Conquering Virtual Mind Blocks
Overcoming our hidden mental barriers to better decision-making

As a mentalist, Steve Haffner knows a thing or two about the secret workings of the human brain.

In this insightful and entertaining presentation, he shares how and why the subconscious “lizard brain” acts irrationally to keep us from making decisions that align with our personal and professional goals and values.

Learn the answers to these questions:

  • When are our actions more likely to be driven by our primitive impulse for speed over accuracy?
  • What hard-wired leanings cause us to make decisions that go against our own welfare?
  • How do cognitive biases cause us to make errors in our decision-making process?

Throughout the talk, Steve wows the audience with captivating mental and visual magic routines to highlight various concepts.
