An interesting post about the intersection of naive realism, group dynamics, perception, and attribution.I’ve not read the book from the post’s author, but I think I’ll add it to my “I really should read this someday soon” stack.
A preview of the post’s conclusion: Other people form into groups, and those group memberships affect how people’s perceptions and meaning-making in not very helpful ways. Of course, YOU probably don’t do that. YOU probably don’t let group membership affect your judgment or perception in any way. I know nobody at the University of Oregon does. But I’m sure other people do.
TOTH to Scott Peppet.
