Yogi Berra once mentioned that humans are particularly bad at making predictions... especially about the future. Daniel Kahneman, 2002 Nobel Prize winner in the Economic Sciences and one of the most influential living psychologists, agrees. Kahneman's decades of dedicated, ingenious, experimental work on the processes of the human mind have allowed him to shape, with scientific precision, details about our inherent tendencies to err mentally on the side of laziness, and to believe in our own thoughts and the contents of what we are thinking, in a way that, in fact, is highly misleading. Why can't we undergo great physical exertion and do complicated multiplication at the same time? Where are we at risk of feeling confident around our predictive faculties when they're actually being shaped by shadowed influences? Join Kahneman tonight and be subjected to your own inner workings in a fun, informative, and surprising way.
