Robert L. Trivers is Professor of Anthropology and Biological Sciences and is one of the world's most influential evolutionary biologists of this era. He has made pioneering and profound contributions to our understanding of the evolutionary roots of social behavior.

In this TEDxJamaica talk Robert Trivers describes the capacity, role and function of deceit and self deception in humans.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxJamaica, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxJamaica event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized
