Ever found yourself saying things you wish you hadn’t during an argument with a loved one? Yes? Of course.
Blame your amygdala, a temperamental part of the brain quick to respond to perceived threats.
In this TED Talk by Kwame Christian, a business lawyer and the director of the American Negotiation Institute (AMI), he teaches how to properly react to conflict, despite the nudging of our amygdala.
Christian, using his wife and his favorite bowl of cereal as an example teaches how to calm down, access a situation, and react with compassion and curiosity.
