#150: Ten Rules of Human Behavior

#150: Ten Rules of Human Behavior

Today we are going through a list of ten general rules of human behavior that we discuss in many of our episodes either implicitly or explicitly. This is not meant to be some exhaustive, definitive, or all-encompassing list of everything that you need to know about human behavior, it’s simply meant to be used as a guideline from which you can make sense of the daily observations you make as well as better understand the behavior you personally demonstrate.  

Some of the topics we discuss include things like memory and how bad it really is, divided attention and how it affects our behavior and how all humans betray their affiliations and telegraph their intent which is what makes us so predictable!

You can find a list of the topics discussed in the order in which we discussed them below, but I would recommend pulling out a notepad and jotting them down as we go because at the end we give a great example of how you can use the information we discussed during the episode.

Please remember to follow us on social media, you can find the links in the episode details and if you enjoyed the podcast, please tell your friends about it. Thanks for tuning in and we hope you enjoy the show.
