Reasonable Relationships: How Does Our Skepticism Influence our Romantic or Non-Romantic Relationships?

When we form relationships, it’s easy to think that just trusting our feelings is the way to go. This panel discusses how and why to be skeptical about relationships, and goes through some of the common logical fallacies that people make regarding their relationships. We’ll discuss how confirmation bias, wishful thinking, the sunk costs fallacy, and regression to the mean can influence our decisions about who to date, how to date, and when to end things.

Panelists: Wesley Fenza (moderator), Chana Messinger, Franklin Veaux, Miri Mogilevsky
