The Human Mind - EP 2/3

In this three-part documentary, Robert Winston explores all aspects of the human mind – from how we learn, to how we’re able to recognise faces and what makes one person ‘click’ with another.

Episode 2:

Personality explores what it is that makes us who we are and uncovers the universal battle we face to master our emotions and control our behaviour.

Professor Robert Winston explores how our minds shape our personalities throughout our lives, and reveals how personality traits like extroversion and introversion develop. Find out how parents can affect the personalities of their children, why teenagers are so emotionally sensitive and what lies at the heart of characteristics like anger and mood–swings in adults.

Discover what we can change about our personalities – and what we can’t. And see a man successfully transform his personality to be more as he’d like it to be.
