If you’ve heard about this “dissonance” stuff but don’t know what it is and would like a video of a hot psychology professor explaining it, look no further. I experienced dissonance as I both enjoyed the diavlog and remembered this critique of the monkey M&M study which is brought up. Another subject discussed in loss aversion, which I would strangely experience to a great degree when I played video games that I could always reload/replay with no permanent consequence. Mrs. Santos’ future plans include advertisements directed at monkeys, which I would really like to see.
