French TV contestants made to inflict 'torture' A French TV documentary features people in a spoof game show administering what they are told are near lethal electric shocks to rival contestants. Those taking part are told to pull levers to inflict shocks - increasing in voltage - upon their opponents. Although unaware that the contestants were actors and there was no electrical current, 82% of participants in the Game of Death agreed to pull the lever. Programme makers say they wanted to expose the dangers of reality TV shows. They say the documentary shows how many participants in the setting of a TV show will agree to act against their own principles or moral codes when ordered to do something extreme. The Game of Death has all the trappings of a traditional TV quiz show, with a roaring crowd chanting "punishment" and a glamorous hostess urging the players on.

Big Five personality traits In psychology, the Big Five personality traits are five broad domains or dimensions of personality that are used to describe human personality. The theory based on the Big Five factors is called the five-factor model (FFM). The five factors are openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. Acronyms commonly used to refer to the five traits collectively are OCEAN, NEOAC, or CANOE. Beneath each global factor, a cluster of correlated and more specific primary factors are found; for example, extraversion includes such related qualities as gregariousness, assertiveness, excitement seeking, warmth, activity, and positive emotions.:24 The Big Five model is able to account for different traits in personality without overlapping.
Top 10 Things That Determine Happiness photo: meddygarnet Happiness is, by nature, a subjective quality with a definition like a moving target. There is scant evidence — qualitative or quantitative — to lend convincing support to those life variables most critical in determining individual happiness, which is likely why past researchers committed to the scientific method rarely tried to tackle the subject.

CliftonStrengths At Gallup, we recently began shifting the brand from StrengthsFinder to CliftonStrengths. We're changing the name of the engine that powers strengths-based development around the world. The CliftonStrengths assessment is the same online assessment that millions of people have used to tap into their talents to succeed. It's the same assessment invented by Don Clifton.

For his efforts, the American Psychological Association honored Clifton with a Presidential Commendation as the Father of Strengths-Based Psychology.

Ornithomancy: Divination from the Flight and Cries of Birds Birds are majestic creatures and have long fascinated humankind as messengers of the spirit world. With the ability to walk on land and fly through the air at will, to live among the trees and bask in the glory of the earth’s bodies of water, these amazing creatures are mystical enigmas. Divination from the flight and cries of these wondrous creatures is an ancient practice dating back to ancient Greece (ornithomancy) and Rome (auspicy), although other cultures used this ancient art as well. This form of divination is easy to use and involves learning the meanings and symbolism of three separate things: 1) the actions of birds 2) the color of birds 3) different bird species. Once you have mastered those three challenges, you will become a natural at bird divination. How do you begin?
