Being Human

Every week our panel of Shrinks breaks down trending topics of psychology in the news that we call Being Human.

If you could travel back in time, what advice would you give to your younger self? Yet despite the popularity of this thought experiment, no one has, until now, actually studied what people would tell themselves.

According to findings in The Journal of Social Psychology, people’s advice to their younger selves is overwhelmingly focused on prior relationships, educational opportunities, and personal worth, echoing similar results derived from research into people’s most common regrets in life.

Our panel of Shrinks breaks down their thoughts on these findings.

  1. I’m an aspiring psychologist in year 11, from NSW Australia. I am glad to have found this podcast- I’ll make sure to keep up to date with the episodes! If it’s psychology, I’m into it.
    I’ve read all the books and listen to all the relevant figures like Jordan B Peterson.
    Just thought I’d share my interest!


  2. I as well as my friends were actually looking through the good recommendations from your web site and
    so immediately came up with a horrible feeling I had not thanked the blog owner for those tips.

    Most of the men were definitely certainly warmed to read them and have now in fact been using those things.
    I appreciate you for turning out to be really
    considerate and also for pick out this sort of exceptional tips most people are really desperate to
    learn about. Our own sincere apologies for not expressing appreciation to you earlier.

  3. Hello, you used to write magnificent, but the last few posts have been kinda boring?
    I miss your super writings. Past few posts are just a bit out of track!
    come on!

  4. I have read some excellent stuff here. Certainly price
    bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how so much effort you
    place to make such a wonderful informative site.
