Confidence and arrogance in relation to others

  • Confidence brings people together; arrogance rejects people and is used as a means to demoralize others.
  • Truly confident people don't feel to need to compare themselves to others - they’re happy being on their own unique path; arrogant people feel the need to shine over everybody else, often to the detriment of others.

Creativity And Awareness

The practical application of creativity requires the help of our logical left side of the brain.

Although we perceive that our creative right side of the brain is solely responsible for all of our creative ideas, it is not. Creativity requires a particular level of understanding of the knowledge at hand. Our logical side analyzes the situation, defines the problem, and hands over the data to be expressed by the creative right brain.

Confidence And Creativity

Being creative requires you to do things you've never done before or seek the unknown. It is a risk in itself and a lot of people are not willing to accept the risk that comes with the creative process or are just afraid.

Confidence is the key. Having confidence in yourself and your ideas will allow yourself to accept the risks, calculated or not.

Kinds Of Emotions

  • In Psychology, emotions can be either the result of an experience of a situation, or a certain perception of changes that occur within our bodies.
  • There are higher emotions like self-awareness, self-consciousness, and an increased sense of empathy or compassion for others.
  • Moral emotions include pride, guilt, shame and embarrassment.

Reasons We Experience Emotions

Emotions are a basic response to change, both internal and external, sometimes simultaneously. While our mood lasts for hours or even days, emotions are fleeting, like waves.

Emotions are a spontaneous, motivating agent of change, making us act in our most natural, human way, before the mind comes in the picture, which looks at other signals before reacting.
