Overview

Dr. Ian Robertson, a professor of psychology at Trinity College, Dublin, explores the mechanisms behind confidence that have emerged in science and neuroscience over the last decade, including how certain factors influence the way confidence plays out in our minds and bodies. Dr. Robertson addresses the full life-cycle of confidence, from its birth and contagion to its potentially enormous consequences, and how confidence doesn't have to come naturally in order to be improved.
