Book referral for Your Road Map to Lifelong Happiness: A Guide to the Life You Want
Keyes goes into quirks only in his last book Your Road Map to Lifelong
Happiness : A Guide to the Life You Want. Anatomically we have three brains: the
reptilian, mammalian and rational (and four if you count the gut which has over half of
your body’s nerve cells). The rational mind is a relatively recent addition in
evolutionary history. The connections between it and the older mammalian and reptilian
brains have quirks yet to be ironed out. Your rational brain and old brains can be
working at cross purposes. Your mammalian brain is in charge of emotions. It might, for
example, give you a squirt of adrenaline when your boss points out an error you made,
preparing you for fight or flight — not exactly the most appropriate action. It is
designed for survival in the jungle. Your old brain (reptilian+mammalian) tends to make
five classes of error.

|Ken’s last book finished just before he died. He introduces EMDR, Harville Hendrix, Ron Kurtz’s Hakomi and other therapies as much faster ways of getting rid of addictions than using his classic methods.|

- Object Quirk The old brain confuses different people and things.
For example you may overreact to a loving mate asking you to put your socks in the
laundry basket as if they were an abusive parent chasing you with a strap.
- Time Quirk The old brain merges past, present and future into the
now experience. For example, you may react to some mild
teasing with the same emotional intensity that you reacted to the physical abuse you
endured from your childhood peers.
- Unsafe Stranger Quirk The old brain feels threatened by all
- Unchanging Entity Quirk The old brain is not attuned to the way
people and things are constantly changing.
- Adaptable Memory Quirk The old brain adapts or creates memories to
support current interests.
Being aware of these errors helps you understand irrational emotional reactions to
events both in yourself and others.
