How does your personality affect your investment decisions? Oh, you thought that these are rational decisions and they have nothing in common with your individual traits? So here is a seed of doubt for you. The research is done in Pakistan, among students, but printed in Europe - here I invite to consider whether it may differ from your cultural environment and whether they may be significant - but doubt is doubt, and now you will think about it anyway :) - People with prominent traits of extraversion, agreeableness and conscientiousness when making investment decisions, tend to choose short term financial goals and objectives (like "will get some profit in a week") - when looking at the results it seems that strong traits of neuroticism and openness to experience may even be barriers to decision - People with prominent extraversion and conscientiousness traits only tend to prefer long term financial goals and objectives (like "will invest in a house") Extraversion and conscientiousness are the important traits in both cases, and instinctively I'd like to remove them from equation - on the other hand, people with low values of these traits might not get involved in the investment decisions altogether. But agreeableness looks like a more important trait for short term investment (something like investment into good relationships) while longer term plans probably need more focus on the person himself or herself. Probably like this :) 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 know more!

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!

Today I would like to recommend a book - Jon Kabat-Zinn "Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness meditation for everyday life". Meditation is one of the most valuable skills that you can learn to improve and maintain your health in a good condition. This means your mental health as well as your physical health, which is definitely very much related to and dependant on your psychological balance. The author is Western so the book does not contain multiple words that are not relatable to our daily life and language. I also would like to dissipate another often used and incorrect idea - meditation is not a practice of silencing your thoughts. Meditation is practice of concentrating your focus on your passing thoughts, on may object or action. You may meditate while cleaning your home, walking, or sitting down. You don't need to have a mat, sit in lotus pose or burn incense - you may choose to use it all ar one of it, if it helps you to focus. Take a breath. Lightly exhale.

What does brain do when we watch a movie? Results of the magnetic resonance reveal that we get more involved (that is more coordinated brain activity is dedicated) in more emotional scenes. This higher involvement state is rather similar among different people - we kind of get synchronized. When involvement is lower, then mind "wanders" in an individual manner, and the state is quite distinct for each person. When following the movie review people were asked to recall the movie, it was possible to predict what the story will feature - they were the same higher involvement and more intense emotion scenes. I only wonder what my brain does when I watch Fawlty Towers for several hundredth time... My name is Monika, I am health and nutrition psychologist.
