Deception and Estimation: How We Fool Ourselves

Monday, 27th February at Skills Matter, London

This meetup was organised by Skills Matter In The Brain in February 2012

Deception and Estimation: How We Fool Ourselves

As humans, we are hardwired for deception — to be overly optimistic about outcomes. In this talk, Linda Rising demonstrates how hard it is for us to see our poor estimating skills and offers practical advice on living and working with the self-deception that is hardwired in all of us.

Linda Rising
