TED talk friday – Sponsored by the Psychology Club

The Psi Beta Honor Society & Psychology club will be sponsoring this weeks TED talk. Come enjoy a TED talk that touches upon  the Club's mission and hear about the many offerings (and projects) they have in store for our campus this semester. Friday at 1pm on the 3rd floor of the Student Life Center (S307)

This week's talk: 

Dan Ariely - What makes us feel good about our work?
What motivates us to work? Contrary to conventional wisdom, it isn't just money. But it's not exactly joy either. It seems that most of us thrive by making constant progress and feeling a sense of purpose. Behavioral economist Dan Ariely presents two eye-opening experiments that reveal our unexpected and nuanced attitudes toward meaning in our work.
