What? Lecture on the psychology of success
Who? Ian Robertson, professor of Psychology at Trinity College, Dublin
When? 6 September, 20.00 hours
Where? Impulse, building no. 115 on campus
Robertson will go beyond an account of laboratory experiments, hormones and brain scans to speculate on the psychological mechanisms behind well-known events. For example, Tony Blair's series of resounding election victories went to his head and he spoiled his relationship with President Clinton. Another relevant example is the greed and remoteness from reality in international business banks, which plunged the world into an economic crisis. There will be plenty of interest for anyone interested in popular psychology. And others? It is worth coming for the excellent coffee served at Impulse. Unique on campus.
