I help people think and act more effectively.

Hi, I’m Dr. Itamar Shatz.

I write about psychological and philosophical concepts that help people improve their productivity, decision-making, communication, learning, and wellbeing.

My writing is based on extensive research, which focuses on synthesizing actionable insights from recent scientific studies. I try to write in a way that’s practical, accessible. and concise.
