'the divided self'

February 2017

IAFOR is the international think tank based in Japan and has a very significant international audience.  The thesis that I discussed was that the clash between the operation of more unconscious and automatic processes in human beings, and their more conscious and controlled processes, can lead to particular challenges when it comes to promoting issues like sustainability, and equality and diversity.  Human beings sometimes respond in ways that are not desirable because of the operation of these two 'systems' of thought.  I was also interviewed about 'Big Brother', when it was on Channel 4, and why it might have been psychologically informative.
