Cultivating Wisdom: The Power Of Mood | Lisa Feldman Barrett | TEDxCambridge

  • Опубликовано: 18 май 2018
  • Do you believe that what you see influences how you feel? Actually, the opposite is true: What you feel - your "affect" - influences what you see, hear, smell, taste, and touch. Psychologist and neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett shares the groundbreaking discovery that you experience the world through affect-colored glasses. She also reveals how affect can be a source of wisdom that helps you to make better, wiser choices. Learn more at Lisa Feldman Barrett is a University Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Northeastern University, with positions in psychiatry and radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. She has published over 200 peer-reviewed research papers in top journals on emotion, psychology, and neuroscience. Her research teams span the globe, studying people in the West, the East, and remote parts of Africa. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

    Some good info, however....
    By what your saying Ms Barret, it sounds as if you're "affect" is: There is no such thing as truth. 2+2 will always equal 4---Never will it be anything you "think" it should be. It's the exact reason you trust the plane you're getting in, ready to fly over the Atlantic or anywhere else for that matter. That plane is built on precise mathematical facts.
    It's the pilot that "affects" me.

    How ironic that Barrett’s message is to step back from our deeply held beliefs, to open our minds, and yet she uses an Obama victim story as an example of “fake news”. I would find her more authentic if she chose a “fake news” political story that conflicted with her political
    views. Barrett has NO DOUBT in her certainty that there is no “fake news” perpetrated by the media against someone she opposes, like
    Donald Trump. And yet, it is the rampant “fake news” that has managed to turn Trump into a sympathetic figure for those conservatives, who previously opposed to him. Perhaps Ms. Barrett needs to “dial down” her certainty, examine her deeply held beliefs, and she can be a better teacher to her students. Perhaps our liberal universities won’t need “safe spaces” where students are safe from opposing views.

    The final practical message of taking deep breaths and make a pause reminds me of some eastern philosophy and approaches

    Was Nadella of Microsoft is in the audience? at 17:00 , his expression for "obviously foolishness" term usage is so good...
    Very informative.
    I feel (!) the main challenge in adoption is with the clock cycle difference between the System1 and System2. If Affect uses System1 and awareness uses System2 it is cognitively inefficient to use System2 for all our choices. Deliberate practice would take several repeations to unlearn and replace the prior affect reactions. Any easy way out?

      Is it her? Or how far technology has come. As in her microphone will pick up all the sounds, unlike the ones years ago. And sound systems, have fine tuned sound as well..
