"Listen to where great conversation intriguing insights Mu check out the Jordan arbiter show and I got Jordan here, Jordan besides interviews. You also do these. Ask Me Anything's or just conversations with your team. And you did this one about how to ask for advice. Why did you do an episode about how to ask for advice? Would you talk about their? This episode is really popular. I kept getting questions like Hey will you mentor me or hey? Should I start a? A clothing line or Hayes should I quit my job and go into this business and I realized these weren't really people that wanted to know the answer to that question. They either wanted permission or encouragement, or they wanted me to validate their idea, and that's not a good reason for me to spend time helping someone because they can get that from anyone including themselves, so I talked about how to ask for advice both from the asking side so if you're looking to get help. Help from someone. How'd you ask in a way? That's compelling and gets a response and is helpful to you, and then also for those of us that get asked for advice all the time I created a bunch of tips and tactics for us to hone in drill down what these people might actually need because I was getting a lot of folks saying yeah. I spent three hours with this person. And then they just didn't even follow my advice into the other thing and I. I was like because they didn't really want your help. They just wanted to hear that they were right. And when you learn this, you save hundreds of hours over the course of your life getting an asking for advice, and also of course giving advice that might just go unheeded well. That's up to number three twenty one. It's called how to ask for advice. Go check it out. It's the Jordan harbour. Show Jordan. Thanks for coming on. Thanks for having me on then. And now back to the show was talk about why we have been seen a spike in loneliness, you read. Those I've seen those articles come out in the past five ten years. That more and more people are lonely. Fact I just saw an article the other day that more and more older Americans are dying alone. What's going on here? What are the factors contributing to that? Yeah so. In. Here's what we know about loneliness in terms of the numbers. We know that loneliness is exceedingly common. If you look at a two thousand Eighteen Kaiser Family Foundation, study. If. They came up with a number twenty two percent of adults in America. Who struggled with loneliness. Many would argue that's actually on the lower end of the scale. If you look at other studies have been done. More recently, the studied by the American health insurance CIGNA, a large population based study using the UCLA loneliness go. Did reliable scale found that the numbers were actually much higher and place him actually closer to half the population of not a bit more that struggles with loneliness. Interestingly, they found that unlike most people's assumptions that. Is probably most concentrated among the elderly. It turned out that young people had some of the highest rates of loneliness, and this has also been seen in other data as well. If you look at other countries you see that the numbers are not dissimilar the UK and Australia or struggling with around twenty five percent. Of adults in their in their country who admit to being lonely and many other countries around the world, and as through Europe and Latin. America are finding double digit percentages of loneliness. The question that is being asked is is loneliness, increasing or not, and we always been this lonely. And the truth is we don't a hundred percent. Know the answer to that question in part, because we don't have enough data some of the data that's out there in the studies that are done using different methodologies, which heart always compare apples to apples, but if you just look at this cygnus study that was run and twenty, eighteen and two thousand and twenty, using very similar methodology, they did find a modest increase in loneliness and. John Casio, who is Lila are widely regarded as the the father of modern loneliness research also believe that there was a modest increase in loneliness was taking place in society so I. think that for multiple reasons am in merits paying attention to and it. It's important to prioritize loneliness, because we know it's exceedingly common. We know it's consequential, not only for our health, but also for how we perform in the workplace and in school. And there is a chance given what we know in some limited anywhere seeing that it may, in fact, be increasing as well we do. We have idea the factors that have contributed to it. So I think there's several factors in the modern world that are contributing to loneliness that there, certainly the mobility factor which has given us. The opportunity to travel and move many times in our lifetime for jobs for opportunities, but has also. Uproots from the communities that we have come to know my other so clearly in my own parents who left India in the early nineteen seventies to build a better life for themselves, and for their kids. My sister and I and they moved to England and the United Kingdom and then eventually to the United States while they were blessed to have many opportunities with a missed and struggled with three years and years ago was losing the community that they had in India. A family and friends and so mobility is one factor. The second factor is how we use technology and notice. I didn't technology because technology. The end of the day is a tool and the question is. Can we use it to strengthen connection verses, weekend connection, and when we use technology to? Stay in touch with friends who otherwise may not be able to see when we use it to video conference with relative halfway around the world, or when we use it to post on social media that were coming into town and ask if any friends or free for dinner, and that we meet up and catch up person. These are all powerful ways that technology can