Why do we follow Leaders? - Auslandsbüro Libanon
This portlet should not exist anymore
In Lebanon, we have a history of following political leaders or "al za3im" or political parties without really understanding or knowing what is behind this decision or judgement.
We will discuss in this session the topic of "following leaders" from a psychological perspective with the expert in Neuroscience and Psychology Dr Albert Moukheiber.
We will talk about:
- Why do we follow leaders?
- What is stopping change?
- What are the obstacles for change in societies
- How can Psychology help us in making a change
We will discuss also how we make a decision in following a leader as we are not as gullible as we think, many factors impact how we take decisions, some are individual factors but others are systemic:
- it has nothing to do with intelligence but about who you trust.
We will expand on the concepts on:
- learned helplessness.
- cognitive dissonance.
- importance of the system.
