Episode 16: Why Personality Isn't Permanent With Dr. Benjamin Hardy
Jun 18 2020 45 mins  
Episode 16 of the Digital Introverts podcast features Dr. Benjamin Hardy. He is an organizational psychologist and bestselling author of Willpower Doesn’t Work. His blogs have been read by over 100 million people and are featured on Forbes, Fortune, CNBC, Cheddar, Big Think, and many others. He is a regular contributor to Inc. and Psychology Today, and from 2015-2018, he was the #1 writer, in the world, on Medium.com. He and his wife Lauren adopted three children through the foster system in February of 2018 and, one month later, Lauren became pregnant with twins, who were born in December of 2018. They live in Orlando. Dr. Hardy’s new book, Personality Isn’t Permanent, debunks the pervasive myths of personality that have captured pop culture. For example, personality tests like Myers-Briggs and the Enneagram are not only psychologically destructive but are no more scientific than horoscopes. Personality Isn’t Permanent provides science-based strategies for reframing past memories, becoming the scribe of your identity narrative, upgrading your subconscious, and redesigning your environment. When you know the truth of personality, desired personal change can be dramatic and directed. When you don’t, personality is something you seek to discover rather than create.
