The smart move: we learn more by trusting than by not trusting

6 mins | Nov 11, 2019

A beginner's mindset: by not trusting, are we missing out on valuable learning benefits? Hugo Mercier explains in Aeon magazine why the costs of mistaken trust are disguising the benefits. "When you trust someone, you end up figuring out whether your trust was justified or not. By contrast, when you don’t trust someone, more often than not you never find out whether you should have trusted them."
