CO2 #2 Dan Ariely on Why We Lie and How We Justify our Actions (via GoodLifeProject)

This episode features famed psychologist, behavioral-economist and bestselling author of Predictably Irrational and The Honest Truth About Dishonesty, Dan Ariely. In his late teens, a horrific accident burned 70% of his body and sent him into the hospital for three years. And it was that experience that incited a deep curiosity about how we behave in the world, how we experience and make choices about pleasure, pain and value, what we believe and the stories we tell ourselves.
This led Ariely into a stunning career as a leading behavioral economist, psychologist, acclaimed professor and bestselling author and speaker. 
Check here an extensive interview with this immense author: DanArielyEpisode
