Ep. 087 – ‘We’ as in ‘you’ – how pronouns make you look

While doing research for some of the latest and greatest we found an interesting bit on profiling people by the pronouns they use.  It fascinated us so much we invited Dr. James Pennebaker on the show for this fun and insightful podcast. Nov 14, 2016

Show Notes

Image result for dr. james pennebakerAuthor, teacher, researcher and psychologist - Dr. Pennebaker is one interesting man.  He has not only performed some fascinating research but he also built tools around his research and then released them free to the world.  You can even try one out at his site: http://www.receptiviti.ai/

In this podcast we have a chance to ask the Doc things like:

  • Can we really learn to profile people based on how they use pronouns?
  • Are tools needed or can a human learn it?
  • Is it good or bad to use the word "we" a lot?
  • Will you really listen to Bruce Hornsby?
  • And so much more...


Join us for this fun, entertaining and really educational podcast.

Dr. Pennebaker recommends a couple books for us:
