Today I want to share with you one truth about me. I never outright believe how people describe themselves. Not because I have any negative predisposition about their trustworthiness. On the contrary, I try always to be positive when I am meeting a new person. I want to believe that they will be proved to be a good character and I behave accordingly. The reasons are different and I will thoroughly explain below. At the same time, I don’t think that way because of egotistical reasons. Because the truth is that many times I don’t even trust my own beliefs about my emotions, my actions and the reasons behind so I have to question them. And this leaves open the possibility that I won’t come to a perfectly rational conclusion.
The last few years, neuroscientists, after studying how a brain “behaves” according to the environmental stimuli, looked further and focused on the interaction between two brains. When two bodies and two people are interacting. And guess what, they found neural pathways that up to that time didn’t know they exist. The new fundamental discipline was that our brains are designed to connect with the social brain of the other person. It’s the only part of the human anatomy that is designed to relate according to the internal state of another human.
This post is dedicated to the same titled book of David Buss and Cindy Meston… It was published on 2010 and is based on a combination of, on the one hand more than a thousand interviews, on the other hand of many experiments on female sexuality.
How to Develop Personality and Confidence I know, noone ever claimed that knows everything. But have you thought if sometimes we may act like that? And I don’t exclude myself. Anyway, I am not writing this article in order to blame anyone. In fact, I take for granted that all of us exhibit this behavior, […]
Imagine being in a faraway house in the countryside and it is night. Deep silence covers everything and in a strange cooperation with the darkness makes everything around your house unknown and scary. But when you are inside the property you don’t even think about all these. You feel safe and comfortable in a lighted […]
So the mind in the same way can be working as a great fitness indicator. Its complex and costly behaviors such as art and language might be advertising our fitness to potential mates. If sexual selection favored the minds that advertised high fitness, our creative intelligence could have evolved not because it gives us any survival advantage, instead because it is so difficult to be achieved and do not help more than moderately in our survival. It is not only humans that use complex behavior to advertise their fitness. Songbirds’ fitness indicators are repeated complicated melodious songs. Fruitflies do little dances in front of one another to reveal their genetic quality. To understand better, all these fitness indicators are what advertisements are to products. They are costly, excessive and luxurious. Dancing, language, humor, creative intelligence, all are evolutionary luxuries, none of them helped more than moderately to our survival. As fascist as it may sound, all these in the very end is another way to say “I am fit, my genes are good, mate with me”.
When we are young, you know, our parents try to educate us how we can be successful in this life because they want the best for us. Their knowledge on the subject raises several questions but, of course, we must appreciate their intentions. Through our own cravings for self-importance we are, also, looking around and […]
Has ever crossed your mind that with many of your best friends you liked each other from the very first moment you met? Or can you recall situations when you met a person on the road and s/he left you with a bad feeling without being able to understand why? Maybe it’s the way s/he […]
When we talk about emotions most people define them as something like feelings that are either pleasant, so they say that they like to have them, or unpleasant so they don’t want to have these feelings again. These feelings come from experiences or thoughts that are positive or negative. One way or the other they […]
All we need is love the women say. Love is blind people say. Love moves the world around is a famous saying. Our lives either we accept it or not have the pursuit of love as one of their greatest priorities. Sometimes we consciously try to avoid it even though there is a strong […]
