Advice Goddess Radio, Tonight, 7-8pm PT, 10-11pm ET: Dr. Sam Sommers - Understand The Power Of Context And Live, Love, Work Smarter
Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science.
Context matters, Tufts psychology professor Dr. Sam Sommers explains. What we believe, how we behave, and even how we see ourselves shifts more than we understand, depending on the situation we find ourselves in at a particular moment.
For example, contrary to popular belief, context (like whether we're standing in a crowd), and not moral character, will often determine whether people will reach out and help someone in need.
On tonight's show, Dr. Sommers will lay out how understanding the surprisingly powerful impact of context can help us combat our biases in seeing and decision-making -- in turn helping us be more effective at work, with our families, in our friendships and relationships, and out in the world.

And don't miss last week's show on how you can use the new field of adult attachment science, which is actually very simple to understand, to find love -- or to keep and even vastly improve the relationship you have.
My guest was neuroscientist Dr. Amir Levine, co-author with psychologist Rachel S.F. Heller, of Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find -- and Keep -- Love.
