Edge: YOU CAN'T BE A SWEET CUCUMBER IN A VINEGAR BARREL: A Talk with Philip Zimbardo

Edge: YOU CAN'T BE A SWEET CUCUMBER IN A VINEGAR BARREL: A Talk with Philip Zimbardo | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

(PHILIP ZIMBARDO:) For years I've been interested in a fundamental question concerning what I call the psychology of evil: Why is it that good people do evil deeds? I've been interested in that question since I was a little kid. Growing up in the ghetto in the South Bronx, I had lots of friends who I thought were good kids, but for one reason or another they ended up in serious trouble. They went to jail, they took drugs, or they did terrible things to other people. My whole upbringing was focused on trying to understand what could have made them go wrong.

Why we all need to practice emotional first aid

Why we all need to practice emotional first aid | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
We'll go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain. So why don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness? Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own, says Guy Winch. But we don’t have to. He makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies.

Jennifer Lynn's curator insight, April 5, 7:04 AM
You are absolutely right; anger can have an adverse effect on your health. First, it will affect your heart, and then there is a tendency of affecting blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar, etc. Anger creates stress and stress is the cause of our 90% illness. We need to learn how we can control our anger or show our anger in a healthy manner. But first, you need to know what is anger, how will you know that it is the characteristic of anger? 
There are 9 characteristics of Anger Behavior. Those are: 
• You don’t own or state your feelings directly—you slam doors, call people names, refuse to talk. 
• You may use sarcasm to express your anger and frustration. 
• You loose your temper and fly off the handle-have temper tantrums. 
• You intimidate others so they react defensively to you. 
 To know the rest of the 5 characteristics, go through:https://www.therapytribe.com/nine-charactertistics-of-anger-behavior/
