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…

The Reaction of Other Metasciences to the Psychology of Science

Historians of science traditionally have not been much concerned with the general psychological traits and motives involved in the history of science. Ever since Whewell, many historians have documented and described the major events and trends in the history of science, and some, of course, have documented the lives of particular scientists, delving into psychological forces. But on the whole historians have not moved beyond narrative histories of individuals’ lives; they have generally avoided “psychologizing” about individual scientists or even…

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…

De ce femeile au mai mult succes in cariera decat barbatii?

  Cu toate ca unele descoperiri aratasera ca baietii sunt mult mai agresivi si au o aptitudine mai mare pentru matematica si pentru viziunea spatiala decat fetele, si ca fetele, la randul lor, au capacitati verbale superioare, studiile ulterioare au aratat ca aceste diferente sunt fie neglijabile, fie mai complexe decat par initial. La inceputul secolului XX  a avut loc prima cercetare privind diferentele dintre sexe realizata de psihologi de sex feminin. In anii 1970, studiul celor doua sexe tinde…

Unul dintre cele mai importante mesaje in dezvoltarea personalitatii este ca modul in care-ti vorbesti va decide cat de bine te vei descurca in viata. Exercitiu Aminteste-ti de o  perioada in viata ta in care lucrurile nu mergeau foarte bine. Daca cineva te-ar intreba cum faceai fata situatiei, ai raspunde ceva de genul: “Mizerabil”! sau ….”Nu prea rau…” (insa pe un ton scazut). Asta nu numai ca le-ar pune cellorlalti ca nu te simteai prea grozav, ci te-ar fort ape…
