Social Psychologist Roy Baumeister on Identity, the Self, and the Meaning of Life

by Scott Barry Kaufman, March 29, 2017

Dr. Roy Baumeister is widely considered to be one of the most influential and cited psychologists of our time. He’s also a wonderful conversationalist, full of interesting research to share with our listeners! In this episode, we learn about how he came to study the diverse array of fascinating topics that have characterized his career. We discuss how people determine their identity, the effects of self-esteem on behavior, and how people find a sense of meaning in life. There’s a palpable sense of excitement in this episode as these two experts really “nerd out” about some of the biggest questions of the human condition. We hope you enjoy the episode as much as we enjoyed recording it! To learn more about Dr. Roy Baumeister, visit roybaumeister.com
