"Individual Differences Research"


All informal tests should be taken with a grain of salt. Especially short ones.

IDR Laboratories has some tests based on peer-reviewed research which are designed to measure what guides your personal moral foundations, what principles you find important. Some of their tests appear more ... serious than others, while others (like the Pooh test) verge on the whimsical. But the moral foundations and political views tests seem to have some worth.

I mean, OK, there's the usual obvious problems. A lot of these questions are too simple to be answered with an agree/disagree slider. "America has gone too far in being tough on crime." Um, America is FUCKING SCHIZOID about crime. We throw the book at people for victimless crimes and fill prisons with non-violent offenders to guara... show more


 
City life damages mental health in ways we’re just starting to understand | Popular Science
We’ve long known that the environments we live and work in impact our physical health—and that we can be harmed by things we may not even realize we’re being exposed to, like lead or air pollution. It’s also not a new idea that our physical surroundings may weigh on our mental health as well.

Does Marriage Really Improve Sexual Satisfaction? | Psychology Today Australia https://www.psychologytoday.com/au/blog/happy-singlehood/201905/does-marriage-really-improve-sexual-satisfaction

Unmarried couples living apart have the highest levels of sexual satisfaction while married couples are among the least satisfied, finds a new German study (n=3,207) of sexual satisfaction among seven relationship-status groups. Only unmarried individuals with no partner scored lower than married.

Social media effect 'tiny' in teenagers, large study finds | BBC News

The effects of social media use on teenage life satisfaction are limited and probably "tiny", a study of 12,000 UK adolescents suggests.
Family, friends and school life all had a greater impact on wellbeing, says the University of Oxford research team.

People’s Sense Of Control Over Their Actions Is Reduced At A Fundamental Level When They’re Angry Or Afraid – Research Digest

During major bouts of anger or fear, people can end up taking extreme and sometimes violent actions. But they often say that, in the moment, they didn’t feel responsible for those actions – they “lost control” or “saw red”. In the UK, under certain circumstances, a person accused of murder can even claim that this “loss of control” led to them killing their victim. If successful, this defence can reduce charges to manslaughter.

Now the first study of its kind suggests that there is some truth to these claims. Participants put into a fearful or angry state really do seem to have a reduced sense of agency, according to a paper published recently in Experimental Brain Research, raising questions about the accountability of people going through extreme emotions.

TL;DR: If you find yourself reliving distressing memories, it may be because you aren’t getting quality sleep.
The findings suggest that normal sleepers activate a markedly different brain circuit while reliving emotional memories from the distant past as compared to when they are exposed to novel emotional experiences. In patients with insomnia, however, the brain circuits recruited with reliving distant emotional memories overlapped with the circuits recruited during a novel emotional experience....

Recently listened to Hidden Brain's podcast episode on personality tests. I definitely understand why many people are skeptical of personality tests... the majority of them are frivolous and made up for entertainment value, and even the ones that have some actual psychological theory behind them are often misused, with conclusions being drawn well outside the bounds of the original intent of the method.

I've personally realized a lot of positive growth from understanding my own Meyers-Briggs Type. For example, as an Extrovert, I have a tendency to think aloud and seek energy from interactions with others; learning that not everyone does their best thinking that way means I am now much more mindful about giving Introverts more time to think and recharge, listening and not steamrolling them in meetings or conversations, and in my personal life, forcing myself to stop and appreciate silence.

There are many other examples, but the general principle is... show more

Aphantasia: Ex-Pixar chief Ed Catmull says 'my mind's eye is blind' | BBC News

The former president of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios says he has a "blind mind's eye".
Most people can close their eyes and conjure up images inside their head such as counting sheep or >imagining the face of a loved one.
But Ed Catmull, 74, has the condition aphantasia, in which people cannot visualise mental images at all.

