Hungry Again? Your Memory May Be to Blame

Hungry Again? Your Memory May Be to Blame | Psychology and Behavior | Scoop.it
Hunger would seem to be a fairly straightforward instinct: Depending on how much you eat, you either will or you won't be hungry afterward. As it turns out, our relationship to food may not be so simple.

A new study, published this week in the journal PLoS ONE, adds a new wrinkle by suggesting our short-term memory also may play a role in appetite. Several hours after a meal, the study authors found, people’s hunger levels were predicted not by how much they’d eaten, but rather by how much food they’d seen in front of them—in other words, how much they remembered eating.

Casual sex linked to teen depression

Casual sex linked to teen depression | Psychology and Behavior | Scoop.it

Casual sex increases a teenager’s odds for clinical-level depression nearly threefold. The effects are the same for boys and girls, though younger teens (13-15 years old) who had so-called “nonromantic sex” faced substantially greater risks for depression. Dating alone was not linked to depressive symptoms.
Published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology, the the study provides evidence that “context is key” when trying to understand how teen relationships and sex affect their well-being.

Natalie Stewart's curator insight, December 27, 2012 10:56 AM

Music is everywhere. It is impossible to ignore it or avoid it. It has played a significant role in every civilization and people’s sense of identity. As Nietzsche wrote in Twilight of the Idols: “Without music, life would be a mistake”.  

Mood is associated with emotions and emotions are what brings us to music in the first place, so there must be some connection between our musical taste and our personality.

 

Heather Ramsey's curator insight, February 6, 2013 9:05 PM

This article briefly discusses why we listen to music and suggests that the type of music we listen to reveals information about our personality. Do you agree with what your favorite music says about you?

The psychology of logo design

The psychology of logo design | Psychology and Behavior | Scoop.it

The psychology of logo design is one of the most oversimplified aspects behind the process of creating a logo. It’s usually associated exclusively with the choice of colors but is actually much more than that.

While “logo design” refers to the activity of creating a logo, and the term “logo” is used to refer to any symbol created for the purpose of identification, the “psychology of logo design” is the study of any meaning that can be seen in a logo other than the meaning of identification.
