Behavior Weekly #2

Daniel Karim - Behavior Newsletter

Hey Behavior Architect,

Below you will find the „Behavior Weekly,“ a list of recent educational discoveries that helped me to upgrade my life in a significant manner.

Enjoy.

🤯Quote of the Week

“To be a man is, precisely, to be responsible. It is to feel shame at the sight of what seems to be unmerited misery. It is to take pride in a victory won by one’s comrades. It is to feel, when setting one’s stone, that one is contributing to the building of the world.”― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

📺Videos of the Week

 

Maps of Meaning Lecture series – The Architecture of Belief by Dr. Jordan B. Peterson

What is belief? Why is it so important to people? Why will they fight to protect it?
Dr. Peterson proposes in this lecture series that belief unites a culture’s expectations and desires with the actions of its people, and that the match between those two allows for cooperative action and maintains emotional stability. Peterson suggests that culture has a deep narrative structure, presenting the world as a forum for action, with characters representing the individual, the known, and the unknown — or the individual, culture and nature — or the individual, order and chaos.

📚Book of the Week

 

The People Of The Lie: Hope for Healing Human Evil by Scott Peck

This is the second bestselling book by Dr M. Scott Peck. In this gripping psychology book, the leading psychiatrist describes his encounters during psychiatric therapy with patients who are not merely ill but manifestly evil – People of the Lie. This brilliant, disturbing book forces us to confront the darker side of our natures and to recognize that without spiritual and religious dimension, modern psychiatry cannot claim to understand human nature or behavior.

My Interview with Nir Eyal

The 16th episode of the Psychology Podcast with Daniel Karim features the world-famous behavior designer Nir Eyal, author of the international bestselling book Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life.

As a behavior architect, it’s my goal to help as many individuals as possible to change their behavior and architect a meaningful life around them.

But how does one help people at scale?

This was the question that I asked myself before I ordered Nir Eyal’s cult classic Hooked.

In Hooked, he deconstructs some of the most addictive products of all time and provides entrepreneurs with a simple system to create habit-forming products themselves.

Nir is one of the most famous guests I had on my podcast so far, learning personally from one of the world-leading authorities in behaviorism has been a dream come true for me.

🧠Exercise of the Week

Ideal Future Blueprinting Technique

One of the reasons why so many people are feeling unsatisfied with their life is because they haven’t put up the effort to answer the question: What do I really want?

In this exercise, you will create an ideal future blueprint for the next six months, three years, and five years of your life.

That’s it, folks!
