You can now listen to or download my interview on the Texas Conflict Coach webradio show of moral psychologist Jonathan Haidt, as we discuss his new book:  The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion. Jonathan is a professor of psychology at the NYU-Stern School of Business. His research focuses on morality – its emotional foundations, cultural variations, and developmental course. He uses his research to help people understand and respect the moral motives of their enemies (visit, and see his 2008 TED talk).

During our interview Jonathan highlighted the three central pillars of his book:

  • We intuit first and reason second
  • There is more to morality than harm & fairness
  • Morality can bind or blind

Whether you are conservative or liberal you probably have gotten yourself into trouble by not heeding Jonathan’s advice. So listen in and learn how you can prevent and better understand why folks remain divided.

Jonathan’s Call to Action is to complete the quiz at and use your results to explore your morality and how it influences your relationships with others.
