The science of reputation

Science writer John Whitfield will discuss the surprising science of reputation

Does most of your conversation involve discussing people behind their backs? Do you blush when you are embarrassed, or want to tell your 250 facebook friends about your latest win? People spend almost every waking moment managing their own reputations while trying to uncover other's true selves. Reputation is woven deeply into our biology, and is a crucial force in society. Science writer John Whitfield will discuss the surprising science of reputation.
