OUTLINE: About to react? Box that Chimp!
Box that chimp! This book is a great insight into human behaviour and for some of the stimuli that have evolved our personalities. That author leans into the theory that you can change your behaviour, you overt cations, but not your personality, your inner thoughts. He also looks at which parts of the brain causes certain primal thoughts verses those that involve educated reasoning. This book will certainly help you identify what drives your, sometimes, uncontrollable behaviour. The book helps give you a common language to discuss behaviour with others so the next time you find yourself reacting to a situation you may find yourself using the authors advice; acknowledge the chimp, then box it!
