ntrospection is important. We are programmed to think outside of ourselves. We were never taught to look inside, to look at ourselves, to discuss things internally.

And at school we were never able to discover a deeper understanding of the self, such as whether we were audio, visual or kinesthetic people, whether we were left brain or right brain oriented or whether we are introverted or extroverted. There are so many dominant influences in our lives and there are so many elements to the self. Learn more in Episode 7 of Changing Lives.
