Rationality is Overrated

Level: Beginner

Most people consider themselves to be rational. Indeed, to tell someone that they are irrational is considered an insult. But, what does it mean to be rational? Are we really rational? Is it rational to believe that we are rational?

In this presentation I will make the case that we are not only irrational in some cases, but almost all the time. The human mind is much more effective when it is making decisions without thinking consciously!

"Facts are useful; they give the conscious mind something to do while the emotions decide what's true!" -- Dale Dauten

This presentation will give you a fresh view on how to make the most out of your brain.