help us stay. Stay connected others, but what I worry is that the way in which were predominantly using technology now may be in fact, contributing to greater disconnection, for example in this happens when when we do one of three things with technology when we allow our the amount of time that we're spending in front of screens to edge out in crowd out the in person time we have with. With others that can diminish relationships when we also allow technology to creep into our conversations, such that we are catching up with friends, while we're also checking our social media feed, or looking at our inbox or Googling, a question that came into our head are looking at the score on the game. All thinking that we can multitask until we can fully pay attention to our friend. Friend the truth is that our conversation suffer because the sciences very clear that we don't multitask as human beings, we task switch when I'm looking at my Inbox, I'm actually not able to fully pay attention and process. What someone is saying? But finally the way in which technology and hurt is also by how it impacts our perception of our self, and for many people who use. Social Media in particular. They know that there's this accelerated culture of comparison that technology has enabled. People have been comparing themselves. For for thousands of years, and you know asking my I have a car that's as Nice as my neighbor is my houses as big as my friends, but what happened on social media is that it is accelerated many many fold, and so when you're scrolling even through your instagram feed, or through your other social media feeds. You're constantly comparing somebody's curated pictures, really the best version of their life to your average moments, and you often come up feeling short. Social media also in media in general has accelerated messaging to us. That often tells us that were not enough there. There were not enough or not good looking enough. We're not smart enough. We're not rich enough. When popular enough, and when you hear that time and time again especially when you're young, and you're developing your sense of identity, it can really impact your sense of self worth and make you feel inadequate when you approach other people from a place of being inadequate and not feeling good enough,.

That's according to the Encyclopedia of human relationships. What that means is that loneliness is a feeling and a perception. It involves a wave seen ourselves and the world around us. We can feel lonely. In a wide variety of social settings and circumstances. It doesn't take being alone. Some studies have shown that people who struggle with loneliness may actually perceive the world differently. Does that sound familiar to some of us.

Okay and I'm going to murder his name. I'm sure John Casio Gosh. His research revealed that a lonely person can experience more difficulty recognizing positive events and have more trouble picturing the thoughts of others known as mental ising.

Big You a social behavior in a more negative off-putting fashion while when I read that that is trauma to me. Viewing the world as threatening and beyond our control and for most of us that meant we tried to control what we did have in our hula-hoop and beyond were twenty-foot hula-hoop if you know what I mean that huge expanse between that feeling so different from the person next to in the classroom growing up or outside playing feeling as though we were incredibly weird compared to our neighbors. Here's where I get really excited. If loneliness is a state of our mind state of our thinking can we change it? Can we change the experience of feeling lonely? The answer is yes. This is exactly what self esteem does for us. And how do we achieve self esteem? We do things like pay attention to that. Inner critic voice in our head and separate at separated out from who we are and what we believe and what we think improving our relationship with ourselves for those of you who are in recovery or thinking about getting sober or maybe have pockets of sobriety in your lives. This is. I think what you're after leaving the ideal that a substance can make you feel. Colmer is imperative because it is short lived it takes us away from our relationship with ourselves therefore diminishing our self esteem and it pumps up the volume of our inner critic in my book. Five weeks self-confidence a guide to confronting your inner critic and controlling your relationship with your thoughts available anywhere you buy books or swizzle what I talk about is this relationship with this voice in your head who is giving you really bad advice. The critical inner voice mine negative. Nellie that voice. The inner critical voice is a well integrated pattern of negative thoughts toward ourselves and others. That is at the root of much of our self limiting and self destructive behaviors. This voice makes us feel like we're different. Apart undeserving unworthy when we feel the loneliest. We are in the company. We are Simpatico with this inner critic. We listen and believe when they tell us. No one really cares about you. You are such a burden. Don't tell people that who wants to be around somebody who thinks and says those things don't put yourself out there. You're only going to be rejected. No one ever understands you. So don't try you're going to embarrass yourself and so on and so forth this attack invoice. This spiral of critical thoughts discourages. Us hurts our self confidence and turns our self esteem to Marsh. Instead of doing things that will help us. We create more disk ease in ourselves and were inclined then to be more awkward in social interactions. And then we're going to avoid them altogether or drink through them or pop pill before we go out the more attention. We give this inner critical voice. The louder it gets in order to counter this inner critic we have to do the opposite of what he or she or they are saying when you stop or reduce the amount of time you're listening to this inner critic.

