SYSK Choice: How to Figure Out Anything & The Art of Statistics
It is called the “psychology of requests.” That is, if you want someone to do something for you, it is all about how you phrase it. This episode begins with a discussion on the best ways to ask people, so they respond the way you want and do things you want them to. http://nymag.com/scienceofus/2016/09/persuasive-techniques-that-actually-work.html
Every day you are presented with problems. According to my guest Marie Forleo, all those problems can be solved with the right attitude and the right approach. Marie Forleo is a wildly popular entrepreneur, writer, philanthropist, optimist and author of the book, Everything is Figureoutable (https://amzn.to/32NIeVw). Listen as she offers a fresh way to look at and solve the problems of life. Marie’s website is www.MarieForleo.com
Of course, you know that it’s not polite to stare. Still, people stare. So, if you do, how long can you stare before you creep people out? Listen as I reveal the exact number of seconds – down to a tenth of a second so you will now know proper staring etiquette. http://rsos.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/3/7/160086
Statistics are funny. It seems you can make them say whatever you want – in fact you can just make them up out of thin air and likely never get caught. Unless of course you are talking with my guest, David Spiegelhalter. He is a British statistician and Winton Professor of the Public Understanding of Risk in the Statistical Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. He is also author of the book The Art of Statistics (https://amzn.to/30amC8T). David joins me to reveal how best to use statistics to bolster your own argument and how to question other people when they use statistics to make sure they are real and relevant.
