Description

"Human beings are works in progress that mistakenly think they're finished." Dan Gilbert shares recent research on a phenomenon he calls the "end of history illusion," where we somehow imagine that the person we are right now is the person we'll be for the rest of time. Hint: that's not the case.

I wonder is it possible to explain this another way, that we tend to overestimate the change we went through in the past. When we really think about it, circumstances may transformed us on the outside, but underneath, we are still that same character.
