Arguably our brains greatest sense is the ability to understand the minds of others - our real sixth sense. In Mindwise, renowned psychologist Nicholas Epley takes us on a tour of our incredible capacity for mind reading. This is the kind of mind reading we do every day of our lives, dozens of times a day, when we infer what others are thinking, feeling, wanting, or intending. The kind that enables you to build and maintain the intimate relationships that make life worth living, to maintain a desired reputation in the eyes of others, to work effectively in a team, and to outwit and outlast your competition. The kind that forms the foundation of all social interaction. Yet, as great as this sense may be, Epley reveals that it is still prone to critical errors. We often misread social or work situations, misjudge others characters, or guess the wrong motives for their actions. Sometimes, these slip-ups are deadly serious, leading to violence and conflict. Crucially, Epley shows how these errors are not random, but systematic and avoidable. Relying solely on our sixth sense can be a mistake.
