“What if you could identify and understand the differences about how and why you fail miserably every time you try to connect with others on a deeper lever? Did you know that the better you understand your natural tendencies and how you instinctively express them in your behavior plays a pivotal role in you understanding and relating to others. It’s those exact same things, the things you take for granted about yourself, and assume are true about other people, that create the stumbling blocks in your ability to connect with them at a deeper and more meaningful level” states Dr. Young.
