Don’t Be Your Own Worst Enemy (Part Two) ~Self Assignments~

  A number of physical exercises can help shift our unsettled emotional states to calmer, more relaxed feelings—as well as to actually alter to some degree the body’s physiological responses. For maximum effect, they should become part of your daily routine. Don’t wait until a crisis emerges and then plunge into them, looking for a quick fix, although two of them can also be resorted to when emotions are running hot. They take only five or 10 minutes each—a small…

Don’t Be Your Own Worst Enemy (Part One)

Stressed-out feelings are very often stoked by self-sabotaging self-talk. It is very easy to catastrophize the situation, along the lines of “I’m going to have a nervous breakdown. It’s absolutely impossible for me to do this.” Off-kilter beliefs such as these are guaranteed to keep the vicious cycle of stress running at full throttle. It’s difficult—if not impossible—to address the true external cause of your stressful feelings without first getting them under control. Can you strengthen your resilience to stress…

Lessons Learnd From Other Studies Of Science

As the least developed study of science, psychology has much to learn from the more established metascientific disciplines of history, philosophy, and sociology of science. The most important lesson comes from knowing the general stages that any scientific discipline goes through in its path toward maturity. Guiding the discussion of the development of each study of science, I make use of but modify Nicholas Mullins’s stage model of theory or network development. Mullins argued for four potentially overlapping stages of…

Cum convingem?

Când oamenii îşi împărtăşesc pasiunea sau entuziasmul pentru ceva, devin atractivi şi reuşesc mai uşor să-i convingă pe ceilalţi. Foloseşte-ţi propria putere de convingere, începând cu ceea ce te entuziasmează sau te interesează din mesajul tău. Dacă nu eşti convins de ceea ce doreşti, de ce ar face-o ceilalţi? încearcă să fragmentezi mesajul în părţi mai mici şi să vezi dacă poţi să descoperi unele dintre aspectele care îţi provoacă pe deplin interesul sau entuziasmul. De exemplu, să presupunem că…

Deep Work Is Valuable

As Election Day lingered in 2012, activity at the New York Times site spiked, as is ordinary amid snapshots of national significance. Be that as it may, this time, something was unique. An uncontrollably lopsided part of this movement—more than 70 percent by a few reports—was going to a solitary area in the sprawling space. It wasn’t a front-page breaking news story, and it wasn’t analysis from one of the paper’s Pulitzer Prize– winning reporters; it was rather a blog…

Eficienţa personală in problemele de adaptare

Abordarea din perspectiva eficienţei personale a problemelor psihologice si a tratamentului lor pleacă de la premisa că indivizii devin stresaţi, nefericiţi sau anxioşi, intră în conflict cu alţii, au diverse probleme emoţionale şi de adaptare atunci când au expectanţe nerealiste privind propriul comportament şi comportamentul celorlalţi, atunci când nu estimează corect anumite rezultate sau consecinţe, atunci când cred ca nu poate fi facut nimic pentru a controla evenimentele importante din viaţă sau se cred incapabili sa facă ceva pentru a…

Eficienta personală- Cum sa fim mai eficienti in orice situatie

Oamenii au tendinţa de a se angaja în comportamente despre care cred că le vor aduce ce-şi doresc si pe care cred că le pot face. Alegem acele actiuni şi acele strategii despre care credem că le vom putea duce la bun sfârşit, şi nu acele actiuni care ne depasesc posibilitătile. Câteva teorii psihologice importante s-au aplecat asupra problemelor competenţei percepute, a eficientei personale si a controlului. Teoria eficienţei personale (Bandura 1977; 1982) se asază în această tradiţie a teoriilor…
