TEDx Talks wrote: Emily Bebenek's interest in psychology led her to explore the concept of social acceptance. While her own experiences serve as the foundation of her talk, Emily also discusses the psychological motivation for why we, as humans, are so hard on ourselves and why we are so defensive, how that attitude hurts us in the short and long run, and how we can hopefully change.
