About This Class

Can you imagine a life without people?

Wherever we are, people play an extremely important part of our life. 

This course will teach you in a few easy lectures how you can use psychology to understand the people in your everyday life better. 

Learn about our personality, psychological needs, attitudes, and our psychological problems and how you can use this to understand people better.

What you will learn in this course

  • Discover what personality actually is

  • Learn how to correctly use personality to understand the people around you

  • The five personality traits we all ought to know

  • The four psychological needs that drive most of our decisions and behavior

  • The truth about attitudes and how they secretly influence our behavior

  • Understand people with psychological disorders and what can help them

In short, you will learn the essential concepts psychologists use to understand people and how to apply them in your everyday life.

One of the most enjoyable things when I studied Psychology was applying the knowledge to my everyday life together with my fellow students.

Soon we were talking in our own language: about how that guy is totally self-enhancing, how this guy is using personality wrongly, or that teacher is implicitly biased towards women without noticing it.

We realized that we were starting to understand the people around us more deeply and that made our lives a lot richer.

In this course, I want to share this experience with you in a few short lectures that get straight to the important points.

This course is about understanding the people around you in ways you couldn’t before, seeing things that you didn’t see before, and discovering the things that are really driving them.

So get started now so that you can experience it yourself.

You can start with any lecture and see for yourself what it has in store for you.

And you can ask me any psychology question you have.
