Authority Benjamin Hardy makes the case that Personality Isn’t Permanent in his latest book. “At some point, we “settle down.” We stop engaging in new roles and new situations that bring out new and different sides of us. Because people’s lives become highly routine, both in their social roles and their environments, you begin to see very predictable behaviors and attitudes. This is one of the core reasons that personality is viewed as stable and predictable over time. It’s not that your personality itself becomes stable but rather that your routine environments and social roles lock you into habitual patterns.”
Lesson: If you want to change who you are, change your environment and friends. This is one of the reasons I love a digital nomad lifestyle. I call it a digital nomad reinvention every time my family arrives in a new city.
