Episode Info:

On this episode of the Argument Ninja podcast I share the audio for the three videos I recently produced on Cognitive Biases, Tribalism and Politics. It was designed as one long video presenting one long argument, so the audio works well in this continuous format. 

Show notes and links:

Topics covered:

  • the "two movies" phenomenon (Scott Adams)
  • the distinction between "psychological" value pluralism and "philosophical" value pluralism
  • what is affect bias?
  • what is cultural cognition?
  • your "value channel profile"
  • what is the focusing illusion?
  • what is availability bias?
  • what is the mere-exposure effect?
  • how do these cognitive biases interact to create an exaggerated and distorted perception of reality?
  • a three-channel model of political values
  • value channel profiles for the libertarian, the progressive liberal, and the conservative
  • can I be a libertarian AND a progressive liberal AND a conservative?
  • sources of "pathological tribalism"
  • analogy: Black Mirror, "Men Against Fire"
  • trading off critical thinking values and political values
