Dimitris Portokalis's curator insight, March 12, 5:09 PM

"Practice saying “Something in me feels ________,” instead of “I feel ________,” and notice the difference that makes."


"What happens when you say “Something in me” instead of “I”? What usually happens is that you feel bigger than the trouble, even though it is still here (we wouldn’t want to push it away). It becomes something you can be with instead of something that you are."

Society for Humanistic Psychology: Authentic People Are More Psychologically Adjusted and Seen More Accurately By Others

Society for Humanistic Psychology: Authentic People Are More Psychologically Adjusted and Seen More Accurately By Others | focusing_gr | Scoop.it
focusing_gr's insight:

In Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Lauren J. Human and colleagues (2014) examined why well-adjusted people seem to be judged more accurately. Their investigation led them to discover that those who are well-adjusted are viewed more accurately due to the congruency between their personality and actions. In other words, more well-adjusted people were more authentic or congruent, and therefore were more transparent to others as a result. These findings support a key concept of humanistic psychology identified by Carl Rogers: a key ingredient of a fully functioning personality is congruency or authenticity.

What are Felt Senses?

Some felt senses are strong enough that they force themselves into our awareness, like the feeling of butterflies in your stomach before going on stage. But, most of the time, felt senses lie below our ordinary level of consciousness.
