DeAnne Smith's Questionable at Best #68 • Jeff Winer • Conflict

April 28, 2016

This week’s question: Why are you so conflicted?

This week’s quote: “That’s part of the burden of being a person.”

Okay, nerds, listen up. I talked to a 5th year clinical psychology PhD student (and improviser!) and it’s intense. Get schooled on conflict, “theory of change” (air quotes very important), cortisol, thought-action fusion, and the power of
passively drooling into tubes in a lab setting. Oh, and what Syrian refugees might be going through. Just some light listening! As Jeff says, “Psychology is awesome!”
