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.

Only cheese in mouse trap comes for free. And sometimes - glimpses of human kindness, such as this free book. Jolanda Jetten, Stephen D. Reicher, S. Alexander Haslam, Tegan Cruwy, "Together Apart: The Psychology of COVID-19" is a book by four social psychologists about the pandemic, about how we succeed and fail to deal with it and which psychological phenomenons take part in it. We do not necessarily realize that identity perception, leadership, social influence, difference between "comply" and "support", behavior change, conspiracy theories, social distancing, group threats, risk perception and management, collective trauma, mass psychology, solidarity, inequality, polarization and group identity have an impact on all of us, all at once. To be able to identify the importance and magnitude of each factor is not an easy task, but might be easier to handle after reading this great book.

Minimalism is a way of life focused on owning as few things as possible (or only as many as necessary). Besides obvious financial or time-saved-for-tidying advantages, switching to minimalism as minimalism itself has noticeable psychological benefits. Participants in this qualitative study were practitioners of minimalism. They stated that they enjoy an improved wellbeing due to increased autonomy, competence, mental space, awareness and positive emotions. Previous research also identifies themes of simplicity, pro-ecological behaviors and control on materialism. How many thing s do you own that you do not really need? And how about that mental space?... My name is Monika, I am health and nutrition psychologist. I help to deal with daily and difficult questions about behavior, thinking, emotions. I write, teach and provide psychological counselling. Book my talk to discuss minimalism and psychology!

Does minimalism, besides being nice source of content for social media, have any other benefits, for example, psychological? Apparently, it does. The research outlines four behaviors related to minimalism: clutter removal, cautious shopping, longevity (of the purchased items, I assume) and self-sufficiency. The research also found that minimalism significantly increases feeling of flourishing (nice choice of the term!) and alleviates depression. 👆 I _always_ said, that tidying is a great form of meditation, that it is also a series of calm, repetitive motions (and leads to relaxation), besides, the result is always visually pleasing!
