    Your Favourite TED Talks

    I'm assuming a lot of you already watch the occasional TED talk here and there, and if you don't then enjoy your time in this thread because there are some incredibly awe-inspiring and informative talks on the TED database.

    I've watched quite a number of them, but I'll start with the most recent one I've watched that I found interesting:

    This a talk I think a lot of people on BoS should watch because you guys need the messages that come from this. The speaker is the Associate Professor of Business Administration in the Negotiation, Organizations & Markets Unit at Harvard Business School (and she's a very well respected social psychologist generally) so she's got some incredible qualifications to be giving this talk.

    Thanks for creating this thread! Probably one of my favourites!

    As I have an interest in science, I thought I'd include this one of how the composition of the microbes in your gut can determine which diseases you get. This has been implicated in things such as autism, obesity and even behavioural and personality traits which is really cool! So eat your fibre guys!
