Why do holidays feel like they're over before they even start?

For many people, summer vacation can't come soon enough – especially for the half of Americans who canceled their summer plans last year due to the pandemic. But when a vacation approaches, do you ever get the feeling that it's almost over before it starts?If so, you're not alone. In some recent studies Gabriela Tonietto, Sam Maglio, Eric VanEpps and I conducted, we found that about half of the people we surveyed indicated that their upcoming weekend trip felt like it would end as soon as it st...

Shakespeare and the sciences of emotion

What role should literature have in the interdisciplinary study of emotion? The dominant answer today seems to be “not much.” Scholars of literature of course write about emotion but fundamental questions about what emotion is and how it works belong elsewhere: to psychology, cognitive science, neurophysiology, philosophy of mind. In Shakespeare’s time the picture was different. What the period called “passions” were material for ethics and for that part of natural philosophy dealing with the so...

Don't be rude to your doctor. It might kill you.

Anchoring is a common bias that makes people fixate on one piece of data. A study showed that those who experienced rudeness were more likely to anchor themselves to bad data.In some simulations with medical students, this effect led to higher mortality rates.Cognitive biases are funny little things. Everyone has them, nobody likes to admit it, and they can range from minor to severe depending on the situation. Biases can be influenced by factors as subtle as our mood or various personality ...

Overcome the trigger points in our lives with Marshall Goldsmith

Do you ever find that you are not the patient, compassionate problem solver you believe yourself to be? Have you ever felt your temper accelerate from zero to sixty when another driver cuts you off in traffic? Our reactions don’t occur in a vacuum. They are usually the result of unappreciated triggers in our environment. So often the environment seems to be outside our control. Even if that is true, as Goldsmith points out, we have a choice in how we respond. Listen in to an hour of life-changin...

Falsely accused? Stay calm, because anger makes you look guilty

A new study conducted various experiments to explore the relationship between anger and judgments of guilt.The results suggest that when an accused person becomes angry, perceivers are more likely to view that person as guilty, even though the accused might be innocent.Paradoxically, the study also found that people who are falsely accused generally become angrier than people who are rightfully accused.Imagine your neighbor accuses you of stealing something. You didn't. But your neighbor doesn...

Research finds narcissists are not just self-absorbed, they're also more likely to be aggressive

We recently reviewed 437 studies of narcissism and aggression involving a total of over 123,000 participants and found narcissism is related to a 21% increase in aggression and an 18% increase in violence.Narcissism is defined as “entitled self-importance." The term narcissism comes from the mythical Greek character Narcissus, who fell in love with his own image reflected in still water.

We Shouldn't Call Kids 'Crybabies,' Even If They Cry a Lot

The word “crybaby” evokes a certain image: a child who seems to tear up over things of little consequence, multiple times a day, and for several minutes per cry session—and who seems too old to do so. There is a societal expectation that by a certain age, maybe around the time they start kindergarten or first grade,…Read more...

Managers Need To Work To Deepen Their Emotional Intelligence

Managers need to find ways to boost their emotional intelligence Image Credit: Abhijit Bhaduri The world of management is filled with a number of different buzz words. One such word that we’ve been hearing for a while is “emotional intelligence”. The reason that managers should start to pay attention to this topic is because evidence is showing that emotional intelligence plays a big role in workplace performance if we can develop the right manager skills.

Evidence of an impending breakup may exist in speech patterns

When doubts about a relationship start to creep in, people don't just blurt them out. They might not want to worry their partner and figure they'll ride out what could just be a rough patch. They probably think they can hide their feelings pretty easily. But it turns out, hidden signs of their turmoil appear in the way they communicate.In our recently published study, we were able to show that people's language subtly changes in the months and weeks leading up to a breakup – well before they've ...

How gratitude makes you more attractive

When someone says thank you, who is it for? According to Dr. Sara Algoe, expressions of gratitude have a positive effect on the person receiving the message, the person delivering it, and even those who witness the exchange. These types of social interactions are crucial for building lasting relationships with romantic partners, friends, and coworkers."When we say 'thank you,' we're sending a message to the person who just did something nice for us, that they are valued, that they're seen, that ...

Regret over a hookup doesn’t change our behavior

Researchers from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology investigate the degree to which regret regarding sexual encounters makes us modify our behavior.Women more often have regrets about encounters that occurred, while men regret the ones that didn't.According to the study, people keep doing what they've been doing and continue to have the same regrets.When it comes to sexual encounters, both women and men may be left with feelings of regret in the fading afterglow. Women, according...

It’s hard to scare people without a visual imagination

People who can't picture things in their minds have aphantasia.If you're incapable of imagining something scary that's being described, why get frightened?However, scary pictures bother people with aphantasia just as much as they bother everyone else. A strong imagination is generally viewed as being a good thing, even if at times an over-active one can result in self-induced terror as you repeat to yourself, "Just because I can vividly picture something terrible happening doesn't mean it will....

Smells connect to memories more than other senses

The right scent can conjure up a memory more powerfully than most anything else.People who lose their sense of smell often develop symptoms of depression.While other senses connect to the brain's memory center indirectly, the olfactory cortex has a direct line. It's called the Proust effect after a story in the author's "Remembrance of Things Past: Swann's Way." When a character dipped a madeleine, a sweet, buttery French cake, into some lime-blossom tea, the scent suddenly transported him back...

Higher incomes tied to better emotional states — but there's a catch

A review of data from 1.6 million people shows that higher incomes relate to more positive feelings about the self. Feelings towards others were not affected by higher incomes. The findings have implications for those hoping to improve society by raising incomes alone. It has often said that money cannot buy happiness, though it is also thought that the wealthy enjoy their miseries in relative comfort. While it is easy to measure the external benefits of increased wealth, the studies on how mo...

Why Does Music Make Us Feel Things?

Once a day, at least, I’ll tear up listening to music. Just a drop or two, or not even a drop, just a pre-cry convulsion, a sudden seizure of feeling. More often than not, I have no specific memories tied to the song in question—sometimes I’m hearing it for the first or second time. If you asked me why the song was…Read more...
