Episode Info:

In this
episode, Jose and Nicholas discuss Nicholas’ third favorite topic, personality
models. In Season 1 Episodes 2–3, we discussed a single model of personality
but there are many others out there. This time we talk about some of those other
models and, boy, do we have opinions. Although we don’t like many of these
models, we do our best to explain our concerns and link them to what research
knows. Join us and learn about what you should be looking for when it comes to
different models of personality!
