Episode Details

Our desire to lose weight is often no match for the pull of a cheeseburger. It’s no wonder our minds and appetites are in a constant battle for the driver’s seat! This lesson explores multiple elements of psychological motivation, including hunger for air, eating disorders, the desire for sex, and the need to belong. Other important topics include sexual orientation, motivation in the workplace, and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s concept of flow.
