What is Personality
Monday, March 04, 2019
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
To live effective and satisfying lives we need to understand ourselves and those with whom we interact. Unfortunately, we don’t come with a manual that explains how or why we behave as we do. This brief course examines some of the recent research into the nature of personality and the characteristics that contribute to the differences in how people think, feel and behave.

Do you perceive the world as it is?
Monday, March 18, 2019
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
We tend to assume that our senses reflect the world as it actually is. However, our senses sample only a small portion
of our environment, take many shortcuts, and our brain fills in details to give us the illusion that we perceive reality objectively. This brief course will focus on our visual system and its limitations.
