What we're about

This meetup aims to bring together like-minded people who are interested in learning and applying knowledge of psychology (esp. behavioral psychology) to improve their lives. In contrast with most of the self-help material, which promotes mindless and unattainable positivity, our aim is to have scientific discussions on key ideas from psychology, and gain understanding and insights into deep-rooted thoughts and behavioral patterns.

Structure
Each meetup event focusses on one key idea, and is structured as follows:
(15-20 mins) Initial talk/video/book review
(50 mins) Discussion (sharing personal experiences optional)
(10 mins) Summary and key takeaways
(10 mins) Review and feedback, planning future events
Although some sections of the discussions can possibly include sensitive and serious discussions, the overall sense for each meetup will be *positive* and *solution-oriented*, with goals of self-improvement.
