Daniel Karim - Behavior Newsletter

🤯Poem of the Week


“It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it.
― Benjamin Franklin

📺Video of the Week

Epictetus – Life-Changing Quotes

The RedFrost youtube channel combines the greatest thoughts of all time with dramatic music. If you are having a character-building day – I suggest that you listen to some epic quotes from Tolkien, Seneca, Churchill, or Robert Frost.

📚Book of the Week

Walden by Henry David Thoreau

Walden is a book by transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau. The text is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. The work is a part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and—to some degree—a manual for self-reliance. First published in 1854, Walden details Thoreau’s experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson. The experience later inspired Walden, in which Thoreau compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development.

💊Biohack of the Week

Nuvi Health® 5-HTP 200 Capsules 

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid that your body naturally produces.

Your body uses it to produce serotonin, a chemical messenger that sends signals between your nerve cells.

Low serotonin levels are associated with depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, weight gain, and other health problems.

Therefore, increasing your body’s production of serotonin may have various benefits.

For this reason, serotonin-producing 5-HTP supplements have become increasingly popular.

My Interview with Siemon Scamell-Katz

The 18th episode of The Psychology Podcast with Daniel Karim features the world-leading shopping psychology expert Siemon Scamell-Katz and author of the bestseller The Art of Shopping.

I reached out to Siemon Scamell-Katz shortly after I created my first product – Planniness, a journal that was designed to help people live more balanced and stressfree lives.

My team and I put a great deal of effort into the invention of this behavior technology and we were excited to get feedback from customers so that we could create an even better journal out of it, so we uploaded it to amazon and waited… and waited… and waited.

After one entire month, we had one sale, and that sale came from my mother (shout out to you mom for always believing in me x).

That month taught me something – no matter how good the product, people need to learn that it actually exists.

Being the lazy bastard that I am, I reached out to one of the foremost authorities in the field of shopping psychology in order to understand why people buy stuff.

That expert was Siemon Scamell-Katz, the author of the bestseller – The Art of shopping.

Siemon was one of the very first practitioners of shopper research, being the first in the world to conduct eye-tracking in-store, to research shopper behavior in Virtual Reality, and to conduct shopper marketing fMRI and eye-tracking studies.

This man isn’t an expert, he is a pioneer who invested decades of his life into observing us, filming us, and tracking our eye movements in order to predict when we buy.

Whether you are a producer who sells stuff or a customer who buys stuff, the information that Siemon collected is pure gold and this podcast is a must-listen.