"Say that their goal is to not only stop loneliness but to regulate the way it affects the mind and the body. I'd like to know from you. <hes> what what are your thoughts on this idea. Do you feel like loneliness requires a medical intervention like this well. I think like most people when i very first i heard about it. <hes> there was a little bit of of skepticism <hes> because i think we don't necessarily associate our relationships with something <hes> that that a pill could fix but yet perceptions of loneliness are something that <hes> maybe related to biological signals explain how you mean by yeah so most scientists agree that <hes> that humans are social species much like other animals. It's more adaptive to be in groups and adapted to survival will that similarly humans are social species in fact the late <hes> john casio argued that loneliness is much like hunger hunger or thirst <hes> whereas hunger and thirst our biological motives that motivate us to seek out food or water <hes> that loneliness komo motivates us to reconnect socially in so in that sense loneliness is something that is adaptive and something that we actually actually wouldn't really want to get rid of <hes> because it helps us to reconnect okay the problem however is when when when we experienced loneliness chronically and that's where i think many of the negative health effects can occur and where we need to you really focus. Our intervention efforts okay so i see what you're saying. You're saying that loneliness like hunger can be a signal okay. You're hungry not go eat. If you're lonely you you know to be in a social situation so you can quell that loneliness but in some people they may be chronically lonely and not going out to get that stimuli from other folks in so this pill might offer a solution for them to be able to step outside of themselves and do that is is that what you're saying yeah and so in some cases providing more opportunities for those social connections chins may be the best option but for others despite being around others may still feel profoundly lonely and so if we think of of loneliness almost like a a social barometer in some instances that may be off <hes> may need to be recalibrated and in in those instances perhaps a solution such as the one they are suggesting hosting <hes> may be appropriate but in other circumstances other kinds of approaches may be more appropriate. I guess this goes back to what you were saying about all of us at some point <hes> feel that it's a natural thing that happens but this chronic loneliness. Do you feel like we're seeing more of this in society diety and what might be the reasons for that though it's difficult to know whether it's actually increasing or if we're simply more aware of it but there is some evidence also to suggest that perhaps people are becoming more disconnected now if we think about out loneliness specifically that is perhaps less routinely collected on a national level so it's hard to know whether it's actually increasing or not but we do have evidence that in terms of demographic trends <hes> that we have more people living alone than ever before <hes> fewer people are getting married. Fewer people are having children so there is some evidence to suggest that people blur becoming more socially disconnected and the big question..
"john casio" Discussed on The TED Interview
"With leading scientists and doctors inquest of a better understanding of it. Some of his conclusions have been controversial. We discussed that too. I found the whole conversation absolutely compelling. If your hands right there are numerous things we can all due to improve lives and are what places and our relationships ships and documentaries Johann Hari Welcome. I'm so happy to be really Chris. Thank you so this is going to be such an interesting conversation. The tedtalk gave a few years ago as his about the war on drugs and how we were really not understanding addiction properly and to understand addiction. You just really had to pay attention to the lust connection that a lot of addicts feel you took that idea that notion of us connection and I started thinking about it much more broadly as a way of thinking about depression this lead to more recent book last connections which is becoming big bestseller and it's a very personal book right yourself have suffered from depression. What you you talked about in? That book is incredibly moving. It's profound. It's it's in places controversial. We're GONNA talk about all of this. I just want to say to people listening. This competition isn't just relevant to you as someone who might have at some point been depressed or knowing someone lived with someone who's who's been depressed but really I think anyone who's just interested in personal happiness and as you will hear many of the ideas that you and I think we'll speak about apply to all of us in in different ways in in prospect at least maybe we'll screw it up. I interested in happiness. I want to be a happier person at an depot and I want to make it possible for others to be so as well just even on that level <music>. I'm super interested in this so Johanna I mean I think what I'd love to do is just to hear a bit of your story. Just tell us about your life. I guess one of the reasons I wanted to think about this subject is because there were these two you mysteries that were really hanging over me kind of personal mysteries in some ways that if I'm honest I was really afraid to look into off actually wanting to write this book before I'm a book about addiction chasing the screaming. I was too frightened to do it. The first mystery is I'm forty. Not is old and every year I've been alive. Depression and anxiety have increased here in