Personality traits are relatively stable and unchanging components of our daily lives. We are not necessarily able to change them easily, but is still is a great idea to know them better and to understand better whether they are useful or not useful to us.
Research. Goal of it was to understand which personality traits are related to aggressive behavior. The participants recruited for this research were men of different ages, also offenders with a documented history of violent crimes and healthy nonoffender individuals with low levels of trait aggression.
Personality traits significantly related to aggressive behavior were all facets of neuroticism trait - anxiety, angry hostility, depression, self-consciousness, impulsiveness and vulnerability.
Agreeableness trait is, of course, negatively related to aggressive behavior (the stronger the trait, the less probable aggressive behavior) - that includes trust, straightforwardness, altruism, compliance. Modesty and tender-mindedness had no correlation with aggressive behavior.
The trait of conscientiousness is also negatively related to aggressive behavior - specifically competence, dutifulness, self-discipline and deliberation. Order facet, also traits of extraversion and openness to experience were also not related to aggressive behavior.

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?...

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!
