Thanks! I.'m surprised to see psychology come up as often as it has. Would you have any recommendations (books, talks, courses etc.)?


I think any updated psychology textbook will give you a good groundwork, although probably boring. Vlogbrothers on Youtube have a Crash Course on Psychology.

Some books I have read are more pop psychology as opposed to traditional (and usually more scientific) psychology, but I would still recommend them. Some are even in the self-help area, but were useful to me:

  • Man's Search for Meaning, Viktor Frankl
  • Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell
  • The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People, Stephen Covey
  • Flow, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (on my to read)
  • Freakonomics, Steven Levitt and Stephen Lubner (not really psychology, but an interesting book that I recently read)
