209 - Ravens and Lemurs and Theories (oh, my!)

Think Significantly

Mar 29 2022 • 42 mins

We’ve all got at least one story where we believe that some covert but influential organization was responsible for a circumstance or event. This means we all have experienced, on some level, the thought patterns similar to those who believe in conspiracy theories. There are a myriad of reasons why some people apply those thought patterns more broadly than others, including our personality, our trust in institutions, our friend circles, and our perceived group affiliations. In this episode, we discuss the appeal of the conspiracy theory, how to avoid them, and how to try to help others steer clear of them.
