How our fast-forward minds make something out of nothing
We all know expectations matter—in school, in sports, in the stock market. From a healing placebo to a run on the bank, hints of their self-fulfilling potential have been observed for years. But we’ve never fully understood why.
Journalist Chris Berdik offers a captivating look at the frontiers of expectations research, revealing how our assumptions bend reality.
