Tell a stranger that you talk to yourself, and you’re likely to get written off as eccentric. But the truth is that we all have a voice in our head. In this ISR Insights talk, University of Michigan professor Ethan Kross joins Dave Mayer (Ross School of Business) to discuss Kross’ new book, Chatter. Interweaving behavioral and brain research from Kross’ lab with colorful real-world case studies, Kross explains how these conversations shape our lives, work, and relationships.

This talk is co-sponsored by Literati Bookstore, where you can purchase Kross’ new book.
