Going along with Brian Dillman’s previous announcement, this is the first episode from our new series “The Human Mormon Mind.” This is a series where we discuss topics related to psychology and self-deception science in general. Many of our topics will be inspired from the book “You Are Not So Smart” by David Mcraney. In today’s episode Benjamin Knoll, Brian Kissell, and Brian Dillman discuss the topic of priming as it is related to Mormonism. As you listen to us discuss some of the primes we see within Mormonism, I would encourage you to share any that we may not have brought up. Thank you for listening.
