I Will Find Happiness Through Lies, I Herewith Swear

Heard this on Radiolab this morning; an episode about deception:

“We are so vulnerable to being hurt that we are given the capacity to distort as a gift.”

Some researcher, some guy, some lady, said it. And I kept hearing it like an earworm. It explains everything, only not at all.

The show discussed findings that reveal that people who deceive themselves are more likely to be successful and happy. FUCK.
