Nearly a century ago, comparative psychologist Winthrop Niles Kellogg and his wife welcomed a baby chimpanzee into their home. Their plan was to raise the primate alongside their own baby boy, Donald. It didn’t end well.

Gua, born November 15, 1930, was the first chimpanzee to be used in a cross-breeding study in the United States. She was brought into the Kellogg household when she was seven and a half months old and raised with their son Donald, who was 10 months old at the time.

As described in The Psychological Record, the bizarre experiment was to see how the environment influences a child’s development.

The Kellogs began raising the chimpanzee and their son as “brother and sister.”

It was reported that Mr Kellog had always dreamed of conducting the experiment since he was a student. He was fascinated by wild children, who never came into contact with humans.

The experiment lasted 9 months, 12 hours a day and seven days a week. During this time, the couple performed several tests on Gua and Donald.

Donald’s blood pressure, memory, body size, scribbling, reflexes, depth perception, vocalization, locomotion, tickle reactions, strength, manual dexterity, problem solving, fears, balance, play behavior, climbing, obedience, grasping, language comprehension, attention span, and others,” noted the author of The Psychological Record.

In other words, they were brought up the same way. But unfortunately, the couple got more than they expected, as their son started showing monkey-like features.

The experiment had to be canceled because Donald started behaving like a chimpanzee, showing aggression, biting people and even making monkey noises. It is said that he barked at Gua when he wanted more food and started crawling.

Alarmed by the negative results, the Kellogs abruptly ended the experiment. But he was already too late.

Although not much is known about the son, it was reported that he committed suicide aged 43 in 1973. Gua was sent back to the primate center where he was adopted from Florida. There, it was the subject of further studies. She died of pneumonia at the age of 3.

The authors of The Psychological Record said: “(The experiment) was probably more successful than any study before its time in demonstrating the limits that heredity imposes on an organism, regardless of environmental opportunities, as well than the developmental gains that could be made in enriched environments.”

“We are only told that the study ended on March 28, 1932, when Gua was returned to the Orange Park primate colony through a gradual rehabilitation process,” they added.

Over the years, experts have offered several theories as to why the experiment was terminated. Some said the chimpanzee was getting too strong for Donald. Others said the couple was exhausted from the experience for nine months. They also began to lose hope because Gua was unable to learn human signs and languages.

Aaftab Poonawala – suspected of killing his partner Shraddha Walker and cutting his body into 35 pieces before dumping them across Delhi – could undergo a narcotics analysis or polygraph test, sources said on Wednesday, adding that a court had granted permission. The tests were ordered after police found several discrepancies in Poonawala’s statements.



In a most gruesome and horrific crime, 26-year-old Walkar was murdered in May at her home in the Chattarpur area of ​​the nation’s capital. She was strangled, her body sliced ​​and stored in a refrigerator while the accused – Poonawala – methodically dumped pieces across the city.

The police – alerted to the murder after Walkar’s father made a missing person complaint – also plan for a psychological evaluation of Poonawala as the cold-blooded nature of the crime is revealed; he allegedly Googled advice on disposing of corpses and cleaning up bloodstains and exploited her social media accounts to make it look like she was alive.

A senior Delhi police officer told ANI that the tests could reveal whether Aaftab – who authorities say sought to confuse them with misleading statements – is telling the truth and also helps to understand his mental state. The police also want more information about her relationship with Walkar.



Earlier today, police reportedly found traces of blood in the kitchen of the two-bedroom apartment Walkar shared with Poonawala. Samples have been sent for DNA testing.

On Tuesday they were led by Poonawala to 13 suspected human remains in a wooded area of ​​Mehrauli in Delhi – one of the sites where pieces of Walkar’s body were dumped.

These too were sent for medical examination.

Shraddha Walkar’s head and murder weapon have yet to be found.

Walkar and Poonawala met on a dating app three years ago and moved to Delhi in February.

Poonawala told police he planned to assassinate her at least a week before doing so, but postponed the murder because she was “emotional”. Police are investigating the possibility that he killed her because he wanted a relationship with another woman he met online.



Walkar’s father called for the death penalty for Poonawala.

“I climbed to my favorite spot in my apple tree and cried.”

Cheryl Rickman, Sunday Times best-selling author and positive psychology expert, tells me how a tree brings solace and solace in the worst of times.

“My mum Denise passed away suddenly at the age of 43 when I was only 17 and climbing that tree in my moment of grief gave me escape and comfort,” she told Metro.co.uk.

