Talking about the mind

Some great psychology talks...

Daniel Kahneman talks about how our reasons tend to follow (rather than support) our beliefs.

Dan Gilbert talks about happiness, saying that marriage (happy marriage) and divorce (in the case of bad marriages) makes us happier, how money buys happiness (but decreasingly so after around 40 to 70 grand), and how having kids makes us less happy.

Though not nearly as good, I also watched a BBC documentary on narcissism.
