Thinking Outside The Locks
Thinking in straight lines is great — if you want to draw chess boards. But if you want to understand people, you need to think in curves, twists and warps. People are non-rational systems on legs, and if you want to spot the mistakes they make, i.e. bugs, you often need to think in non-rational ways. Ian Rowland is an expert in non-rational thinking. He has trained FBI agents to read minds, written jokes for Eddie Izzard, and taught Olympic athletes how to out-psych their opponents. His unique presentation draws on such diverse fields as magic, creative thinking, flying shoes, making things invisible and how to get banned from casinos. He will teach you how to think in ways that are fascinating and beautifully illogical.
Warning: this presentation contains miracles that may hurt your brain.
