Psychology Today: Introversion is not the opposite of extroversion, part 2

on June 1, 2020 in Models, Nonjudgment, psychologytoday

I posted the next part of one of my favorite posts, following yesterday’s, Introversion is not the opposite of extroversion. I call it part 3 there because I had to break part 1 into two parts to meet length requirements. Enjoy! If you believe you have to be either introverted or extroverted—as I did—this series of posts may revolutionize your life.

Psychology Today: Introversion Is Not the Opposite of Extroversion

I’ve meant to post one of my favorite posts, Introversion is not the opposite of extroversion, part 1, to my column at Psychology Today. At last I did. I love the post and what it brings people. I posted it here in 2013, the better part of a decade ago. If you haven’t read it, I recommend it at Psychology Today or on this blog. I’ll post part 2 there[…] Keep reading →

How Bill Gates and the 1% can help the environment

on May 10, 2020 in Leadership, Nature, psychologytoday

I posted the following to my Psychology Today blog: An article today, Bill Gates Thinks That The 1% Should Foot The Bill To Combat Climate Change, said, “Bill Gates believes that private investors should foot the bill for increased spending on technologies to fight global climate change. He has pledged to commit $2 billion himself.” Does something strike you as disingenuous? Don’t Gates’s yachts, jets, and mansions burn through fossil[…] Keep reading →

The project I assigned myself following up my posts on white men

on February 22, 2020 in Awareness, Models, Nonjudgment, Perception, psychologytoday

Yesterday’s post Update on automatic thoughts people connect with straight white men culminated with a couple questions I found intriguing: Imagine if your entire life, every time you said you suffered, people said, “actually that’s an example of you causing others to suffer.” How would that affect your life? and: Imagine every time you said you worked hard at something, people said, “actually that’s an example of how easy your[…] Keep reading →

Update on automatic thoughts people connect with straight white men

on February 21, 2020 in Awareness, Models, Nonjudgment, Perception, psychologytoday

Last month I asked “What automatic thoughts come to you when you think of straight white men?“. I also explored the topic with Psychology Today‘s Editor-at-Large, Hara Estroff Marano, in an audio recording for a piece there, White Men and Preconceived Notions. Some updates. . . First, context. However obvious, I’ll still say that the following is a personal account with all the biases of someone just talking to the[…] Keep reading →

Psychology Today: White Men and Preconceived Notions

on February 17, 2020 in Audio, Awareness, Models, Nonjudgment, Perception, psychologytoday

Psychology Today’s Editor at Large, Hara Estroff Marano, and I continue our conversations on challenging topics. Today we continue with white men and preconceived notions of us. We were talking about topics before hitting record, I started to describe the pattern that comes up a few minutes into this recording, she lit up in the way someone who has thought about something and has something to say about it does,[…] Keep reading →

Sexism in magazine covers?

on February 7, 2020 in psychologytoday, Visualization

People call for diversity and equality but where is the call for more men on the covers of Vogue or Elle? I don’t see one. Am I missing the call for equality? I hear it for representation on corporate boards, university departments, and STEM fields, but with these covers the ratio is 100:0. Vanity Fair looks egalitarian with a few token men. Are we not worth picturing? You could say[…] Keep reading →
