Ten Interesting Things About Human Behavior

Ten Interesting Things About Human Behavior is a short, lighthearted look at 10 things human beings do, why we do them, and their significance in our everyday lives. How do we resolve psychological conflict that occurs when our behavior violates our attitudes? Why are we so quick to blame others for their behavior while offering excuses for our own? What should we make of the talking heads on cable TV who argue about the cause of TV violence on children's behavior - whose explanation is correct? Why are reality TV shows, some of which portray contestants as pathetic and dysfunctional, so popular?

Questions like these usually provoke different answers from different people, each of whom may attribute his or her answers to "common sense." One person argues that "of course children mimic violence they see on TV - my kids do" while another attributes it to "poor parenting - because my kids don't." Which is it, and why?

Research psychologists try to answer these questions as best we can. This book is a brief look at the answers to 10 aspects of human behavior - answers derived from controlled behavioral research that is designed to test various theories about behavior. Certainly, there is more to human behavior than the 10 things I chose for this short book. And there are hundreds of primary sources and research reports that describe the research findings in more depth. They're out there if you'd like to read more.

But for those who are new to the field of Experimental Psychology, 10 Things may pique your interest in learning more about the subject. And for those "armchair psychologists" out there who'd like a quick read about the most fascinating creatures on the planet - human beings - I think you'll like it, too.

The Self Illusion: Why There is No 'You' Inside Your Head (Extract)

This is an extended extract from The Self Illusion: Why There is No 'You' Inside Your Head, available 19 April 2012.

Most of us believe that we possess a self - an internal individual who resides inside our bodies, making decisions, authoring actions and possessing free will. The feeling that a single, unified, enduring self inhabits the body - the 'me' inside me - is compelling and inescapable. This is how we interact as a social animal and judge each other's actions and deeds. But that sovereignty of the self is increasingly under threat from science as our understanding of the brain advances. Rather than a single entity, the self is really a constellation of mechanisms and experiences that create the illusion of the internal you.

We only emerge as a product of those around us as part of the different storylines we inhabit from the cot to the grave. It is an every changing character, created by the brain to provide a coherent interface between the multitude of internal processes and the external world demands that require different selves.

Psychology: The Workplace Psychology Guide

The Simple Guide to Workplace Psychology Tips for the Employee

Psychology has always been a lot more than a university course. In fact we use the techniques and theories of psychology in our day to day work. Sometimes we do it subconsciously through habit or conditioning. One of the most important parts of our life is work. We spend close to 8 hours a day on the job. When you consider the time spent on commuting and sleep; work seems to be this thing that envelops virtually everything we do. It is a serious business because that is where we earn an income to buy essentials like food, shelter and clothing. At the same time work is also the place where we meet different types of people. Many have met their future spouses and countless friends on the job. It is therefore very important to be able to adjust well to the workplace and all its challenges.

This book is conceived as a simple guide on how an employee can use the theories of psychology in their day to day life. It is not meant to be a definitive discussion of the theories of psychology. In any case it would take thousands of books to completely cover them. Instead this books gives you the reader simple tips and insights that you can use to get on better with your colleagues. The other benefit is that if you are a good colleague then chances are that you will find it easier to progress in your career. The book is divided into nine chapters which tackle specific theories in psychology and then try to apply them to the day to day situations which various workers find themselves in. This book can work for you at any level and any job. It does not matter whether you are a nurse, engineer, politician, miner or a multitude of other things. The book is equally applicable to the top executives and the lowliest people in the chain of command.

Hypnosis: Detailed Step-By-Step Hypnosis Scripts Guide

Learn How to Hypnotize & Control Anyone - Including Self Hypnosis !

For the longest time, you may have heard the myths surrounding hypnosis. While others believe in it, others completely do not buy it. It has been said that people link hypnosis to dark magic. Through a few eerie Hollywood depictions in the movies, hypnosis is portrayed as a frightening instrument of mind control where wicked and evil people (usually the villains) take control of a person's will creating helpless victims.

Hypnosis can be described as a state where one is in a semiconscious state so as to tap into memories that are being regressed or blocked out. It is commonly used in people who have gone through some past traumatic stress and have completely blocked out what happened to them or have lost their memory and recollection on important things in their lives.

Hypnotized subjects (the persons being hypnotized) are able to show an increased response to suggestions (the instructions given to the subject while under hypnosis by the hypnotist).

It, therefore, does not come as a surprise that there are numerous applications of hypnosis across multiple fields of interests. This includes medical/psychotherapeutic uses, military applications, self-improvement and pure entertainment. Hypnotism has also been used and is still being used, in forensics, sports, education, physical therapy and rehabilitation. It can also be used by artists for creative purposes; some people have used hypnotic methods to re-experience drug states and mystical experiences.
