Who are you, really? The puzzle of personality | Brian Little

What makes you, you? Psychologists like to talk about our traits, or defined characteristics that make us who we are. But Brian Little is more interested in moments when we transcend those traits — sometimes because our culture demands it of us, and sometimes because we demand it of ourselves. Join Little as he dissects the surprising differences between introverts and extroverts and explains why your personality may be more malleable than you think.

Brian Little "“LOS INTROVERTIDOS VAN A CAMBIAR EL MUNDO [1]" en Congreso Futuro 2019

El profesor de investigación de Cambridge, Brian Little, analiza y redefine los hilos de nuestras personalidades, y sugiere formas de transformarnos. En una genial Charla magistral se presenta en el #CONGRESOFUTURO 2019, donde explicó que la personalidad es un rasgo cambiante, y que podemos clasificar la nuestra en varios tipos. Incluso hay una que es la que consigue más sexo.

Brian Little “LOS INTROVERTIDOS VAN A CAMBIAR EL MUNDO [2] en Congreso Futuro 2019

“Todos nos parecemos a alguien más, pero ninguno es igual a otro”. Esta premisa es la piedra angular de su trabajo de investigación que luego de años le permitió categorizar cinco tipos de personalidades: abiertos o cerrados a la experiencia, conscientes o indiferentes, extrovertidos o introvertidos, amigables o menos amigables y finalmente los neuróticos. Sin embargo, el científico considera que estas categorías son insuficientes para describir a las personas y determinar nuestros vínculos con otros. Para el profesor, es la mezcla entre rasgos de la personalidad y las situaciones de vida que enfrentan las personas lo que influencia lo que somos como humanos.


Brian Little es un introvertido que no se disculpa, pero frente a un aula o una sala de conferencias, ofrece exploraciones apasionadas e ingeniosas de la psicología de la personalidad contemporánea. En opinión de Little, estamos tan motivados por los momentos espontáneos fuera del personaje (y los proyectos que nos apasionan) como por los rasgos innatos y aprendidos.

En sus presentaciones, que son profundamente informativas y escandalosamente divertidas, el Dr. Little ayuda a su público a aprender cómo hacer un uso efectivo de estas diferencias de personalidad. Un cruce entre Robin Williams y Einstein es cómo un cliente lo describió.

Discover the Red Thread in Brian Little's TED Talk, "Who Are You Really?" - EP005

This week, Tamsen Webster finds the Red Thread in a TED talk by Brian Little: “Who Are You Really? The Puzzle of Personality.” The presence of the Red Thread is often the difference between a good talk and a great one.

Watch the video for yourself first, and see if you can pick out the first four elements: the goal, the problem, the idea, and the change. Little doesn’t get into step five, the action, but that’s because he’s so focused on laying out a compelling case for a big idea and a surprising path to change.

See if you can pick out the elements for yourself, and then you can compare how Tamsen breaks it down to learn how to make the Red Thread work for you.

How does the Rorschach inkblot test work? - Damion Searls

What are the origins of the Rorschach test and how does it work? Explore the inkblot tool psychologists use to test a subject’s perceptions and mental health.

--

For nearly a century, ten inkblots have been used as an almost mystical personality test. Long kept confidential for psychologists and their patients, the mysterious images were said to draw out the workings of a person’s mind. But what can inkblots really tell us, and how does this test work? Damion Searls details how the Rorschach Test can help us understand the patterns of our perceptions.

Do you really know why you do what you do? | Petter Johansson

Experimental psychologist Petter Johansson researches choice blindness -- a phenomenon where we convince ourselves that we're getting what we want, even when we're not. In an eye-opening talk, he shares experiments (designed in collaboration with magicians!) that aim to answer the question: Why do we do what we do? The findings have big implications for the nature of self-knowledge and how we react in the face of manipulation. You may not know yourself as well as you think you do.

