November 2, 2018

You’re probably not what you think you are. In the episode The Personality Myth of the Invisibilia Podcast, marshmallow-test-professor Walter Mischel notes that we as humans are “fundamentally flexible”.

The core of his work is “showing the potential for human beings to not be the victims of their biographies – not their biological biographies, not their social biographies – and to show, in great detail, the many ways in which people can change what they become and how they think.” (42:35)
