Publisher's Summary

Understand, avoid, and defeat the subconscious causes of your irrational and self-defeating behaviors. It’s only human nature.

A psychological trigger is something that causes us to act out of urgency - not correctness or even happiness. It’s a switch that is flipped outside of our consciousness. This is fertile ground for some of the worst decisions of our lives.

Seize control and of your impulses and make better decisions. Psychological Triggers is an introduction to yourself - your impulses, your desires, and everything in your subconscious that drives you to action. It answers the question “why did I just make a terrible choice when I know I shouldn’t have?” 

We are all slaves to our triggers, and this book seeks to identify them to better battle them. We might think we are making our decisions independently and out of free will, but you’ll discover that to be far from reality.

Master your psychology, master your life.

Peter Hollins has studied psychology and peak human performance for over a dozen years and is a best-selling author. He has worked with a multitude of individuals to unlock their potential and path toward success. His writing draws on his academic, coaching, and research experience.

  • Think clearly and triumph over your human nature.
  • The triggering effects of social pressure and conformity.
  • How everyday emotions are behind some of the most powerful triggers.
  • Natural, biological, evolutionary human drives - can you regulate them?
  • Simple thinking traps we all fall victim to.
  • The notion of free will and whether it truly exists.

Beat psychological triggers, reclaim your free will and irrationality.

Is purely rational thinking, devoid of emotion and human drives, a reality? Probably not. But you can certainly live free from your worst impulses and irrational hunches, which are what psychological triggers create more often than not. See yourself thrive from consistently making beneficial decisions and defeating your primal psychology.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A broad, high level view into psychology

This work is a very high-level view of psychology and the triggers that affect us. It provides both facts and examples. Some of the material may seem common sense, but I don't know if many of us stop to put all of these points together as the author does. I think the material is presented in a way that combines what we know and fills in many of the blanks between. This is certainly not a deep dive into psychology but gives the reader the broad strokes.

The narration was great. The reader's voice is well suited for this material.

I learned things about myself!

I was not disappointed as the information helped me understand some things about myself for my betterment. I like Steve Campbells performance, and I feel grateful to Peter Hollins for this work; moreover, I found the information worthy of repeating the book a second time. I recommend this book especially for younger people as I believe it will help with their development. I would like to see this in our educational system – perhaps for high school seniors or college freshmen.

Interesting and an easy listen!

Love this book, I was hooked after the first chapter. Lots of amazing experiments explained and clearly described. The voice actor is clean spoken and engaging in a controlled yet conservation like dialog!

Good read. I learned much about triggers.

The book is a good review of many of the unconscious triggers that influence our behaviors and helps us to take back control.

Disappointed - just a review of general concepts

I bought this title thinking it was going to be an original examination of triggers with original research and insight but its just a collection of well known psychological topics that have been well covered in other sources. Most people by now have heard about the Standford experiment, confirmation bias and the seven deadly sins. I really thought this might be on the same level of Daniel Kahneman or other notable psychologists and I was extremely disappointed. At one point the author uses the children of Willy Wonka as an example of the pitfalls of greed and selfish behavior. I recommend you skip this one.

A very helpful and useful book

I really enjoyed listening to this audio book. It has given me a great insight into understanding parts of my brain and my behaviour. Hopefully it will help me make better decisions with my life.


It talks about the amygdala and limbic system which is part of the brain that deals with our emotions. This is the part of the brain that deals with our flight or fight response to protect us against perceived threats, however, it can cause us to behave irrationally because it responds much faster than our prefrontal cortex which deals with logic and reason. This book helps give us some tools about how to deal with this problem and help calm us down when in situations that trigger the amygdala. It goes into great discussion about fear and phobia and how it effects our behaviour.


It discusses our emotions and there are six according to Paul Ekman - Happyness, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, Fear and Suprise.


It also goes into a discussion about how our triggers can lead us into the seven deadly sins.


It gives us some solutions about how to deal with our triggers and how to make better decision with box breathing and the six hats technique..

only half a book

when an Author decides to reuse whole sections from other books he has written I can't help but be extremely disappointed.
and this is what Mr. Collins have done in this book, to the extent that I am unsure if the narrator recorded again or reused old material.
that hollins then also present guesswork and half truths as incontrovertible fact before belittling several groups of people is the reason for the bad review.

Steve did a great job as always, not his fault that the author copy paste parts of the books he is hired to narrate...

A thorough introduction

This book was useful in exploring the psychological triggers behind why we do what we do. I think it will be something I can apply in everyday life when I'm thinking about the way I act.
