Ep 11. Discussing the antidote to superficial conversations

“Imperfections are not inadequacies; they are reminders that we're all in this together.” 
― Brené Brown

As we continue to dive in to human psychology, and explore the underlying processes and algorithms we use to have conversations, we have now come across two very important concepts: Social Desirability Bias & Impression Management.

These two aspects, different sides of the same coin, really rob us of being able to lean into deeper conversations to explore meaning questions and find meaningful answers.
