“Core Projects”

In a witty Ted Talk, Dr. Brian Little explains how we are more than “just a bunch of traits.”  He shares how, when it comes to personality, we are often categorized along 5 main traits – openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism.  But not to worry, no matter where we fall along those traits, our “personal [or] core projects” say a lot more about who we are than those 5 traits:  for example, what things light us up, what we will fight for, what we care about, and what our personal struggles are.  Yay!  We are more than the sum of our traits!  Enjoy being you today.
