Dear Positive Prime Influencer 🙂
I am going to URGE you to watch this TED talk. If I tell you a Behavioral Economist is speaking it may turn you off… like Cameron telling me he had decades in Tax Accounting… (thank goodness I’d already fallen in love with him before I got to know that!)
So please watch this.
It will make you really think about your thinking… your beliefs… the way you make decisions…
It may “frazzle you” as you come to terms with what is really being said!!!
If you’re into online marketing this should be an even higher priority!
Dan Ariely was born in New York City while his father was studying for an MBA degree at Columbia University. The family immigrated to Israel when he was three. He grew up in Ramat Hasharon. In his senior year of high school, he was active in Hanoar Haoved Vehalomed, an Israeli youth movement.
While he was preparing a ktovet esh (fire inscription) for a traditional nighttime ceremony, the flammable materials he was mixing exploded, causing third-degree burns over 70 percent of his body. In his writings Ariely describes how that experience led to his research on “how to better deliver painful and unavoidable treatments to patients.”
Dan Ariely is a professor of psychology and behavioral economics at Duke University and a founding member of the Center for Advanced Hindsight. He is the author of the bestsellers Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality, and The Honest Truth About Dishonesty — as well as the TED Book Payoff: The Hidden Logic that Shapes Our Motivations.
Through his research and his (often amusing and unorthodox) experiments, he questions the forces that influence human behavior and the irrational ways in which we often all behave.
For more fascinating finds – stay tuned!
