15 Disturbing Forms of Verbal Abuse in Relationships - you need to be able to recognize them in you and in others, because words hurt hurt as much as fists, and leave no scars. 1. Withholding - when you say only part of information, and leave the rest hanging in the air, like "keys are there" 2. Countering - when you say "no", "but", "why", "what about you" as beginning of each answer 3. Discounting - when you show that your partner has no right to feel ("I already have a headache, I can't take you and your anxiety right now") 4. Verbal abuse disguised as jokes ("c'mon, silly, I am joking") 5. Blocking and diverting - especially when your partner clearly does not like to talk about the topic, such as money, weight or children 6. Accusing and blaming ("this is you fault that I cannot do X"). 7. Judging and criticizing ("you can never be happy for me"). 8. Trivializing ("I'd love to have your problems"). 9. Undermining ("you are talking nonsense, this is not worth my time"). 10. Threatening ("If you don't stop doing X, I am leaving"). 11. Name calling (anything between obvious "idiot" to not so obvious "you are such a victim"). 12. Forgetting - no matter if it is big or small thing to forget, attempt to remember is missing, and it hurts. 13. Ordering ("now you get up and go buy X"). 14. Denial ("I have done no such thing"). 15. Abusive anger - any form of aggressive speech. No yelling is deserved.

Ahah I am an expert of verbal abuses in relationships. I find it wired. Moreover I never understood so much the meaning of speaking like you speak to explain a story but the end point of a discussion can be either ‘let’s do it’ or a intermediate point between the beliefs of one person and the one of the other person but would you really change your mind after a conversation? What’s the point then in changing your mind, is it really so important on what you think, is there a practical meaning in what you think?

Podcast I would like to recommend - "Infinite Monkey Cage". While it covers a very wide range of topics, today I enjoyed "Science of Dreaming", and there is more on human mind and psychology related subjects. It is difficult to discuss such a subjective field with so much reliance on memory and personal interpretation, but these guys do it brilliantly. Podcast hosts - Brian Cox and Robin Ince with a panel of cool guests for each episode. Episode on dreaming: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0008wtj My name is Monika, I am psychologist.

More/again about the robots and psychology. As we know, robots need to be made to have some human like features to make their job easier. It actually is a real problem - if humans are awkward about the robots, then robots cannot help people as well as they could, or people do not trust robots with the tasks at all. So, this is an area of research now. If robot is assessed to be high on agreeableness, emotional stability and conscientiousness (!), then people are more likely to have a positive outlook towards it. The longer people interact with the robot, the more they are likely to like it - even if they were regarded as weird looking in the beginning. My name is Monika, I am psychologist. I help to deal with daily and difficult questions about behavior, thinking, emotions. I write, counsel and teach.

I decided to write a bit more about the personality traits - I keep writing about the NEO PI-R inventory and the research using it. So my plan is to write about all thirty facets and five big traits that this inventory reports. Second trait - Openness. This is a trait composed of six facets: fantasy (active imagination), aesthetics (sensitivity to art forms), feelings (attentiveness to inner feelings), actions (adventurousness, preference for variety), ideas (intellectual curiosity) and values (psychological liberalism). Most people fall in the middle between high and low scores. Low score predicts a person who is more traditional in thinking, behavior and appearance. People who score high tend to be more involved in creativity and learning, they will always prefer a new taste and untried road. Society as usual requires balance - accumulated knowledge and experience from traditionalists and continuous learning and inventions from the radical liberals. And most of the others who usually adapt their behaviors to the situation and may use both sides of the continuum. My name is Monika, I am psychologist. I help to deal with daily and difficult questions about behavior, thinking, emotions. I write, counsel and teach. Photo: Peter H from Pixabay #spoonfulofreason #psychology #neopir #openness
