How to change people's mind (and your own)

Our world is getting more polarized. One potential root cause for this is how we engage in discourse with people who disagree with us. This literature review looks at common patterns of beliefs and biases and examines underlying causes. The tactics presented here will help you more easily have those tough discussions that empower you to change your mind and help you change other people’s minds.

In this review you will learn things like:

  • Why facts backfire and what you can do about it
  • What evolutionary theory says about moral reasoning and how to use Moral Foundation theory in debate
  • 19 different interventions that influence our beliefs

How to Actually Stick To and Accomplish Your Goals

Deciding on making a change in your life (a.k.a goal setting) is a great first step. Even better is putting systems in place to help you stick with your goals. Enter our MANC or Mutually Assured Non-Complacency. Simply put, it’s a system that uses the people closest in your life to assure you don’t fall into status quo ruts. It works by helping you flesh out your goals and develop accountability systems, which are the surest ways to actually achieving your goals.

 

So you think you can MANC? This worksheet is good for you if you’re thinking about:

  • Starting a new health or mindfulness habit
  • Finding a new relationship
  • Moving jobs or roles
  • Starting a hobby or class
  • Making any change in your life 🙂
