    when people tell you to "smile" here is one trick. First off I do personnally find it annoying when people do because sometimes it's simply when I'm concentrated and not in a bad mood. But just note that it's very easy to trick your brain. If you basically smile you can trick...

    Sometimes people create alter egos to deal with

    issues they themselves cannot deal with. This isn’t the same as dissociative identity disorder. At least, I don’t think it is because the person would still be processing the information he is receiving on the inside but it would be the alter ego taking it in from the...

    You've always buried your fears,

    locked them away deep in your subconscious. Hidden. But something is gnawing away in the darkness of your mind, isn't it? Something even you can't control.

    until I suffered an anxiety-related breakdown caused by personal struggles and a growing awareness that academia and I were not suited for each other. I still like the topic though, even in spite of the replicability crisis in the field.

    In 34 Words: The Human Mind

    The conscious is images. The subconscious is details. The images tell us a person’s true feelings show at his discretion. The details tell us how he feels, which is not how his image feels.
