October 7th Hamas attacked Israel, now Israel is attacking Gaza and the world is appears more divided than ever, in which side to support. Everybody appears to be 'rallying around a flag' if it were and if you don’t like the mayor in Rotterdam refused to do, you get scolded. The Economist oct. 16 headlines "Wartime leaders usually get a popularity bump. Israel’s hasn’t" what is going on, and what happens when the Rally Around the Flag Effect fails. Michaela talks about the rally around the flag effect.
March 4 expert on childhood-trauma, dr. Gabor Maté sat down with prince Harry in an online broadcast private session. Maté got severe backlash for doing this, to the point of him having regrets for participating in the event in the first place. Did negative associations with Harry make Maté seem guilty? With this as an example we discuss 'the Halo and the Horns' effect. Get ready for some biblical references and learn why Gabor Maté got scorned for his interview with Prince Harry.
Maté told his story of regret last week on the UK based Steven Bartlett Podcast called The Diary Of A CEO. In the podcast Gabor talks about how the UK tabloids coverage of his session with Harry ánd the fact that the session would not be permitted to be made public for fear of legal repercussions, were his main regrets.
But the story does not end there. When we go looking for the actual negative stories Gabor mentioned, our search engine turns up zero hits. Have they all been censored away? By the newspapers or by the search engines? One clip did turn up however. That of another UK based podcaster called Stef the Alter Nerd who actually saw the online session between Gabor and Harry and who showed actual newspaper clips in her show, through which a different story appears to be told. A story of both Harry and Gabor apparently discussing the virtues of a psychedelic drug called ayahuasca. Could the backlash on that be the reason for Maté's regret? '
The Halo and the Horns effect' in this interview is explained using the example of the Gabor Maté conversation with Steven Bartlett. Maté is a lifelong specialist in his field, well worth listening to. Was a halo effect affecting our judgement in choosing this example?
Harry meanwhile is busy selling his new book. His memoir. Did Harry perhaps arrange the uproar to sell some more copies? Or is that the horns effect affecting our judgement?

Governments often try to modify human behavior. Not always successfully. A perverse incentive is an incentive that has an unintended and undesirable result that is contrary to the intentions of its designers. It is a wide-spread phenomenon in organizations and society at large.
For instance rewarding the military-industrial complex for war or the pharmaceutical industry for keeping people sick (an develop medicines to treat the sickness).
The just world hypothesis is a positive illusion that the world is fair and that actions lead to positive consequences.
