Lazy brains

When I was growing up, no one told me my brain was lazy and wired to seek the shortest distance to reward.

I was never accused of being biased, and I didn’t know I suffered from FOMO and social comparison.

Today we not only tell each other that our brains are lazy, we build technologies that are designed to "punch the right buttons in our brains as effectively and reliably as possible".*

I wonder how it affects our ability to grow that we think and talk about ourselves as lazy and biased?

And what would happen if we not only told each other that we are curious and collaborative, but build technologies that make it easier for us to commit to a shared purpose?
