Our Ambivalent Concept of Luck

Some folks consider "luck" to be the result of supernatural forces that work for us or against us, while others look at luck as random occurrences that have nothing to do with who we are. The former can either guide our decisions or cause us to rebel against the very idea. The latter robs us of agency, as people are loathe to believe that randomness in the universe has anything to do with our lives. A previous post pointed to research about the role of luck in our successes and failures. This video from The School of Life looks at why we are not likely to accept the findings that random luck plays a big part in how our lives turn out. -via Laughing Squid
