Win Friends & Influence People with Mind Reading

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Saturday 9th March, 2013

1:15pm to 1:30pm (CST)

Thanks to eons of pre-language evolution, we're hard-wired to intuit what's in other people's minds and harmonize our thoughts and emotions. But too often our mind-reading instincts get overridden by a drive to win arguments. This talk will unlock your mind-reading mojo, first by digging into recent neuroscience research, then by reviewing techniques perfected by mind-reading magicians. The result: you'll become more adept at selling, brainstorming and just plain-old getting along with other minds.
