In this episode of the podcast, Brooke chats with Julia Galef - co-founder of the Center for Applied Rationality and host of the podcast 'Rationally Speaking'. They discuss the topic or Julia's book, 'The Scout Mindset' which looks at the underlying motivations that guide our beliefs and behaviors. Some of the things covered include…

- Scout versus soldier mindset - how they differ and why we rely on both, depending on the situation.

- The downsides of soldier mindset and why our tendency to defend our beliefs no matter what can get us into trouble.

- The benefits of adopting an evidence-based mindset and being open to things that challenge our beliefs, aka 'drawing the map in pencil'.

- Practical ways we can embrace a scout mindset in our personal and professional lives.
