Today we welcome back a great friend of the podcast John Bargh Professor of social psychology at Yale University
I always really enjoy my time with John and the opportunity to pick the brains of one of the most influential minds in psychology today.
John’s book ‘Before you know it’ is essential reading.
In which he goes into so many fascinating avenues to explore how our unconscious mind navigates the world.
How we are so much influenced by our surroundings.
How we can be triggered into action by other people
How words written in our office can affect our motivations.
To become better acquainted with your unconscious mind is to be better armed with the challenges of life
We look into ways that you can better arrange your world
How you can increase your motivation to do what YOU want to do with your life
Not to be just carried away with the whims and wishes of your unconscious programmes
We talk about John’s biggest influences in his long and distinguished career
The effect of lockdown on our mental well being
What the future may hold for us post covid
A really interesting session with a fascinating man
John A. Bargh is a social psychologist currently working at Yale where he has formed the Automaticity in Cognition, Motivation, and Evaluation (ACME) Laboratory. John’s work focuses on automaticity and unconscious processing as a method to better understand social behaviour as well as philosophical topics such as free will. Much of John’s work investigates whether actions and behaviours thought to be under volitional control may result from automatic interpretations of and reactions to external stimuli, such as words.
