Knowledge@Wharton's Katherine Milkman talks with Don Moore about his book, Perfectly Confident

Confidence is Don Moore’s self-professed “singular obsession.” A management professor at the Haas School of Business at University of California, Berkeley, Moore specialises in the psychology of decision-making, and is preoccupied with over-confidence. Why do people sometimes think they’re more talented, or more successful than they actually are? Why do they think they’re better than other people? Why are they so adamantly sure they’re right? Listen to Katherine and Don’s conversation in this podcast and read the transcript here.
