4:00 - 5:00 p.m.: Decisions are made by gut feeling
Dipl.-Psych. Franz Haßlberger / Head of Media & More
„Leave your feelings aside when making important decisions.“ This frequently heard advice reflects our excessive overestimation of rationality. Those who rely on the gut feeling as guiding principle are often smiled at.
In his talk, the speaker examines the relevance of emotions and intuition as well as their inseparable connection to cognitive procedures in decision-making processes. Through the understanding of basic processes and psychological mechanisms in this context, own and others’ decisions can be better understood and questioned.
