236: Why Everything You Know About Relationships Is (Mostly) Wrong with Eric Barker

By June 28, 2022February 2nd, 2023No Comments

What if I told you that a lot of what we think we know about relationships is wrong?

We have a lot of misconceptions about each other and what it takes to have a good relationship in general. And I’m not just talking about romantic relationships. I’m talking about friendships, colleagues, or even people you just meet.

Every über successful person I know is still most proud of their relationships. Relationships increase our life spans and even our health. Connection gives us meaning and purpose.

So how do we master first impressions? How can we get a feel for someone faster? How can we figure out if someone is being truthful? How can we diffuse arguments faster or resolve conflicts better?

That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Eric Barker.

Eric Barker is the author of The Wall Street Journal bestseller “Barking Up the Wrong Tree”, which has sold over half a million copies. It was even the subject of a question on “Jeopardy!” His newest book “Plays Well with Others” was just released.
