We need to trust each other in order to cooperate, communicate, interact with, and live with each other. Lucky for us, most people tell the truth most of the time. Were you certain that you saw what you thought you saw? Gladwell also uses Neville Chamberlain as an example. He brings his forensic empathy to the case of Brock Turnerthe Stanford college student who was caught sexually assaulting an unconscious woman on the ground outside a dorm building. She tips two braziers onto the straw floor, quickly setting the entire temple on fire and killing the khals, who have been barred inside by the younger Dosh Khaleen.

What else is it difficult not to be? They believed the denials. But people are generally bad at identifying when someone is lying. We need to trust each other in order to cooperate, communicate, interact with, and live with each other. Amanda was thrown in jail and charged with murder because she acted guilty, not because she was. I must be an idiot.

Guilty people sometimes behave like they are innocent. So what can we do to prevent mistakes, tragedies, and catastrophes like this from happening? Gladwell describes some experiments where social scientists traveled to Mozambique and the Trobriand Islands to show isolated tribes of people pictures of human facial expressions to see if their interpretations of these faces matched up with the way the rest of the world perceives human facial expressions. No Malcolm, we have a videotape of hi, robbing the store and roughing up the terrified owner. I'm super excited for our discussion and have a set of book club questions for Nine Perfect Strangers ready to go.

Talking To Strangers

Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don't want to change, but because you have Strangers book wrong system for change. Then what does that person in authority do? Three days later, while still being held, she killed herself. Which spa guest do you relate to the most?

Sadly, the parents, university officials, and administrators took their word for it. Even the people in charge of determining who is innocent and who is guilty in our society are just a bad as anyone else at detecting a liar.

She accuses the khals of being unsuited to leading the Dothraki due to their lack of ambition, and says she will lead them. Jones on Never Split the Difference Negotiating as if Your Life Depended on It By: Chris Voss Length: 8 hrs and 7 mins Unabridged 5 out of 5 stars 39, Performance 5 out of Strangers book stars 34, Story 5 out of 5 stars 34, After a stint policing the rough streets of Kansas City, Missouri, Chris Voss joined the FBI, where his career as a hostage negotiator brought him face-to-face with a range of criminals, including bank robbers and terrorists.

Tommen is reluctant to provoke him, but Cersei says he is dangerous because he has no respect for the Crown. If it was suspicion that formed the basis of all interaction between strangers, we would never have learned to cooperate on such a vast and complex scale.

It is also littered with historical and pop-cultural anecdotes. It turns out that the facial expressions that the majority of the world uses to represent anger, happinessanxietyfearor surprise are not universal. If the US banned handguns, it could save an estimated 10, lives per year or many more.

What kind of poet wants to be confused with Mad Men? The data, taken uncritically, served to buttress anecdotes that were intended to dramatize some general truth about the human animal.

In Talking to Strangers, however, the thesis never emerges. In order for society to function and to thrive, we have always needed to assume that strangers are telling us the truth. But he was inadvertently protected by parents because, by and large, we assume people — especially those in positions of power — are acting in accordance with our expectations.

Chamberlain even convinced him to sign a document stating that he would not invade Czechoslovakia, a provocation that could instigate the war. Gladwell points out that the officer was guilty of many of the cardinal miscommunication mistakes discussed through this book.

All of those deaths involved miscommunication between strangers. Surprise, joy, anger, love, fear, hostility, and distress do not actually look the way that we think they do.

I enjoyed Tipping Point and Blink.Sep 09,  · When it comes to strangers, we don't have that kind of inside knowledge and that opens the door to all manner of misinterpretation.

That's a big theme in the book, this idea of how much.