the United States and across the Western world and I wanted to understand why why is so many of us finding it so much harder to get through the day and you know we speaking just shortly after the Center for Disease Control here in the U._S.. Announced that suicide is at its highest level they've ever recorded in this country and that doesn't include the deaths so that's separate them. Start was one mystery and that was connected as you imply too much more personal mystery for me. which is you know I remember when I was a teenager going to my doctor and saying that I had this feeling like pain was leaking out of me? I couldn't control it. I didn't understand what was going on. <hes> I felt ashamed of it. A my doctor told me a story a lot of people. This is the late nineties loads of people listening to this. We're told this story which I never realized was really over-simplified. It's not that it's got no truth in it but it was really simplified my my doctor said well. We know why people feel like this. Some people just naturally have something wrong with that brain to have a chemical imbalance often. They're lacking chemical called Serotonin which makes people feel good. All you need to do is take these drugs and you're GONNA be fine. I'm a tremendous amount relief at being told this and I started taking a drug co Paxil or so roxy in Britain and I thought much better I got really significant boost and then a few months distilling a pain started to come back so when back to my doctor doctor told you get high enough does clearly need high does again. I more more again. I I felt a really significant boost than this feeling pain came back again so it's really in this cycle taking higher and higher doses until for thirteen years. I was taking the maximum impossible days at the end of which I still felt awful and I was asking myself well. What's going on here because I'm doing everything I'm told to do by the story? This culture is telling it doesn't seem to be helping me and I look around me or give me some relief. I didn't ultimately solvable problem and I could see that I was surrounded by many people in the same situation and many more who antidepressants work giving some relief but not ultimately solving the problem so I wanted to use my my training in the social sciences at Cambridge to really try to understand this so I went on a big journey over forty thousand miles I wanted to sit with the leading experts in the world about what causes depression anxiety and crucially what solves them and just people with really different perspectives actives from an Amish Village Indiana because the amish have low levels depression to a city in Brazil and advertising to see if that would make people feel better to a lab in Baltimore where they were giving people psychedelics to see that would help and I land leads the things but the of wildland and it's very related to what you said about happiness as well. The heart of what I learned is this scientific evidence benign causes of depression and anxiety two of them are indeed biological and we get to talk about them but most of the factors causing depression depression and anxiety and not in our biology most of them are factors in the way relive some of which are all have been had been rising which helps us to understand why there's been this big increase in despair in all all its forms and that was kind of shocking shocking and revelatory to me and then I learned that once you understand these causes which is much more complicated pitcher than what I was told opens up a whole different solutions that should be offered to people alongside the option of chemicals persons so before we get to deep into. Let's get a few definitions. I guess on the table I mean depression in our people do it is widely used <hes> some people just to see him. It just means some unfeeling a bit down out. How would you find fresh? The best definition I got was from Dr Harris Wonderful Person. He made a real breakthrough about depression in the seventies. She said everyone has feelings of hopelessness. Sometimes depression is when that fitting of hopelessness spreads like an oil slick. I the most of your mind or most of your life thought that was a pretty good definition. I mean it becomes the many people completely debilitating you literally can't get out of bed. I mean I've lived with people who are depressed and it small awful to experience than pretty much any other sort of disease familiar with it's because it just it it. It stops you having any pleasure in anything depression at that level I mean I wonder whether that that story that you're told what will come into this in a bit more detail but one of the people I was living with who suffered severely from depression. A doctor told her a similar story and part of the motivation it felt for that was to say to her. You know stop blaming himself. This is not your fault by taking away the blame it took away for her at least for awhile part of the set of self-healing Cycle of Oh. This isn't about the awful things I've done to myself. I'm just unlucky saying is really important and I think the word cookies is really important as well. I used to say an and believed exactly that argument that there was two choices does either the kind of full saw argument if you're depressed you're just week. You need to pull yourself together. All there's the biological overwhelmingly biological argument is just a problem in your brain and of course if those are the two choices we would choose the biological stories. Tell to depress person. The truth is more complex and actually this interesting evidence that touting this heavily biological story while totally well intentioned as you say is not actually the best part