How to Tell the Truth Like a Liar

Recording: How to Tell the Truth Like a Liar, Mar 12, 2018


Jason Schlossberg

This is because our brains can’t differentiate between what is true and what feels true – and it's wreaking havoc on our most basic institutions. As marketers, is the lesson that we should lie to achieve our goals? This session will present a more optimistic view: let’s use behavioral science to learn to tell the truth like a liar.
