Gretchen Rubin, Author of the Happiness Project

If you’re someone interested in the psychology of money and learning more about yourself and why you do what you do when it comes to money, you’ll enjoy today’s episode. Today’s guest is author Gretchen Rubin, who started her career in law and was clerking at the Supreme Court when she realized that she really wanted to be a writer. Since then, she’s become one of the most thought-provoking and influential writers on habits and happiness of our time. She is the author of several books, including the blockbuster #1 New York Times bestseller The Happiness Project.  It is based on the year in Gretchen’s life which she spent experimenting about how to be happier.

She is out with a brand new book – Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives.

Three takeaways from our interview:

— The 4 human tendencies we all should be aware of… (And the tendency quiz you can take on Gretchen’s website that will help you learn about yourself.)

— Why degree of temptation and your personality matter when establishing new habits.

— How to know whether you’re a classic underbuyer or overbuyer.