our stigma stigma so there's a very broad agreement many of the things we'll talk about those arguments about this a very broad agreement among scientists to this there are three kinds of course of depression and anxiety there are biological causes which have very real. There's things like your genes. Eugene's can make you more sensitive to these problems in the same way. Everyone knows some people find easier to on weight than other people one of those people he finds incredibly easy away those people who find it really hard to away but equally that doesn't doesn't write your destiny right. If you're somebody easy to on way that doesn't mean you're preordained pohmay similarly. There are also real changes in your brain. Applemans become depressed that can make it harder to get out alongside those biological causes there are psychological causes such as expense logical courses but it's literally the beliefs you have can make a defense as to how you feel about yourself <hes> so relation to your psyche so for example if you were abused as a child and you internalize the voice of the abusive to give an extreme example does a psychological causes depression and that's where <hes> cognitive behavioral therapy can make a difference whereby by changing what you believe you can you can shift some of that feeling exactly that's a good bread poignant and then they'll alongside. There's two sets of causes biological psychological. There are also social causes. There are factors in the way we live together for which is very strong evidence can increase depression anxiety so the truth is complicated but not so complicated the ordinary buzzing car does not by any remains. This is called the bio psychosocial model in theory. This is what everyone believes just really important thing he said about your friend so like I say for a long time I thought okay there's this choices either the condemnation of personal weakness which is obviously grace or there's telling people don't worry we'll I was told and did find like your friend found initial relief in Oh. It's just a biological problem but I think there's several problems with that firstly. If you don't understand the broad range of complex causes the I'm making you depressed. You can't find a meaningful solution so let me give you a concrete is on book. Is that Cassandra bit fancy and abstract this here in the United States we are in the lowliest society has ever been. There's a study the Americans. How many close friends do you have you could turn to in a crisis and when they started doing it years ago? The most common answer was five today. The most common answer is none sought the average but it's the most common answer. There's a study more recent since study the asked Americans how many people know you well and fifty percent of Americans said nobody. I spent a lot of time interviewing an incredible Mangku Professor John Casio who is in Chicago. Something just died. He was the leading heating expert in the world on online INNIS. Remember him saying to me. Why are we alive by wise? Everyone listening to the show alive one key reason is our ancestors in the Savannah's of Africa will really good at one thing they often went bigger than the animals they took down. They often went faster than the animals they took them but they were much better. Banding Together into tribes and cooperating this was a superpower is a species just like bees evolve to live in a hive. Humans Volta live in a tribe. We are literally the first humans ever to try to disband are tribes and is making us feel terrible. If you sat for be from its hive it will go crazy right if you think about the circumstances where we evolved if you off from the tribunal depressed anxious for really good a good reason you in terrible danger now that can seem like a very big thing this overwhelming evidence that loneliness has gone up and there's overwhelming evidence that learning is causes depression and anxiety. It's one of the factors that helps us to understand why this crisis is growing. We'll dig in some of the the causes because you've got lots of. I think they're all really interesting worth exploring but the broader point seems like you're making here. Is that look if depression is supposed to be signaling something real about the environment to just take a biological response it is this foolish as to say someone who's his finger enough candle flame. Don't worry we've got pain. Reliever medicine take it and you know the pain will go away and it will but your finger slutty smoke. I think that's a beach away putting it and crucially if you think about that algae what it stops you from doing is finding the solution which is let's in that case. Let's take finger out the candle but let's think about loneliness. One of the heroism about las connections is an amazing doctor in east London and poor part of East London umbrella for a long time called Sam Everington and Sam is general practitioner and he was really uncomfortable because he had loads of patients coming to him terrible depression anxiety and like me. He's not post come Clinton to person sitting still have some role to play. He could see two things firstly. His patients were depressed anxious the perfectly understandable and actually quite obvious reasons like loneliness in most cases and secondly most of the people he gave chemical antidepressants to got some some relief but it didn't solve the problem one day a patient came to see Sam could Lisa Cunningham and I got to know her pretty well later but Lisa had been a nurse and she'd actually been showing our home it just the most was terrible depression and anxiety for seven years and Sam said to Lisa don't worry I'm going to carry on giving you these drugs..

