The Infinity Loop of Sameness and Difference
Aug 19, 2019 Season 5 Episode 47
Sas Petherick

In this episode, we explore a concept from developmental psychology that our growth as adults is partly about increasing our capacity to understand, reflect on and respond to two key psychological states: sameness and difference.

I see the infinity loop as symbolic of this process that we are always moving through: one loop is sameness which represents safety, stability and peace; this is where we feel settled, where we integrate and consolidate what we learn out in the world. The other loop is difference, which offers us the stimulation of energy, complexity and newness that we need to grow.

We explore what happens within these states, how we get stuck and why self-doubt is integral to keep moving.

If you enjoyed this idea, check out my new programme especially for business owners: Sovereign State of Mind. If you are self-employed, freelancer or a solo business owner and you know self-doubt is holding you back from you potential - this is for you! We start on Monday 2nd September.
