  • Why people bullshit?
    • Eric Ambler — “Never tell a lie when you can bullshit your way through it.”
    • Harry Frankfurt - “One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit.” Bullshit is everywhere.
  • How to detect bullshit?
    • Using bullshit detector - a mental device that represents a person’s ability to detect deception, dishonesty, corruption, fraud, insincerity, hypocrisy and falsity in others.
    • A key indicator of bullshit is the asymmetry of risks - when someone who does not have a skin in the game advocates something that benefits him if it succeeds but hurts only you if it fails, then he is bullshitting you.