In that moment, Cheryl knew that even though she was feeling bad, “the trees made me feel better.”

It inspired her career in positive psychology and her new book Tree Glee: How And Why Trees Make Us Feel Better (Welbeck Publishing, £16.99) and her passion for discovering the benefits of the outdoors, nature and trees for to comfort, restore and revitalize us.

Here, Cheryl discusses with us what we can learn from the wisdom of forests to improve our own well-being.

What is the connection between trees and happiness?

Many scientific studies show that trees calm and uplift us: they calm our minds and make us feel positive emotions such as awe, serenity, joy and gratitude.

Studies show that walking in trees turns off the stress response, replacing the production of cortisol and adrenaline with happiness hormones such as oxytocin and serotonin.

When we walk through the woods, our calm response is engaged. We don’t even have to walk: In a Japanese field study of 24 forest sites, even standing still while looking at trees reduced stress levels.

Why is it so important right now to go into the woods to improve our well-being?

We currently spend between 90% and 93% of our time indoors (and 6% of that time inside cars) and spend more time glued to screens – texting, typing, gaming, watching TV, than we don’t go to sleep.

As time spent outdoors decreases, anxiety, depression and other mental illnesses are on the rise. We have never needed to reconnect with nature as much as today.

Trees calm and uplift us: they soothe our minds and make us feel positive emotions such as awe, serenity, joy and gratitude.

Why do trees make us feel better?

Trees not only help heal our bodies – willow bark gives us aspirin, cocoa trees provide theophylline for asthma medication, pine needles can be used as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever – but they also help our mental health.

How?

A study looking at tree density in relation to antidepressant prescriptions in London found that residents of tree-lined streets were prescribed fewer drugs than those in places without trees. While a study in Scotland found that urban residents living near public parks with trees had lower self-reported stress and cortisol levels than those who had no nearby trees or green spaces.

The mental health benefits of trees are why forest therapy has taken off in countries with the highest rates of suicide and depression.

What is Forest Therapy?

It is also called forest bathing. It is an immersive experience where you connect deeply with nature while sharpening your senses or attention.

The best place to bathe in the forest is in the woods with dense forest cover, as this means a higher concentration of phytoncides – which are botanical compounds, which work to calm our autonomic nervous system and help us sleep.

How do you “bathe” in a forest?

The best time is either in summer when phytoncides are at their highest, or after rain and during fog when the air is humid. Above all, take your time, walk slowly, adapt your senses to what you see, hear and smell. The recommended distance to cover is between 2 km and 5 km to generate the optimal effect (although forest bathing can have a positive impact on us in just 20 minutes). It is very popular in Japan and Korea.

We have never needed to reconnect with nature as much as today.

Why is that?

More than a quarter of Japan’s population, who work longer hours than anywhere else in the world, regularly take part in forest bathing.

Korea, which has the highest suicide rate in the world, has invested millions in forest bathing. As part of its national forest plan, South Korea, the first country to offer a forest healing curriculum, has built a forest healing complex and aims to create “a green welfare state, such is the appreciation and tree awareness.

It is as if we are healing our minds and bodies by tapping into the wisdom of the trees.

Wisdom of trees?

We can learn a lot from trees. They collaborate, they don’t compete. They understand that the health of the forest depends on the healthiest tree. They know when to ask for help and ask for nutrients if they are short. If you think about it, good partners stay tuned to each other’s needs and nurture each other’s well-being, which is exactly what trees do. Tree roots reach out and combine with other trees in their community, intertwining up to 100 feet and connecting trees from one forest edge to the next. A single tree can be connected to up to 250 others via this “Wood Wide Web”, a term coined by professor of forest ecology and author of Finding the Mother Tree, Suzanne Simard, who discovered that fungal threads connect almost every tree in the whole forest.

Trees are helpful and altruistic. Not just to each other, they can even help you be more productive at work.

What do you mean?

Trees don’t just soothe us, they help us focus! Spending even 20 minutes around trees can boost our memory and concentration, catalyze creativity, and open our minds to problem solving.

In a University of Michigan study, people sent for a walk in an arboretum performed 20% better on a memory test the second time they took it, compared to those who took it again. test after walking around the city, which showed no improvement.

And the more time we spend replacing technology with trees, the better. Another study showed that four days of immersion in nature and less exposure to technology resulted in a 50% improvement in a creative problem-solving test! 50%! Isn’t it amazing? !

