Nick Tasler - The Impulse Factor: Why Some of Us Play It Safe and Others Risk It All
English + [MP3 @ 256 Kbps, 2 channels, 44.1 KHz | ISBN-10: 1423375149 | Duration: ~8 hours | 932 MB
Genre: Business, Psychology & Decision-Making Audiobook | Author: Nick Tasler | Language: English






Quote:Are you likely to risk everything for a potentially huge payout? Or do you tend to look for a "safe bet"? Nick Tasler, research director for a workplace learning and training firm, examines the psychological and genetic factors that shape these human tendencies. He says that people approach decisions from either a "potential seeking" or "risk managing" perspective, and explains that how you manage the strengths and weaknesses of your particular decision-making style determines the quality of your choices. Tasler proves himself a raconteur as well as a scholar. His book is a delightful smorgasbord of case studies covering a variety of people and organizations, from Bill Gates and Neal Cassady to the National Football League's San Diego Chargers. getAbstract recommends this fascinating book to anyone who wants to understand and improve his or her decision-making style and abilities.

In his work as research and development director at cutting-edge think tank TalentSmart, Nick Tasler realized that the recent discovery by scientists of a potential-seeking gene could have a remarkable impact on how we understand decision making. Those who have this gene – about one quarter of the population – are endowed with impulsive tendencies that can lead to fast and decisive action or to foolish choices. The cautious majority that Tasler calls risk managers can make carefully considered decisions or become hopelessly lost in the fog of details.


Now The Impulse Factor offers listeners a unique online opportunity to analyze their own decision-making style and harness it to improve their everyday lives. With examples from business, psychology, and Tasler’s own research at TalentSmart, the book also vividly illustrates how susceptible we are to the events around us and how our reactions often run contrary to our best interests. By combining his research with real-world examples of extreme decision making, Tasler teaches listeners how to thrive when faced with difficult choices. More than just an audiobook, The Impulse Factor provides a clear understanding of why you make the choices you do – and the tools to make those decisions change your business and your life.
