We Know What You’re Thinking (30)

We Know What You’re Thinking
Darrell Bricker and John Wright

Are Canadians an open book and predictable when it comes to their decisions and how they answer questions? According to the authors, Canadians are pretty predictable in their behaviors and decisions.

This book is an in-depth look at how Canadians think and make decisions. The authors present fascinating facts about Canadians from every province and territory, of all ages and income brackets.

Here are a few interesting facts:

  • Forty percent of Canadians trust what pollsters say.
  • There are also many things that Canadians don’t know.
  • People change their minds a lot.
  • No Canadian’s thinking is completely unpredictable.
  • We know who we believe and who we don’t.

But are these ways usually predictable? The facts that the authors laid out in the book didn’t totally surprise me. However. as a philosopher, I must ay that it bothers me to realize how little Canadian think for themselves. This is really sad. What happened to our thinking capacities? And why do we sometimes entertain trite ideas? Well, I’ll leave that question for psychologists to answer. What an illuminating book!
