DECISION FACTOR Free cool lecture at MOS (register with Eventbrite link)

Click this link before you do anything else -

http://decisionfactor.eventbrite.com/

_____________________________________________________

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.

    Nice guy sitting next to me in front row informed me that Amy Cuddy did a similar lecture for TED talks. Link: http://www.ted.com/talks/amy_cuddy_your_body_language_shapes_who_you_are.html.

    Not exactly what I was expecting, but quite interesting!

  • Dawn

    I really enjoyed the lectures - thanks for arranging Eric! Wish there was a meet location so I could have interacted with other members. Look forward to meeting others at the next event.

  • Brian M.

    Very good

  • Irina

    It was an interesting evening, but not what the topic suggested

    November 3, 2012

  • Jeong

    Not what I expected from the title of the lecture but it was enjoyable and informative. I'll go practice the "power pose"

    Caught a few interesting factoids, here and there, but, on the whole, the lecture-or series of "lecturettes"-was rushed, too dry and technical, and, though the Museum's promotional material gave me the impression that the lecture was going to be about how humans make decisions in general, the material presented focused almost exclusively on how we make decisions about political matters, and, even then, it did so too obliquely.

    Really interesting talks.

    November 2, 2012

  • Jeanne S.

    Interesting and informative.

    November 2, 2012

  • Tun L

    Very informative and educative lectures delivered in a humorous way.

    November 2, 2012

  • Sam

    The speakers were informative and witty. I think this panel should get a spot on the Jon Stewart Show. Excellent evening!

      If you haven't reached the 95 tolls, I had good luck taking 95 South to Rt 16 East, then taking that until it hit the Pike again. Good luck!

  • Marat

    Hi Jen, I'll take your extra ticket. Thank you!

    November 2, 2012

    • Jen

      I should be there by 6, so can have the people at the desk change the name so you can just check in.

      November 2, 2012

  • Jen

    My +1 just told me he has to stay at work, so if anyone still doesn't have a ticket and wants to go, I have an extra reserved spot...

    November 2, 2012

  • Tun L

    Is there a place and sign for the group members to get together before the lecture?

    November 2, 2012

    • Eric

      Don't worry, when I see a polar bear and two penguins come in I will wave.

      1 · November 2, 2012

    • Tun L

      The problem is: I don't wear something like that.

      November 2, 2012

  • Irina

    Hmm, put myself and my daughter on the waiting list while could not specify that 2 people are attending, so had to do it one at a time. Now I got the ticket, but not my daughter. Not sure what to do...

    November 2, 2012

    • Bethany M.

      I have an extra ticket

      November 2, 2012

    • Irina

      @Bethany. Thank you! I will take it :)

      November 2, 2012

  • Eric

    There is a Celtics game tonight. (traffic) That means that some people probably won't make it in time for the lecture... What does that mean for you? Unclaimed tickets

    November 2, 2012

  • Grace

    Should I take a chance and just show up at 6pm? What are the chances of getting a ticket?

    November 2, 2012

    • Eric

      There have been 30+ empty seats at every lecture so the chances of getting in are very good.

      November 2, 2012

    • Grace

      great thanks! I'll be there!

      November 2, 2012

  • Jane

    Hi EB, thanks for the message. Checking in one hour before the program? Does that mean arrive at 5:30pm this evening?

    November 2, 2012

    • Jane

      Chris, thanks for the reply! I will be there at 6 then.

      November 2, 2012

    • Tun L

      Is there a place and sign for the group members to get together?

      November 2, 2012

  • Grace

    would love to attend but tickets are sold out. I'm on the waiting list.

    November 2, 2012

  • Muslimah

    I added myself to the waitlist this morning --> I received a ticket just now. You really should not have any problems getting a ticket to this event.

    November 1, 2012

  • Eric

    Thank you all for the updates and encouraging people to come to the event. One last note: The sign in table keeps a wait list for walk-ins so if you don't have a ticket, you need to get in line and sign into the museum's wait list.

    November 1, 2012

  • E B

    From MOS, in their reminder email: "Please check in at the registration table starting one hour prior to the program start time to claim your seating pass. Any seating passes not claimed 15 minutes before the program will be released to walk-in visitors."

  • tamm

    i, too, forgot to register via eventbrite. my Partner and i are on the waiting list. if i don't hear from MOS by the afternoon of Nov 2, i'll take us off the rsvp list for this meetup. this looks like a great lecture, so it would be wonderful if tickets became available.

    October 30, 2012

    • tamm

      we got our ticket offers online this morning, so we now have seats and will be attending. yay!

      October 31, 2012

  • LuAnn V.

    I messed up but I'm going to come and try to pick up an orphaned ticket.

    October 29, 2012

  • Eric

    There are frequently unused tickets available at the museum because of museum no shows so it may be worth showing up (risk is low) if you'd like to attend still.

    October 29, 2012

  • Tun L

    Got it. Thanks!

    October 29, 2012

  • Tun L

    It seems that I only RSVPed here and did not register with Eventbrite. Can I still attend?

    Hi, Eric.
    I've read all the info. on this page, above, and REGISTERED USING THE LINK TO EVENTBRITE.COM. I know this is the ONLY way to actually get in to the DECISION FACTOR lecture. I know that simply RSVPing "Yes" for this event actually ACCOMPLISHES NOTHING, except, maybe, to give you, the organizer, some idea of how many people to expect at your event. (Aren't I special?;-p)

    October 19, 2012

    • Odette I.

      Ciao darlings, so I am at the waiting list, as usual... :( it is becoming the common "me", lately). I am so not myself and late with everything with the condo renovation... aaaaah!

      October 29, 2012

    • Odette I.

      And we love you both, for always reminding us and keeping us on track! :) :)

      October 29, 2012

  • Sam

    Is anyone going to the observatory later?

    October 22, 2012

    • Eric

      Gary posted it as a separate event so it looks like a lot of people are going.

      October 22, 2012

  • Eric

    A reminder from the Museum: If you register with Eventbrite and then can not go, please use the instructions in the confirmation email and let the Museum know so that they can release the tickets.

    October 19, 2012

    • Eric

      and make sure your tray table is in it's upright and locked position.

    Point well-taken, Kate. :-) Also, I should have said that RSVPing "Yes," without first/ALSO registering ONE'S SELF for (a) seat(s) at this event using the link (provided twice, above) to Eventbrite, really only serves to give one a rough idea of how many people BELIEVE they've done everything they need to to get into this event.

    October 19, 2012

  • Kate D.

    And also to let the other people attending know who to look for when they get there.

    All sorts of obvious, bad jokes one could make re: the title of this lecture. I'll spare you all...for now. ;-) Thanks for getting on this and posting it so quickly, E. -pok

    October 18, 2012

  • Tim

    Looks like registration for non-members doesn't start until Oct. 19th.
