The Quest For Assertiveness

A Google search of ‘How to be more assertive’ returns more than 22 million results. Women have more trouble with assertiveness than men do.

A study by the Gender Action Portal at Harvard University found that, in salary negotiations, women concede earlier than men, anticipate greater backlash, and are discouraged by others’ perceptions of assertiveness as a non-feminine trait.

Talking To Ourselves: Our Inner Voice

Most of us think that talking to ourselves mentally is a normal thing. But some people don’t have an ‘inner monologue’ with themselves and rely on visualizing what they are planning or thinking.

Brownian Motion

Brownian Motion is the random motion of particles in a fluid, as they collide with other atoms or molecules. It is also called pedesis, which is a Greek term for leaping. Many visible, macroscopic particles can be influenced by invisible, microscopic particles, like pollen grains moving by themselves in water.

Brownian Motion is named after Scottish botanist Robert Brown, who described the same in 1827. His work remained unknown till Albert Einstein published a paper in 1905 explaining the discontinuous structure of matter and the existence of atoms and molecules.

Ghosts are a mainstream area of belief

A ghost is seen as a bodyless soul or spirit of a dead person or animal.

As unlikely as it may seem, ghosts and hauntings are a mainstream area of belief. Studies in the UK and the USA show that between 30% and 50% of the population believe in ghosts. Belief in ghosts appears to be global. Since ghosts are contrary to nature's laws as we understand them, it calls for an explanation.

Plato: the influential philosopher
