Jay Van Bavel is not your average Manhattanite professor, and this is not your average conversation. Jay explains how group identity shapes our minds and our behaviours – giving us common goals, but in some cases, driving deep divisions. He describes how being part of a group can make us better and healthier -- but also leaves us vulnerable to group-think. We talk about why choosing the right group is the most important decision you’ll make in your life, how identity shapes our response to tragedy, and how a piece of cubed cheese almost killed him, but also helped him form a much deeper relationship.
