For years we thought that focusing on self-esteem was critical for ourselves and raising our children. While a healthy self-esteem is important to happiness, there is very little evidence that shows that pursuing self-esteem results in greater outcomes or helps you perform better. In this fascinating interview with Dr. Jennifer Crocker, Professor and Ohio Eminent Scholar in Social Psychology at Ohio State University, we talk about the problems that can arise with too much of a focus on self-esteem and what you can do instead to build real confidence without affecting your feelings of self-worth.
