The British Psychological Society has been publishing the Research Digest blog since 2003, bringing you short summaries of psychological research for 6 years. To mark the occasion of its 150th email edition, the editors have invited some of the “world’s leading psychologists to look inwards and share, in 150 words, one nagging thing they still don’t understand about themselves. Their responses are by turns candid, witty and thought-provoking.”

You can check out Marty Seligman’s battle with self-control and weight loss, Paul Ekman’s disagreements with the Dalai Lama and Sue Gardner’s note about being aware of excessive introspection without a guide.

These are interesting snippets from some interesting psychologists. My only wish was that they were allowed to write more than 150 words, because in many cases I found myself saying, “Please say more about this topic!”

Read all of the psychologists’ entries here: One nagging thing you still don’t understand about yourself. If you’re not subscribed to the Research Digest blog, I highly recommend it.
