New Songs. 13 Habits of Exceptionally Likeable People page 1. By Dr. Travis Bradberry inShare4,522 Too many people succumb to the mistaken belief that being likeable comes from natural, unteachable traits that belong only to a lucky few—the good looking, the fiercely social, and the incredibly talented. It’s easy to fall prey to this misconception. In reality, being likeable is under your control, and it’s a matter of emotional intelligence (EQ). In a study conducted at UCLA, subjects rated over 500 adjectives based on their perceived significance to likeability. These adjectives, and others like them, describe people who are skilled in the social side of emotional intelligence. We did some digging to uncover the key behaviors that emotionally intelligent people engage in that make them so likeable. 1. The biggest mistake people make when it comes to listening is they’re so focused on what they’re going to say next or how what the other person is saying is going to affect them that they fail to hear what’s being said. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

New Method Helps You Learn Skills Twice As Fast. What’s the best way to learn a new skill, such as playing the guitar? Multiple hours spent doing the same task over and over is thought to be the optimal strategy – practice makes perfect, as many would say. However, a new study in Current Biology has revealed that varying your training regime, and not making it so repetitive, may actually double the speed at which you learn. Eighty-six volunteers were recruited by a team of researchers from Johns Hopkins University, and asked to learn a new skill: Moving a cursor around a screen by squeezing a small, touch-sensitive device, rather than using a traditional mouse. The volunteers were segregated into three groups. The first (the controls) were only given one 45-minute-long training session. The second group were given one training session, then asked to wait six hours before they repeated the same exercise. The next day, all three groups were asked to repeat the first training session with the original device sensitivity restored.

50 Things You Should Stop Buying & Start Making. As a society, we have become over-reliant on “ready made” products. We have lost the ability to make things from scratch. Rather than blend up some peanuts to make delicious, tasty and fresh peanut butter, we’ll spend many dollars on a jar from the store that contains artificial preservatives, unnecessary packaging and that simply lines the pockets of huge, unethical multinational corporations. Aside from foods, you can also make your own personal care products, beauty and make up products, cleaning products and home accessories that taste, work or look better than store bought, without the harmful chemicals and toxins and free from excessive, earth damaging packaging.

Next Page >>> 6 Mind Expanding Movies That Will Make You Question Reality And Life. By Sofia Some movies are made to touch our heart and soul with an overabundance of sentiment. They make us come in touch with our humanity and empathy. And some films are made to touch our mind, to get our mental cogs working, to awaken and expand our consciousness.

They are films that deal with questions that we are all too eager and too afraid to ponder. 1. What is a dream, and what is reality? 2. “Samsara” is a little documentary film made in 2011, by the same people who had collaborated on two similar in terms of style and theme films in the last decades, “Baraka” and “Chronos”. 3. “Uncle Boonmee” came out in 2010 and was the first Thai film to win the Palme d’Or.

The film was actually the last part of a loosely linked film trilogy, titled “Primitive”, and was mostly focused on a particular area of Thailand. It deals with matters of memory, transformation, reincarnation, and the nature of things facing death. 4. 5. Otherwise known as “acid on film“. 6. Literally, anything.

Since ages, it has played an instrumental role in portraying and foretelling the stories of mankind.

It has picked up several themes: existentialism being one of them. Existentialism has been an area of curiosity since mid-20th century among artists, painters, writers and filmmakers. Although the roots of existentialism goes back to 19th century, where Soren Kierkegaard and Friedrich Nietzsche began to explore the meaning and worth of human life in changing times.
