Is there any truth to the rumor that people with light eyes are more sensitive to sunlight?

Ryan Barlow's curator insight, April 22, 2013 11:43 AM

Because there is less pigmintation in lighter-colored eyes, there are fewer layers in the eyes that can block out rays of light.  This means that people with fair eyes tend to have greater sensitivity to light and color.

Pet Therapy: How Animals And Humans Heal Each Other with Empathy : NPR

Pet Therapy: How Animals And Humans Heal Each Other with Empathy : NPR | Cognitive Cues | Scoop.it

Dogs, cats birds, fish and even horses are increasingly being used in settings ranging from hospitals and nursing homes to schools, jails and mental institutions. ....studies have been focusing on the fact that interacting with animals can increase people's level of the hormone oxytocin.

 

"That is very beneficial for us," says Johnson. "Oxytocin helps us feel happy and trusting." Which, Johnson says, may be one of the ways that humans bond with their animals over time.

 

... "Oxytocin has some powerful effects for us in the body's ability to be in a state of readiness to heal, and also to grow new cells, so it predisposes us to an environment in our own bodies where we can be healthier."

"Music unquestionably affects our emotions. We tend to listen to music that reflects our mood. When we’re happy we may listen to upbeat music; when we’re sad we may listen to slower, moving songs; when we’re angry we may listen to darker music with heavy guitar, drums, and vocals that reflect our level of anger."

'Small Box' Retail: Passing Fad or 'Eureka Moment' for e-Commerce? - Knowledge@Wharton

'Small Box' Retail: Passing Fad or 'Eureka Moment' for e-Commerce? - Knowledge@Wharton | Cognitive Cues | Scoop.it

Now that consumers can shop online for goods and services at any time of the day or night, the next challenge is how to navigate through the bewildering array of product choices available in almost any category.

 

A recent phenomenon called ‘discovery commerce’ is trying to help. Using subscription services, companies are offering a unique and personalized buying experience: Sign up with us, and once a month a thoughtful surprise will land on your doorstep.

 

It could be a box full of cosmetics, snacks, blouses or shoes. Variations on the format are rolling off the line. For $20 a month, NatureBox promises healthy, minimally processed snacks — cranberry almond bites, vegetable chips and whole-wheat figgy bars. Stork Stack, for $27.99, will send a box of items for baby “selected with love by our team of Moms.” JewelMint flashes monthly choices from “a versatile collection inspired by the runway, vintage jewelry and on-trend celebrity style.”

 

Discovery commerce ignites an emotional charge that’s key to the experience. “Why do people buy?” asks Wharton marketing professor Barbara E. Kahn, director of Wharton’s Jay H. Baker Retailing Center. “They have a need or a want …. But the subscription model introduces you to a new fun treasure hunt for things.” For others, it is more practical. Parents and others are busy and not necessarily equipped to research everything out there. So why not let someone else sort through new products and customize choices for you?

The growth of #discoverycommerce as a retail subscription service, raises more questions than it answers. How can a "eureka" moment be detected on a continuous basis?

Self-compassion, empathy, and helping intentions

Self-compassion, empathy, and helping intentions | Cognitive Cues | Scoop.it
(2013). Self-compassion, empathy, and helping intentions. The Journal of Positive Psychology. ???aop.label???. doi: 10.1080/17439760.2013.831465

 

The trait of self-compassion has three components: (1) kindness toward oneself when facing pain or failure; (2) perceiving one’s experiences as part of a larger human experience rather than feeling isolated; and (3) holding painful thoughts and feelings in balanced awareness. The present research explores if self-compassion predicts willingness to help others and empathy for others in need of help.

 

Study 1 found that self-compassion predicted greater willingness to help a hypothetical person while simultaneously reducing empathy for that person. Study 2 used a more nuanced measure of empathy and found that self-compassion was only related to feeling less personal distress in response to someone else’s emergency.

 

In addition, in Study 2, self-compassion only predicted greater helping intentions when the target was at fault for the emergency. Lastly, both self-compassion and empathy were uniquely related to participants’ willingness to help an individual in need.
