Living in sharehouses in our 20s are like their own weird, social experiment. We put together a group of people with different upbringings, personalities, lifestyles and standards under one roof and expect it to work out. Sometimes it does, other times it doesn't and we see social harmony break down. In today's episode we discuss: The four styles of roommates The Cinderella Roommate The psychology of freeloading The influence of personality Living with friends The role of communication Conflict, stonewalling and the silent treatment When its time to move out! Listen now as we break down the psychology of roommates and sharehouses. And don't forget to share your horror roommate stories!
