Explosive Emotions

Violent emotions sometimes go out of control.

Jealousy, fear, anger and even love can suddenly turn explosive.

Suppression of such emotions often becomes the norm, as people prefer to avoid fully experiencing them or responding to them. This redirects or channels the emotions into other areas and physical activities.

Example: Small children who are afraid of the dark often talk or sing to get their minds off the fear.

Where Do Suppressed Emotions Go?


History of the Beauty Business
  • Cosmetics have been used since ancient times. Often they were used in religious ceremonies - as seen in ancient Egypt - or as cultural identification. Egypt's influence impacted the practices and uses of cosmetics throughout the rest of the ancient world.
  • The spread of Christianity with its denunciations of pride and vanity coupled with a changing ideal of modesty also impacted the standards of beauty. While cosmetics did not totally fall out of favor, their use seems to have been greatly reduced and their use largely restricted to courtesans, actresses, the wealthy, and assorted "loose" women.
  • During the Renaissance high born women including Queen Elizabeth, used them to whiten their faces into an ideal of pale perfection.

Over time, cosmetics moved a little closer to more common usage.

A microphone is a device that converts acoustic power into electric power, sound waves to electrical voltages, then converted into sound waves that are amplified through speakers.

We associate microphones often with the music and the entertainment industry, but the device can be dated back as early as the 1600s when scientists figured out that they could amplify sound.

Motivational intensity

An individual's motivational intensity is how strongly they are compelled in approaching or avoiding certain things.

It is an important variable that affects the scope of attention because an individual can experience "pleasantness" and have low motivational states - they're not really determined to pursue anything; however, those who have "desire" have higher motivational states thus are more focused on completing a specific goal.

These titles can mean there's a certain level of expertise and expectation that you will know what you're doing.

But it can also be an indication that the company does not know what they want.

Apocalypse Now: Aqua Edition

Sea-level rise and eventual flooding is a growing possibility that has been written in many ancient books and stories.

The Noah’s Ark, the Sumerian flood, or the ancient Hindu story of Manu and Matsya depicted an Apocalyptic water crisis thousands of years ago and had a common theme: The Wrath Of God.

How We Copy The Choices Of Others

While eating out, shopping, or during a donation drive, some of us make choices that we wouldn’t normally make.

Studies on consumer behaviour show that while some would mimic or copy the behaviour of the person they observe, some would choose to do the exact opposite.

Resilience During A Global Crisis
  • Resilience is the ability to handle and recover from stressful situations and crises. It is not simply coping up with adversity, but to experience growth and flowering, finding meaning and purpose, experiencing self-awareness and tasting life in all its flavours.
  • The ongoing pandemic has now made the knowledge of ‘resilience’ required reading. Adversity can strike anytime to anyone, and most of us have experienced anxiety, worry, disappointment, shame, grief, frustration, or sadness.

A possible explanation of why people develop unhealthy perfectionism is that they grow up without a sense of support, safety, and nurturing. Another reason can be a reaction to childhood trauma or extreme cultural expectations, where appearing perfect is a strategy for survival.

The consequence of destructive perfectionism is often deep-seated emotional difficulties and unresolved traumatic experiences that might eventually turn into a potentially severe depression.

Procrastination is one habit that most of us have. We tend to delay finishing a task or a project not because we are lazy but because we have negative emotions surrounding the task - boredom, anxiety, depression, and more.

It is a chronic cycle that rewards our present self with a feeling of momentarily relief which could only lead to us procrastinating more often than needed.
