Worthwhile Detours

TedTalks Explore the Psychology of Happiness and Decision-Making

Intrigued by how humans navigate the complexities of life, Harvard psychologist and best-selling author Daniel Gilbert makes headlines with his research into the processes of decision-making (see his talk below). He is particularly interested in questions about how well people can predict how they will feel about future events, how people understand each other, and how the illusions people have about the world and themselves affect their lives.

Dr. Gilbert has given three Ted Talks, the links to which can be found under the Speaking tab of his website.
