Tom Gilovich

Special guest

Tom Gilovich is the Irene Blecker Rosenfeld Professor of Psychology at Cornell University. Among the many phenomena he has studied, he’s especially well known for his work on the spotlight effect, the hot hand effect, the bias blind spot, and regret. Tom is also the author of several books, including the wildly popular “The Wisest One in the Room: How You Can Benefit from Social Psychology’s Most Powerful Insights” with collaborator and field luminary, Lee Ross.

Tom is the Director of The Gilovich Judgement and Belief Lab at Cornell University. The lab is broadly interested in how people mis-evaluate evidence and make faulty judgments, form dubious beliefs, and embark on counterproductive courses of action, as well as the emotional states that both influence and follow from people's judgments.
