Would you take LSD to give you a boost at work? WIRED takes a trip inside the world of microdosing
Workplace productivity: Microdosers report that their (typically) bi-weekly LSD regime results in greater focus, "flow" of productivity and problem solving, and improved empathy and interpersonal skills (the latter two being in arguably short supply in Silicon Valley). But without laboratory testing, this is purely anecdotal and the effects - long- and short-term - remain unknown
Fear of not being good enough, being different, or simply not fitting in - can be a trigger for illness. Build on your coping & life skills. Build self esteem & confidence. Developing rapport with people is a good place to start.
