Why You Argue With Yourself

Original Question:

Isn't it annoying how you want to do something, like achieve a goal, and yet you consistently do the opposite? We often tell people that we are something or want something, and then totally go against it with our behaviour, like eating junk food while talking about getting healthy, or complaining about being single but never approaching new people for dates.
In this video we explore MacLean's "Triune Brain Theory" to help you understand why you say one thing but do another (and how to stop this).
