The Mary Poppins principle: The behavioural economics of should and sugar

The Mary Poppins principle: The behavioural economics of should and sugar | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

The character Mary Poppins famously sang "A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down" (and I apologise that you'll now have that song in your head all day).

And now there’s some behavioural research which suggests that Mary might not only have convinced the kids to swallow their medicine, but been on the money when it comes to getting people to do tough stuff.

Living Comfortably with Hypocrisy and Negative Evidence | SciTech Connect

Living Comfortably with Hypocrisy and Negative Evidence | SciTech Connect | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

The Google Define:Hypocrisy command returns the following definition: “the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform; pretense”. Hypocrisy can be conscious or unconscious. People can be aware that their beliefs are contradicted by their daily behavior or not. In this latter case, hypocrisy is often obvious to observers.

Have you ever wondered how people can live comfortably with hypocrisy? For example, have you ever wondered how good people who believe strongly in the American creed and constitution that holds that all men are created equal with inalienable rights can engage in extreme racism, as was once openly practiced by well-respected southern white gentlemen and is practiced to a lesser extent by many people today? Or, have you ever wondered how good German citizens could support Hitler’s persecution of the Jews?
