You have no idea who you are
Have you ever wonder why nobody tells the smelly guy that he smells?
Or why he can’t smell himself or notice that we move away every time he shows up?
The reason is because we all are the smelly guy in some way.
As smart as you are, when it comes to judge yourself, you are always wrong.
You are not nice
Even if you try hard and you think you are nice, you are not.
No matter how many self-deprecating jokes you make or how much you talk about how you suck and play the role of the lovable loser, deeply inside you think you are nicer than you actually are.
Every single human being overestimates how generous he is.
A study from the Department of Psychology at the University of Arizona reveals that we have an accurate idea of how selfish the rest of the world is but we don’t perceive ourselves as selfish.
We all picture ourselves as an elite moral minority.
You are not free
Remember that interview where Charlie Sheen was giving advices to Lindsay about drugs?
That’s the perfect example.
That man was convinced he was not in the same situation than Lindsay and he pictured himself as authorized to give her advices about drugs and self-control.
Given the fact he is a public figure we just laugh about him and make fun of the situation.
You should stop laughing because science says that bizarre double standard like this apply to all of us.
While we are away from drugs, alcohol and promiscuous sex, we are not able to calculate how much of temptation we can handle.
You think you can handle a lot more temptation than you truly can.
The surer you are about your self-control, the more likely you will end up screwed at the first opportunity.
Without consciously thinking it, you assume that our own future is an open horizon of possibilities.
You think that your future depends on your actions and that your day to day choices really matter.
And you think that any day, you’ll break free of the matrix and just fly away.
You are racist
Think about the following.
Racism is a huge problem and it influences jury decisions, hiring practices and every kind of organizational decision.
So it is huge.
Now tell me, how many racists do you know?
So? How can racism be such a gigantic social issue if we don’t even have racists?
It’s simple, we are all racists and we lie about it.
the world must know the truth!
