- [Announcer] This content is brought to you by Blinkist. (bright playful music) - [Instructor] Daniel Shapiro, "Negotiating the Nonnegotiable: How to Resolve Your Most Emotionally Charged Conflicts". At some point in all of our lives and probably quite often for many of us, we'll get into an argument with someone else. It might be a good friend, an acquaintance, a parent, or perhaps even the love of your life, but you might suddenly find that you can't get past the same cycles of disagreement on the same issues over and over again. Soon enough, you realize you've spent the whole morning, day or even week in a state of anguish and without having made any progress toward a resolution. So how can we get past the insidious entrapments of interpersonal conflicts, and what do our self-perception and identities have to do with it? Well, as you'll find out in these blinks, the way we perceive ourselves actually has a key influence on our approach to conflict.
