"Is just a hurricane in the pacific was in the area and just dumping loads of water's kinda messed everything up because there's way too much time sitting in a biker bar listening to karaoke like i don't give a shit about karaoke cool. They made a career out of playing cover songs. That's great for them. Hopefully they enjoy it. But i don't care. Yeah so then that i don't wanna step in kind of just wanna know now like what you're ranking and i don't have mine ready but i know yours like chambered it's slow the bottom like the bottom like not below the bronx I think so. Yeah i mean forty. I forty nine wall except socks. I am sorry it does not accurately depict the philippines. I feel like at all. And i've never been to the philippines. She has katy has. But i've never been there but i think there's just it's almost like they shouldn't just shown the episode they should scrapped it. It's bad all he talk about christmas and kariuki for like forty five minutes but just the bronx was terrible. But the bronx at least has like one or two scenes in there that you're like okay. You know when they go to the eat. The fried fish fish place him in desus like that's a decent seen. You know what i mean like.

So if i'm really big into christmas go there some time in the fall as about it that and everybody has different recipe for adobo kind of cell. I mean you make your own determination.

"To advance in global health. She stated in receiving her award. I am excited beyond imagination. As i never dreamt or saw anything like this coming an acknowledgement of something humble that i started only a year ago out of the frustrations that i felt for the many mothers who lost their lives and babies because they couldn't access a health facility and as for the future. She says she hopes to see the organization integrated in the healthcare system but for now she is happy without is going and to show the women that they are not alone and that quote they need to know they can safely deliver in clinics despite the pandemic and that they have help at hand right and we've seen the story time and time again where covet and a pandemic and quarantine has caused such mass havoc. There was a lot of regression essentially in so many of the things that have been doing well such as maternal morbidity rates They were going down for low while and kenya and now because of the pandemic and because of curfews it caused a another rise in those senseless deaths in we've seen access has been limited because of that as well and it continues to be an issue everywhere not just out in africa and or i think we've talked about india. We talked about pakistan before how has been affecting them for a while now In the us we see time and time again. We've talked about reservations being impacted on. Us soil and how they're not getting the care that they deserve and that they need as well and it seems to be an overall issue. Continue to talk about as well as the fact that it is causing a setback when it comes to women's rights in general for the entire world In is is really sad that we have to come back here and have this conversation but obviously women like dr karaoke or making a difference and solving these problems one step at a time so is phenomenal to be able to talk about what she and people are doing. Yeah absolutely Just the other day. I was thinking about our pre coded episodes where we were talking about. Like how the future's going to look for women. And then covert happens and now are like setting women so far back and it's really disheartening. To see oh so. These are the issues where we're just willing to let so much regress but it's really. It is really heartening on the other end to see women standing up and fighting to make these issues heard in to to continue to push at not let something like a pandemic just eradicate or completely.

And samantha and okra stefo never told you production of iheartradio. Any do want to ask you before we start our women around the world. Would you consider yourself a fixer or a problem solver. yes Caveat to that. I will also say that. I sometimes describe myself as someone who creates more problems by trying to solve problems. I'm very very very eager to solve problems. And i hate seeing people. Struggling are in pain and because of that like sometimes i think when people tell me something they really want is to be heard but what i hear is i have to fix this for you and sometimes that's not the case like right. I just need to tell you this thing. And it's hard for me because i'm like. My mind is racing trying to think of going to help us bears. How can i fix is. Do i know anything that being said. I am someone who aggressively tackles issues. If i am test with it. I'm not test with it. Perhaps not but i will try to. I like marking things off my list. As you know. I like being someone who can just be like okay. I figured this out. We don't have to worry about it anymore. I don't have to worry about it anymore. Right how about you. Yeah so it's according to the role like someone else's taking up that role that i won't worry about it but if there's something that needs to be done it's not going to be done or it's not done then i'll handle it and i'm absolutely that same way in like projects bigger projects them like okay. You got this. you got this in. If someone doesn't pay charge to get it organiz. I'll do it. Same way would like if i have something at my phone or something that i have around. I will try to see if i could fix it. I like that is my mentality. If we're having issues so one of the things in my old job was trying to have innovative ideas to get to solve big impact issue. So let's say we had a really huge problem with families being able to transport kids to therapy so one of the things that i had to do was look around to see what we do as in home therapy how we can provide funding what rows we can do in order to get all that that was something that was a part of my job so for me. Those level of problems. Yes at the same time like when it comes to like friendship stuff typically. If someone is going through issues i will be there. Listen but i also have that problem-solver as well with being a social worker and be like. Let me tell you what this might