Not long ago, the term “intellectual humility” sounded like jargon to me. But over the past year, I’ve become a bit of an intellectual humility devotee. While working on a series of articles about this topic, I’ve learned intellectual humility describes a willingness to own the possibility that you might be wrong about the things you believe and think are true.

When was the last time you changed your mind after learning new information? Or actually sought out perspectives that conflict with your own? It was humbling for me to realize how infrequently I challenge my own beliefs – but I’ve resolved to do better.

For our series, we collaborated with philosophers, political scientists, organizational behavior experts and psychology researchers. Psychology professor Daryl Van Tongeren wrote one of my favorite articles about what intellectual humility is, how it can benefit you and how researchers are investigating ways to get more of it. And now The Conversation Weekly podcast has talked with him about his research as well as events in his own life that got him interested in this field. I hope you enjoy it.
