[Dangerous Thoughts] Jacinda Ardern, Emotions, and Reasoning

October 06, 2021

Carter begins by explaining how New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Arden’s assertion that the government should be “your single source of truth” is both immoral and ultimately disastrous from a practical perspective. After thanking community member “Richard” for his input about how to sharpen one’s thinking skills, he tackles the definition for the word of this episode: “emotion.” Finally, he discusses what role emotions play in clear thinking, both positively and negatively, and reviews the latest research about how emotions affect judgement and decision making under the appraisal tendency framework.
