Special Topics in Introspection

Edwin A. Locke

Presented at: OCON 2009

Date: Jul 03, 2009

This course is a sequel to Dr. Locke’s 2008 course, “The Art of Introspection.” (The previous course is recommended but not required.) It deals with more complex psychological issues that entail introspection, including: understanding complex emotions; understanding the causes of crying at happy events (which is not always caused by a malevolent universe premise); understanding self-doubt and building self-confidence, including distinguishing self-confidence from self-esteem; protecting the integrity of one’s soul in an irrational culture; building character without falling into the trap of intrinsicism (divorcing character from life); seeking pleasure using reason; understanding what choosing to live really means (including the proper meaning of “the meaning of life” and its relationship to happiness); and committing to important values (including using the subconscious to help you implement goals).
