Self control: Dan Ariely at TEDxDuke

 by  Nick Tseng

Dan Ariely is a well known and published MIT and Duke professor of psychology and behavioral economics. You may have seem him on the internet - his TED Talk presentations on these subjects have been watched over 7.8 million times! 

Watch his mind-opening 2011 TED Talk on self control, reward substitution, and pre-commitment, in the video below.

On top of his impressive TED Talks, Ariely also has a notable academic and education career, including a PhD in cognitive psychology and ten years experience teaching behavioral economics at MIT. His work is carefully studied here at Kitchen Safe, and it has helped shape our current and future products. 

His TED Talks are as funny and engaging as they are brilliant - give this one a play and learn how your brain makes decisions when it comes to self control.

    Hello! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you
    know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.

    If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!

    Hey there Kitchen safe folk,

    I love your product – I wanted to know though, if you have any plans on producing kSafe bases that are constructed of different materials, namely metal or sturdier plastics. I’m sure there are other customers who would be interested in a more durable option for those triple-overtime willpower battles ;)

    Thank you, and keep up the great work!

    ƅetween superЬ usability and visuaⅼ appearance. I must saу that you’ve done a excellent job with this.
