Why Readers, Scientifically, Are The Best People To Fall In Love With

Why Readers, Scientifically, Are The Best People To Fall In Love With | Psychology & psychotherapy | Scoop.it
According to both 2006 and 2009 studies published by Raymond Mar, a psychologist at York University in Canada, and Keith Oatley, a professor of cognitive psychology at the University of Toronto, those who read fiction are capable of the most empathy and “theory of mind,” which is the ability to hold opinions, beliefs and interests apart from their own.

They can entertain other ideas, without rejecting them and still retain their own. While this is supposed to be an innate trait in all humans, it requires varying levels of social experiences to bring into fruition and probably the reason your last partner was such a narcissist.

Raise Your Words, Not Your Voice

Raise Your Words, Not Your Voice | Psychology & psychotherapy | Scoop.it
Cultivating cooperative communication
Joanna Boj's insight:

"One thing to consider here is that not arguing shouldn’t suggest not communicating. Conflict is a necessary part of every relationship; we can’t have light without darkness. That conflict, however, better serves us when it is approached creatively. Creativity here is intended in the most basic sense of the word; to build something, rather than tear it down."

Eve Ensler on How Trauma Makes Us Leave Our Bodies and Disconnect from Ourselves

Eve Ensler on How Trauma Makes Us Leave Our Bodies and Disconnect from Ourselves | Psychology & psychotherapy | Scoop.it
"Many of us have left our bodies -- we're not embodied creatures, we're not living inside our own muscles and cells and sinews."

At a rec
Joanna Boj's insight:

"I think — from my own life experience, and certainly what I’ve discovered in many women and men across the planet — is [that] when we’re traumatized, when we’re beaten, when we’re raped, we leave our bodies. We disconnect from ourselves. And if it’s true that one out of every three women on the planet have been raped or beaten, which is a U.N. statistic, that’s a billion women."

Laura M. Smith's curator insight, March 30, 9:18 PM

The dreams will prepare us for the difficult work around our trauma and when we are ready, they will take us down and through and will facilitate the alchemy necessary for us to come back into our bodies, into the richness of the felt experience we had forsaken.

Getting Over Procrastination

Can Self-Compassion Overcome Procrastination?

Can Self-Compassion Overcome Procrastination? | Psychology & psychotherapy | Scoop.it
Putting something off can trigger a downward negative spiral. But a recent study suggests that being kind to yourself can help you achieve your goals.
Joanna Boj's insight:

"Sirois suggests that interventions that focus on increasing self-compassion may be particularly beneficial for reducing the stress associated with procrastination because self-compassion allows a person to recognize the downsides of procrastination without entangling themselves in negative emotions, negative ruminations, and a negative relationship to themselves. People maintain an inner sense of well-being that allows them to risk failure and take action. "

Debunking the Myths about Boys and Emotions

Debunking the Myths about Boys and Emotions | Psychology & psychotherapy | Scoop.it
Research has found that boys can connect emotionally with others at a very deep level—we just have to make it safe for them to do so.
Joanna Boj's insight:

"Studies of infants have shown that neurologically, there isn’t much difference between boys’ and girls’ capacity for empathy. Yet, according to neuroscientists, because girls are allowed to express their emotions, their ability to identify and understand both their own and others’ emotions cultivates their empathetic skills beyond those of boys’."

Dlaczego niewiele pamiętamy z dzieciństwa? Naukowcy odpowiadają: mózgi małych dzieci produkują za dużo nowych neuronów

Dlaczego niewiele pamiętamy z dzieciństwa? Naukowcy odpowiadają: mózgi małych dzieci produkują za dużo nowych neuronów | Psychology & psychotherapy | Scoop.it
W końcu udało się wyjaśnić, dlaczego tak niewielu z nas pamięta cokolwiek sprzed swoich trzecich urodzin - informuje New Scientist. Okazuje się, że przyrost liczby neuronów nie zawsze pomaga w zapamiętywaniu nowych informacji - gdy jest zbyt gwałtowny, powoduje zapominanie.
Joanna Boj's insight:

"Zjawisko zanikania wspomnień z dzieciństwa jest nazywane amnezją dziecięcą. Do tej pory naukowcy uważali, że dopiero w wieku 3 - 4 lat mózg jest wystarczająco dobrze zorganizowany, by coś zapamiętać i dlatego nikt nie pamięta swoich pierwszych urodzin. Dzięki badaniom przeprowadzonym na myszach przez Katherine Akers, pracującą w Szpitalu Dzieci Chorych w Toronto, okazało się, że prawdopodobnie jest inaczej, a winien jest gwałtowny przyrost liczby neuronów."

""To feel oneself as not in relation, as not having a body and as not having a life or a future means that one is either lacking or questioning the very taken for granted qualities of human experience. This helps illuminate depression as a very powerful phenomenon which makes aberrant the most basic existential features of life.""

Why Clingy Partners Cling

Why Clingy Partners Cling | Psychology & psychotherapy | Scoop.it
Expert explanations for bad, mad love.
Joanna Boj's insight:

(...) it seems that people with an anxious attachment style should be particularly prone to bad, mad love. They push their partners to become too intimate too soon because they fear the love object will slip away. When these relationships come to an end, the anxiously attached are driven almost immediately into another one, which they similarly pursue until it reaches its own logical, unhappy conclusion.
