-perceiving what the majority actually thinks or believes. Following the work of Todd Rose and the think tank Populace, we dive into the ominous reality that collective illusions are proliferating, and what we can do to reverse the trend. The invitation that emerges is a beautiful one: to do the work of knowing others (and being known ourselves) in entirely new ways.
