The Big Picture (15:30) Christine Whelan, Ph.D., is a clinical professor in the School of Human Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is the author of the Book “The Big Picture: A guide to finding your purpose in life.” More than 86% of young adults say that making decisions in line with their purpose is what makes them an adult. But only 43% say they have a clear picture of what they want in life. How can millennials coming into their adulthood find their purpose and find a path that fulfills that purpose? Dr. Whelan explains. Why Some People are Jerks (58:32) Dave Rand, Ph.D., is an associate professor of Psychology, Economics, and Management at Yale University, he is also a member of the Yale Institute for Network Science, Institution for Social and Policy Studies, and Cognitive Sciences Program, and the director of Yale University’s Human Cooperation Laboratory. A study at Yale University by Dave Rand and Adam Bear answers the question ‘why some people are jerks, yet others are nice even to strangers’. Dr. Rand explains.