be. Which is not always welcome and rightfully so but it came to the community stuff. I tried as best as i could in trying to get some effective things and honestly the reason i wanted to bring this up. Everyone talk a little bit. More is because this has kind of been a theme for our specific women around the world is today and the woman. We're talking about. Who is a doctor out of kenya. Who not only makes an amazing amount of impact in healthcare in her community but the overall health and lives of mothers and expectant mothers around our community also and who we are speaking about specifically is dr jemima kariuki and yeah. She has a really fascinating story. Yes and the reason. We are talking about problem. Always is because dr kariuki. Her overall determination as a healer and as a woman in the community has helped solve so many issues for women that could be detrimental on so many levels. Dr k yuki is a doctor of gynecology and obstetrics at the kenyatta national hospital at the university of nairobi and she specializes in preventative medicine but focuses on the issues dealing with maternal and child health right and not only that after the post electoral violence in two thousand seven in kenya. Where over a thousand people were killed and over five hundred thousand people were displaced after this controversial presidential election. Dr kariuki started the peace club and then also started the public health club which among other things helps run cervical cancer prevention. Drive as she has so many things within that clinic to try to bring awareness to this type of cancer but she has also continued her work in creating solutions to problems that continue to endanger the women of our community especially as the pandemic has affected the country after reading an article about a woman who died because he was not able to get care due to the cove in nineteen restrictions and curfew best when dr karaoke decided that something needed to happen and she needed to fix the situation and it didn't take long for her to start the wheels of life program which provides free ambulance services for mothers in labor after dark after seeing incidents like the woman who died after not being able to go out after curfew. And if a man beaten to death by police for violating curfew. If you're trying to drive a woman in labor to the hospital she pushed a find a safe way for women to get the care they need to safely give birth right and a service includes a call center that offers services ranging from being able to talk with doctors to talk about the pregnancy or a free ambulance service to take them to a clinic. Because that's not available. Ambulances are not available for many of those who are in need within the first year they received over one hundred thousand calls seeking help and guidance while they were pregnant and of course this has brought much recognition for her hard work and advocacy including being named bbc's one hundred women in twenty twenty and just recently given the twenty twenty one global health award for her contribution.

Ivanovskaya has been my guiding for how to keep chill. She's an arts and culture editor at Kikuchi and asked her to share some tips. Welcome NASTYA thinks Alluvia. Okay so let's get into your tips. What do you think are the most important things that people can do to basically just keep chill during the stressful time? Well a good one to start with is really limit. Your information taken your exposure to the news reader reliable fact based reporting to keep yourself informed like but don't feel like you have to read everything that's out there and especially if it's stressing you out and giving wings -iety feel free to take a walk. Read a book off your phone. Your computer turn off notifications and just take a break. I saw advice somewhere to try to limit what you were doing after eight PM and at least last night I slept great. I didn't wake up with anxiety dreams or anything like that so so that was a piece of advice that worked for me. That's a super good tip to all right. So what else do you have for us? So there's only so much time you can spend sitting down. Just make sure to take walks outside. Run if you can also hiking is still allowed as long as you stay at least six feet away from other people and then also there's such a wealth of Free Yoga and fitness classes on Youtube to take advantage Speaking of Yoga these are really high anxiety times for people. And there's a free meditation really like to use called inside timer. I love free resources now. Aside from sort of you know taking time to meditate. What if I'm just missing people in my life so just for socializing definitely? Don't forget to schedule. A facetime call. Zoom calls with your friends. Some of my friends have been getting really creative on it. Like I have a few friends that had Kariuki on zoom. I WANNA do have parties with my friends. You can also do a book club where everyone reads the same book or even watch the same movie and talks about it on facetime but also don't forget to check on people that might be isolated whether they're sick or elderly were they have an immune disorder or another underlying condition. That makes it especially risky for them to go outside right now. Call those people. Make sure that they know that you're thinking about them. Maybe even offer to bring them supplies a few cannon. If that's safe and take people up on their offers to help to don't feel like you have to do it all on your own. Yeah there are some really amazing stories out there of neighbors helping neighbors and I WANNA pause real quick to share a story from Berkeley of two people who have found that even in catastrophe you can grow closer together. I'm in my eightieth year. I'm trying to ease into it. Gradually accept nothing is easy right now. Believe me there was a general location that was provided in the clearing house spreadsheet but it did not have an address site had to do a little bit of smoothing. I'm Laura X from The women's History Library and the national clearinghouse marital and date rape. Hi I'm eager trickled in Berkeley and I'm also one of those folks with the compromised. Immune System I was trying to figure out how I could be a net positive for my