We help you understand your world and help you change it.
First Person Politics uses political psychology to help you reach your goals. Our mission is to add a psychologically informed perspective to your work, bringing you the most powerful strategies, tools, and ideas political psychology has to offer.
For decades, experts in nearly every branch of psychology have been telling us the same thing: the vast majority of our political beliefs and behaviors are determined by factors completely outside conscious awareness. Our psychology drives our politics.
First Person Politics offers a variety of solutions based on the latest political psychology research to help you reach and exceed your goals. In addition, we offer educational seminars to introduce you to key topics in political psychology, generational theory and political strategy.
