The art of misdirection

The art of misdirection | Ted Talk | Scoop.it
Hailed as the greatest pickpocket in the world, Apollo Robbins studies the quirks of human behavior as he steals your watch. In a hilarious demonstration, Robbins samples the buffet of the TEDGlobal 2013 audience, showing how the flaws in our perception make it possible to swipe a wallet and leave it on its owner’s shoulder while they remain clueless.
Davies1035's insight:

Did you like the speech?  Why, or why not?

I thought this Ted Talk was very entertaining. He was a great speaker and was able to entice his audience with such ease.

What did you learn from watching this speaker?

From this speech, I learned that sometimes you must think outside the box in order to deliver a truly unique and well-presented speech.

How will you utilize what you learned in your everyday life?

I will try to be more observant and keep perspective in mind throughout my everyday life, because he proves that we are sometimes blinded by the things right in front of us. 

Will you adopt any strategies you observed the speaker using during their speech?

I will try to adopt his tactics as a speaker for my own presentation, as I believe this was a Ted Talk that will not be easily forgotten.
