The videos I chose

Our future self

Dan Gilbert talks about how much people grow in ten years. Most people underestimate the changes that affects us, ans most people think that their interests will be the same 10 years from now, but that is not the case.
The question he named in the beginning of the video ,, Why do we make decisions that our future selves so often regret?'' describes the main idea about this research that he is introducing .

The thing is that in our life we make decisions and we have many opinions on what so ever but the thing is that we often think that it won't change from 10 years but the case is that when we grow older we remember who we were and what our opinions were before but they have changed in most cases.

Because we can't see in to the future we can't tell how much the changes on our personality will be but we are definitely going to change a lot from our birth till we die.
