#265: Are you the same person you were five years ago? Ten years ago? Fifteen years ago?

Dr. Hardy is the bestselling author of Willpower Doesn’t Work and Personality Isn’t Permanent. He’s a contributor to Inc. and Psychology Today. From 2015-2018, he was the number one writer on

365: Benjamin Hardy | How to Break Free from Self-Limiting Beliefs

Read more

Benjamin Hardy (@BenjaminPHardy) is an organizational psychologist and author of Willpower Doesn't Work: Discover the Hidden Keys to Success and Personality Isn't Permanent: Break Free from Self-Limiting Beliefs and Rewrite Your Story.

What We Discuss with Benjamin Hardy:

  • Why treating the results of a "scientific" personality test like Myers & Briggs or Enneagram as gospel is akin to trusting horoscopes to safely guide your life decisions -- inaccurate and potentially dangerous.
  • Hear the story about how Benjamin and his wife almost didn't get married because a personality test indicated they weren't an ideal match.
  • What looking back at the person you were 10 or 20 years ago should reveal about personality as an unfixed, malleable quality.
  • Why categorizing yourself or accepting labels leads to a tunnel vision of mindlessness that tends to accentuate the negative qualities you believe yourself to have.
  • You're always a work in progress -- you're never "finished." The person you'll be in 10 years may well be as different as you are from the person you were 10 years ago. So who do you want the future you to be?
  • And much more...

Have you ever taken a personality assessment? You know, the Myers-Briggs, DISC, or Enneagram tests that are supposed to tell us about who we are and fit us neatly into a predetermined category?

Well, today’s guest, Dr. Benjamin Hardy, has a very different take on personality testing. In his new book, Personality Isn’t Permanent, he explores why these tests go against science and psychology, shape your identity in dangerous ways, and prevent us from living up to our true potential.

Today, Dr. Hardy joins the podcast to talk about the danger of accepting labels from others, why it’s time to do away with outdated personality tests, and how to stop living in the past and set a foundation for a hopeful future.

How To Conquer Your Limiting Beliefs...With Benjamin Hardy

Read more

There’s a part of the human dynamic we all share, which is the need to define ourselves and to create an identity.

This set of personal beliefs is what ultimately makes us who we are.

These beliefs are created as a result of all kinds of experiences we have in life…

From growing up in a small farming town to a big city.

From being raised by a single parent as an only child, or in a large family.

To being bullied in school or one of the popular kids.

And as we grow older as adults, this process doesn’t stop. It continues…

We might take a personality test that tells us we’re an introvert… Or you might use your astrological profile to justify some of your behaviors, actions, or decisions.

And while it’s critical that we do seek an identity, what’s really important to understand, is that the identity you ultimately create is not a result of what happens to you, or when or where you were born, but that it’s completely under your control.

Ultimately, your identity is nothing more than the collection of stories you’ve created about yourself and accepted as true.

And those stories are changeable.

The nerd in school can become the tech billionaire.

The single child from an abusive family can become a loving parent to many children.

A poor kid from the hood can become a celebrity business tycoon.

And an introvert can build an audience of millions of fans, and use their voice to change the world.

You can let these stories define you, or you can define the stories.


Well that’s what we’re going to talk about today with our guest, Benjamin Hardy.

Ben has spent the past few years studying personality types, identities, and the processes by which we create our personal beliefs.

These beliefs determine our expectations and our actions.

And our expectations and actions, ultimately determine the kind of life we live.

If you want to change your life, you have to start by changing the beliefs you hold about yourself.

This is one of the most important interviews you’ll ever hear, so without further ado, please help me welcome, Benjamin Hardy.
