Interview - David Rand
David Rand, Associate Professor of Psychology, Economics, and Management at Yale University
I'm a little behind on these things, but that's because April has been a whirlwind of interviews (not to mention it's the 'crunch time' of the semester.)
I was up at Yale earlier in the month, conducting interviews giving a talk on Familiar Shapes (more on that in my post about Nicholas Christakis).
My first interview of the day was with David Rand, currently Associate Professor of Psychology, Economics, and Management at Yale University. We had a great conversation about motivational versus classical reasoning (take-away: there is hope), how time pressures impact these reasoning processes (take-away: slow down!) and, of course, the benefits of cooperation.
