Excellent video of Daniel Kahneman

This is a great, great video. Kahneman discusses various puzzles and research findings on the subject of happiness (or, as he puts it "well-being"), including lots of counterintuitive gems. Be warned, though, the video is an hour long.

Here's a quote:
Nothing in life matters quite as much as it you think it does while you are thinking about it....When people are making life decisions, they are very likely basing their decisions on a mistaken view of the importance (to their actual welfare) of what they're deciding on.
