Genetics of Psychological Well-Being

Although it may seem surprising at first, our genes seem to have a much greater impact on our happiness than money or family. Researchers suspect that they define a kind of basic level of life satisfaction, which can then change up or down. In the meantime, numerous studies suggest this direction.

What happens in the brain when we’re happy? Which brain regions, which messengers are involved in our high feelings? All the books have already been written about these questions, they cannot be explained in a few paragraphs in detail. The neurobiology of Happiness is complex – and like most processes in the brain, we have not yet fully understood it. Our reward system plays a central role in our feelings of happiness and the urge to always turn to the very things that really make us happy. It consists of a whole range of brain areas, which communicate dopamine with each other above all through the messenger substance.

Positive Psychology Theory

These brain regions could also play an important role in terms of continuing happiness. For example, studies show that people in whom the ventral striatum and the prefrontal cortex are particularly persistently responsive to positive stimuli are ultimately happier through life. In other words, both areas fire tirelessly even if one presents them with a positive experience after another.

However, it is difficult to picking individual factors and determine their size of influence. Looking at their effects at the societal level, it becomes clear that they sometimes contribute less to our happiness than we have assumed. For example, children are quite a double-edged sword in terms of satisfaction: Surely there are many people who regard their children as the best thing that has ever happened to them in their lives. On the other hand, you can be the source of stress and problems. Overall, according to studies, the happiness difference between parents and childless persons is not particularly great. The impact of young people on life satisfaction also depends on numerous environmental factors such as the financial situation and the reconciliation of family and work.

In addition to professional qualification, more complex requirements but also social skills will play a greater role. The new positioning of the employees in the production process can only be successfully managed through modified qualification strategies, new approaches for acquiring knowledge and competence in the workplace and digital learning techniques.

In particular, an interdisciplinary qualification with the know of how the engineering sectors will be important. The variety of possible fields of application associated with the industry sets limits for standardized training.

They keep the insulin level up and prevent fat from being removed. Isolated carbohydrates give you nothing but calories.

Special Features In Dealing With Depression

-Sufferers feel incapable of being small, guilty, ugly and useless

-Concentration, perseverance and the ability to rejoice is lacking you

-Accept that the diseased person cannot immediately change this state from his or her own powers

Many depressed feel inwardly empty, exhausted and powerless. In this situation, you need a precondition (for example, in the form of an initial illness) and affection. Although patients are not particularly encouraged by their behaviour (lack of drive, pessimism, devaluation of their own person and others), they are especially reliant on the appreciation of their environment. They often starve to the right. Keep in mind, therefore, that the behaviour of the patient that is often difficult for the environment is not directed against you personally, but is the expression or consequence of the basic disease. Give the patient feedback that will help him improve his or her self-image. Be honest about this, as the sick person may doubt your sincerity.

Always point out to the patient that depression is today one of the most successfully treatable mental illnesses. In case of proper therapy, a visible improvement is usually already apparent within a few weeks.

 

Famous Psychological Experiments That We Have Heard

Each of us has already heard about the psychological experiments. Of these famous experiments of psychology that cause goosebumps. Like Stanley Milgram’s. Who successfully instructed his subjects to put violent electric shocks on foreign people. They were ordinary people who did it.

“Rats and humans”- Already the title is program, because the American author Lauren Salter, by the way herself psychologist, kidnapped very skilfully, humorously and sometimes a bit cynical in the often skurill-looking world of psychology and her actors. Or as it is in the original title so beautiful is called openning Skinner’s Box: She opens the box, one for lay mysterious. And that makes them extremely unconventional. For Lauren Slater not only describes ten of the most important psychological experiments of the twentieth century and arranges them historically, but also presents the test makers in detail, describes their Vita, both professionally and privately, and always tries to extent to which the experiments have influenced the lives of the creators themselves.

psychological experiments

Skillfully, the author breathes life into the experiments, brings them out of the world of science and makes them tangible. She does not shy away from repeating some of the experiments presented in her own body. All of this makes them so good, so skillfully, that they can be followed as readers. One creeps through the black box of a B. F. Skinner, who successfully showed that the behaviour of rats could be conditioned by reward and thus also offered conclusions for human behavior.

That man is directed less by free will than by the prospect of reward. The story about this experiment is particularly spiced up by the fact that Slater is following the rumors about Skinner’s older daughter. Rumours suggesting that Skinner should have put his daughter in a box in the first two years of her life to make her behave.
