Passion Struck with John R. Miles

How Your Environment Influences Who You Become EP 102

January 28, 2022

Our environment continually influences our lives, our decision-making process, and how we interact with the world around us. In psychology, there is a concept known as 'the social multiplier effect' based on the principle that high levels of one attribute or behavior amongst one's peers can have spillover effects on an individual.

In today's episode, John discusses this social multiplier effect and how your environment influences who you become.
