Lynn has been a lifelong learner in the field of psychology since age 11 culminating in a M.A. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and some doctoral-level coursework in Social Psychology. For the past several years after formal education, she has devoted herself to the study of the genetic roots of personality and, more recently, how this relates to the need for finding suitable work roles and working conditions.
Finally, Lynn’s motivation for providing book reviews is due to an insane love of reading that often compels her to read about 200-250 pages a day. Her top accomplishment was completing The Lord of the Rings in four days.