Trees can transform your life. This is why we must take care of our trees. The trees are in trouble.

In trouble?

Yes, despite promises and urgency to reduce deforestation, which along with the burning of fossil fuels is a major cause of global warming, satellite images reveal that 2020 to 2021 has seen the highest level of deforestation in the Amazon rainforest for over 15 years.

Although scientists are rushing to fill emergency seed banks so they can replant one in five endangered tree species, many trees cannot be preserved this way.

Trees can transform your life. This is why we must take care of our trees. The trees are in trouble.

But what can we do?

Sometimes when someone takes a stand for trees, it can turn into a conservation movement.

I love the story of Kenyan Wangari Maathai aka Mama Miti, “mother of trees”. During her lifetime, Wangari stood up for women’s rights, bravely spoke out against political corruption and, as the founder of the Green Belt Movement, was responsible for planting 30 million trees and conserving well others, while allowing women to unite for social reform. In turn, she became the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize (for environmental and humanitarian efforts).

As a child, Wangari had seen tree after tree fall as British colonialists felled them to make space for tea plantations. Radically, his mother decides to send him to school, rare for girls at that time; and Wangari continued her studies in the United States.

Back in post-colonial Kenya, the highly educated Wangari noticed how her nation’s economy and ecology were broken. His compatriots still needed to fell trees to plant and export tea, tobacco and coffee, long after the British left in 1963. In 1977, Wangari traveled from village to village, persuading people, especially the women, to create tree nurseries and to plant trees. of the Green Belt Movement. The saplings from these nurseries were offered as a token of tribal peace when the president tried to stir up trouble. She protested the president’s deforestation plans and, despite imprisonment, persisted in making her voice heard.

Other countries listened and eventually the president’s corruption was exposed and he was removed from office.

Wangari then became Deputy Minister of Environment, Natural Resources and Wildlife.

Wangari knew that when we plant a tree, we are planting hope for the future. And she knew that when people come together in harmony, much can be accomplished.


How to connect with trees and yourself

  • Find a spot under, next to, or near a tree that you can visit regularly, and stay there for 15 minutes. Make a commitment to sit under your tree in your calendar at regular times, whether daily, weekly, or monthly.
  • Sit by your tree and notice what arouses your curiosity and wonder. Touch the forest floor, smell the flowers and the grass. Slowly draw inspiration from what you can experience from your “seating point”.
  • Watch out for visiting birds. See if you can decipher their songs.
  • Visit your “sitting spot” at different times of the day and year. Visit in different seasons, depending on weather conditions.
  • Focus your attention on yourself for a moment to balance awareness of nature with awareness of self. Notice what you think and feel. What comes to the surface?
  • The word ‘tree’ comes from the same root as ‘truth’. Ask yourself: What is true for me? What matters most? How to stay firm?

Waits for cancer screening tests in British Columbia continue to grow due to staffing shortages, radiologist says http://www.populerpsikoloji.com/waits-for-cancer-screening-tests-in-british-columbia-continue-to-grow-due-to-staffing-shortages-radiologist-says/ Tue, 08 Nov 2022 14:00:00 +0000 http://www.populerpsikoloji.com/waits-for-cancer-screening-tests-in-british-columbia-continue-to-grow-due-to-staffing-shortages-radiologist-says/ As provincial and territorial health ministers met with their federal counterpart in Vancouver on Monday, a British Columbia radiologist said wait times for medical imaging for cancer screening had increased due to a staff shortage.

As provincial and territorial health ministers met with their federal counterpart in Vancouver on Monday, a British Columbia radiologist said wait times for medical imaging for cancer screening had increased due to a staff shortage.

Paula Gordon, a clinical professor in the department of radiology at the University of British Columbia who specializes in breast imaging, said wait times for tests to diagnose or rule out cancer were not good before the COVID-19 pandemic and have gradually worsened.

She said women who needed a needle biopsy to check for cancer cells could get one within two days of an ultrasound.

“These expectations are now up to over three months,” Gordon said.

Wait times for medical imaging, she says, can have a significant impact on a patient’s outcome.

Some cancers grow quickly, while others grow more slowly. Breast cancer, she says, usually falls somewhere in the middle.

“But for women who have fast-growing cancer, if they find a lump in their breast, the time it takes to do all the tests, including the needle biopsy, may be such that the cancer develops while it waits and can even spread to lymph nodes and other parts of the body.”

