Becoming a Better Judge

Monday, November 7, 2016 23:24
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

University of Chicago Assistant Professor Ed O’Brien studies how accurately we appraise ourselves. For example, are we, overall, better people than we used to be? And how accurate are our specific predictions, for example, how likely we are to lose weight? O’Brien also looks at what affects our recommendations’ accuracy, for example, what movie to see? Finally, he goes beyond description and opines on how we might actually improve rather than just think we’re improving.

Pacific Standard named Ed O’Brien one of the Top 30 Thinkers Under 30.  His research has been profiled on NPR, The Atlantic, TIME, New York Times, and Wall Street Journal.  He is my Up-and-Comer interview today.

    the only way to be a good judge is to ask the prosecution if they have evidence of jurisdiction, which no prosecutor can ever proffer!
