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 - Extraversion, first facet of it - Warmth. I stopped in my tracks immediately. This is such a... non-academic trait. If we do not talk about the temperature, then what kind of trait is that? Feels like it is right at the tip of the tongue, but what is it? One who acts as you expect, then one you want to lean to, feel secure? More academic sources say that warmth is a tendency to feel more personally intimate to others, more emotional, easier to enter into relationships, empathetic. Warm people sincerely like others and openly display their positive attitude. Perfect, isn't it? Not entirely. People who do not have a hard time to create new relationships, spend less time and effort trying to maintain and fix breaking relationships, and in general put less of deep meaning into them. Or perhaps they less often find themselves in the situation where the relationship is breaking apart? Or perhaps they just pick them up and continue without any kind of fixing? Anyway, if person has high score of Warmth in NEO PI-R, he or she will likely do well where open and quickly established relationship is an advantage, let's say sales, any kind of service, psychology as well. It may be a disadvantage in the positions where objective, critical point of view is necessary as warmth may be confused with lower competence or lack of objectivity (let's say law or academic field). Low warmth score in general will be a disadvantage in any team task and advantage for solitary work. 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.

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.

Book that I would like to recommend this week is in Lithuanian, Danutė Gailienė "Ką jie mums padarė". I am not sure if an English version exists, but it definitely should. It is not only about the psychology of the personal trauma, but also about what happens to the whole nation during wars, repressions and exile. Not only what happens in general, but also what did happen to our parents and grandparents and what does it mean to us and our children. A difficult read, excellent writing style and an important piece of knowledge. 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. Book my talk to know more. #spoonfulofreason #psychology #recommendation #book

What if... another one of the great futuristic projections, this time on dementia. Right now possibility to grow into bright and peaceful old age - instead of anxious, puzzling and psychologically insecure old age (or having a dementia) - awaits one in ten 65 year old people. In Japan, with more than 70 000 centenarians, about 4 percent or 5 million people are diagnosed with dementia. Similar future awaits all developed and aging societies. The article shares an expectation that a new simple blood test will allow to identify those at higher risk of developing Alzheimer's disease with very high confidence - and to start an early prevention program of this disease (or a whole spectrum of related diseases, as authors speculate). Yet, the recommendations for efficient prevention seem to make sense even now, and for anyone of any age: - regular physical activity - healthy and sensible eating - drinking little alcohol - maintaining low blood pressure - being active mentally, constant learning - active social life I believe such future would be brighter not only because we would have more and better medications for lonely older people with multiple diseases. Or perhaps completely not because of that.
