Saturday Catch-Up: We Are Who Other People Think We Are

Will Storr explains that “we are who we think other people think we are.” Read that sentence at least two or three times, then do it again.

If you trace that concept through time and space, as he does in his book Selfie: How We Became so Self-Obsessed, and What it is Doing to Us, then you can understand why the early 2000s rhyme with Ancient Greece, what social media has added to the mix, and even where we might be headed.

Listen to Storr on the “You Are Not So Smart” podcast with David McRaney to talk about these concepts and more.

Give it a listen, there’s a lot going on here and it overlaps with all aspects of work, life, culture, and family.
