Welcome to The Mental Breakdown and Psychreg Podcast! Today, Dr. Berney kicks off your week-long introduction to five major personality continua, including:
Freedom (people are free to choose and are responsible for their own choices) vs. Determinism (external forces and unconscious drives control people’s behavior)
Rationality (people make decision logically and try to understand the world) vs. Irrationality (people are driven by their emotions and other irrational influences)
Proactivity (changes occurs from within) vs. Reactivity (external forces, including reward and punishment, change behavior)
Homeostasis (people seek balance and the status quo) vs. Heterostasis (people are motivated t change and grow)
Changeability (people are constantly changing and growing) vs. Unchangeability (people do not have the capacity for fundamental change)
Welcome to The Mental Breakdown and Psychreg Podcast! Today we review an article from Psychology Today that teaches us that if we better understand our anger – and what we are angry about – we will better control how we respond to our anger.
