Managing your Chimp

Dr Steve Peters is the best-selling author of The Chimp Paradox. As a sports psychologist, he has worked most famously with Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton (cycling), but also with Karina Bryant (judo), Ronnie O’Sullivan (snooker), Liverpool FC, England’s football team…

In this brief video he describes his view of how the brain works, and can be split into three main functions – Chimp, Human and Computer – and how the Chimp, built for survival, can often hijack our rational thoughts.

He uses examples of Hoy and Pendleton at London 2012 to put this into a high performance context.