“Something is seriously wrong”

Vancouver’s Heather Johnstone says she first noticed numbness in her feet in 2020, before the COVID-19 pandemic began. X-rays found nothing, so she was referred for an MRI, which lasted a year. A second MRI was ordered, and it took six months. He found a large tumor compressing more than half of his spinal cord. She was able to have surgery in April and she continues to recover.

Prior to the discovery of the tumor, Johnstone faced physical discomfort as numbness rose from his feet to his legs. She also dealt with the psychological stress that comes with uncertainty. At different times, she says she thought she might have had Lyme disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

“[I’m] thinking something is seriously wrong, and I don’t know what it is.”

Staffing issues in British Columbia and across Canada

The BC Radiological Society says it wrote a letter to British Columbia Minister of Health Adrian Dix in September expressing concern about patients waiting for medical imaging, citing a “critical shortage” of technologists and the need to replace aging equipment.

The company says data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information revealed that in 2020, British Columbia had the lowest number of medical radiation technologists per capita in Canada, and the province needs more. 1,300 additional technologists to reach the national average.

There is also a shortage of sonographers for ultrasound imaging.

He calls on the province to do more to recruit and retain experienced technologists and sonographers and train new ones.

The problem is not isolated to British Columbia

The Canadian Association of Radiologists has asked the federal government for $1 billion in funding over three years for new medical imaging equipment and the development of a plan to hire more medical radiation technologists and sonographers.

Earlier this year, the head of the BC Cancer Agency cited staffing issues as one of the main reasons cancer patients in BC are waiting longer than they should for treatment.

It is expected that 31,000 British Columbians will be diagnosed with cancer in 2022, according to the agency. Nearly half of British Columbians will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, according to the province.

The post exploded, racking up over a million page views. Turning the message into a book seemed like a natural next step. But when Housel, a first-time author, sought it out, American publishers told him the concept would never work. In fact, “most of them wouldn’t even return our emails,” he said. “And those who did were like, ‘Hey, I’m just letting you know, nobody’s going to read this book. It’s not going to work.'”

Publishers did not like the format Housel proposed; he wanted to make 20 individual points in short chapters. “All the publishers said, ‘No, there has to be a theme that we talk about throughout the book, otherwise it’s not a book, it’s a collection of essays,’ recalls- 11. A publishing insider wished him well and suggested he self-publish.

Harriman House had approached Housel about writing a book a few years earlier, but he had declined the offer. After being shut down in the United States, he contacted Harriman. “To their credit, they got the opposite reaction from everyone in America,” Housel said. He didn’t receive any advances, and when he signed the deal with Harriman House, it didn’t seem like the start of anything big. He doesn’t remember his wife’s reaction. “It wasn’t like, ‘Oh, this is going to change our lives. It was like, ‘Oh, here’s this little project I’m working on,'” Housel said.

Housel, who had a strong Twitter following his writing Motley Fool, announced he was writing a book in a February 2020 tweet linked to Amazon’s pre-order page. About 100 people did, which seemed “pretty disappointing”, he recalls.

The month before the book was published, Housel received a message from The Wall Street Journal, where he had been a guest columnist in 2014 and 2015. They wanted his photo for an upcoming article. It turned out to be a column on “The Psychology of Money” by longtime Journal investment columnist Jason Zweig, who called it “one of the best and the most original books on finance in years”. Pre-orders then exploded and readers continue to discover the book.

Looking back, Zweig says Housel’s work has always stuck with him. “I walk a lot, and I know Morgan does too,” Zweig told MarketWatch. “I often feel that a good walk both empties the mind and fills it: when you leave behind some of your cares and trivial thoughts, the fresh air and sunlight can liberate to perceive the wider scope of things that are normally obscured by the monotony and hassle of everyday life.”

“I think in a world where many writers are struggling to deliver either the fastest hot take or the hottest fast take, Morgan puts people in the shoes (and mind) of someone who just to come back from a long leisurely but invigorating walk.”

Next for Housel: a book about behaviors that never change

The success of “The Psychology of Money” stems in part from Housel’s clear and accessible writing, but the book’s classic truisms also help, said Harriman House spokesperson Vincent. The book does not rely on charts and graphs and market data. “It’s not particularly time-sensitive, so while some books may focus on a particular time period in the market or a particular type of topic, the good thing about ‘The Psychology of Money’ is that it’s kind of completely timeless,” Vincent said. “The lessons included will be applicable worldwide to anyone at any time.”

