I once read a book called the Psychology of Everyday Things and fell in love with the concept of engineering design from a person-centered perspective.
Is this a part of what I/O psychologists do?
Just wanted to share fantastic leadership book my executive coach just released. It’s great! Clear, concise and an easy read. And no I don’t anything for recommending it, it’s genuine! (The e-reader version is only $0.99) Spark Brilliance: How the Science of Positive Psychology Will Ignite, Engage, and Transform Your Team https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09SNLCW7Q/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_F3M21RCQ9KTGGQDMRVA7
Best books to read when starting your own business, but also embody imposter syndrome & validation issues. Anything from self-help, psychology & business is welcome. TY x
Books on human psychology that have affected you. I'll start: influence, sales Bible, on killing.
Anyone else read or hear about this book?
I’m seeing lots of posts about really bad losses. If you trade you’re going to lose money - hopefully not all the time, but many positions will be mistakes. But you need a process to find ideas and manage positions. Two books you should read are “The New Trading for a Livinng” and “The Laws of Trading.” Both look at psychology, process, and risk in different ways that can help you work out your own process. The next 18 months will be much harder than the last 18 - time to start learning.
What books would you recommend for understanding human psychology / personalities? In a people oriented industry like consulting, I imagine it really helps understanding human behavior and building self awareness. For context, young person in consulting here.
Anyone have any good psychology book recommendations? I’m trying to learn more about myself and find psychology interesting.

Anyone have good NON-FICTION recommendations? Enjoy self-help and psychology books (as long as they’re not overly pedantic). Already read grit, outliers, atomic habits, running (haruki murakami)

What is a useful, comprehensive but not too long of a book for parenting toddlers?
LO is 16 months old, very sweet and social, at the park every day with other kids with either me or her nanny. Not in day care. Yesterday we had a play date and she slapped another baby on the head. Not hard and did not scare her, but the act of “aggression” took me by surprise and I felt terrible about it. I’d like to be more proactive about toddler psychology, what’s to come and how to react/ teach. TY!
Need to get a colposcopy (cervix biopsy) and I am absolutely freaking out😬I know a few people who have said it was exceptionally painful.

Any tips to ease the pain/prepare?

People who are long FAANG, do any of the government lawsuits coming worry you(antitrust/monopoly, content, etc) as a long term shareholder? I figure most of these tech companies may get a slap on the wrist but understand the risks. Heck, most of these senators are invested in these companies and are they really going to break up companies like Amazon & Facebook? Seems like they would establish an extremely dangerous precedent
Can anyone refer me in PWC?
Serber and Associates has to be the most archaic. Corrupt law firm in South Florida. For crying out loud, who pays their Associates less than $100,000, while flashing off his wealth in front of the same people. People criticize big law but it's clear that they have a much better business model.

Shocking reality: your GPA and test scores don't make you special.
The reality is that there will be more qualified people applying to HBS or any other top Business schools than they have spots. If you aggregate the number of people from MBB/ banking/Tech/ Military that apply to these firms, I would argue that’s well north of the 50% of these applicants. I can also assume that the people from these backgrounds are likely to have north of a 3.5 GPA due to the selectivity of these careers.
Additional Posts in Accounting Exit Opportunities
I’m in my 2nd year in audit. I want to pivot into management consulting within a big 4 or MBB. Has anyone seen someone make this lateral movement? I’m not sure how feasible that is and what steps to take. I’m also down to discuss further with whoever is comfortable in connecting.

people who moved from PA > industry, how hard was it to learn to actually do recons, flux, and other month end processes vs auditing it?
Thoughts on considering/accepting counteroffers from current firm that you are leaving? I feel as if I will always have a target on my back and a reactive versus proactive positioning from the current firm says a lot as I had been asking for a switch for a little while. Anyone accept or even just have thoughts on considering a counter (given it would be same salary and similar position to outside offer).
Do you guys think that when you make the switch to industry you should try to land a job at a public company? I want to make $300-$400k eventually as a CFO one day and I think that going into a public company will get me there instead of switch to a private. What do you think?

If you want to be a professor, I’d start that path immediately. PhDs take a while, and so does getting tenure at a university
(2/X) How do I figure out what it is I want to do? Would switching to consulting really make anything better? Should I go into HR? Business Development? The ultimate end goal is probably to become a professor, however, I want more real world experience before jumping into academia again. Anyone ever totally switched industries?
