911: Esther Perel | Cheating, Argument, and Conflict

The Jordan Harbinger Show

Oct 17 2023 • 1 hr 19 mins

Where should we begin examining our problems with relationships, cheating, conflict, and more? Legendary therapist Esther Perel talks us through it here!

What We Discuss with Esther Perel:

  • People who cheat don't necessarily want to leave their partner — they want to leave what they have become, or to get in touch with another part of themselves that they miss.
  • Is monogamy a state that mating humans evolved toward naturally, or is it more of a social construct imposed for the sake of control?
  • Most of us don't argue because we love conflict, but because we're trying to galvanize some kind of change that requires another person's participation. So how can we argue better for the sake of both parties?
  • What we can learn from conflict — especially with respect to creating connection.
  • As an expert in intimacy and human connection, where does Esther see us heading as a species when we can all have bespoke AI in our pocket that just exists to make us happy?
  • And much more...
