Hello!
Are you an avid Popular Psychology reader or an expert in the field?

We are in need of a brief summary of the "current state" of research in psychology and neuroscience to assess how we can incorporate it in a niche educational course.  This outline will be built out into a content module as part of a larger project by our subject matter experts.

Specifically, we are looking for a short, structured outline that briefly explains the key takeaways from the valid research that popular books like Thinking Fast & Slow and The Power of Habit cover (basically extracting the key research these books are based on).  We are especially interested in those that are actionable for improving the quality of life.

Some questions that it will need to answer / topics to cover:
Cognitive bias
Willpower/Discipline
Habits - formation / “overwriting”
Fixed/growth mindset
Stereotype threat and related performance-affecting concepts
Short term vs long term planning

The audience is not academic, so this needs to be accessible for writers covering the rest of the course material. Deliverable would be expected to be about 2-3 pages.  I will send an example of an article that is organized similar to what our end product will be.

Turnaround time preferred to be 1 week from hire.  If you are a expert or professional in this field, I’d be interested in talking further on potential quotes and other additions to the course aside from this project.
