11 STASHED IDEAS

The Anima (female) or the Animus (male) are the sex and gender identities/roles that behave like Yin-Yang. The male and female energies are a balance influencing one another at all times. The Animus represents the male aspect in females, while the Anima is the female aspect in males. Society enforces strict gender stereotypes, which constrains normal psychological development.

The combined energy is called ‘syzygy’ or the divine couple, representing completion, unification and oneness.

High-context cultures e.g. Mediterranean, Slav, Central European, are understood through context, nonverbal cues, and between-the-lines interpretation of what is actually said. 

Here, the meanings are created often through what is not said e.g. in body language, silences and pauses, relationships and empathy.

Low-context cultures e.g. most Germanic and English-speaking countries, expect messages to be explicit and specific. Here, the emphasis is on sending and receiving accurate messages directly, and by being precise with spoken or written words.

Retail Therapy - What Is It And Does It Work?

Retail therapy is the process of trying to cheer yourself up by buying yourself gifts or treats. It’s both an intentional and an impulsive action and it gets triggered when we are sad or depressed.

The self-regulation theory says that you are constantly trying to balance your emotions, so if your feeling of sadness can be offset by giving in to an impulse purchase, you may decide to do it.

Studies show that while it does work with cheering people up, it may not work with stronger emotions, such as anger, or loneliness.
