Question: What are you best known for?
Dan Gilbert: Well I guess … What am I best … ? This is a hard question because you’re asking me to see myself as others see me. And one of the things we know from lots of research is that’s a difficult task. My conception from Dan Gilbert is very different, I suspect, from everybody else’s conception. But what I do suspect is that people associate my name with the work on affective forecasting. My name, and of course the name of my collaborator Tim Wilson, with whom all of this work over 15 years has been done.
