A pregnant behavioral scientist

This is me — 32 weeks — taking a classic hand on the hip picture.

Stage 1: I’m having A baby! (High-level construal)

Stage 1: High level. The baby is far in the future.

How will I feel during birth?
What or who will this child be like?
What’s my view on night nannies?

Stage 2: I’m having THIS baby. (Low-level construal)

Stage 2: Low level. The baby is coming.

A puzzle: The Gender Gap

What’s that about?

Why did I move from Stage 1 to Stage 2 so much faster than my partner?


The better explanation — people

What’s the lesson here?

So what?? What’s the insight?

From resentment…to reality
