The scenarios from your mind

   Have you ever wondered why we sometimes run some weird negative scenarios through our mind that makes us feel bad or angry? How often does that happen to you?    Today I caught myself running such a scenario with some people walking around me. Out of nowhere my mind made up a situation in... Continue Reading →

Challenge Your Fear

   Let’s take this example so commonly used by other people to prove this point. If they use it, it’s probably real so I’m going to use it too because I’m too lazy to think about a new one. Let’s say that you are a very hard worker in your company and you have excellent... Continue Reading →

Your Emotions are in Your Way

   A severe negative emotion interferes with the way we see our future. It can be so bad that we forget emotions are temporary and in those moments, we strongly believe that we’ll be in that state the rest of our lives. How stupid does that sound? And still, it’s very true.    Having a... Continue Reading →

The Anger Path

   Now let’s get to something spicy:    On a daily basis, what makes me angry and why?    This question can help us identify the main sources that change our mood on a daily basis. Anger is one of our basic emotions so it has a great potential to make our day worse. When... Continue Reading →

Your Emotion is Your Energy

   Each action we make involves some energy, but where is all that energy coming from? You surely noticed that we feel more energized when we do certain actions compared with others even though no additional energy came in.    It seems that whenever we like something, we somehow find more energy to invest in...

Your Past vs Your Present

A Core Belief in action

Shaping The Dragons

   Are you ready to start a constant duel with your thoughts? I’ve mentioned before the reason why it needs to be constant. It will be harder in the beginning, but with practice, we’ll develop a habit of countering them constantly. There will be times when it might be too hard to find the required... Continue Reading →

Multitasking vs Quick Switch

   In society, multitasking is seen as the ability to do multiple things in the same time and as stephaniedanielsonauthor pointed out in a previous comment, employers are in a search for this skill because they think it’s effective even though studies show that it isn’t (Junco & Cotton, 2010 & 2012).    “Human multitasking...

The “person-in-the-world” approach

   The whole point of psychology is to understand the human being, but sometimes it drifts away from this and it tends to see a person as a bunch of projected theories. Some years ago, a dude called Rollo May said something like “F*ck this sh*t! I’m going to make psychology about humans again!” and... Continue Reading →

Are our assumptions helpful or harmful?

   Since we enjoyed some beautiful content about cognitive biases lately, I’d like to approach another bias we “love” to do. It’s about assumptions.    We assume. A lot. Whenever there is something we don’t have information about, we fill in the blanks with whatever we believe to be real based on our past experiences.... Continue Reading →

Introversion vs Extraversion

   These personality traits are very popular and used by a large number of tests. Even though we see this most of the time as two different things, it’s actually more of a continuum so the conclusion is that we all have some percentage of each of these two traits (according to Carl Jung and...

Does Burnout Subdue Empathy?

Provided by Scherezade Ozwulo   Originally posted on The Introverted Christian    Ever since I could remember, I always had an affinity for older people. I, myself had an “old soul” and found it easy to relate to those not in my peer group. Older folks (seniors) told the best stories of childhood reminiscence and... Continue Reading →
