Earning Your Own Trust: The Psychology of Honesty by Gena Gorlin

Ayn Rand Institute Live!

This talk discusses the meaning and importance of being honest, especially with oneself—why it matters, why it can be hard and how to make it habit. Dr. Gorlin offers tools for introspecting the difference between reason and rationalizing, for staying selfishly committed to facts even when it hurts, and for correcting habits to the contrary. The talk draws on research and clinical experience, further clarified by Ayn Rand's insights on the choice to focus. Recorded live at OCON on June 25, 2019.
