(outlink) Talent Development Resources - the psychology of creative expression and personal development

Talent Development Resources - the psychology of creative expression and personal development is a blog dedicated to various forms of self development, with a focus on classical psychology. Nice.

For the would-be seducers out there, their pick of Christina Baldwin on the Power of Story seems nice (directly here).

Story — the abundance of it, and the lack of it — shapes us. Story — the abundance of it, and the lack of it — gives us place, lineage, history, a sense of self.

Story — the abundance of it, and the lack of it — breaks us into pieces, shatters our understanding and gives it back over and over again, the story different every time.

Story — the abundance of it, and the lack of it — connects us with the world and outlines our relationship with everything.

When the power of story comes into the room, an alchemical reaction occurs that is unique to our kind: love or hate, identification or isolation, war or peace, good or evil intent can be stirred in us by words alone.

  • Everyone should learn how to tell stories better and not stories about "Oh god I was so drunk I puked all over her" type of stories.

    But rather, stories that make you laugh, learn a lesson, or make the audience say "awwwwwwww" at the end.
