About

This blog is an effort of Sandeep Gautam (sandygautam on most social web services) to learn, and at the same time document his journey, and share his knowledge, of psychology and neuroscience, with like-minded folks – a rider is in place at this point: He is primarily a software professional (a computer science major), as such, all his musings need to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Sandeep Gautam

Sandeep Gautam has developed expertise in positive psychology and the emotional/ motivational subsystems the hard way- by putting in close to 10000 hrs of self-study. While his day job requires him to lead and manage software development teams in a networking and telecommunications giant; he moonlights as a psychology and neuroscience blogger at The Mouse Trap and at the Psychology Today blog The Fundamental Four. He also blogs at The Creativity Post and his blog for The Times Of India is called Mind Cafe.

Besides being a poet and a philosopher, he is also passionate about positive psychology and has tried his hands at ventures both related to software and positive psychology application in school settings.

A perpetual learner, and believer in the growth mindset (and a Free Will proponent), he has developed expertise by reading up extensively on psychology and neuroscience literature and believes its just the start of his journey.

His interest areas span from Affective, Motivational and Personality research; to developmental and evolutionary unfolding of stages in a pre-determined order; to conceiving autism and psychosis as opposed on a continuum spectrum; to interest in creativity, genius , positive psychology and its application in school/ work settings.

He is also an author of a work of psychological fiction “The Sculptor and the Sandman” and will like to write a non-fiction psychology book too in the near future.
