Read full description of the books:
Robert Ornstein's classic 'Multimind' presents a startling new concept of how the human mind works. In a readable and accessible way, Ornstein introduces the new science of the mind, explaining why our emotions and attitudes are so easily swayed, and the difficulty of ever really knowing oneself, or another person. Ornstein faults the narrowness of IQ tests, stressing the many varied abilities that make up intelligence. Citing studies of hypnosis and multiple personality, he explains how several minds coexist in each of us - that each of us has many "small minds" that simultaneously, but independently process feelings, fantasies, ideas, fixed routines, interpersonal responses in bodily skills. As we travel through our daily lives, different parts of our "minds" come to the fore to handle different situations. This means that "we" are not the same person from moment to moment with different memories and abilities in different situations. Reading this groundbreaking book will help you take a step towards understanding who we really are.
