EP188 Being the Person Your Dog Thinks You Are with Jim Davies

As Director of the Science of Imagination Laboratory, Jim Davies explores the processes of imagination in humans and machines, specializing in artificial intelligence, analogy,and problem-solving, as well as the psychology of art, religion, and creativity. Today he joins the show to share how you can optimize your mind and behavior by focusing on your productivity, happiness, and morality.

Listen in as Jim explains how you can make a positive impact on the world and why being a better person doesn’t necessarily have to do with how you treat the people around you day-to-day. You will learn how to measure the amount of good you are doing, how to make the most of your time, and the best charities to donate to.

“I’m not saying that it’s wrong to be nice to the people around you, but it’s a matter of the size of the impact.” – Jim Davies
