The funny and entertaining Brian Little leads us to consider the introverts and extraverts in our lives, why we sometimes act out of character, and what we can do about it. It is clear why Harvard’s graduating classes voted him a Favorite Professor three times in a row. His book Me, Myself, and Us will be released October 14, 2014.

Professor Brian R. Little received his early education in British Columbia and his Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley. He has taught at Oxford, Carleton and Harvard Universities and was Distinguished Scholar in the Department of Social and Developmental Psychology at Cambridge University from 2011-2013. For three consecutive years Brian was elected by the graduating classes of Harvard as a “Favorite Professor.” He is an internationally respected researcher in the fields of personality and motivational psychology.

Professor Little currently lectures to psychology students and EMBA students at the Cambridge Judge Business School and he is a Fellow of the Well-Being Institute at Cambridge.

He aspires to play professional basketball and has a personal project of growing a foot and a half within the next few months.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
