According to the studies, our brains are hard-wired to argue, seek revenge, and impede rational decision-making. They cause people to take excessive risks, to reject proposals that are in their best interests, and to reinforce their erroneous assumptions despite compelling contrary data. This workshop is a fascinating look at brain science and the challenge of overcoming human nature.