Housel has two theories as to why “The Psychology of Money” took off. The first is that he was lucky. (Luck is a topic he explores in the book in a story highlighting that Bill Gates had a chance when he attended one of the few American high schools with a computer.)

The second is that what most editors hated about the book — that it would be a sparse collection of essays with no unifying theme — is what readers love about it. His goal was to make his case with “a minimum of ramblings” and then get out of the readers’ way.

He also carefully considers the long-term value of what he writes before he begins to type. “I’ve always had this idea that if an article is relevant today but not relevant tomorrow, then it’s not relevant at all,” Morgan told The Knowledge Project podcast. “So every time I write an article, the litmus test I try to ask is, if someone reads this article a year from now, will it still be relevant?” A lot of financial writing fails this test because it’s based on current events, on what the market did today. “It’s valuable, but I’ve always felt that the most valuable content comes from more or less timeless things,” Housel said.

Housel, who is now associated with the Collaborative Fund and Markel’s Board of Directors, will explore this theme in his upcoming book, which will focus on behaviors that never change. “There’s so much emphasis in this industry on what’s going to change: how the economy is going to change, where are we going next, what innovations are going to change,” Housel said. “But I think what matters a lot more, what is most impactful and important is what will never change. Which is just an innate part of human behavior that we will do forever and that we can know for sure will be part of our future?”

Increased happiness can be yours

Co-authored with Joel Klepac, Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

Would you like more happiness, clarity and connection to yourself? A simple strategy can help. Now check how you feel. See if you can notice a specific emotion. Maybe you feel frustrated. Or maybe sad or lonely. Then add these five words as a prefix to the sentiment: “A part of me feels frustrated” or “A part of me feels sad.” Now give yourself a minute to check it out and see what you notice.

These five words can start a useful change. It is a process of emotional separation, as discovered by Richard Schwartz, Ph.D., and others in the field of Internal Family Systems (IFS). And this brings many benefits.

On a recent solo beach vacation, I noticed a heaviness in my body and a yearning for connection — that sticky feeling known as loneliness. When I realized that part of me was lonely – not all of me – a surge of relief and energy surged. It spread out in waves as I pedaled along the beach, an interior space echoing the vastness of the ocean and the softness of the sky. It’s a moment I never want to forget.

The shift from “everything I feel” to “a part of myself feels” brings many gifts, including a broader perspective. For me, it gave me access to new ideas to connect with others and with my environment. Adding these five words to the emotion you are feeling can bring inner space and access to a deeper self that is calm, energetic and curious.

Find and focus on parts

The language of “parts”, as in “A part of me feels _____” is priceless. Seeing that it is a part of you that feels a certain way naturally makes room for other parts and other perspectives. Not merging with that specific feeling, while bringing curiosity and compassion to it, opens up a world of possibilities.

Maybe part of you thinks it’s too good to be true. Maybe part of it feels skeptical – great. Be curious about this part. What is he trying to do? Protect you? Avoid wasting time and energy and going down an unnecessary rabbit hole?

We all have protective pieces, and that’s a good thing, they help keep us safe. When you see a specific part of you, like a skeptical part, can you appreciate it for its intent? How do you feel now about this part? Maybe a bit more open and spacious inside? Maybe a little quieter? Perhaps even more curious?

Befriend your parties

Concentrating on one part brings a sweet curiosity. This can include asking that part what they think would happen if they didn’t do what they are doing. Maybe my lonely part at the beach feared that I would feel like this forever, missing the company and the joy of sharing good times with others.

Another helpful question when noticing and working with pieces is to ask yourself, “What’s happening now while I’m with this piece?” Is there a feeling of softening and expansion, or is it more of a withdrawal and contraction? Adjusting to the emotional tone can guide you to a place of expansion and self-care.

This question also clarifies how much openness and compassion are present to engage in this part. If you feel critical about this part or have a strong desire to get rid of it, it is helpful to take a step back and see if this critical part can relax so that you can understand the part about which you want to focus on.

If there is a base level of curiosity and openness, then you can take it a step further and ask the part, “What are you trying to do for me?” Or maybe even ask what he’s afraid would happen if he didn’t present himself that way? Pretty soon, you may notice a much clearer appreciation for the protective role this part is trying to play in your life.

Working with a perfectionist piece

Co-writer Joel Klepac recalls a situation at work that sparked a perfectionist game. Noticing a feeling of discomfort, a feeling of tightness in the chest and almost a feeling of cold, he became curious. Instead of rushing ahead, he took a moment, asking, “Why is this feeling manifesting this way?” He observed: “Part of me feels anxious that I’m not perfect.”

