Psychopaths are callous, remorseless, and exploitative individuals. Psychopaths have a characteristic way of communicating. Consider Ted Bundy, a serial killer who could likely meet the criteria for psychopathy : If you watch his 1977 prison interview, available in part on YouTube , you may find something peculiar about how Bundy talks, expresses emotions, and gestures. The question I would like to address in this post is whether we can identify psychopaths by examining how they communicate. To answer this question, I will summarize the findings of a recent study, published in the February issue of the Journal of Psycholinguistic Research , which reviews characteristics of psychopaths’ communication . 1 Psychopathy is sometimes confused with psychopathology (mental illness), psychosis (delusions and hallucinations ), and other similar-sounding words, so before discussing the present study, let me very briefly describe what psychopathy means. Who are … [Read more...] about You May Be Able to Identify a Psychopath by the Way They Talk

I’m always optimistic about my future. I hardly ever expect things to go my way. Which statement best reflects the way you view life? Statement 1 reflects a more optimistic view; while Statement 2 reflects a more pessimistic approach. Researchers suggest that our behavior is goal-driven and optimism or pessimism is the outlook that we adopt when we encounter a challenge to our goals . For example, how do you feel after a job interview? Are you generally positive about it went, or do you typically have a more negative interpretation of events? Researchers suggest that an optimist will likely see the world as full of potential opportunities, and as a result are more willing to take action. In contrast, a pessimist tends to feel hopeless about their future, which results in a more passive approach to events because they believe their efforts will be futile. Why does your outlook on life events matter? That is what I wanted to explore. I conducted a study where I … [Read more...] about Feeling Sad? A Little Optimism Can Go a Long Way
People give advice to each other all the time in all kinds of relationships. Whether it’s with your closest romantic partner, a family member, or a co-worker, it’s likely that advice-giving is a frequent aspect of your many interactions. “Should I wear this outfit today?”, your partner asks. You suggest something else you consider more attractive. Much to your surprise, your partner responds, “That’s okay, I’ll stick with my original choice.” Inwardly, you feel annoyed, but you decide to let it go as it’s not that important. But what if this is a regular pattern? What if your partner never listens to you, on matter small or large? Perhaps the person who ignores your advice isn’t as close to you as your romantic partner, but is an important individual in your life, nonetheless. You might have a relative who asks you for advice in planning a (socially distanced) family picnic. You spend several hours researching various potential sites, putting together a menu, and coming up with … [Read more...] about How do You Handle People Who Ignore Your Advice?

That means to say that a dog can feel happy, sad, angry, fearful, disgusted, and surprised. The question of whether they feel the more complex social emotions, including guilt , pride, shame , envy, and jealousy is still open to investigation. For example, jealousy is an emotion that involves three individuals. It is the unhappy feeling of being replaced in someone else's affections or the suspicion that the object of your affection has been unfaithful in your relationship. Some researchers feel that this involves some pretty complex reasoning processes, which perhaps only humans are capable of. However, in a new report, a team of researchers from the School of Psychology at the University of Auckland in New Zealand suggests that dogs are capable of this emotion. "Research has supported what many dog owners … [Read more...] about Is It Possible for a Dog to Actually Experience Jealousy?
