You and every other human being engages in a lot of self-deception. We tell ourselves stories about how wonderful we are or how great our kids are, or how skilled we are at something. While it may seem silly, it turns out that self-deception serves an important purpose in our ability to navigate through life according to Shankar Vadantam author of the book Useful Delusions: The Power and Paradox of the Self-Deceiving Brain (https://amzn.to/3gfTNgI). Shankar joins me to explain this fascinating quirk of human behavior and how to make the most of our own self-deception.
