In this week's episode of All in the Mind (ABC's Radio National) looks at the ways objects and colors and other elements of our environment can shape how we feel and how we behave. Cool topic.
The hidden forces that shape our thoughts, feelings, and behaviour. What if your name could predict your future career, if your culture could influence your judgement of distance, or the physical appearance of your chess opponent could determine whether you win or lose? Everyday, as we move about the world there are many subconscious forces that massively influence our decisions - and how people relate to us.
