Monika Kuzminskaitė on PsychologyHealth psychologist, with special love for food and eating mattersSome time ago
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 facet of neuroticism trait - angry hostility. One of the less frequently mentioned, but still a very important, with a socio-cultural twist. We are often taught not to be angry, because it is not nice, not polite - we learn to swallow the anger, which is really harmful to our physical health. It is also harmful to our mental health, because we fail to use the fantastic source of energy. So, high score of angry hostility in NEO PI-R results shows the tendency to feel anger, frustration, bitterness. IT is important to stress that it shows _readiness_ to feel anger - whether the anger will actually be shown, depends on the score of Agreeableness. This is exactly where the "twist" is - if you do not allow yourself to feel anger, you push this wonderful energy away from the sight. Good idea is not to deny yourself to feel anger, but to learn expressing this anger in most productive ways (where yelling and hitting people is not a productive way). Positive aspects of high score - you have a great source of energy. Negative - if you never stopped to learn acceptable anger expressions, then you instantly waste this energy, besides, you bear the consequences of your behavior through behavior of other people they choose in return to your actions. Low angry hostility score show likely tendency to be careless and have a low tendency to get angry. Positive side of this score is significantly less stress on your nervous system, more freedom to choose whether you want to react to something or not. Negative aspect - you may simply lack energy for some projects and activities. It is not surprising that high angry hostility is a valuable trait for people who work in different enforcement positions. If you need to display a very strong and decisive position - then you cannot really have any doubts. Low score is beneficial to the positions that require an amazing level of patience - call centers or any other positions that have responsibility of accepting complaints, for example.

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 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.