community and I went through the list of neighbors. Cool ask for various kinds of support and just in case. I ended up sending each of them an email. I began to remember standing there in the eighth grade. Waiting to be chosen at a dance conduct the horror of that. Oh God all those terrible school girl memories we're coming back and then any Gore stepped up turned out that she is quite a legend and a telltale sign was that she had her own wikipedia page. She has been an icon of the feminist movement. I have been very moved and so many people just moved to tears by people's offered all we ended up getting for about two weeks or of supplies and leave. Were able to still exercise the six feet of prescribed social distancing at the door. We ended up having a really great conversation on the porch of her house. I actually have been to where he was born in Ukraine and so it was all kind of fun for me. That just goes to show sometimes small acts of kindness. You might end up meeting lifelong fans people. I thought to myself. Wow a lot of people in Burghley. Ten meet this way. Cigarette thing made me feel better. It gave me a sense of larger purpose. Really really special. And you know you don't really quite know how to articulate the Malays until something different happened. There are hundreds if not thousands of neighbors just like the Internet has been really helpful for these kinds of efforts but eager says they're trying to figure out ways that they can let neighbors who aren't online know that they have support nearby. Okay Nasty. I know you've got one more tip for us. Yes just make sure that you're doing stuff to keep yourself stimulated an occupier brain. I personally love to listen to podcasts. Snap judgment is one of my favorites. It's a storytelling show. That does not have to today's news so it's a good way to get your mind off things also to a great chance to learn a new skill or training new craft crossword puzzles or games. And then there's a free APP Be where with your library card. You can borrow you. Books audiobooks and also a lot of artists are getting on instagram. Live till five stream. There are concerts or sometimes classes like the indie rock artist. Talent the get down. Stay down as having a instagram. Live sessions for kids this week. It seems like every hour. I'm seeing something new and cool that people are doing to create online community and offer something positive for others.
Overconfidence: The Icarus Paradox
"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb. And I'm Joe McCormick and we're back with part two of our discussion of overconfidence. That's right If you did not listen to the previous episode do go back and listen to that episode. Because we're GONNA lay the groundwork we're going to discuss overconfidence. Hubris and mythology in human histories. And then get into the psychology of it and what various psychological studies have revealed and continue to reveal about the nature of overconfidence. And how we can. Divide this sort of amorphous concept of overconfidence out into categories that can be more easily studied and understood. That's right now in the last episode one of the main things we talked about was this huge new review of the scientific literature on something known as the better than average effect. Which is the tendency for people to rate themselves as better than average with respect to their peers on all kinds of stuff One classic example is that something like ninety. Three percent of people think they are a better than average driver. And so if you're if you're listening to this as you drive is back on the road and make sure you use the turn signals principle. Stay save lives turn signals. Let other drivers and the districts. No what you intend to do. Even if you think you're a great driver drive like your less good than you are and it will make you a better driver drive like you can't see all the other cars and around you because sometimes you cannot drive like you're driving a murder weapon because potentially you are. It's quite true. Are Now one of the things we talked about it in the last episode was A paper from two thousand seventeen by dawn Amorin Derek. Shots called the three faces of overconfidence which Which actually broke. Overconfidence down into three distinct categories of of bias or misperception and And we talked about those a little bit last time. We're going to be exploring more of what that paper had to say. And it's critiques of overconfidence. Research specifically with reference. To these three types of overconfidence and has a brief refresher. The three types are overestimation over placement and over precision overestimation is thinking that you're better than you are and this would be with reference to some kind of You know objective measure out in the world so if you think you are taller than you are if you think that you can jump higher than you can if you think that you would get a better score on a test than you actually could. That's overestimation the next one over placement is similar but instead it's comparing yourself with other people so the better than average effect would be an example of over placement. It's you know thinking you are better than average compared to your peers at some task or it would be thinking that you know that you work harder than other people or thinking that you are smarter than other people of course with the. If it's overconfidence. Meaning that those are not actually accurate assessments and then finally the other one would be over precision which is being too sure that you know the truth Again this this might be called EPIs- stomach over-confidence it's just being too certain that your beliefs are correct now to get into more and chances paper from two thousand seventeen one of the questions that they address. What actually drives some of these different Effects as as they are manifested so they they start with overestimation what causes us to say think we would get a better score on a test to than we do or to think we have more money in the bank than we do a common answer that people give to this is the idea of wishful thinking. It would feel good if this were true. Therefore I believe it right the authors don't think that this