Earning Your Own Trust: The Psychology of Honesty

Gena Gorlin

Presented at: Earning Your Own Trust: The Psychology of Honesty ARC-UK 2019

Date: Oct 04, 2019

This talk discusses the meaning and importance of being honest, especially with oneself—why it matters, why it can be hard and how to make it a habit. Dr. Gorlin offers tools for introspecting the difference between reason and rationalizing, for staying selfishly committed to facts even when it hurts, and for correcting habits to the contrary. The talk draws on research and clinical experience, further clarified by Ayn Rand’s insights on the choice to focus.
