Good episode? Give it some love!
Welcome to HumanLab: The Science Between Us, with Amy Alkon interviewing the luminaries of behavioral science.

My guest is social psychologist Dr. Carol Tavris, on how to admit mistakes instead of continuing to make them. She talks about common ways we make errors in reasoning and judgment that mess up our lives, and how to avoid them.

Her terrific book, co-authored with Dr. Elliot Aronson, is one of my favorites: Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions, and Hurtful Acts.

Join me and my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. Pacific Time, 10-11 p.m. Eastern Time, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.

Support my show by ordering my science-based and funny book on how we can behave less counterproductively, "Good Manners For Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck."
