we're on the deck of the USS Intrepid conducting an experiment and the rules of the game couldn't be simpler you've got to decide which one of these three straight lines is the same length as this first card take a look for yourself think you've got it before we reveal the answer we'll show you where these people stand think it's a hey hey it's a yeah I'm gonna go with a it looks like everyone is going with a definitely a then they know something you don't what
00:29
do you think take one last look are you going with these people who all picked a or did you choose to go with B or C time's up got your pick would say you're gonna go with the group yeah all right great is that when you picked or did you go with another answer it turns out the answer to this round is C and while you likely chose C first and stuck with your answer we also know that

don't beat yourself up if you were tempted to go along with a crowd make your choice I'm had to go with a okay yeah thank you what happened I have a confession okay I actually thought it was C so start to question your own judgement I did I don't want to be the dumb kid I want to stand out you know I was like hey have you ever ignored the truth to fit in with a group just think what if those weren't lines but evidence in a murder case would you be able to see past the

group consensus and just go with your gut studies show that when someone holds a different opinion than the rest of the group the anterior cingulate cortex also notice the oops area of the brain produces an error signal we try to fix that by modifying our opinion to be in line with the group even if it's a viewpoint we're uncomfortable with or know what's wrong and that's because there's some major evolutionary advantages for those who follow along with the group namely survival do you want to stay safe stay with the herd
