How did the human heart become associated with love? And how did it turn into the shape we know today? |
In 1977, the heart icon became a verb with the "I Love NY" logo that was created to boost morale for a city in crisis. The symbol extended the meaning of the heart beyond romantic love to include civic feelings, thus opening the gateway to new uses.
Once the heart sign became a verb, it could be used to connect people, places, or things.

People are biased whether they are conscious of it or not. Studies show that even people who deem they are not discriminatory when put in situations where they must act quickly, hidden biases can often dictate their actions and override their intentions.
When having vulnerable decision points the If/Then tactic gives us an advanced plan of action instead of making rash decisions. It helps create an impulse buffer between frustration and one's decision-making process.