Explanation is very plausible and they offer several problems with it and we can interrogate these. Maybe disagree with them as we go on but first of all they say you know self delusion is demonstrably maladaptive for example a tendency toward wishful thinking about the safety of kissing sharks. So with tongue is is not a trait that the environment will tend to select for people overconfident about their academic abilities. We'll tend not to study and actually do worse people who believe themselves invulnerable. We'll take risks that sometimes get them killed. This might seem obvious but there is actually plenty of research on this. I mean people who are over confident about their abilities. Do face a lot of downsides when those abilities are put to the test right. Yeah I mean one example from literature that comes to mind is that of Macbeth who believes himself protected by prophecy? And of course snuffs it exactly but then again I think okay so it is true that these people will face a Lotta downside but then again people do engage in self destructive self deluded behavior all the time. This is a common feature of human life. Yeah I mean for instance. We were just recently talking about Sepo Affect Our our movie episode. We're talking about the fly and a about the possibility that the placebo effect is is basically due to You know this innate tendency toward self delusion that may very. Well be adaptive in at least in this scenario where yeah we we benefit from being able to believe something is going to work and And experiencing at least a small physical benefit from it like a small cured of benefit from it. And then you know I also can't help but think that you know self-delusion entails far more than just over-confidence it also entails. All manner of paranoia and there is a strong case for the adaptive nature of say making type one error in cognition a false positive the belief that the Russell in the tall grass is that of a tiger. When it's not because of you make the type to air. You're more likely to be eaten by the Tiger. Right right yeah. Having accurate information about the world is actually very useful and having inaccurate information can kill you. Yeah but but I'm not so much you know trying to disagree with the maladaptive Self-delusion argument That we mentioned earlier but but rather you know to point out. The human experiences is rife with self delusion. So might a dash of overconfidence. Even in the form of overestimation serve do balance out this alchemy of of our perception of reality for example. Have a singer in granted cariocas very low stakes right but it could involve social embarrassment which you could fear would lead to ostracism. And that's actually one of the most powerful negative motivators human behavior right but again curiosity is also one of these things. Where like sometimes? It's cool to do it badly. So this is a perfect example. But so you have a carrier. Karaoke singer then imbibe in a little liquid courage before taking the microphone as most Kariuki participants are are want to do but yeah they they get a little liquid courage because they know they don't have the greatest voice in the world and then they feel a little awkward getting up there but but they they know that a little bit of booze induced. Overconfidence might help matters. I think you're exactly right there and this is funny to start here because I think while the authors make tons of good points this is one of the ones they make that I might disagree with the most. I think that there are antagonist adaptations in human behavior. One pressure might favor having an accurate picture of the world. Assessing things in a clear and accurate way while across pressure favor self-deception especially self-deception in the form of overconfidence. For example. You might be more likely to survive if you have accurate assessments of your own abilities but you might be more likely to take big risks with potentially big rewards if you overestimate your abilities Or Self Delusional. Overconfidence could be adaptive. Because it helps us persuade or even deceive other people about are worth. Yeah old ultimately you have to believe in yourself you know other people are not going to believe in you for you right. I mean we. We talked in the last episode about how. It's probably not a coincidence that you really often notice overconfidence in people who occupy high status leadership roles. Right how did they get there? I mean it's not hard to imagine. The overconfidence helped them get to that point. Yeah it's Something it's a fine sometimes terrifying exercise to like if you if you engage with people like this and then when you realize Oh. They're just really overconfident. They don't they're they're not to say they're not skilled but when you realize here is they're not sometimes they're not but sometimes you realize. Oh there. There is this gap between ability. And and and what? They're they're saying they're going to deliver on what they are. Estimating the future will consist of. Yeah I mean I. It is kind of shocking. How often in life? You will suddenly come to a realization that you know the boss. Or the leader whatever's main skill is B. S. ing. Yeah like that they can just go out there and wing it in a way that you would be too timid in reserve to do right now this idea of the accurate assessments playing into our. You know our own abilities i. I couldn't help but think of the film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid scenario because really as it relates to two specific points in the film one is the the whole. Would you make that jump if you didn't have to scenario where they're being tracked? They're being hunted and they've come to this cliff overlooking this river and they realized that if they jump if they jump off this cliff may land in that river and they don't die they'll get away because the stakes are such that those pursuing them will not follow them. They will not make that jump if they don't need to. So so there's there's that and then at the very end there's kind of a going out the old fashioned way. Guns a blazing scenario where corner. They're going to slowly be killed and they decided to just go for it to just bust out shooting and just
