EP 1034B – Chatter: The Voice in Our Head, Why It Matters and How to Harness It

Show: (March 9, 2021)

Tell a stranger that you talk to yourself, and you’re likely to get written off as eccentric. But the truth is that we all have a voice in our head that powerfully influences how we live our lives. In this time of instability and skyrocketing anxiety, it’s more important than ever to know how to manage this voice to rein in our worrying so it's helpful but not debilitating.

In his profound and practical book, CHATTER: The Voice in Our Head, Why It Matters, and How to Harness It, acclaimed psychologist Ethan Kross, one of the world’s leading experts on controlling the conscious mindexplores the silent conversations we have with ourselves and how we can move from anxiety to confidence by harnessing our inner voice.

Interweaving groundbreaking behavioral and brain research from his own lab with real-world case studies—from a pitcher who forgets how to pitch to a Harvard undergrad negotiating her double life as a spy—Kross explains why our attempts to control the conversations we have with ourselves succeed or fail and how these inner monologues can shape our lives, work, and relationships. He warns that giving in to negative and disorienting self-talk—what he calls “chatter”—can tank our health, sink our moods, strain our social connections, and cause us to fold under pressure.
