Dr. Carol Tavris

Recently Jason Korbus and I had the privilege to speak to Dr. Carol Tavris. Dr. Tavris is a social psychologist and author whose work has tackled such topics as misconceptions about anger and feminism. Her latest book is called “Mistake Were Made, But Not By Me” and touches on how cognitive dissonance theory and other ideas from psychological research explain how, as the subtitle suggests, people justify foolish beliefs, bad decisions, and hurtful acts.  This is a very interesting interview; trust me you want to download this.
