In this episode, Dustin talks with Ethan Kross about his book, Chatter: The Voice in Our Head, Why It Matters, and How to Harness It.
You'll discover how introspection can be both good and bad, why living in the present runs counter to our biology, and how our inner voice can lead to chatter precisely when we need it most.
Dr. Kross explains how working memory is connected to the inner voice and how powerful and influential our inner voice can be. He invites listeners to consider how our inner voice influences attention and sets us up for analysis paralysis. You'll discover how our inner voice influences gene expression, why it's important to zoom out or add distance, the impact of distanced self-talk and how sharing emotions with other people impacts how we feel over time.
Ethan's book is filled with exciting research and excellent tools to help us harness chatter.
