Guest: Tasha Eurich, PhD, Organizational Psychologist, Researcher and Author of “Insight” “Know thyself” is the ancient Greek adage, and from the looks of our modern social media behavior, we’re doing pretty well at it. We take selfies, make Instagram journals, and sometimes post vulnerable insights from therapy on our Facebook feeds. Being in-touch with oneself has become a point of social pride. But organizational psychologist and best-selling author Tasha Eurich says we’re not nearly as self-aware as we think. All our navel-gazing doesn’t tell us anything about how other people see us. And without that kind of self-awareness, we’re pretty much just stumbling around in the dark.
