MYW Unscripted Episode 02 – Why Can’t We Hold All These Personality Models?

In this episode, Jose and Nicholas discuss Nicholas’ third favorite topic, personality models. In Season 1 Episodes 2–3, we discussed a single model of personality but there are many others out there. This time we talk about some of those other models and, boy, do we have opinions. Although we don’t like many of these models, we do our best to explain our concerns and link them to what research knows. Join us and learn about what you should be looking for when it comes to different models of personality!
