A dear friend of mine (a true smart cookie!) who studied Social Psych pointed out another interesting online lecture on TED.com (yes, yet again!).
This time round, it’s all about the psychology of evil, and how ordinary people are predisposed to be monsters or heroes. Trust me, it’s really fascinating stuff.
She did give me the heads-up that she didn’t quite reckon the talk as "inspiring" but "enlightening", since psychologist Zimbardo isn’t a very good public speaker & I agree with her that the man rambles breathlessly and fidgets too much, and doesn’t quite plan his time properly so he kinda rushes the end-part (which we both thought was most important!).
Anyway, I thought I’d share his insight with you cos — i think — it’s really what he said about monsters and heroes being "ordinary" people. And it’s a choice. See: http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/philip_zimbardo_on_the_psychology_of_evil.html
Anyway, speaking of SUPERHEROES… our kids edutainment company Mighty Magic Factory will be taking brand new professional studio photos in just a couple of days to revamp the current website.
