When people get together, there is often one stand-out individual who others turn to for answers. This person has the best advice on everything from raising children to running a business, and offers the most penetrating insights into world events. Their understanding of people, and why we act as we do, makes them the wisest one in the room. Psychologists Thomas Gilovich and Lee Ross reveal their discipline’s greatest discoveries so we can all become wiser. From conflict resolution to overcoming social shyness, and from winning a tennis match to encouraging people to recycle, they demonstrate how even small changes in social context, feedback or presentation can achieve dramatic results. Replete with real-world examples, The Wisest One in the Room is a fascinating examination of human behaviour, revealing how we can become more adept at tackling the challenges, great and small, that we face every day.

The king of Mwanjil kingdom, King Maminajipe’chatchat had a dream. The dream was a reality and his chief dream interpreter told him that it’s going to be a daunting task to accomplish it. When the king went to Abam’akura village, a naturally rich village, the king’s dream was revealed. As interpreted, a tiniest troglodyte Satke’chilenkat appeared in the beautifully mountainous mountains and angrily shouted on him to go away. The king angrily went away in great disappointment after fruitless attempts to talk to the mountain man. In trying to realize his dream, he sent several letters to Satke’chilenkat to come to his palace for peaceful negotiation, but he succeeded not. The king decided he will go to war against the tiniest man. Like King Saul, he consulted the gods to tell him the outcome of the war. When he consulted the gods, the gods told him the army will suffer the most humiliating defeat of their lives. The gods strongly warned him never to go to war, but as pride goes before a fall, the king deferred the godly advice, because he had greedily put his possessive eyes on the fabulously virgin village. As warned by the gods, the army truly suffered the greatest defeat in a battle of the wittiest. The tiniest man’s all-important demons outfaced the king’s army. Despite the disappointingly disgraceful defeats, the king never gives up. The king switched to plan C by offering his stunningly beautiful daughter, Milelamkat to ANY MAN who can kill Satke’chilenkat. Acclaimed greatest warriors responded to the clarion call, but none of them succeeded in killing the wonderfully powerful man. Yet the king never wants to give up. It was Nim’asa with great wisdom that solved the king’s problem. He’s a great warrior of words of peace and not of lethal weapons. He finally brought Satke’chilenkat to the king’s palace. He proves to everybody that sincerely peaceful dialogue solves all differences without anger, let alone fighting a war. He marries the exquisitely, attractively and most beautiful princess in the greatest kingdom. They lived very, very happy thereafter.

Thomas Gilovich offers a wise and readable guide to the fallacy of the obvious in everyday life. When can we trust what we believe—that "teams and players have winning streaks," that "flattery works," or that "the more people who agree, the more likely they are to be right"—and when are such beliefs suspect? Thomas Gilovich offers a guide to the fallacy of the obvious in everyday life. Illustrating his points with examples, and supporting them with the latest research findings, he documents the cognitive, social, and motivational processes that distort our thoughts, beliefs, judgments and decisions. In a rapidly changing world, the biases and stereotypes that help us process an overload of complex information inevitably distort what we would like to believe is reality. Awareness of our propensity to make these systematic errors, Gilovich argues, is the first step to more effective analysis and action.
