Anthony Hilton: Happiness is... not being obsessed by economic growth | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Some of the most stressed-out, miserable people I know earn millions a year. They are also likely to earn £1 million more this year than they did last. They expect that to make them feel good for a week or two until the stress reasserts itself.

Maslow’s Theory Revisited

Maslow’s Theory Revisited | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

A new article in the Review of General Psychology revisits Maslow's theory. According to its author, Mark Koltko-Rivera, Maslow's reasoning shifted over the course of his career. The shift occurred while he was studying peak experiences, which are "mystical experiences, aesthetic experiences, [and] emotional experiences involving nature." Maslow posited that a separate cognitive activity occurs during these experiences. Unlike the egocentrism of everyday thought patterns, the cognitive activity experienced during peak experience "[goes] beyond or above selfhood;" he called this "Being-cognition."

Out of Character: The Psychology of Good and Evil

Out of Character: The Psychology of Good and Evil | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
The derivation of the word ‘character’ comes from an ancient Greek term referring to the indelible marks stamped on coins. Once character was pressed into your mind or soul, people assumed it was fixed. But what modern science repeatedly shows is that this just isn’t the case. As we discuss in our book, everyone’s moral behavior is much more variable than any of us would have initially predicted.

Susceptibility for relapsing major depressive disorder can be calculated

The question if an individual will suffer from relapsing major depressive disorder is not determined by accident.
