why our relationships fail - Robin S. Cohen, Ph.D. How do we first begin to experience love? Perhaps as babies, as early psychoanalysts Fairbairn and Guntrip believed, the only way we could feel loved was by having our needs met. The language of bodily transformation was the language of love. Mommy feeds us, changes our diaper or picks us up and we feel satisfied. This feeling of satisfaction and security may be the early equivalent to feeling loved.

This is really more of a side effect of the way that computer sales work. As a computer salesman, my goal is to pair you with a computer that (a) you'll be able to use to accomplish everything you want to do with a computer, including things you weren't thinking about (games, netflix) but that you'll use the thing for anyway, (b) that is capable of running things that your workplace / school will require of you, and also (c) that fits into your lifestyle well enough that it's something you'll be happy to keep using.

Manipulation News, Videos, Reviews and Gossip - Lifehacker @septentriones: Haha, what you're saying is actually quite indeed close to correct, though there is a bit more. We are a culmination of our experiences, but that doesn't mean that our minds cannot advance further than that, for all that is required is the idea of an experience, for example, I have never been sledding down a mountain. However, I can imagine a sled, imagine a mountain, and myself in motion, so I can build the idea of the experience.
Top 10 Conversation Hacks
By Scott Berkun, August 9, 2006 Everyone lies: it’s just a question of how, when and why. From the relationship saving “yes, you do look thin in those pants” to the improbable “your table will be ready in 5 minutes”, manipulating the truth is part of the human condition. Accept it now. I’m positive that given our irrational nature and difficultly accepting tough truths, we’re collectively better off with some of our deceptions.

The Neuroscience of Relationship Breakups "...Loves me, loves me not" An unexpected and unwanted breakup can cause considerable psychological distress. People report feeling as if they have been kicked in the stomach or blindsided and knocked down. Feelings of rejection and self-doubt are common, as is the feeling of being stuck and unable to let go, even when one wants to. Friends and family may push the person to get over it and move on, yet brain research suggests this can be very difficult to do, at least in the first few months.
Defense mechanisms are automatic psychological processes that protect an individual from anxiety and the awareness of internal or external threats or stressors. People are often unaware of these processes as they operate (although others may be painfully aware of them!).

Professor Declan Murphy and colleagues Dr Michael Craig and Dr Marco Catani from the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London have found differences in the brain which may provide a biological explanation for psychopathy. The research investigated the brain biology of psychopaths with convictions that included attempted murder, manslaughter, multiple rape with strangulation and false imprisonment. Using a powerful imaging technique (DT-MRI) the researchers have highlighted biological differences in the brain which may underpin these types of behaviour and provide a more comprehensive understanding of criminal psychopathy. Dr Michael Craig said: 'If replicated by larger studies the significance of these findings cannot be underestimated. Brain Difference In Psychopaths Identified
