Our April topic of “Authenticity” was suggested a number of times, by guests who wanted to discuss conflicts between personal and work or relationship needs, standing up for something, finding “true self,” and the Imposter Syndrome (feeling like a fraud).
- What if we are different people in different contexts — at work or with different groups of friends?
- When is being inauthentic useful or better in some way?
- How does social media impact how we express our selves, perceive others, or shape our identity?
- What is the role of honesty, or expressing what we believe?
- What’s the purpose of authenticity? What do we intend to get or be by being authentic?
- ‘Being authentic’ and ‘being true to yourself’ are popular ideas — when do people “use” or “perform” authenticity?
