Fan Mail Friday #147 | Pumpkin Pie for Breakfast

Time for Fan Mail Friday, where we’ll be answering your questions and dropping some knowledge and feedback to help you kick the weekend off right.

In this episode:

  • What’s wrong with eating pumpkin pie for breakfast?
  • Are long distance, lack of communication, recurring patterns of behavior, and disempowering beliefs good enough reasons to break up with someone and stay broken up with someone?
  • Sometimes living in the city and commuting to a job in the suburbs isn’t the worst idea.
  • How can you overcome insecurity based around something you can’t change — like height?
  • Can a lifelong academic raised by tiger parents hope for a long-term relationship with someone who doesn’t have the drive to complete a degree?
  • If you’re tired of being seen as “the shy person” in a group, reinventing yourself isn’t as hard as you probably think it is.
  • What are the benefits of limited imposter syndrome?
  • What’s our advice for an introvert who is interested in cultivating a balance between gaining and maintaining meaningful social capital yet nurturing an adequate allotment of necessary alone time?
  • No Documentary of the Week, but Jordan and Jason riff on realities both virtual and augmented.
  • Quick shoutout to everyone who has been hitting up Jordan about cryptocurrency and blockchain stuff.
  • Have any questions, comments, or stories you’d like to share with us? Drop us a line at [email protected]!

Jordan Harbinger - author of 952 posts on The Art of Charm

Jordan Harbinger has spent several years abroad in Europe and the developing world, including South America, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East, and speaks several languages. He has also worked for various governments and NGOs overseas, traveled through war zones, and been kidnapped -- twice. He’ll tell you the only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of) just about any type of situation. Here at The Art of Charm, Jordan shares that experience, and the system borne as a result, with students and clients.
