Narcissists’ Lack of Empathy Tied to Less Gray Matter - Psych Central News

Narcissists’ Lack of Empathy Tied to Less Gray Matter  - Psych Central News | Leadership & Behaviour | Scoop.it

Researchers have found that people with narcissistic personality disorder have less gray matter in the left anterior insula, a region of the brain linked to empathy.

 

Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which the sufferers have an inflated sense of their own importance and a lack of empathy.  They generally suffer from low self-esteem and feelings of inferiority, but have displays of arrogance and vanity.

Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect | KurzweilAI

Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect | KurzweilAI | Leadership & Behaviour | Scoop.it

n Social, renowned psychologist Matthew Lieberman explores groundbreaking research in social neuroscience revealing that our need to connect with other people is even more fundamental, more basic, than our need for food or shelter.  Because of this, our brain uses its spare time to learn about the social world – other people and our relation to them. It is believed that we must commit 10,000 hours to master a skill.  According to Lieberman, each of us has spent 10,000 hours learning to make sense of people and groups by the time we are ten.

Social argues that our need to reach out to and connect with others is a primary driver behind our behavior.

A very new interesting book on how our brains are as wired to connect as they are wired to seek food and shelter...further proof that the social constructivists were onto something, and further evidence that the blended learning world is going to have to ensure that connection is a deep part of what students get to do when they are learning online: for most students, solitary computer work is not going to feel transformational.
