It’s been said that if you really want to get a know a person, travel together. Think about it. Not only are you spending a lot of time with someone, but it’s a particularly revealing kind of time. You see a new side of a person as he leaves behind his routines and is pushed out of his comfort zone. You might learn that your friend, partner, or family member has a deep sense of curiosity and exuberance about the world, and truly marvels at cultural differences and novel landscapes. When things get stressful, you see just how easily he can shrug it off, find the humor, and still manage to have a good time. You might learn that together you’re a good team and you may return home closer than ever. But for every relationship that has been strengthened by travel, there is one that has been fractured. Traveling with someone might reveal things that you simply don’t like and never knew before: a fear of new cultural experiences and a general sense of closed-mindedness; … [Read more...] about If You Really Want to Get to Know a Person…
It was very late at night when I arrived at the airport two days ago. A man walked next to me, wearing a t-shirt and khaki slacks. He was greeted by two lines of people hoisting American flags and hand-cranked noisemakers. He passed between the lines, shaking hands, hugging a few of the men and women. There was no joy. The greeters were expressionless, and the man had a faraway look in his eyes. “Where is he returning from?” I asked a young boy who held a small flag. “Afghanistan.” Wow, I thought. A few days ago he may have been a soldier on the front lines, fearing I.E.D.s, his weapon locked and loaded, wondering if he would get out alive and intact. Now he was back home, and how in the world would he make the adjustment? Would he wake up the next day to coffee and scrambled eggs, and then walk the dog or feed the bird? Would he have nightmares and flashbacks? Was his spouse waiting for him, or was he single? How could he walk in an airport or … [Read more...] about Emotional Jetlag
“I want you to tell people what Cubans are really like,” said Marta, the manager of the new hotel Chateau Blanc in Havana. “I am not sure you can generalize about people in a country,” I protested. “Well, you are going to be traveling around Havana and then destinations outside of Havana. You will see for yourself. And then you can write about it.” Marta is a self-confessed, proud communist. “People in your country are afraid of communists, so I am happy to talk with anyone to explain. Before the revolution here, my family suffered a lot. We were poor. We couldn’t afford medical care or education. Since the revolution, everyone has access to free medical care and education. And everyone has a ration card, so there is no one starving. Every month, no matter who you are, you present your ration card, and you get food.” Those were Marta’s words, but her actions spoke more loudly. When I left the hotel, I handed her money … [Read more...] about What I Learned From Cubans About Mental Health
Can your moral compass be trusted? Source: By © Nevit Dilmen, CC BY-SA 3.0 What is the right thing to do? When faced with a moral problem, many people believe that they rely on reason to decide what is what is right or wrong. This view is mistaken. In fact, our moral judgments often come from an immediate feeling, rather than reason alone. In an article on moral reasoning, Paxton and Greene (2010) claim that moral reasoning is possible. They define moral reasoning as “conscious mental activity through which one evaluates a moral judgment for its (in)consistency with other moral commitments, where these commitments are to one or more moral principles and (in some cases) particular moral judgments.” For Paxton and Greene, your moral reasoning is based on whether your moral judgments are consistent with your overall moral principles. To better illustrate their definition, they provide an example of a conversation between two individuals, Adam and Greg. Adam … [Read more...] about Are Your Morals Reasonable?
