Daniel Gilbert Biography

Daniel Gilbert is the Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology at Harvard University. He has won numerous awards for his research and teaching. He is an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a winner of the Association for Psychological Science’s William James Award for “a lifetime of significant intellectual contributions to the basic science of psychology.”

His popular book, Stumbling on Happiness, spent 6 months on the New York Times bestseller list, has sold more than a million copies worldwide, has been translated into more than 40 languages, and was awarded the Royal Society’s General Book Prize for best science book of the year. He is the host and co-writer of the award-winning NOVA television series This Emotional Life which was seen by more than 10 million viewers in its first airing. A few years ago, he teamed up with Prudential to do a series of television commercials to help Americans overcome the psychological obstacles to retirement saving. That advertising campaign was one of the most successful in the history of the financial services industry.

He is a contributor to Time, The New York Times, and NPR's All Things Considered; he has been a guest on numerous television programs including The Today Show, The Colbert Report, and The Late Show.. Dan’s three TED talks have more than 30 million views, and his first TED talk remains one of the most popular of all time.

Speaking Topics
  • HOW TO DO PRECISELY THE RIGHT THING AT ALL POSSIBLE TIMES

    Floss daily, save for retirement, and don’t wear plaid pants before or after Labor Day. Most experts tell us what to decide but they don’t tell us how, and so the moment we face a novel decision—should I move to Cleveland or Anchorage? Marry Jennifer or Joanne? Become an architect or a pastry chef?—we’re lost. Is there any way to know how to do precisely the right thing at all possible times? In fact, there is a simple method for making decisions that most people find easy to understand and impossible to follow. New research in psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral economics explains why.

  • HAPPINESS: WHAT YOUR MOTHER DIDN’T TELL YOU

    Most of us think we know what would make us happy and that our only problem is getting it. But research in psychology, economics, and neuroscience shows that people are not very good at predicting what will make them happy, how happy it will make them, and how long that happiness will last. Is the problem that we can’t really imagine what our futures will hold? Is the problem that society lies to us about the true sources of human happiness? Yes, and yes again. Professor Gilbert will explain why, when it comes to finding happiness, we can’t always trust our imaginations—or our mothers.