This alone brought some relief and a decrease in the feeling of anxiety. He recalled, “I’m not just anxious; I live an anxious part. It brought a little more space, allowing him to see him as an anxious part, not all he is.

Then he quietly wondered, “What is it about?” This question brought a realization that as a teenager he had gained approval for his good grades and accomplishments, and he still believed in college that this was why people cared about him.

With this awareness now conscious, he could focus on this part and update it on the rich friendships he now has and how they have demonstrated that they care about him, regardless of his imperfections. . It brought feelings of warmth, peace and ease.

Farewell words

These five words,A part of me feels _____” is one way to feed yourself. Adding them can bring an inner space where there is more room to breathe, experiment and try new approaches. It’s a way to meet with kindness and attention.

Know that you can work with an IFS-trained therapist for a deeper understanding. Research increasingly demonstrates the benefits of this therapeutic approach. When you make room for all of your parts, gently and carefully, you naturally make room for the parts of others as well.

A recent study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology suggests that couples who pool their money, compared to couples who keep some or all of their money separately, are happier in their relationships and less likely to break up.

The pooling strategy seems to particularly benefit low-income couples.

“While opening a bank account can benefit all couples, the effect is particularly strong among couples with limited financial resources – those with low family income or who report feeling financially distressed,” say the authors of the research, led by Joe Gladstone of University College London. United Kingdom.

To reach this conclusion, the researchers conducted a series of experiments, summarized below:

  • Over 1,000 married couples were asked in an online survey to report their relationship satisfaction as well as how they managed their finances with their spouse. Couples who pooled all their money together were significantly happier than couples who kept their finances separate. Couples who partially pooled their money were happier than those who kept things separate, but not as happy as those who pooled everything.
  • In another experiment, researchers analyzed data from the British Cohort Study, a nationally representative follow-up study of people born in Britain in 1970. Study participants reported how they put on money in common with their partner (“Pool all money”, “Pool some, rest separate” or “Keep all the money separate”). The researchers sought to find out how many of these couples separated in the following years and found that the percentage was higher among couples who kept their money separate.
  • Another experiment sought to explain the link between joint finances and relationship satisfaction. The researchers found that it had to do with feelings of togetherness: Pooling finances increased feelings of shared possessions and shared financial goals, which improved relationship satisfaction for couples.

The authors note that there are instances where separating finances can benefit couples. Another experiment found that new couples (those who had been together for less than a year) reported more relationship satisfaction when they made financial decisions on their own.

What is the prevalence of shared versus separate financial arrangements in couples? Research published in PLOS-ONE suggests that in Australia around 80% of couples have a joint bank account. The percentages are similar in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

But there might be a slight tendency towards separation. Researchers reported that the share of couples who owned a joint account declined by about four percentage points between 2002 and 2014.

While there’s no “right” answer to how couples should manage their finances, one thing is certain: financial instability can put a strain on an otherwise good relationship. A recent study published in Social psychology and personality sciences found that economically disadvantaged couples were more likely to experience a decline in marital satisfaction after the “honeymoon” phase of the relationship compared to financially stable couples. And another study published in Family relationships found that financial disagreements are better predictors of divorce than other common marital disagreements.

“These findings also speak to the (dis)connecting power of money by showing that the way people manage their money can disconnect them, or connect them, even from their loved ones,” the authors conclude.

Love is a risky business. Love partners have enormous power over each other’s well-being, a power that is too easy to abuse.

Many people suffer when they try to love or when they try to receive love.

As a nation, we inflict tremendous wounds and kill children and intimate partners. A multitude of suicides result from a love gone wrong. In terms of the likelihood of sustaining emotional and physical harm at the hands of another, the most dangerous interpersonal activity most people do is to love or be loved.

The great tragedy of hurtful love is that most pain and all abuse is entirely preventable.

shadows of attachment

Attachment is the formation and maintenance of emotional bonds. We tend to think of attachment as positive, based on love, caring, compassion, trust and support. In fact, most start out that way. But strong attachments can also be negative, having gradually turned into chronic resentment, anger, blame, and criticism.

Emotional mechanisms of attachment

Both positive and negative attachments are subject to the emotional mechanisms of contagion and harmonization.

