Behind the Mask · The Paradox of Choice During COVID

It’s human nature to want to maximize the options available to us, and to fall into a state of despair when we feel our choices being taken away. But Dr. Barry Schwartz, eminent psychologist and author of “The Paradox of Choice,” proposes that amongst everything COVID has taken from us, perhaps losing our abundance of choice has in fact been a blessing in disguise.
