How quick are you to rethink your opinions when presented with new information? Can changing your mind make you a happier person? In this episode, Arthur is joined by Wharton organizational psychologist and bestselling author of Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know to discuss the perks of being wrong. They also explore how thinking like a scientist and having the humility to reevaluate our opinions, while staying true to our values, can help us to not only improve ourselves, but our world, as well.

We’d love to hear from you! Write to us at or with your happiness questions.

    Changing one’s mind and heart is a common experience of all Orthodox Catholics. It is called frequent confession requiring a serious examination of conscience.  Holding on to the essentials and discarding the extraneous and unimportant.   The Left will never marshal any insight that will efface their long history of wickedness and error.