"So non of an unofficial controllable conscious and intentional intentional. So and and just the way they start out by saying, look, if you if you even just agree that those are the only kind of those are the proper categories. There's no reason to think that all four of them. Four of them are grew. In one place in four of them are grouped in the other in just two quadrants. Like, there's sixteen possible quadrants six possible. And so why would you think that they would all be grouped together? That's actually a pretty striking claim that you that would need a lot of evidence in support of it. And it doesn't have that. Right. Right. So so it's like sort of a the dual process has just proceeded by largely by an agreement that this assumption was okay. And I have to say John barge, even though he's writing this. Critique he's he's the person who put sort of automatic behavior on the map, he's the name associated with automatic City College. And but that's okay. If this. Yeah, it's great that that he's actually writing this paper. So yeah. And I remember early on before before this system, they call it type one type two, but the comment averse. Sqi ways system wants to. So forgive me. If I float between the two forget. But you know, early on. I remember this when I was talking about these persuasion models. There's one called the elaboration likelihood model by Richard petty, and John Casio, and it seemed like really complicated, right? Has all these boxes and EROs, and it just all boil down to sometimes you think and sometimes you don't like it's like all of these theories boil down to that. And what it means specifically too hard and not think hard and. Like, it took it took such a hold of the field that I remember when I was in grad school, like an edited volume came out that was called dual process theories in social psychology. And I I remember. Being like like, even at that point. This is like why would you categorize theories by the number of things in the theory? It was literally like, hey, the number two seems to pop up across a whole bunch of different theories. Like, let's people together. And right right about the number two has some magic magic hold people. So this article the mythical number two is as you said trying to argue that it is a bad thing to continue to talk about two systems or two types for the very reason that you said because you can have things that are say. Intentional and also automatic which I think is obvious. Right. So so, you know, you learn to drive when I drive I am doing so intentionally, but it's pretty automatic like me turning the steering wheel or shifting gears or whatever they might right? It's almost I don't know you as an outsider, you tell me is. But it's always seemed to me like so obvious that I don't know why took hold like. No. I mean, I think that's right. Like, it's it seems very faith-based like just like a religion where people never really think to questions some of the totally implausible almost insane claims that from the outside it seems like and from the enzyme it's like, no these are starting premises. We've grown up with these like, this is our world. Right. I think that part of it is a result of conceptual sloppiness on the part of social psychologists because I I don't think that it was that that they were so insensitive to the facts of the matter. It's just that they very easily were comfortable with libary definitions of what oughta Matic means, and what unconscious means, and this isn't cited because it was a paper that nobody read but Paul Bloomberg Ullman, and I once wrote a paper called the varieties of unconscious, social, cognition. Where we were trying to point out that like oftentimes are. You you might be there's different kinds of unconscious and the authors of this pointed out to you can be unconscious of the influence that caused you to have a preference say, so like, why do I like coffee? I don't know for all. I know it's because somebody in my youth drink coffee, and I liked them in the smell like made me kind of like it..

"They also have this sense of of inequality in what's also fasting after that worked on by Sarah, others went on did it with dogs and with chimpanzees. I don't remember the details on it. But the chimpanzees were much more similar in the ways that they dealt with that to humans under a variety of of circumstances. Even more similar than the the monkeys. But the dogs were basically like is long as they get a reward there. Okay. Think of your dogs. They're not so much looking at it. But they'll take it from the other guy, but they're not throwing it back at you. Give them a Scooby snack. It's fine to give them a filet Mignon. It's fine. You give Pat on the head. It's fine. If you don't give them anything they're going to be not so keen. But like they're not going to be jealous. Right. There's not that same kind of sensitivity. But it's more the Chelsea we will harm ourselves to express our outrage. And again, I think this is Saint telling us something about the roller entity because outrageous such a it's such a currency is just it's just what everyone's doing all the time. They to me they everyone's throwing their cucumbers back all the time. And it goes at the happiness research too. Which is that we can be very happy until we see somebody else with more and then magically were unhappy. Yeah. Same found, right? Yeah. And we see this again, this idea of the negative partisanship. And the what is no also affect if partisanship in a relatively recent phenomenon American politics, where we just, you know, people on the left and people in the right hate each other in seem to get more out of the hating of each other than they do out of anything else. It's much more driven by these extreme intense negative emotional phenomena that are that are pretty destructive to the democratic emperor enterprise. All right. So I I want to circle back a couple of things you you speak in very precise