Why We Snap (17:48) Dr. Douglas Fields, is a neurobiologist, whose recent book, “Why We Snap: Understand The Rage Circuit In Your Brain” explains the cause for these sudden outburst of rage. According to Dr. Fields, the violent behavior is the result of the clash between our evolutionary hardwiring and triggers in our contemporary world.  Dr. Fields says that, “The sad truth is that the right trigger in the right circumstance can unleash a fit of rage in almost anyone.” and that same pathway in the brain “can also enable us to act heroically and altruistically before our conscious brain knows what we are doing.” So what is the difference between becoming a hero and become an attacker? Dr. Fields explains.  Why Good Advice Is Often Bad (1:00:27) Professor Jason Dana is an Assistant Professor of Management and Marketing at Yale University. The quest for distinguishing between “good” and “bad” advice can at times seem overwhelming.
