Scott Barry Kaufman on What Introversion Really Is…

Today I have arguably the most controversial guest I’ve had on the show (don’t worry it’s no one political!) I say controversial because of his take on introversion. And it’s not just any old take on introversion.

Today’s guest is a lot more qualified than I am or many other professional online introverts are to talk about this stuff: Scott Barry Kaufman is is a psychologist at Columbia University exploring the depths of human potential (see research). He embraces a humanistic, integrative approach to help all kinds of minds live a creative, fulfilling, and meaningful life.

Now I don’t want to give you too many more spoilers for todays show, I just want you to dive in and listen – hopefully with an open mind – and if you’re anything like me you’ll have a LOT to think about after hearing this.
