Reactance Theory

This week Fred introduces us to the psychological concept of Reactance Theory, that describes some people who hate being told what to do so much that they will act against their best interests to resist authority. We apply this theory to civil disruptions around the AFL grand final and to recent protests in Melbourne to ask why some of these event happen despite measure to limit the spread of COVID.

Give this a listen for some interesting psychology and current affairs.
