Love & Family


Familects are part of the backstage talk we use with people closest to us. They're a home slang and becomes integral over time in your inner circle.

Familects help us feel like family. The in-group language nurtures a feeling of intimacy and establishes identity. Sharing one's familect is also an act of welcoming outsiders into one's clan.

Love & Family

Research found that people with a higher sense of well-being had more frequent and longer interactions.

  • They had meaningful conversations two-and-a-half times more often than those with the least healthy social biomes.
  • They had two-thirds of interactions with close friends and family, where those with the least healthy social biomes less than half.
  • Most surprising, they felt good, connected, and happy to be alone.

  • In the 18th-century, dozens of writers took to a new form of fiction that focused on ordinary things – coins, banknotes, shoes, carriages, dolls. 
  • These stories brought things to life, granting them their own voices. 
  • Today literary scholars call them “object-narratives” or “it-narratives”, so named after their inanimate protagonists.

Most narcissists do not fall in the two extremes of angels (zero narcissism) or demons (impairing disorder) but are somewhere in between, a grey area where they exhibit a certain level of narcissism. This makes diagnosis difficult in most cases.

Psychologists have identified two broad types of narcissism, the grandiose and the vulnerable.
