Daniel Gilbert Speaker Biography

Daniel Gilbert Keynote Topics

Happiness: What Your Mother Didn’t Tell You
Most of us think we know what would make us happy and that our only problem is getting it. But research in psychology, economics, and neuroscience shows that people are not very good at predicting what will make them happy, how happy it will make them, and how long that happiness will last. Is the problem that we can’t really imagine what our futures will hold? Is the problem that our friends and family mislead us about the true sources of human happiness? Yes, and yes again. Professor Gilbert will explain why, when it comes to finding happiness, we can’t always trust our imaginations or our mothers.
How to Do Precisely the Right Thing At All Possible Times
Floss daily, save for retirement, and don’t wear plaid pants before or after Labor Day. Most experts tell us what to decide but they don’t tell us how, and so the moment we face a novel decision—should I move to Cleveland or Anchorage? Become an architect or a pastry chef?—we’re lost. Is there any way to know how to do precisely the right thing at all possible times? In fact, science provides a simple method for making decisions. Although that method is easy to understand, most of us don’t apply it in our daily lives, and so we make a host of mistakes that we later regret. New research in psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral economics explains why.
