Confidence Games Why We Fall for Them...Every Time
Would you know if you were being conned?
New York Times bestselling author Maria Konnikova explained the psychological principles that make swindling us so easy. From suspicious-looking emails to seductively-structured investment programs, tricksters and grifters use everything at their disposal to persuade us to part with our money. In a world in which the internet makes it easier than ever to access information and adopt new identities, even the savviest of individuals can be tricked. Could you be?
In The Confidence Game, Konnikova tells the fascinating stories about some of the most seductive imposters in history, taking us into the world of the con to examine not only why we believe in confidence artists, but how our sense of truth can be manipulated by those around us.
This event was sponsored by Leadership Lab and the Deloitte Foundation.
