How can you now  Your Coworker Is a Psychopath..


Serial killers are often depicted in film and television as deranged psychopaths. This contributes to the general confusion that exists between psychopaths and serial killers. The truth is psychopaths, sociopaths, and antisocial personalities, compared to serial killers, are relatively common. Serial killers are extremely rare because they usually exhibit a potent combination of multiple mental illness diagnostic categories including antisocial personality, narcissism, and different forms of paraphilia (voyeurism, frotteurism, exhibitionism, sadism, masochism, etc.). Statistically speaking, a psychopath is almost always never a serial killer; patterned homicide is just that rare.
How many psychopaths are reading this article along with you?
Hard to tell. But if thousands of people read this, research suggests there are bound to be some. About 15 percent of male prisoners meet psychopathic diagnostic criteria. This statistic illustrates…

Finding a Partner & Your Love

Finding a Partner & Your  Love, ....


When it comes to seeking a partner, many of us have a ‘type’: an ideal set of characteristics we would like to find in Mr. or Mrs. Right.
Of course, we are all free to desire whatever we want in a partner, but when it comes to starting a real relationship, most of us are constrained. When you choose a partner, that partner must also choose you. And there is no guarantee that the type of person who is attracted to you is also your ideal type.
For a long time, many scientists who studied partner-choice assumed that preferences are reflected in choice. That is, we end up with partners who possess characteristics we find attractive. But other scientists have proposed that we are so constrained in our choices it is likely that preferences have little to do with choice.
A few years ago, I and my former colleagues at Penn State University brought together a group of couples to test which of these schools of thought was true. We found that, yes, men a…

5 Tips for your Emotions in Text messages

5 Tips for your  Emotions in Text messages.👸 It’s easy when people say they are angry or sad or excited, or if they tack an emoji to the end of a text. But when they don’t? Given that even face-to-face communication can be confusing, it should not surprise us that truncated, dashed-off text messages can result in disastrous misunderstandings.
In the age of technology, we not only need to decode in-person interactions, we also need to decode textual transmissions. How do we know what a person is feeling when we can't see their faces or body language? Here are six tips to help you better decode emotions in text messages, or at least prevent yourself from jumping to conclusions based on scant evidence.
1. Assume good intentions
In general, text messages are short. We have very little information to work with. A smiley face or series of exclamation points can help assure us that the text is meant to express positive emotion, but texts do not always include these extra emotion indica…

How should I control my anger..




 Anger is never without a reason, but seldom a good one. During rage attacks those parts of the brain that are central to feeling and expressing anger, such as the amygdala and the hypothalamus, commandeer the rest of the brain. In this wholesale takeover, the cerebral cortex is overwhelmed and restraint and reasoning are impossible. In most situations this type of unrestrained anger destroys much more than it accomplishes. Do you fume when someone cuts you off in traffic? Does your blood pressure rocket when your child refuses to cooperate? Anger is a normal and even healthy emotion  but it's important to deal with it in a positive way. Uncontrolled anger can take a toll on both your health and your relationships.
Ready to get your anger under control? Start by considering these 10 anger management tips.

1. Think before you speak
In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your th…

Want to Make a Good Impression? in your life   Don't Do These 4 Things.....

Making a good impression on others is vital to our social lives. Imagine being in a job interview or on a date; how you come off to another person could spell success or failure in these situations. To be well-received, one must convey qualities such as warmth, trustworthiness, and competence. But sometimes we miss the mark. Research on what’s known as impression management is extensive and maintains that people are quite skilled at presenting themselves to others in a positive light. When they don’t, it is believed that it is due to resource depletion. (Essentially, not having the mental energy to properly navigate social situations.)
Self‐presentation involves two steps. First, one must choose the image they wish to convey to others. Second, one must strategically present that image. It is this second step which researchers say can tax mental resources. Making a positive impression takes self-regulatio…
