We can all be pretty awkward. Right? Here we cover the psychology of awkwardness. But it’s not all bad news. It’s a good thing that we’re aware of ourselves and care about how others perceive us. Feeling awkward can push us to sharpen our social skills. 👌

BrainCraft was created by Vanessa Hill (@nessyhill) and is brought to you by PBS Digital Studios. Talking psychology, neuroscience & why we act the way we do.

This episode was written by Bahar Gholipour, filmed by Dominique Taylor, edited, hosted and produced by Vanessa Hill.
