"[1] Positive psychologists seek "to find and nurture genius and talent" and "to make normal life more fulfilling",[2] rather than merely treating mental illness.

Positive psychology is primarily concerned with using the psychological theory, research and intervention techniques to understand the positive, adaptive, creative and emotionally fulfilling aspects of human behavior.[3] Overview[edit] Research from this branch of psychology has seen various practical applications.

Reversal theory emerged in the early 1970s, created and developed by K. This early work led to the description of a dynamic system, based on the concept of the “reversal:” the switching between opposed motivational states. The theory is structured around four domains of experience, each corresponding to two opposed motivational states. Just getting started?
