Emotional intelligence, performance and leadership expert, Bill Benjamin explores the science behind individuals' learning habits. Exploring the inner workings of the human brain, the speaker focuses on emotional memory and our instincts for human survival.
Our emotions often take control our behavioural instincts, often getting in the way of our intelligence and rational thought. Benjamin takes a deeper look at the human mind, describing how emotion can get in the way of memory. When one is unable to reference their memories, they fail to think clearly.
Giving the example of a common spousal argument, Bill Benjamin explains how things may be said as a result of emotions but then taken back after the situation has passed and rational thought has kicked in.
