The Neuroscience of Anxiety

Few things are as unpleasant as anxiety. With the explosion of interest in mindfulness meditation and books like The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, I’m hardly alone in wanting to worry less. Recently, I read Anxious by NYU neuroscientist Joseph LeDoux. LeDoux is an expert on a lot of the neural processes behind fear and anxiety, and this book offers fascinating insights into the underlying mechanisms that make miserable. At the same time, however, Anxious isn’t an easy read. Many sections invo...

Why We Can’t Sit Quietly In A Room Alone

I’ve always liked the Blaise Pascal quote, “I have discovered that all the miseries of men derive from one single fact: that they cannot sit quietly in their own room.” People interpret this famous pronouncement all sorts of ways, but if you look up the context, it’s clear he’s saying “we prefer the chase over the quarry.” In other words, we live more easily in a state of pursuing future experiences than settling into the experience we’re having. It makes sense from an evolutionary pers...

When the kids outsmarted the dictators

Social media has become an important way for marginalized people to organize and speak out, despite their exclusion from mainstream media. Indeed, one might wonder how protest movements could form without this tool. Yet decades before the internet was invented, young Argentines documented police brutality without iPhones, met and discussed their movement without social media, and even protested repression without marches. How? Through another of the most powerful and subversive media ever devise...

Questions of gun planting, outburst key in officer’s verdict

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A judge’s decision to acquit an officer of murder in the death of a black suspect came down to two major questions: Did the officer plant a gun, and did his outburst about killing the man seconds before the shooting signal premeditation? St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson determined Friday that […]

Smith references the work of Timothy Wilson, a psychologist at the University of Virginia, writing: At one point Wilson wagers that only about 5 percent of what we do in a given day is the outcome of conscious, deliberate choices we make, processed by that snowball on the tip of the iceberg that is human consciousness. The rest of our actions and behaviors are managed below the surface, by all sorts of learned yet no...

Brand Insights From The Deepest Level Of The Mind

In 2005 Malcolm Gladwell’s best-selling book “blink” brought into focus the idea that the nonconscious level of the mind is tremendously important in determining how people think, feel and behave. The reason this is so important for marketers and market researchers is that most marketing research and marketing are only involved in gathering information from and then trying to influence consumers’ conscious minds. If Gladwell is right, then much of current market research and marketing is misd...

This week a close friend called me to ask for counsel because he was feeling seriously down. We all feel blue at some times, and it's good to be clear that it is never helpful to let such feelings persist. I was able to say three things that helped my friend - things that I have said to myself at similar times: The Psychological Immune System Psychologist and neurologist Timothy Wilson explains how we vastly over-estimate the happiness that winning the lottery - or any other event - will bring...

"We tell ourselves stories in order to live ... We live entirely by the imposition of a narrative upon disparate images, by the "ideas" which we have learned to freeze the shifting phantasmagoria which is our actual experience." I was struck this week by this quote from Joan Didion's book The White Album. Whether we realize it or not, we all impose a narrative on our lives. But I want to relate this thought to the one which I explored in my previous blog - Walt Whitman's "Do I contradict mysel...

3 salvoes in the reproducibility crisis

The reproducibility crisis in Psychology rumbles on. For the uninitiated, this is the general brouhaha we’re having over how reliable published psychological research is. I wrote a piece on this in 2013, which now sounds a little complacent, and unnecessarily focussed on just one area of psychology, given the extent of the problems since uncovered in the way research is manufactured (or maybe not, see below). Anyway, in the last week or so there have been three interesting developments Despair M...