Emotions are more contagious than any known virus. But the contagion has a negative salience. We are more likely to feel resentment or anger towards an irritated or angry person than to be joyful towards a cheerful person.

Attunement is an intimate version of contagion, in which partners automatically attune their emotions to each other. That’s why it seems like a switch is tripping inside you when you come home feeling good, only to find your partner is angry. Harmonization will increase your partner’s emotional state a little and yours a lot.

Negative salience sometimes makes us resist attunement altogether: “I can’t let my partner put me down or make me nervous or angry.”

Repeated resistance to attunement creates a distance in relationships, which usually fills with resentment and, over time, contempt and at least minor emotional abuse.

Positive or negative attachment

Positive attachment is reward-driven: you feel better and you love yourself more. Negative attachment aims to reduce vulnerability. This can make some people feel self-righteous but not quite like themselves.

In positive attachment, partners:

  • Maintain interest, compassion, trust and love.
  • Have an attitude of connection.
  • Empower, encourage and reassure each other.
  • Are cooperative and forgive mistakes.

In negative attachment, partners:

  • Decrease interest, compassion, trust and love.
  • Have an attitude of disconnection.
  • Engage in power struggles.
  • Get discouraged or look down on each other.
  • Evoking anxiety or shame.
  • See each other as adversaries.
  • Carry a grudge.

The road to negative attachment

Arguments over issues, problems, or conflicting attachment styles do not in themselves turn attachment negative. Rather, negative attachment results from a repeated failure of compassion, especially compassionate assertiveness.

With compassionate assertiveness, partners uphold their rights, privileges, preferences, tastes, and opinions in a way that respects the rights, privileges, preferences, tastes, opinions, sensitivities, and vulnerabilities of the other.

The failure of compassion makes attachments negative. Restoring compassion will set them back.

Relationships become precarious when there are threats of abandonment:

“You do what I want, or I’m leaving.”

Unless there is abuse, there should never be threats of abandonment. The attitude in positive attachment is:

“We will overcome disagreements and resolve issues with value and respect for each other. Our bond is more important than problems and troubles.

Essential readings of attachments

connection attitude

Connection is a choice, generally speaking. We choose to feel connected and we choose to feel disconnected. In general, people like themselves better when they choose to feel connected and like themselves less when they choose to feel disconnected.

In an attitude of connection, the partners see themselves as connected, no matter where they are or what they are doing, whether they are satisfied or disappointed by the behavior of the other. They behave as if they were connected. They make small gestures of connection throughout the day: brief contact, gentle eye contact, smiles and hugs. They think and speak in terms of ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’ and ‘our’.

In an attitude of disconnection, the partners think and speak in terms of “me”, “I”, “you”, “mine” and “yours”.

Test the hypothesis: Try integrating “we, our, our, our” into your everyday vocabulary for the next three weeks, and note the effect on your relationship. Try writing this sentence several times to see how you feel:

“We want our relationship to bring us the safety, security, love and happiness that we deserve.”

The hackneyed communication tips for converting “you-statements” to “I-statements” cannot turn negative attachments into positive ones. But replacing “I statements” with “we statements” has a chance. “In-us statements” tend to invoke shared values, such as compassion and caring.

Over time, the feelings of connection should be reciprocated, but they won’t be all the time. At all times, one partner will be stronger than the other. Maintaining one-sided feelings of connection gives the stressed partner time to recuperate. Reactive disconnection makes everything worse.

Issues and errors link

Maintaining interest, compassion, trust and love should be more important than questions and problems. To the extent that the partners adhere to these priorities, the problems bring them together. They are teammates who cooperate to find solutions that work for both of them, without either feeling ignored, hurt or treated unfairly. They make mistakes and sincerely apologize.

Solving issues and problems does not turn negative attachments into positive ones. Making negative attachments positive solves issues and problems.

The following helps discern whether your attachment is positive or negative. It also highlights areas of work to save your relationship.

