Bobby Duffy: “We're wrong about nearly everything”

Attending the launch of the Romanian edition of 'Perils of Perception: Why We’re Wrong About Nearly Everything', Bobby Duffy gave an interview to online publisher PressOne.

Bobby Duffy is Professor of Public Policy and Director of the Policy Institute at King’s College London, and former managing director of the Social Research Institute at Ipsos MORI. Informed by exclusive research across 40 countries, conducted by global polling firm Ipsos, The Perils of Perception investigates why we don't know basic facts about the world around us.Using the latest research into the media and decision science, Bobby Duffy asks how we can address our ignorance and why the populations of some countries seem better informed than others. Essential reading in the so-called 'post-truth' era, this book will transform the way you engage with the world.

It is one of the key findings of this book: that perception of reality is rather driven by emotions than factual data. We believe we have the right answer, but in fact we send a message about what worries us.