terms, and I want to shine a light on each time. You do it to people understand packed in. We talked about the chimpanzees and the monkeys. We are not involved from chimpanzees and monkeys share a common ancestor. So I if luminary wisher common genetic link, but back to the narcissism of small difference in the affect of partisanship, the affect partisanship is is an amplification of small difference. Yes. Yep. Okay. I've been wondering and it's fascinating. I didn't know about Freud's contract with narcissism of small differences. But it has felt like to me that there was a narcissistic basis to all of this because narcissist for very prone to envy, and they're very prone to aggression, and they're very prone to otherness and and believing there, right? Is is there literally narcissism is narcissistic disorder of small differences. He I'm not sure if I would maybe take the analogy quite to the level of clinical precision. I do think that there is this in group out group dynamic, and I think I have this thing black wide. Yes. No all this wheel that way. That's they're prone to that. I think that there is maybe some of that. But again like to save all partisans are narcissist. Certainly is not the data that I have put it this way. You're right. That would be a gross overstatement. But I believe there's been a narcissistic turn if you certainly look at the data than look at the access to diagnoses and psychiatric hospitals. It's all cluster be all of a sudden. So at least on the path under the pathological banner. We've suddenly become more of the narcissistic zone. Now, you there could be many explanations for. That. But it makes me wonder have we all had a kind of a turn that way. Yeah. I mean, certainly I would say there's tremendous evidence that we have become disconnected. Okay. And so this great work by the the the lake research, scientists John Casio Baen his book on loneliness, and I got to meet him a number of years ago. And just he was like one of I've met a lot of amazing minds in. I was blown away by by him. Because he looked at this issue of loneliness from the molecular level all the way to the social network data to to like epidemiology. He's one of his famous kind of claims was that loneliness was as toxic for us is smoking in German, all it's it's a really important claim..

Getting is like a kind of parody of those things right began to think is speaking to her in the the relationship between social media and social life is a bit like the relationship between porn and sex. Right. I'm not anti porn, but if you're entire sex life consisted, looking at porn, you going to be going around pissed off at airtight, the whole time because you didn't evolve domestic over screen, you have sex and the same way this place to screen based interaction, of course, some we'd let, but that's not what we have if you and I were having this conversation of Skype. I wouldn't feel you were hearing me, and you wouldn't feel you hearing all the way around in the way that we feel we're hearing and seeing each other now, right? And that'd be to think about what you think about when did the internet. Arrive, right. You can get just simplistic dollar. We you say this is just the internet's full internet's horror shy. Actually think about it. And you look at the evidence on this the internet rice for most of us in the late nineteen the thousands. I sent my steam out in the two thousand and a lot of the causes depression, anxiety about connections had actually already been supercharged by that point. So we've talked about loneliness meaningless work. But junk valley's what happens is the internet arrives. And it looks a lot like the things we've lost right? You've lost friends. His a whole range of face. But friends lost status does many status updates as he won't right? But again, he's it's like a parody of the thing we've lost and the x online professor John Casio said to me give me good kind of rule of thumb which is. If you're tending to the internet as a way station to meet people offline great, if it's the last nation on the line, generally something's gone wrong. Yeah. It's. It's it's a tricky thing because this is the lexicon. You know, this is how more and more people are communicating and the solution isn't to completely put the phone away and never use it and become a Luddite. But these devices are specifically designed to create that addictive response. I mean, I think this is a perfect example of where the work that you've done in addiction depression dovetail directly into each other because you have a highly addictive device in the hands of an undeveloped young mind with apps on it that are specifically created to create that, you know, serotonin response. That makes it almost impossible for that kid put that phone away. So short of completely putting it away. How do we as a parent? Like, this is something I think about all the time. Like, how do we create structures around it to foster a healthy relationship with the best of what it can do which is like they communicate with their friends and they see their friends at school. So there is that offline component to it. But it very easily if left unchecked can devolve, and I think it doesn't has with douse of not millions of teenagers into a compulsive behavior pattern that is truly an addiction that. Leads these young people to very very dark place, and it's not necessarily just young people. I think that's true. And I go to look at it like going to poke that diction because in context, right? I think it's worth expense. People the way we all raising children is deeply wit and has never been tried by any group groupie beings. But we have no idea the long-term just without phones. If you think about the nuclear family, right where the child remains indoors with two to adults the lucky one the no. That's no more chartering. Evan tried by human beings. Right. Human beings have always been raised by villagers by groups by tribes, right?