Positive: Feeling of safety and security in the relationship

Negative: Feeling in danger, filled with doubts

Positive: Sincere attempts to maintain interest, compassion, trust, love

Negative: Frequent withdrawal of interest, lack of compassion, diminished trust and love

Positive: Guilt, shame and anxiety are seen as signals to build compassion and connection

Negative: Guilt, shame and anxiety are thrown on each other

Positive: Flexible compassion screens: having your own feelings while being sympathetic to those of your loved ones

Negative: Rigid or porous compassionate screens increase responsiveness: supporting the feelings of loved ones, challenging them or excluding them

Positive: General positive regard allows focus on areas of life without attachment

Negative: High level of resentment keeps focus on attachment at the expense of work and personal development

Positive: Privacy and sharing are in balance

Negative: Secrecy or compulsive reporting

Positive: Self-regulation and emotional connection

Negative: Emotional dependency and continual rejection anxiety

Positive: Shared responsibility

Negative: High frequency of blame and unequal division of labor and resources

Positive: Mutual empowerment, negotiation-cooperation

Negative: Power struggles

Positive: Trading and Behavior Requests

Negative: Requirements, coercion

Positive: Forgive perceived offenses

Negative: Grudges/malicious behavior

The risks of love are avoidable and treatable but left on autopilot; they grow like a cancer. Prevention requires effort, self-regulatory skills and a dedication to human values.

To get started, I’ve provided my email to register, which gets you into the “Basic Membership” category. Once I created an account, I took the personality profile assessment. I took some time with my answers and really thought about it, so I’d say the test probably took me around 45 minutes.

Once I completed the personality test, I felt that the “free” membership became practically worthless. I started getting messages I couldn’t read and matches I couldn’t see. To be honest, I don’t even know why they offer the “free” version except to “hook” people to the Premium subscription.

Basically, you have no idea if someone who contacted you might be your match unless you pay to find out. I opted for a 6 month plan which ended up being the cheapest monthly option. Be aware that memberships are paid in a lump sum and also taxed which added $9 to my bill.

Now back to the assessment of the personality profile. When you sign up for a Premium Membership, you get a more detailed PDF of your features and I thought that 23-page long report really got me right!

After that, I decided to fill out my “dating ad”, which is the logical next step after completing the quiz and paying to participate. Although the site creates a profile for you based on your responses to the assessment, Premium members are encouraged to spend time completing their personal bio. I also uploaded nine photos (you are allowed up to 24).

However, while completing this part, I continued to have things like my multi-hyphenated career tag and my smoking preference “Rejected” for some unknown reason after waiting for them to come out of phase “In Review”. Also, sometimes I would be on site, and it would freeze. So I have to log out and log back in. And I wasn’t the only one noticing these issues on both the website and the app. Other reviews on TrustPilot have complained about the same thing.

Now let’s get to the actual matches. Apparently the idea is that by handing out only 3-7 best matches per day, daters will be saved from endless scrolling and instead presented with highly compatible potential partners so they can focus on getting to know each other. of these supposedly like-minded people.

The problem with that is that every match I got was not someone I wanted to date. It felt like the preferences I had stated were pretty much ignored in the algorithm. I continued to be matched with people who lived in different states and were easily 15 outside of my preferred age range.

Even though I had set my options to the closest possible distance i.e. “matches within 50 miles” on EliteSingles, I don’t think I had a match offered in New York where I live. Most of them seemed to be hours away. Other commentators in different cities have similarly complained about the unreasonable distances to matches.

And while they say you have the option to match an additional 20 “Wildcard” matches per day (which play out like a typical app swipe – yes or no), that “Have you met?” part of the site was trying to get me to meet users in Arizona and California.

I also thought it was odd that a site that advertises “having the most educated singles” doesn’t need proof of education to sign up. Thus, this marketing appears to be based solely on member self-reporting.

Also, a lot of people don’t post pictures. If you’re matched with someone who doesn’t have a photo with their profile, EliteSingles says “no problem”, you can simply request one by clicking the “request photo” button. But it gets awkward if they send a photo and you’re not interested!

EliteSingles also alerts members when you’ve viewed their profile by sending them a direct email saying, “Kimberly appears to be interested in your profile.” And if you read a message someone sends you, EliteSingles immediately sends them a “read receipt”. There is no way to disable it.

EliteSingles advertises these features as “positives”, but personally I hated them. This is misleading because the only way to know if you might match someone is to look at their profile or read their message. Basically, this feature made me not want to look at anyone’s profile, worried that they would get an email if I was in it even if I wasn’t.

Although I had subscribed for six months, I decided to cancel my subscription after three days. I didn’t feel comfortable having my picture on the site, I wasn’t happy with any of the matches the algorithm was triggering (and I tried changing my settings a few times to see if that did a difference – it didn’t), and I felt like I was getting better matches on other dating sites.

Fortunately, I did so under the “midnight of the third working day” cancellation clause and my money was quickly and easily refunded. And with that, I disappeared from EliteSingles obviously still single – by choice.
