If you’ve been hanging out with me for a while, you’ll see that I am a big fan of the behavioral arts Youtube channel. In fact, I’ve watched at least a dozen of their videos because they are the most entertaining. It has always amazed me that when you are watching a video about behavior, you are actually doing it, and you might even be enjoying it.
The YouTube channel of the Behavioral Arts has a lot of videos of people who have been doing behavior for a long time. It’s really kind of like those guys in The Office who are always on the verge of exploding. The channel of the Behavioral Arts is full of these guys, complete with very long videos of them doing what they’ve been doing for years. The channel is called the Behaviour Arts YouTube, and it really is one of the best.
Behaviourals is a huge and growing community of psychologists, behavioral researchers, and students in psychology who study a wide variety of behaviors. I just watched a video of someone who studies how people interact with food. I think she’s the woman in The Office who is always eating a bagel with cream cheese.
So she spends a lot of her time studying people who have no clue how to cook, like the guy who cuts up the vegetables for her at the grocery store. I watched a video of a teacher who taught a class of kindergartners how to use a spoon to eat food. She teaches them about how to properly use a spoon so they can be more able to eat properly. And of course she teaches them how to give themselves a proper haircut.
That’s right. A good teacher is a good teacher, and the right teacher is a good teacher.
The behavioral sciences are interesting because they are often quite hard to learn. And yet, some of these people teach us how to behave ourselves. If you are able to find a teacher that is an expert in their field, great. But to find one that is an expert in your field, you will need to develop a different skill set. If you can’t find the right teacher then you can always use the internet to find a good one.
It is worth noting that some behaviorists do not feel they can adequately teach you how to behave yourself. I know I feel that way. After reading about the different ways people are taught to behave on youtube, I feel like I need to spend more time learning how to behave myself, in order to be that much more effective.

In his book The Art of Listening, behavioral scientist Roger Borsodi says that listening is a “highly learned skill.” In other words, the more time you spend on it, the better you get at it. This isn’t just some arbitrary rule about whether a person can listen to something. It’s about how well the person can actually listen. It’s that listening ability that sets apart the behavioral scientist from the average person.
Borsodi writes in his book that the best way to learn how to listen is to learn how to speak with people. We’ve all heard people talking and you can tell they want to talk about something, but then they don’t really. This is where the behavioral scientist steps in. They try to find the right moment to get the person you are talking to to talk about something they are interested in so they can learn how to listen.
