Are our personalities set in stone or can we change them? In this bonus episode, Matthew Warren talks to former Biomedarticles Editor Christian Jarrett on his new book Be Who You Want: Unlock The Science Of Personality Change. Christian discusses the evidence-based methods you can use to transform your personality, whether you’re an introvert looking to become the life of the party or just wish you were a little more open to new experiences. He also explains how our personalities evolve over the course of our lifespan, even if we don’t consciously try to change them, and how they could be affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Be Who You Want: Unlock The Science Of Personality Change is on the road on May 18th in the US and on May 20th in the UK.
