Games People Play: Laughs at The Expense of Others - 0 views

  •  
    It is said in the 18th century the American general Israel Putnam once invited a British general to a novel test of nerves. Both were to sit on barrels of gunpowder, and the fuses were to bit lit. The last man to run away would be the winner. The unnamed British general accepted Putman's challenge. But as the fuses burned, he became increasingly fidgety while Putnam sat calmly, smoking his pipe. At the last moment the British general fled. Putnam stayed seated; he knew that both barrels were filled with onions. For several hundred years the Tower of London was home to a menagerie of wild animals, including a number of lions that later became the basis of a hoax. Dawk's News-Letter for April 2, 1698, announced: "Yesterday being the one April several persons were sent to the Tower of London to watch the annual lion-washing ceremony." This fictitious event continued to attract gullible visitors. Indeed, 158 years later, in 1856, many bought tickets to attend the ceremony. They were unaware of the significance of the date, April 1, or that the lions had been moved to the London Zoo 21 years before.

The Evolution of Trust : The golden rule - 0 views

  •  
    During World War I, peace broke out. It was Christmas 1914 on the Western Front. Despite strict orders not to chillax with the enemy, British and German soldiers left their trenches, crossed No Man's Land, and gathered to bury their dead, exchange gifts, and play games. Meanwhile: it's 2017, the West has been at peace for decades, and wow, we suck at trust. Surveys show that, over the past forty years, fewer and fewer people say they trust each other. So here's our puzzle: Why, even in peacetime, do friends become enemies? And why, even in wartime, do enemies become friends?

Rich People Can't Recognize Your Emotions (It's Science, Apparently) - Culture - GOOD - 15 views

  • people of upper-class status aren't very good at recognizing the emotions other people are feeling. The researchers speculate that this is because they can solve their problems, like the daycare example, without relying on others -- they aren't as dependent on the people around them. Maybe most fascinating is that "when people were made to feel that they were at a lower social class than they actually were, they got better at reading emotions," suggesting that even a temporary shift in context can account for behavioral changes.

    I am inclined to agree with you, it's a class thing rather than a money thing. we're subjected to a fair bit of it here in the UK, but are expected to 'play the game'

Instead Of Counting Blessings, Count Money To Feel Good - 2 views

  • those who had counted the money rated lower social distress than those who only counted paper.
  • Those who thought about the weather rated normal amounts of social distress or pain; those thinking about their finances experienced higher social distress when they were left out of the Cyperball game and reported greater pain from the hot water.
  • those counting money rated a lower intensity of the hot water and physical pain than those who counted paper. In addition, the researchers found that participants who counted out the bills rated themselves as feeling "strong" more often than the paper counting group.

Excessive internet use linked to depression, research shows - 22 views

  •  
    "people classified as internet addicts are more likely to be depressed than non-addicted users..." "This study reinforces the public speculation that over-engaging in websites that serve to replace normal social function might be linked to psychological disorders like depression and addiction."

    This is a classic... perhaps it is the fact that the people who are depressed find solace in spending excessive time on the Internet..? The link is not over use of the Internet causes depression or addiction but people prone to these disorders are drawn to spending time on the Net..
  •  
    This seems odd to me and I'm an internet addict. If you examine what the people were doing online, it's likely a clue as to what they feel is 'missing' from their lives - the story said "They also discovered that addicts spent proportionately more time browsing sexually gratifying websites, online gaming sites and online communities." Maybe they're looking for true love, fun, and that feeling of community. Maybe it's something wrong with our "mediated culture" that's forcing that hand. I believe that this topic will likely grow worse as time progresses, unless we all find a way to bond on a global-level.

    I completely agree with you on the need and benefits of treatment, as well as the need for private counselling. This is a constant requirement. Especially for those who have experienced various forms of trauma throughout their lives best online therapy reviews https://drmental.org/ has a lot of respect in my eyes, and he helps me cope with my ailments online.
