Emotional Wisdom and Real Freedom of Choice | Arnie Benn | TEDxYouth@TVT

We like to believe we are already civilized, sophisticated creatures, yet our world is still so full of dysfunction. This is because our choices are not made by our intelligence but by our survival instinct and our emotion. Seeing this is essential in order to attain real freedom of choice. Arnie Benn is an author, a composer, and a teacher. He spends his time writing and teaching AP Chemistry, AP Environmental Science, and Human Behavioral Ecology at TVT Community Day School in California. He has previously worked in the entertainment and internet technology sectors, with professional experience including producing and directing film and television content, online entrepreneurship, and consulting for a 2008 U.S. Presidential campaign. He has lived on three continents, having grown up in South Africa, and he speaks three languages. Emerging from this disparate experience and exposure is the primary thrust of his message: we humans are all essentially the same, and we all, predictably, behave in similar ways in similar circumstances. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
