Perspective is everything, especially when it comes to our beliefs. Are you the type of person who defends their viewpoint until the bitter end, or do you consider yourself more of an ‘explorer’, driven by your curiosity? The event will examine the motivation behind our attitudes, and how they shape the way we interpret information.
Joan Guardia is a professor at the Universitat de Barcelona School of Psychology, a member of the Institute for Research in Brain Cognition and Behaviour; and Interdisciplinary Group of Reflection and Mathematical Solutions for Entities. Guardia will be providing a brief introduction and leading a debate surrounding the topic at the next TedX event, providing guidance on how we can be more open-minded and see how the world as clearly as possible, rather than focusing on defending our beliefs.
The presentation will be in English; advance registration recommended.
