Nathalie Nahai – Web Psychologist – PART 1/2 | London Real

HUMANISE THE WEB – Conference with Nathalie Nahai
20% OFF tickets:

Nathalie Nahai is a Web Psychologist.

Recently a photograph collection circulated called ‘The Death of Conversation’. It was a series of black and whites taken of unknowing members of the public who, in social situations, had abandoned conversation in favour of looking at their mobile phones. It went viral and ended up featured in TIME magazine and the New York Times. The most fascinating thing about the photographs is that they show an outsiders perspective of a habit that we all participate in. On many an occasion we opt for the spikes of thrill we can find on opening social media notifications, receiving likes or being retweeted.

Social media access follows us around now with our mobile phones, but it’s no accident that we experience psychological reward using these apps. Nathalie Nahai is a web psychologist. An expert exploring just how the design of the web manipulates and heightens our sense of reward. Her book, Webs of Influence, explores just how technology is strategically created with us in mind – to make us click.

Want to know why you can’t resist clicking on an article or why you need to check on your notifications regularly? Then you’ll love today’s episode. If you want to master some control over the mini-dopamine rush sought with every click, best understand just how it all works. –

  • I don't get this thing about clicking at the end of the video to continue watching the video. You can't click on the screen on a cell phone.

  • I love the movie "Her." This is a great interview… informative and interesting. 

  • 17:05 They have been collecting peoples eating habits out here in the US via grocery discount cards. Soon they will integrate that data base with Obamacare and you health insurance. If you buy unhealthy food or alcohol your rates will go up.

  • Made me a lot more concious of my digital footprint.  Good tip about the free apps.

  • I can definitely notice positive changes in your mentality after you came back from mr. Pena! Keep up the great work!

  • I love Nathalie and unfortunatey I missed her here in Lisbon in 2012, but this was even better! 😉 Great insights! And keep on with the great job Brian! See you next sunday! ,)

  • Lets just be real here….she's really cute!!!

  • Interesting episode. Could have gone a bit more into detail, but I think that's what the book is about.I have just realised that the episode on the LondonReal site are a bit longer that the ones on youtube – quite nice.

  • i see dat were smooth talk real 😉

  • This guy is honestly the best interviewer I have ever watched. All big media outlets should take note.

  • Best podcast around by miles. Best interviewer around by a long long way. Doesn't interrupt, or only when necessary, very thoughtful powerful guests. Quality podcast all round.

  • Very interesting episode. Articulate, intelligent and beautiful. You don't usually find all three of those in one women. I will be buying her book.  

  • Great talk…Next ultimat guest: Eben Pagan:)

  • Love your interviews except for you constantly f'ing with that damn microphone.  Set up something more professional!

  • I find it so hard to concentrate. Her eyes are so distracting as in some sort of memorising way.  Haven't seen any of her vids or have known of her til now but I think she's sexy 😀 .  I would've leaped the desk and had my way with her lol.

    I find psychology interesting on more of a surface level to the outside but deeper when  internalising my own psyche.  I know this a little outside cyber psychology but do you think a person with Narcissistic Personality Disorder who lacks empathy learn empathy?

  • Really intriguing stuff, will be definitely following her discoveries in the future. Awesome interview cheers +Nathalie Nahai  Brian Rose

  • I juts need to say, as I thought it was obvious but the Street Art is implying that Aliens have us tricked into believing in a GOD, as potentially they have created us.

  • Good shit! I enjoyed this video alot. Enjoy your work sir.
