In this talk, Andrew Little, an assistant professor of political science at UC Berkeley, introduces a model for studying the distortion of related beliefs — when conclusions people wish to reach about themselves and the world conflict with those that are objectively reasonable. Among other applications, this model provides new insight into 'imposter syndrome" and "persecution complex."
