According to TED.com: “What makes you, you? Psychologists like to talk about our traits, or defined characteristics that make us who we are. But Brian Little is more interested in moments when we transcend those traits — sometimes because our culture demands it of us, and sometimes because we demand it of ourselves. Join Little as he dissects the surprising differences between introverts and extroverts and explains why your personality may be more malleable than you think.”
“Brian Little is an unapologetic introvert — but in front of a classroom or a lecture hall, he delivers impassioned and witty explorations of contemporary personality psychology. In Little’s view, we are as driven by spontaneous, “out of character” moments (and the projects we are passionate about) as we are by innate and learned traits.”
“Little’s book Me, Myself and Us not only beautifully outlines Little’s personality theories, but also imparts potentially life-changing advice for readers, while it warns of the hidden costs of hiding your true personality.”

For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery from www.ted.com: “TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize”
