Why Is It So Hard to Do the Right Thing?fleeting
Based on what I have listened/read so far, I have decided to believe that:
- people try to do the right thing,
- but “doing the right thing” is a difficult question,
- hence, people unconsciously fallback in a substituted question: “how do I feel about what I am doing”
- this feeling is intuitively linked to our present self, even if it is negative for our future self,
- then, our brain finds suitable reasons to argument in favor of this feeling (rationalisation),
- we end doing the thing, with the alief that it is the right thing to do.
Notes linking here
- avoir l’intuition de faire les choses bien vs être convaincu de faire les choses bien
- how to make us make right choices?
- is it ok to let the CI fail and not do anything about it?
