Charles emails: Orit Arfa seems very nice, but Ayn Rand? Those books made there way around the dorm in yeshiva in Brooklyn and you could always tell who was reading them because they got better posture and wouldn’t talk to anyone-for about a week. If you see someone reading Fountainhead on the subway you can bet dollars to doughnuts that they are in high school or first year college (or a yeshiva bachur from my old dorm). I am surprised someone as enlightened as Orit would mention someone as troubled as Ayn Rand as her major influence. On another front, do you think that NLP pua stuff really works? A friend asked me.
