Ted Talk Tuesday

Join us for FREE Pizza and a TED talk on Tuesday, September 20 at noon in the Student Services Center room 211, the Leadership Lab! We will be screening Julia Galef’s TED Talk titled, "Why you think you’re right even if you’re wrong.” Perspective is everything, especially when it comes to examining your beliefs. Are you a soldier, prone to defending your viewpoint at all costs — or a scout, spurred by curiosity? Julia Galef examines the motivations behind these two mindsets and how they shape the way we interpret information, interweaved with a compelling history lesson from 19th-century France. When your steadfast opinions are tested, Galef asks: "What do you most yearn for? Do you yearn to defend your own beliefs or do you yearn to see the world as clearly as you possibly can?"

Any further questions may be directed to the Student Development office SSC 210, by calling 949-582-4616 or by emailing scstudentdevelopment@saddleback.edu.
