Identity politics have become a hot topic in the Western world. People tend to attach their sense of identity to certain political ideas, gender identity, ethnic or religious group, sexual orientation etc, and often get triggered when they perceive their identity is being threatened.

Today we discuss why it is useful and important to detach from these categories in order to develop psychologically. We talk about how to deconstruct your identity and tell the stories of how we have done it.

All you can say at the end of the day is 'I am.' That's the only accurate statement you could make about yourself. Click To Tweet

In This Episode Of Future Thinkers:

  • What it means to deconstruct your identity, and how it enables us to see things more objectively
  • The current narratives of diversity, oppression and globalization as formative forces
  • The relationship between individual expression and narcissistic culture
  • Why it is difficult to stand out in a globalized culture and why we emphasize differences
  • Why people remain attached to ideas even after those ideas are disproved
  • The role of basic human needs when it comes to attachments
  • The different methods for deconstructing identity
  • Getting comfortable with contradiction and letting go of the attachment to results
It is very important, for the sake of reducing suffering, to not require the results, that one theory is proven right and another proven wrong, or to have a binary answer for any given situation. Click To Tweet
