A new book claims that humans are more gullible than ever before, and struggle to tell the difference between what is real and what is not.
According to Dr Stephen Simpson, speaking during the launch of his book The Psychotic Revolution, learning how to talk has diminished our ability to read body language as well as ability to identify our “gut” instincts.
Our reliance on language has, as a result, made us more gullible. That, in turn, makes us more susceptible to manipulations (Trump anyone…?).
Could explain why fake news is so prevalent and has become such a common part of our lives…
How about you – do you think we humans are more gullible than ever before?