Screen time -- even before bed -- has little impact on teen well-being | Science Daily

Data from more than 17,000 teenagers show little evidence of a relationship between screen time and well-being in adolescents. The study casts doubt on the widely accepted notion that spending time online, gaming, or watching TV, especially before bedtime, can damage young people's mental health.
"Online, gaming, or watching TV," fine. But cyber-bullying, coercion, and watching nasty videos can have a massive impact. It would have been nice if someone related to the research had mentioned this.

Intellectually humble people tend to possess more knowledge, study finds

People who are intellectually humble tend to score better on a test of general knowledge, according to new research published in The Journal of Positive Psychology. The new findings also provide some insights into the particular traits that could explain the link between intellectual humility and knowledge acquisition.

The Debate


6 months before the Purulia Arms Drop I participated in an Ananda Marga debate about whether terrorism could ever be justified. Ananda Marga was a pacific revolutionary organization that denounced both the materialistic philosophies of capitalism as well as communism. The focus of the ideology was primary yoga and meditation but there was a lot of emphasis on social justice and activism as well. My friends in Ananda Marga were fans of the libertarian socialist ideas behind the Mexican Revolution of 1910, the Spanish revolution of the 30’s and most especially the Zapatista revolution in Mexico which was still occurring at the time of this debate. Nobody in the debate could really defend terrorism. We evaded the idea of terrorism and focused on the justification of using force against the state by violent revolution. However, the other side said our idea of revolution was not terrorism because it is a declared political and revolutionary military movement which does not target civilians like terrorist attacks. We were ideological rebels, but nobody was aggr... show more


 

Nocturne


According to yoga and other schools of classical Indian philosophy there are 4 main states of consciousness: wakefulness, dream, sleep, and turiiya- total union with the Atman. Wakefulness is where the sensory-intellectual mind is entertained by perceptions of the physical and social world as well as our abstract thoughts about these realms. The dream state is mostly a recycling of these perceptions and memories; most impressions are discarded through jumbled dream scenarios whereas some dreams may actually be attempting to reveal aspects of one’s inner life beyond the sensory-intellectual mind. The sleeping state of consciousness is where the sensory-intellectual mind and even its activities of dream are suspended. Most people have no awareness of what happens in this state of consciousness, rather it is experienced as a state of unconsciousness. This is because most people have no practical, living awareness of any reality beyond the sensory-intellectual mind with the names and forms of the things we experience in the mundane world. It is only when medita... show more


 
Had this problem for almost a year- I think I've solved who it is.

I'm #building a #cabin, but I don't live nearby- I live about 25 minutes away in the city. I work on this thing every day after my normal job. I'm putting in 14 hour days between my regular job and this cabin build. Occasionally, I leave rope laying on the ground, or a pair of pliers, or an extension cord when I leave. In a perfect society, I should be able to leave everything how I want it and come back the next day to find it where I left it. But we don't live in that world. Anyway, I've been pretty good picking up everything and locking it in my shipping container before I leave every night, but occasionally I miss something (usually, it's dark by the time I get out of there).

Last year, I had 2 extension cords stolen. Before that, I had a chain hoist stolen, and one of my heavy chains. I thought they took two more chains, but ended up finding them in... show more

Is The $34,000 Postpartum Depression Drug Injection Safe and Effective?... On March 19th, 2019, the FDA gave market approval to an intravenously administered drug targeting women diagnosed with postpartum depression. The newly hyped drug is comprised of a proprietary form of a synthetic hormone (brexanalone) and will be sold under the brand name Zulresso by Sage Therapeutics, who sponsored all the drug's pre-approval clinical trials. It will cost $7,450 per vial, with a full course of treatment estimated to cost about $34,000. It is slated to hit the market this June.
Brexanalone is a synthetic analogue of a naturally occurring hormone called allopregnanolone which is synthesized in the human brain,and commonly measured in the urine.It is known to have anesthetic, hypnotic,and sedative properties,and levels of the hormone have been found to drop after pregnancy in the postpartum window coinciding with the onset of the "baby blues," as it was once known before the advent of the clinical term postpartum depression.

Perhaps the #musicians of #diaspora can help me with this question.

Is there a body of study around a listener’s tendency to mishear beats at the beginning of certain songs that are otherwise in straightforward time signatures? Is there an accepted terminology for this phenomenon?

