Leonard Mlodinow - Subliminal: How Your Unconscious Mind Influences Your Behavior
From NECSS 2013; From your preference in politicians to the amount you tip your waiter, all your judgments and perceptions reflect the workings of your mind on two levels: the conscious, of which we are aware, and the unconscious, which is hidden from us. As a result, we often misperceive our relationships with friends, family, and business associates, misunderstanding the reasons for our personal feelings, investment decisions, and other important judgments. Dr. Mlodinow will talk about the revolution in the scientific understanding of the unconscious that has occurred in the past decade, and what it means for our lives.
