On Monday evening, I’ll speak at Liberty on the Rocks Flatirons on “Why Personality Matters in Politics… But Not in the Way You Think.” Here’s the summary:
Do you ever worry that you’re just talking past people in your political advocacy? You might be! Happily, by understanding how your own personality differs from that of others, you can become more persuasive and effective in politics (and in life). In this interactive discussion, philosopher Diana Hsieh will explain some of the major personality differences between people, then explore how they function in political debate. She’ll show how minor shifts in emphasis or approach — not compromises on principle — can make others more receptive to your ideas.
The evening runs from 6:00pm until 9:00pm at Miller’s Bar and Grille at 103 S. Public Rd, Lafayette, Colorado 80026. If you’re local, I hope that you join us!
I’ll have some copies of my new book Responsibility & Luck: A Defense of Praise and Blame to sign and sell that evening. It’ll be first come, first serve!