"Live this life of luxury of convenience, and we have lost sight of what it is that that truly makes us human in the most beautiful way, which is our relationship with each other with our families the networks that we create the connectivity. The cooperation that. Allowed this species that you know, if you ask you all know Harari should've never survived yet. We were able to do so simply because of this genetic predisposition that we have to be connected with each other. And that's what we've lost. And I think we're now seeing on a mass epidemic scale the results of what happens when the human being is removed from that basic requirement that we have and or feel contented fulfilled purposeful engaged with life. And and the sense that that the lives that were pursuing have. Meaning it is a crisis of consciousness, it's a spiritual crisis as much as anything else, and it really boils down to the way that we we've structured the society in which we live. There's a low things wages said totally rise. So. I learned a lot about this from Amanda, professor, John Casio Sadler just died. But he was the leading expert on line in the world. It was the university of Chicago. He's playing a few things to me that really important the touch of what you said. So he told about him saints me. Why are we alive? Why do we exist? One key reason is ancestors on the savannahs of Africa were really good at one thing. They usually were not faster than the animals. They track down. They usually want bigger than the animals. They tried down. What they were was much better banding together into groups in cooperating so just like bees evolve to Nita hive humans Volta native tribe in humans who had wanted off on their own would have died out. Right. They species inclined to do that. Would would not be continued to exist. And actually, if you think about second stances, if he was separated from the tribe in the circumstances, where we you would be depressed anxious for really good reason. You will probably about to die those instincts. We have right. If you separate be from its hif-. It will go crazy look at it will lose his mind right panico free count. It'd be founded distressed and eventually it would just give up in a similar way. We all the first humans to ever tried to disband tribes to chart live alone. And this is a disaster for a real disaster. I'm one of the things I wanted to think about is. Given the of whelming of that is a cause of depression. What is the anti-depressant for that? Right. And I learned one of the heroism connections is this amazing mangled delta. Sam Everington his doctrine east. London Papa vs London rounded for a long time. And Sam was really uncomfortable. Because like me he thinks some Rover chemical depressants, but he was just very conscious of things festively most of the people. He was giving chemical into persons to becoming depressed again, it was giving relief. And Secondly, they would depress the perfectly good reason. So one of the nine calls we're talking about Harry's loss connection. Laziness so one day he decided to pioneer different apart. A woman came to see him got some quite well could Lisa Cunningham.

"Well, some of those things are clearly causally related. So if you are depressed, and you're being prescribed antidepressants or your addicted to opioids and suffering the consequences of that. That's a cluster of problems and subsequent dysfunction clinical depression gets all kinds of other dysfunction in your career and your relationships. So it is that you do have a chicken and the egg phenomenon that you have to tease apart there. That's a really important point. I think it helps if we see in. Context clustering with something else. And this is something that unites a lot of the causes depression anxiety that right by in Las connection. So. Everyone listening to poke knows they have natural physical needs right, obviously, you need food. You need water. You need shelter you need cleaner.

My my ancestors in many ways is Irish peasants and respondents you significantly west lives in all sorts of ways. But we've been getting less and less good. And being these deep underlying psychological needs. I think there's good evidence for that. And while it certainly not the only thing that's going on. I think it's the thing that is driving these crises that Cassatt a bit weird in the give a specific example. This is the loneliest society has been as a study that asks Merrick. Cnn's how many close friends do you have you could turn to in a crisis? When they started doing it years ago. The most common answer was five today, the most common and all the average. But the most common answer is none right? There are more people have nobody to turn to than any other option is part of an enormous array of social science that shows it's been an explosion in loneliness 'isolation, an spent a lot of time talking about this with a an amazing man professor John Casio university, Chicago who's the leading. He was the Saudi just died. He was the leading expert in the world on on loneliness. And he I'm of his saints. Meet you know, why are we alive? Why do we exist implies because Iran sisters on the savannahs of Africa were really good at one thing? They win in a lot cases bigger than the animals. They took down. They went in cases faster than the animals. They down they were much better banding together into tribes on cooperating just like bees, volt Anita hive humans Volta Nita tribe. And if you think about those circumstances where we evolved if he was. Separated from the tribe anxious depressed per really good reason. Right. You probably about to die. You were in terrible danger. Those are the physical responses we still have to feeling isolated get the defers humans ever to try to disband our tribes and tell ourselves that we can do it all alone in that. It's a key factor. Why was distressed one issues as there? No, bright lines between biology and psychology and social phenomenon and culture at every point. It is coherent to think about a an individual as being entirely, the inheritor of whatever neurophysiological states are being kindled on his brain. As a result of all of the influences and the underline genetic propensity, he's got to respond to those influences. So you what you have is your brain.
