Ep. 25: How Confidence Affects Our Performance & Decision-Making with Peter Atwater
Peter Atwater is a man who is fascinated by why people do what they do.
His iterative and impressive path in the financial world eventually led him to studying confidence, specifically the role confidence plays in the choices that we make and the behavioral parallels that cross politics, social action and the markets – presently and historically.
By looking at these factors, Peter has been able to predict much of what’s going on in our society today – from business, financial, political and personal perspectives.
In this Outperform podcast episode, you’ll hear Bob and Peter discuss some very interesting topics, including why Peter looks at books, music, architecture and food when researching confidence-levels and how we’re experiencing a 1960’s-esque “rhyme” today.
