Irene Guijt pointed me to this TED talk by Daniel Kahneman who has a substantial claim to be the inventor of behaviour economics. The point which really struck me was the disconnect between experience and memory and the low impact of time on our perception. Seeing the future as anticipated memories is an interesting side idea from the talk. Now there is nothing new here (although its well presented) but its an important reminder in relationship to issues of narrative research. A few specific points that occur to me (and these go beyond the TED talk).
Interestingly in two University sessions and a conference call this morning I was reminded of another example of pattern entrainment. Those most resistant to self-interpretation appear to be traditionally trained qualitative researchers and marketing professionals. Its almost as if the training to overcome the known deficiencies of qualitative techniques acts as an inhibitor to grasping a concept that quantitative people get a lot faster.
