Synopsis:

You are a mind reader, born with an extraordinary ability to understand what others think, feel, believe, want, and know. It’s a sixth sense you use every day, in every personal and professional relationship you have. At its best, this ability allows you to achieve the most important goal in almost any life: connecting, deeply and intimately and honestly, to other human beings. At its worst, it is a source of misunderstanding and unnecessary conflict, leading to damaged relationships and broken dreams.

How good are you at knowing the minds of others? How well can you guess what others think of you, know who really likes you, or tell when someone is lying? How well do you really understand the minds of those closest to you, from your spouse to your kids to your best friends? Do you really know what your coworkers, employees, competitors, or clients want?

In this illuminating exploration of one of the great mysteries of the human mind, University of Chicago psychologist Nicholas Epley introduces us to what scientists have learned about our ability to understand the most complicated puzzle on the planet—other people—and the surprising mistakes we so routinely make. Why are we sometimes blind to the minds of others, treating them like objects or animals? Why do we sometimes talk to our cars, or the stars, as if there is a mind that can hear us? Why do we so routinely believe that others think, feel, and want what we do when, in fact, they do not? And why do we believe we understand our spouses, family, and friends so much better than we actually do? Mindwise will not turn other people into open books, but it will give you the wisdom to revolutionize how you think about them—and yourself.

About the Author: Nicholas Epley is the John Templeton Keller Professor of Behavioral Science at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. He has written for The New York Times and published more than fifty articles in two dozen journals in his field.

Book Description Allen Lane, London, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: Mint. First Edition. MINDWISE How We Understand what Others Think, Believe, Feel and Want. Nicholas Epley Allen Lane, London. 2014 First edition ISBN 9781846144332 244pp Paperback Original. This copy is in mint unread condition in illustrated card covers as issued. Arguably our brain's greatest sense is the ability to understand the minds of others - our real sixth sense. In Mindwise, renowned psychologist Nicholas Epley takes us on a tour of our incredible capacity for mind reading. This is the kind of mind reading we do every day of our lives, dozens of times a day, when we infer what others are thinking, feeling, wanting, or intending. The kind that enables you to build and maintain the intimate relationships that make life worth living, to maintain a desired reputation in the eyes of others, to work effectively in a team, and to outwit and outlast your competition. The kind that forms the foundation of all social interaction. Yet, as great as this sense may be, Epley reveals that it is still prone to critical errors. We often misread social or work situations, misjudge others' characters, or guess the wrong motives for their actions. Sometimes, these slip-ups are deadly serious, leading to violence and conflict. Crucially, Epley shows how these errors are not random, but systematic and avoidable. Relying solely on our sixth sense can be a mistake. Drawing on the latest in psychological research, he suggests that only by learning more about our brain's greatest sense will we have the humility to overcome our mistakes, fine-tune our instincts and understand others as they actually are instead of as we imagine them to be.
