In the January 9th issue of Time magazine, writer Jeff Wise explores what we fear. To quote:
“Another year, another 365 days-wait 366-in which things could go terribly terribly wrong. but how? Identifying the most pressing threats turns out to be unexpectedly difficult. Psychologists say we innately misjudge risk, often becoming instinctively fixated on perceived threats that aren’t really hazardous while overlooking real dangers because they don’t set off our subconscious alarm bell.”
He categorizes four areas: What we fear, What we don’t fear, Not Dangerous and Dangerous.
What we fear/not dangerous: flying, insects and asteroids, cell-phone radiation and gluten.
What we fear/dangerous: cancer, lightening and smoking, viruses and sharks.
What we don’t fear/dangerous: raw milk, nuclear war, global warming, obesity and heart disease.
What we don’t fear/not dangerous: Teddy Bears, Money, Hugs and Librarians.
How refreshing to know
