Why do some people struggle more than others to keep off the pounds?
Social psychologist, Emily Balcetis, explores perception, motivation, goal-setting and decision-making from conscious and non-conscious levels.
Research shows that one of the many impacting factors is our vision. In this informative talk, Emily shows how when it comes to fitness, some people, quite literally see the world differently -- and offers a surprisingly simple solution to overcome these differences. Her current work focuses on how our vision can work against us when it comes to effective exercise. Her goal is to show that through our awareness of these biases, we can overcome them.
