Listen to the podcast below!



If you’ve ever wanted to be happier, more content, and more comfortable with who you are, and those around you, then do we have the personality revealing show for you!

Today I’ll be talking with Dr. Brian R. Little, researcher, author, and professor, voted the favorite professor by students at Harvard for three consecutive years! He’s also the author of a fascinating book on who in the world we are, and why we operate the way we do, Me, Myself, and Us: The Science of Personality and the Art of Well-Being.

And that’s what we’ll be talking about today, about the science of personality and the art of well-being, and how it can change our lives.

That plus we’ll talk about bathtub farts and lumberjacks, music that makes your hair stand on end, why the professor’s left shoe is an introvert, the dangers of caffeine after 3, what in the world is cyberia, what North Dakota has in spades, why you don’t want to follow the professor into the bathroom, the power of weisel words and why extroverted females, may be the most heroic of them all!
