Let's Learn About Decision-Making!

Lecture at
Museum of Science

With Amy Cuddy, PhD, associate professor of business administration, Harvard Business School; David DeSteno, PhD, professor of psychology, Northeastern University; Peter Hatemi, PhD, associate professor of political science and microbiology, The Pennsylvania State University; research fellow, United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney; Rose McDermott, PhD, professor of political science, Brown University; Todd Rogers, PhD, assistant professor, Center for Public Leadership, Harvard Kennedy School.

We size up people and situations every day, making judgments in less time than it takes to blink: Should I trust this woman? Is that man competent? Is this person telling the truth?

Scientists are finding that how our brains perceive and process information—neurocognitive processes involving the interaction and interplay of genes, socialization, and environmental stimuli—affects the beliefs we hold and the assumptions we make.

Dive into the exploding field of decision-making and the nuances that influence everything from job interviews to presidential elections and more.

Fee: Free, register online

Advance registration begins at 9:00 a.m., Friday, October 19 (Wednesday, October 17 for Museum members).

Admission is free, thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.

    Need tickets? Often tickets become available the night of the event from cancellations. So it can be worth it to show up and see if they've had cancellations. No 100% guarantee, but often there is space available. :-)

    I'm confused, is the 11/2 meeting on decluttering or decision-making?

    September 24, 2012

    • Judy

      Thanks Jo- Decision-making has much to do with decluttering, in fact: this past weekend, I asked a friend who struggles with hoarding what she'd especially like to know more about, to help with decluttering. She immediately said, "Decision-making."­ Since I'd noticed that the Museum of Science had scheduled this very topic for a lecture/ panel discussion, I figured we ALL could benefit from the information. Hoping to see you there!