I’m not talking about music that’s in complex time signatures or incorporates complex polyrhythms.

For example, the beginning of “Spirits in the Material World” by The Police is an example of an instrumental introduction that nearly always confounds my ears, with its absence of emphasis on downbeats by any of the instruments.

That song has always been fascinating to me by the slight dislocation in perception that occurs when my brain finally places the rhythms correctly at the chorus. It seems to me The Police knew exactly what they were doing with this ambiguity.

"Mind to Matter" and the Mind/Body Connection....Electricity of Life....The connection of the mind to the body is an arena of constantly growing scientific investigation. To an unprecedented degree, mainstream medicine today acknowledges that the mind has a profound effect on one’s physical well-being.The mind affects matter,whether it’s the so-called placebo effect or the increasingly evident physical impact of emotional stress.A remarkable scientist who has explored the mind/body connection is Dawson Church, the author of the recent book Mind to Matter,which suggests vast, untapped abilities of the mind to affect healing.In part one of this two-part presentation,we asked Dawson to begin with an introduction to his earlier book,The Genie in Your Genes.

Das Zweite Britische Empire (Deutsch)

Beim Untergang des Empires wurde ein weltweites Netz von Offshore-Gebieten geschaffen, um die finanziellen Interessen der City of London zu bewahren. Deren Zweck? Das Verbergen enormen Vermögens hinter obskuren finanziellen Strukturen auf entfernten Inseln. Heute liegt bis zur Hälfte des globalen Offshore-Vermögens in britischen Offshore-Territorien.
Wie ist das zustande gekommen? Welchen Einfluss hat die Offshore-Welt heute auf uns alle? Dieser Dokumentarfilm erforscht und ermittelt dies auf eindrückliche Weise.

WARNING: this rabbit hole is deep

The Spider’s Web: Britain’s Second Empire, is a documentary film that shows how Britain transformed from a colonial power into a global financial power. At the demise of empire, City of London financial interests created a web of secrecy jurisdictions that captured wealth from across the globe and hid it in a web of offshore islands. Today, up to half of global offshore wealth is hidden in British jurisdictions and Britain and its dependencies are the largest global players in the world of international finance.

"The study showed that sensitivity to facial cues for fear and anger decrease as people age, but the ability to detect happiness cues stays the same."

Many of my female friends and I have noted how freeing it is to get older--in part because we find ourselves simply caring less about what other people "think". This study would suggest that de-sensitization is a function of aging rather than of all that therapy I've done. (Although, the therapy has certainly helped.)

To Emote or Not to Emote that is the question

OCD isn’t about being over-tidy. I had intrusive thoughts about sex | Rose Cartwright | Opinion | The Guardian

Gradually, I began to witness something I’d only ever known on an intellectual level – that thoughts enter and leave the mind of their own accord, passing through consciousness like weather through the sky, or images on TV. I was not the author of them, I was the observer. For someone once so convinced they’d perpetrated their thoughts that they wanted to die to stop them, this was no small thing.
This, above all, is the foundation of good mental health. So many times, we run into problems because we think something and then believe that thought without question.

A Quote From Writer & Author Andrew Vachss


“We know the root cause of our societal ills and evil-the trans-generational maltreatment of children. We know today’s victim can become tomorrow’s predator. We know that while many heroic survivors refuse to imitate the oppressor, the chains remain unbroken as abused children turn the trauma inward and lose their souls to self-inflicted wounds-from drug and alcohol abuse to depression to suicide. Their lives are never what they could have-should have-been.

We know the enemy…but where is the counter attack? More pious whining? More networking? More conferences? More unfocussed, blundering incompetence? There is a Rosetta Stone to societal decay. Child abuse, simply, modifies development of the brain. It alters “processing” so that the abused child, (of whatever age) assimilates and responds to stimuli in distinctly aberrant ways. Most of the those ways are self destructive. Some destroy others. All eventually, destroy us…as a country and eventually, even as a species.”... show more
