What do Taylor Swift, Cognitive Psychology, Gucci Mane, Dissent, and The Most Dangerous Person Alive have in common? The answer is the “Hater Mindset”. In “Be A Hater” Dr. Parham examines the emergence of the “Hater Mindset” in contemporary culture. This book delves into a subtle and subconscious cultural shift in the concept of a “hater”. The shift from viewing a “hater” as someone trying to hold you back or stop you from succeeding, to viewing a “hater” as anyone who disagrees or dissents from your opinion. This shift while subtle has strong implications for critical thinking, the value of relationships, an individual’s happiness, cognitive entitlement, and more. In “Be A Hater” Dr. Parham brings this subconscious shift to the surface and equips the reader to counter its effects by challenging them to “Be A Hater!”
