Many animals have similar systems to the ones we have Kyle Murphy Packers Jersey , and by applying the result of some experiments that was done on animals to the human beings several methods of improving the human?s life was discovered.
The monkeys that learned fear
Monkeys that doesn?t fear snakes were introduced to some snakes while being forced to listen to scary noise. Some monkeys learned to fear snakes as a result of this experiment but what?s more astonishing is that when monkeys that didn?t fear snakes were allowed to see the fear response of monkeys that fear snakes they learned how to fear snakes too!!!
Conclusion: We learn to fear things when we associate them with another event, for example a child might fear darkness after associating it with the noisy sound that happened when his mother slammed the door of a dark room.
Moreover, if a child watched an adult reacting with fear to a certain situation the child will develop fear too!!
The frog that died in the boiling water
When some frogs were thrown in boiling water they jumped very quickly out of it and managed to survive, however, when the same frogs were put into a cold water that was slowly heated all of them when the water reached boiling point because it was already to late to act.
Conclusion: We can only feel sudden changes but when the change happen over time we never feel it until its too late. People don?t develop bad habits over night nor do they experience severe behavior changes in a short period of time but everything happens bit by bit.
The Rats that failed to swim
A researcher brought some wild rats, ones that are known to be able to swim for 80 hours continuously, then frightened them and made them believe that they are stuck before throwing them in water.
Many of the wild rats died after few minutes of swimming!! The rats didn?t drawn but at some point they just gave up swimming and died!!
When the rats felt in control they were able to swim for many hours but as soon as they felt that they are not in control they lost hope and drowned!!
Conclusion: When we feel in control we can reach our maximum potential and reach what we while if we lost control we give up trying even if we have the required skills.
The dogs that learned to be helpless
Few dogs were placed in room that has a switch that can either turn on electric current and shock the dogs or turn it off. When the dogs were first shocked they kept jumping around until one dog pushed the switch and discovered that the electric current stopped.
Later on whenever the electric shock was turned on the dogs rushed to turn it off using the switch. These dogs were split into two groups where the first group remained in the same room while the second one was placed in a similar one that had a faulty switch.
When the second group was shocked the dogs tried to push the switch but nothing happened. The second group of dogs were returned to the first room then were shocked again but this time they never tried to push the switch!!!
The dogs learned to become helpless as a result of feeling helpless after pushing the faulty switch!!
Conclusion: No one is born helpless but we learn how to become helpless when we face certain situations that we fail to deal with. Always try to do something about your problems because if you didn?t act you might develop learned helplessness!!
I am the proud owner of an antilibrary. I don't own any books that I have read. That's not to say that I haven't read any books. Quite to the contrary, I have read a mountain of them, but as soon as I get to the end of the last page, I either mail them to friends or simply throw them out. I believe that only unread books have value.
Look at the book shelves of most any person and you will see all the books they have read. People buy a book, read it, and put it on the shelf like an ornament. People keep their books because it makes them feel intelligent to look at everything they have read. It's as if they believe that for every 10 books they finish and put on the shelf, they gain one I.Q. point.
This approach never made any sense to me. Once I read a book, I'm done with it. What am I going to do, read the same book twice? Logically, I know that I get much more value out of reading two different books than out of reading one book twice. If I happen to read something that really hits me, I take notes by putting it into an electronic knowledge depository on my computer. Once it's there, keeping track of these gems of insight becomes much easier than looking for highlighted pages inside of a physical book. Now you may think that the process of taking notes requires a lot of time, but you would be wrong. The average book I read has no more than three things that make it into my electronic knowledge depository. The most influential book I read last year resulted in less than one page of notes.
If you read one book on a subject you know nothing about, such as the mating habits of the endangered African penguins, every page of that one book will contain new information for you. Take notes, and you'll end up rewriting most of the book. An interesting thing happens, however, if you read 20 books on that subject. By the time you read number 20, you have actually encountered the same information over and over again. At this point, repetition has burned the relevant information into your memory, but the other reason you remember the information so well is that different authors have pre.
