Terence Dores Cruz, PhD candidate in the Force of Gossip, discussed his research on how gossip in everyday life could serve to communicate information important to understand others' trustworthiness, how people largely believe such information, and that they use that information to form and update reputations that guide whether people cooperate with or avoid people in their social network.
