    We are back talking about personality and states vs. traits, but Dr. Geller will expand on this and bring it into a social context. How does an old dog learn new tricks? Can we influence pro-social and cultural changes that will ultimately influence personalities? Is our current culture of independence going to sustain or must we switch to a culture of interdependence? There are so many considerations when talking about how our behavior influences others, but shouldn't we be trying to make this a better world for all (instead of just for ourselves)? - For more lessons from Dr. Geller, consider buying his 50 Lessons book at https://abatechnologies.com/product/fifty-lessons-to-enrich-your-life-proven-principles-from-psychological-science/ - For more information visit http://gellerac4p.com/ for more information.

    Nature vs. Nurture. Often, as Behavioral Scientists we focus mainly on Nurture, but it is important that we don't forget about Nature. There are many factors that go into creating who we are. Many Behavioral Scientists talk about this - Anthony Biglan & Susan Schnieder - and many others that also take environment into consideration - Eva Jablonka. So, as Behavioral Scientists, what factors should we be taking into consideration? How does the environment work in conjunction with our genetics, and vice versa? - For more lessons from Dr. Geller, consider buying his 50 Lessons book at https://abatechnologies.com/product/fifty-lessons-to-enrich-your-life-proven-principles-from-psychological-science/ - For more information visit http://gellerac4p.com/ for more information.
