When I was a psychology student, I was often baffled by the things I learned.
“How can this not be common knowledge?” I thought.
Many of the lessons seemed crazy to me but it is hard to argue with decades of rigorous research.
In this course, I want to share psychology insights that completely changed the way I look at the world.
So go ahead and find out how your mind really works.
Once you enroll you can start with any lecture and see for yourself what it has in store for you.
And you can ask me any question you have about the human mind.

Emotions can make our live really messy. But how? And why?
How do we see ourselves? Why do most people have an unrealistic image of themselves?
