Connection With The Characters

We get drawn to the lives of the characters portrayed on the show that also fuels our binge watching experience.

2 types of Character Involvement:

  1. Identification - it is when we see ourselves to the characters portaying in a show.

read so your brain won't shrink 🤓

I am very much guilty of binge watching a tv show in one sitting 😑. I even have this special segment on my IG stories of #SeriesReviewNobodyAsksFor where I must say a lot rely on it if it was binge worthy. But now I am slowly rebuilding my reading habits and I am so glad I found deepstash.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
