Common psychological problem areas

Since I’ve started working with the Effective Altruism and Rationality community, a number of recurrent themes have emerged in therapy, which might also impact your current personal situation.

  • Perfectionism
  • Depression, low self-worth, lack of meaning in life
  • Anxiety, particularly social anxiety
  • Concerns about ADHD and Autism
  • Relationship issues, particularly relating to polyamory
  • Doubts and stress about career choice, particularly AI related careers
  • Difficulties establishing fulfilling connections with others 
About me

I’ve been involved in Effective Altruism since 2015 and headed the national Austrian Effective Altruism chapter for two years. Currently, I am treasurer of the national organization. I’ve organized several retreats, attended a number of conferences and am familiar with the literature, organizations and cause areas.
