Trampled Underfoot Podcast – 133 – Comfortably Dumb

In Episode 133 of the Trampled Underfoot Podcast: Does a person’s attitude, likability, or personality change as we age, or do we maintain the same type of personality throughout our lives? Mark Lindsay has some opinions about it that might be just the opposite of what you think. Eloy Escagedo then shares his thoughts following his viewing of a video concerning a scientific round-table discussion of the Cambrian Explosion. They came to the conclusion that the math just doesn’t add up. Had enough time passed since the earth’s creation for such complex organisms to naturally evolve? Next the conversation gets into a scientific study that led to what’s become known as the Dunning-Kruger Effect. That’s a bias that states that people with low ability at a task tend to overestimate their ability. (When you hear about the case that sparked the study, you’ll be blown away.) Are we really as intelligent as we think we are, or are we all more or less just Comfortably Dumb?

We’re confident that we’ll keep you entertained in this episode of Trampled Underfoot Podcast, with your hosts, Mark Lindsay and Eloy Escagedo, but will we really? You be the judge!