Brian Little Presents Me, Myself and Us

YOW! 2016 Dr. Brian Little - Personalities at Work #YOW

Why did the normally shy and reticent member of my team do what he did last Thursday? Why did my short-tempered, brutish CEO rise to that occasion with such warmth and largesse? For the last ten months, people have been asking me if I am myself. Who else could I possibly be? Such questions are intriguing and consequential for understanding ourselves and our organizations.

This presentation provides guidance for answering them based on Dr. Little’s work on free traits, personal projects and wellbeing. A central tenet of this perspective is that people often act out of character in order to advance their personal projects. Such behaviour may puzzle us, and we wonder what is going on. What is going on is both complex and deeply human. Audiences come away with some very practical examples of how they drive each other to distraction and with a clearer understanding of why it is essential to their organizations that they continue to do so.

The presentation merges psychological insights with an exceptionally motivating message about respect for differences between individuals. Dr. Little’s presentations have been described by highly diverse groups as ‘utterly hilarious’ and ‘profoundly moving,’ suggesting he is a ‘cross between Robin Williams and Einstein.’

Dr. Brian Little is an internationally acclaimed scholar and speaker in the field of personality and motivational psychology. His pioneering research on how everyday personal projects and ‘free traits’ influence the course of our lives has become an important way of explaining and enhancing human flourishing.

Brian received his early education in British Columbia and his PhD in Psychology from the University of California at Berkeley. Currently dividing his time between Canada and the UK, Dr. Little teaches at the University of Cambridge in the Department of Psychology and Judge Business School, and is a fellow of the Well-Being Institute. In 2015, he was also a Senior Fellow at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania and is Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.

Previously, Professor Little has taught at Oxford, Harvard and McGill Universities. His course on personality in Harvard’s Department of Psychology was immensely popular: the graduating classes of Harvard elected him as a ‘Favorite Professor’ for three consecutive years.

In his presentations, Dr. Little helps organizations and professionals understand the profound effect that personality has on performance, and how to use this knowledge to their advantage.

Brian’s unique approach to the science of personality is the focus of his book, Me, Myself and Us which was published in October 2014 by Public Affairs Books in the USA and HarperCollins in Canada and is being translated into multiple languages.

Why The Science of Trait Psychology May Just Predict Everything In Your Life w Dr. Brian R. Little

JOIN OUR EMAIL LIST:

In this episode we go deep on the science of personality. We look at how we’ve moved way beyond the debate of nature vs nurture, we look at the “Myth of Authenticity and the danger of “just being yourself,” we examine why human wellbeing (aka success) depends on the sustainable pursuit of core projects in our lives, explore the complex dance of self improvement between the limitation of biological, social factors and the identity of individuals, and look at how much agency and control we really have in shaping our personalities and lives among all of these different factors with our guest Dr. Brian Little.

Can you really tell if a kid is lying? | Kang Lee

Are children poor liars? Do you think you can easily detect their lies? Developmental researcher Kang Lee studies what happens physiologically to children when they lie. They do it a lot, starting as young as two years old, and they're actually really good at it. Lee explains why we should celebrate when kids start to lie and presents new lie-detection technology that could someday reveal our hidden emotions.

Four billion years of evolution in six minutes | Prosanta Chakrabarty

Did humans evolve from monkeys or from fish? In this enlightening talk, ichthyologist and TED Fellow Prosanta Chakrabarty dispels some hardwired myths about evolution, encouraging us to remember that we're a small part of a complex, four-billion-year process -- and not the end of the line. We're not the goal of evolution, Chakrabarty says. Think of us all as young leaves on this ancient and gigantic tree of life -- connected by invisible branches not just to each other, but to our extinct relatives and our evolutionary ancestors.

You aren't at the mercy of your emotions -- your brain creates them | Lisa Feldman Barrett

Can you look at someone's face and know what they're feeling? Does everyone experience happiness, sadness and anxiety the same way? What are emotions anyway? For the past 25 years, psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett has mapped facial expressions, scanned brains and analyzed hundreds of physiology studies to understand what emotions really are. She shares the results of her exhaustive research -- and explains how we may have more control over our emotions than we think.
