A conversation with social psychologist and author Roy Baumeister, where we discuss:
– How self-control is one the best predictors of performance in many areas of life
– How you glucose level might account for far more than you think
– The importance of “precommitments” for self control
– Why you should never have difficult conversations in the evening
– The differences between “Eastern” and “Western” styles of thinking
– How unresolved trauma may prevent us from maintaining self-control
