The book "Conflicted by Ian Leslie" explores the idea that humans have not evolved to be perfect individuals. Each person has their own biases and tendencies to cling to them, even in the face of criticism. However, through sharing and discussing our biases, we can make better decisions and evolve as a society.
Understanding this mechanism helps us to comprehend why conflicts are unavoidable in human interaction, but they can be approached in a productive and constructive manner, leading to better decision-making and problem-solving.
While conflict and debate are natural parts of human interaction, they can become emotionally charged and lead to negative outcomes if not managed effectively. Prolonged conflicts and disagreements can create social distance and harm the cooperative atmosphere.
Therefore, it is important to be aware of these risks and use appropriate strategies to effectively manage conflicts and disagreements.
