Ep. #145: What If? Counterfactual Curiosity, with Lily FitzGibbon
Have you ever felt a burning desire to know what might have been, had you chosen a different course of action? That's "counterfactual curiosity" -- the desire to know about possible alternative outcomes -- and it can sometimes cause us pain and regret. So why have it? Dr. Lily FitzGibbon, postdoctoral research fellow at the School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences at the University of Reading (UK), helps me understand better. Our theme and other music are by Sean Balick.
