Social media makes breakups worse, study says

According to a 2017 study, 71% of people reported feeling better (rediscovery of self and positive emotions) about 11 weeks after a breakup. But social media complicates this healing process.Even if you "unfriend", block, or unfollow, social media algorithms can create upsetting encounters with your ex-partner or reminders of the relationship that once was.Researchers at University of Colorado Boulder suggest that a "human-centered approach" to creating algorithms can help the system better unde...

The psychology of infidelity: Why do we cheat?

Results of a 2005 study show that there is a significant difference between cheaters and non-cheaters when it comes to the Big Five model of personality traits.Poor self control, selfishness, anger, boredom, and attention-seeking are the most common reasons a person is unfaithful in their relationship.However, a 2018 study suggests that even infidelity, which is inherently a selfish behavior, is more than it seems - requiring an in-depth look at both the personality traits in each person in the ...

There is scientific proof that foot fetishes are normal

A fetish is a sexual fixation on a specific object, activity, or body part that becomes absolutely necessary to a person's sexual satisfaction.According to recent research, 1 in 7 people have fantasized about feet in a sexual way at least once in their lives. Prominent researcher Wilder Penfield, who established the "body image map" in the 1950s, explains that the sensory perception for our feet is located directly adjacent to the sensory perception area for our genitalia - which can explain the...

Let’s talk sex: The science of your brain on dirty talk

One in five people in a new study admit that they have stopped sex cold because of the dirty talk.90% of the participants felt aroused by the right erotic talk with their partner.Dirty talk activates the erogenous zones of the brain: the hypothalamus and amygdala. By electrifying our most powerful sex organs, our brains, research has shown that provocative conversation has the ability to add serious sizzle to our sex lives. Yet, it's a highly subjective form of bedroom art that comes in many...

Why people post ‘couple photos’ as their social media profile pictures

As you scroll through your Facebook news feed, you see it: Your friend has posted a new profile picture. But instead of a picture of just your friend, it's a couple photo – a picture of your friend and their romantic partner.“Why would someone choose that as their profile picture?" you wonder.We are social psychology researchers interested in understanding people's behavior in close relationships and on social media. Our research and that of other scholars provides insight into why people use th...

Is asexuality psychological or biological?

The term "asexuality" refers to someone who does not feel sexual attraction to others and/or has a lack of interest in sex. According to a UK survey on sexuality, 1% of the population identifies as asexual, although some researchers suspect it's even more. While research on asexuality is limited right now, there has recently been a surge of interest in asexuality with Brock University Professor Anthony Bogaert and Stanford scholar Karli Cerankowski making strides in research on this topic. Stud...

Is masturbation the new cold & flu medicine?

Achieving orgasm through masturbation provides a rush of feel-good hormones (such as dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin) and can re-balance our levels of cortisol (a stress-inducing hormone). This helps our immune system function at a higher level. The surge in "feel-good" hormones also promotes a more relaxed and calm state of being, making it easier to achieve restful sleep, which is a critical part in maintaining a high-functioning immune system. Just as bad habits can slow your immune system,...

Using the logic of neuroscience to heal from a breakup

According to a study from anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher, when humans fall in love, regions of the brain that are rich in dopamine (a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in feeling pleasure) light up and parts of the brain that are used in fear and social judgment are operating at lower rates. The surge and decline of hormones in our brains when we experience a breakup are also similar to those felt when withdrawing from an addiction to drugs - and the pain felt during a breakup has appeared...

How to Kill Innovation in India using Customs

I did my engineering from 1998 to 2012. It used to be very difficult to get the latest and greatest in the electronics world from the local market. My go-to way to get something interesting was to apply for freebies from companies in the USA, whether it was PICs from Microchip or the latest Linux CDs. I would apply and then wait. It would take time but it would arrive at home safely. I used to get frustrated by this waiting time. Sometime it would take up-to three months. Twenty years later ship...

Should you grow a beard? Here's how women perceive bearded men

A new study found that women perceive men with facial hair to be more attractive as well as physically and socially dominant.Women tend to associate more masculine faces with physical strength, social assertiveness, and formidability. Women who display higher levels of "moral disgust," or feelings of repugnance toward taboo behaviors, are more likely to prefer hairy faces. None The beard is an ever contentious subject in the domain of male grooming practices. Love them or hate them, new resea...

The path to less stress? Strategic pessimism.

The centuries old philosophy of Stoicism may hold the key to a kind of happiness that is more grounded in reality.The two main ideas of stoic happiness are that problems are caused by your reactions to events not the events themselves, and the only things you can control are your thoughts and your actions.Choosing strategic pessimism over optimism and positive thinking is one way to avoid "unnecessary disturbance and anxiety."

Age gives you an edge in the workplace. Here’s how.

Melanie Katzman has 30 years of experience in her field, yet was advised to tell people she had just 20 years of experience so she wouldn't seem too out of touch.Katzman strongly disagrees with that assessment of age in the workplace. Rather than see it as a liability, older professionals should embrace their age and experience. They can see patterns more broadly, plus they have deep network connections, information, and the desire to be generous."Research shows us that generativity flows downhi...

The psychology of magic: Where do we look for meaning in life?

By embracing a rational approach to life, society at large has stripped away meaning from psychologically important elements of life, including death.A lack of meaning leads to discomfort, which results in a desperate search for narrative in things that feel transcendent and bigger than ourselves. For some, the wonder of magic fills that void and provides the meaning and structure that has been lost. Happy: Why More or Less Everything Is F...

Male sperm count is declining globally. Exercise helps.

A new study, published in Human Reproduction, found that exercise helps increase sperm motility. 746 healthy young men were studied over a six-month period; the more exercise they got, the better their sperm. Globally, sperm counts have gone down by over 50 percent over the last half-century. None For generations (and likely much longer), the blame for an inability to conceive fell on a woman's shoulders. Yet that's not, nor ever has been, the case. In at least 40 percent of couples, sperm (or ...

Women dress modestly to avoid aggression from other women, study suggests

Psychologists have long studied male intrasexual aggression, but women's is relatively understudied.Past research shows that women tend to be more aggressive toward women who are attractive or who display signs of sexual permissiveness.The results of a new study suggest that women make strategic decisions on what to wear in order to minimize aggression from other women. None When women choose what to wear, how much of that decision is based on how other women might perceive them in public? T...

#4: What makes someone gay? Science is trying to get it straight. | Top 10 2019

Big Think's fourth most popular video of 2019 features bioethicist Alice Dreger. She presents the idea that heterosexual people have been less interesting to scientists than gay people in terms of why they exist. This is because, evolutionarily speaking, being gay doesn't lead to a higher "higher reproductive fitness" — meaning, it doesn't lead to more babies.Huge and rigorous studies have proven the fraternal birth order effect: Statistically, if a mother has lots of pregnancies of males, every...

Monthly birth control pill could replace daily doses

Oral contraceptives are one of the most popular forms of birth control: In the United States, about 12 percent of women between 15 and 49 use them. However, their effectiveness depends on being taken every day, and it is estimated that about 9 percent of women taking birth control pills become pregnant each year.MIT researchers are now developing an oral contraceptive that only has to be taken once a month, which could reduce unintended pregnancies that result from forgetting to take a daily dos...
