The Secret to Great Teams
It's easy to think that the best teams are collections of highly accomplished or talented individuals, working under a skilled leader. But that's no guarantee of success. Psychologist Anita Woolley [https://www.cmu.edu/tepper/faculty-and-research/faculty-by-area/profiles/williams-woolley-anita.html] says the best teams are far more than the sum of their parts, and they share certain basic characteristics.

Outsmarting Yourself
After we make a decision, we often tell ourselves a story about why our choice was the right one to make. It's a mental process that psychologist Elliot Aronson [https://psychology.ucsc.edu/about/people/faculty.php?uid=elliot] calls self-justification. These rationalizations can sometimes lead us to excuse bad behavior or talk ourselves out of a poor choice. But are there also times when self-justification can be used for good? This is the second part of our series on cognitive dissonance. Listen to the first episode: How We Live with Contradictions [https://hiddenbrain.org/podcast/how-we-live-with-contradictions/].

How We Live With Contradictions
Think about the last time you did something you knew was wrong. How did you explain your actions to yourself? All of us tell stories about why we do the things we do. We justify our failures, and come up with plausible explanations for our actions. This week, Elliot Aronson [https://psychology.ucsc.edu/about/people/faculty.php?uid=elliot] explains the mental processes behind this type of self-justification, and shares how he helped develop one of the most widely-known concepts in psychology: cognitive dissonance. If you're interested in learning more about the origins of cognitive dissonance, listen to our episode When You Need It To Be True [https://hiddenbrain.org/podcast/when-you-need-it-to-be-true/].
