Advanced Inner Mammal Training

This training guides you to apply your knowledge of the inner mammal to real-life situations. You will build your skill at leading a person toward the happy chemical circuits they want to build, and how they might do it. Access the quizzes and assigned resources by clicking on the details below.

There are 3 quizzes based on specific books, nature videos, and slideshows. Each quiz poses a series of scenarios that we encounter in daily life. You will write short answers based on the assigned reading and visual resources. (If you have trouble locating the videos, we will try to help, since nothing is more life-changing than watching mammalian social rivalry in the wild!) Email your answers to Dr. Breuning will respond in a 15-minute video chat at a mutually convenient time. After the first quiz, you will get a free copy of How I Escaped Political Correctness. (Not assigned reading – just a gift.)
