60. Bill Eddy – Dealing with High Conflict Personalities Part 2

Bill Eddy is the Co-Founder and Training Director at the award-winning consultancy and training firm, High Conflict Institute, where he helps professionals to better understand and manage their team members with high conflict personalities. Bill has been recognized worldwide as the international expert in managing disputes involving people with personality disorders. His diverse background as an attorney, therapist, and mediator as well as his work in managing disputes and mediating conflicts with people with personality disorders has led to the development of the High Conflict Personality Theory.

Bill joins me again to discuss how heredity, the environment and culture, as well as your early childhood development are contributing factors in the development of your personality. We discuss limiting your exposure to social media and why it’s often challenging for us to limit that exposure. We also discuss why Bill strongly advises parents to control and limit what their children see on social media, why it’s critical for Americans to learn about high conflict personalities, and why all human behavior is merely a series of patterns.

“What’s changing today is the culture, more than anything. And the culture is giving us images today of dysfunctional behavior.” – Bill Eddy
