Sway : the Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behavior by Ori Brafman( Book )

21 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A journey into the hidden psychological influences that derail our decision-making. Why is it so difficult to end a doomed relationship? Why do we listen to advice just because it came from someone "important"? Why are we more likely to fall in love when there's danger involved? Here, organizational thinker Ori Brafman and his brother, psychologist Rom Brafman, answer these questions and more. Drawing on research from the fields of social psychology, behavioral economics, and organizational behavior, Sway reveals forces that influence every aspect of our personal and business lives, including loss aversion, the diagnosis bias, and the "chameleon effect." The Brafmans not only uncover rational explanations for a wide variety of irrational behaviors, but also point readers toward ways to avoid succumbing to their pull.--From publisher description
Click : the magic of instant connections by Ori Brafman( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A psychological investigation of the forces behind what makes us click with certain people, or become fully immersed in whatever activity or situation we're involved in. These kinds of peak experiences, when our senses are completely focused on the moment, are something that individuals--and companies--strive to achieve. After all, when you're "in the zone," you're happier and more productive. Why is it that we click in certain situations and with certain people, but not with others? Is there a way to create such peak experiences, whether on a date or in your job? According to Ori and Rom Brafman, there is. Weaving together cutting-edge research in psychology and sociology, the Brafmans explore the common factors present when our brain and senses are fully engaged, and identify five "accelerators" that increase the likelihood of these kinds of magic connections in our work and relationships.--From publisher description
Succeeding when you're supposed to fail : the 6 enduring principles of high achievement by Rom Brafman( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychologists long assumed that people who face adversity--a difficult childhood, career turbulence, sudden bouts of bad luck--will succumb to their circumstances. Yet over and over, they find a significant percentage are able to overcome their life circumstances and achieve spectacular success. How is it that individuals who are not "supposed" to succeed manage to overcome the odds? Are there certain traits that such people have in common? Can the rest of us learn from their success and apply it to our own lives? Here, in a narrative that interweaves stories from education, the military, and business, and a wide range of new research, psychologist Rom Brafman identifies the six hidden drivers behind unlikely success. By understanding and incorporating these strategies in our own lives, Brafman argues, we can all be better prepared to overcome the inevitable obstacles we face.--From publisher description
