The psychology of your future self | Culture and Story | Scoop.it
"Human beings are works in progress that mistakenly think they're finished." Dan Gilbert shares recent research on a phenomenon he calls the "end of history illusion," where we somehow imagine that the person we are right now is the person we'll be for the rest of time. Hint: that's not the case.

Some interesting speculation on the possible impacts on business by neuroscience.  A couple we are well on the way, one or two I am not sure they are going to fly the others are let's wait and see.
