The objective of this study was to identify factors derived from psychological models predictive of an evidence-based clinical behaviour, the placing of PFS in six to sixteen year old patients in Scotland. A theory-based questionnaire was developed to assess constructs from six models and applied to the prediction of clinical decision-making based on scenarios (behavioural simulation), as well as dentists intention to place PFS to manage caries in this age group.. Of the six models, only the CS-SRM did not explain a significant proportion of the variance in both behavioural simulation and intention. Only behavioural stage did not account for significant variance in behavioural simulation. The usual approaches to measuring behavioural stage in the literature were used in this study, but a more complex approach may be more informative in terms of the number and the nature of the stages when applied to clinical decision-making in specific situations (as depicted by the scenarios) rather than to a ...
Modern psychology has redefined the way we look at the human brain. We understand today that all of human behavior, motivation and personality stems from the foundation our brain establishes from the moment we exist. The world around us and how we react to it defines modern psychology. The human brain is the most complex…

This course provides a general introduction to the psychological theory and research in the areas of social, personality, developmental, health, and abnormal psychology. Broadly speaking, the course highlights the scientific approach to the study of behavior. We will examine such topics as how social interactions affect self-perception, how people make decisions about the causes and factors that influence their own behavior, what types of psychological and biological processes might contribute to individual differences (i.e., personality traits), what is the structure of personality, what processes might underlie normal development of cognition, speech, and emotional expression, what are the important stages of development, what is mental illness, what are the biological, social, and psychological processes that influence the development of mental disorders, what types of mental disorders are there, and how can they be effectively treated or prevented. It is assumed that all students enrolled in ...

Introduction. Outline and assess none sociological theories of crime and deviance? Deviance is behavior that violates the norms and values of society and induces a negative reaction in a majority of the members of that society. An example of this would be burping in public. Crime is also behavior that violates the norms and values of society, however the behavior is deemed so bad to society that the state has put in place rules and punishments to stop this behavior from happening. An example of this is murder, and the punishment in UK is life imprisonment. Functionalist believe that deviance isnt a bad thing and that every society will generate deviance and have crime rates because the existence of norms and values and individual differences create deviance and rule breaking. There are many none sociological theories of crime and deviance. They can be split up into two categories biological and psychological theories. First I will look at biological theories and outline and assess their views ...

In his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Denial of Death, cultural anthropologist Ernest Becker attempted to develop a unified theory of human behavior. He argued that it was the human capacity to grasp and contemplate our own mortality-and our need to suppress this knowledge-that was at the root of human culture and behavior, from genocide to altruism, religion to philosophy. Terror Management Theory (TMT) is a psychological theory directly based on Beckers work, developed by a group of social psychologists interested in testing Beckers assertions about death as a core motivator of human behavior. Over the last 25 years, psychologists in the North America, Europe and the Middle East have conducted hundreds of studies to test hypothesis derived from Beckers work and the Terror Management Theory it inspired. This body of research compellingly supports Beckers thesis and reveals the ways in which mortality salience influences behaviors ranging from aggression and stereotyping to creativity and ...

Downloadable! This paper reviews the literature on one of the most meaningful concepts in modern behavioural finance, the overconfidence phenomenon. Overconfidence is presented as a well-developed psychological theory, with main facets comprising miscalibration, betterthan- average effect, illusion of control and unrealistic optimism. The primary applications of overconfidence in contemporary finance are analysed, from the perspective of financial markets and corporate behaviour. Experimental studies, formal models and analyses of market data demonstrate that overconfidence at least partially solves some financial market puzzles that cannot be accounted for by standard economic theory. Overconfidence in the corporate context may affect not only a companys internal financing structure, but also its interactions with other market participants through merger and acquisition activity.
Topic 2: Conflict and Cooperation. Generally, cognitive neuroscience aims to explain how mental processes such as believing, knowing, and inferring arise in the brain and affect behavior. Two behaviors that have important effects on the survival of humans are cooperation and conflict.. According to the NSF committee convened last year, conflict and cooperation is an important focus area for future cognitive neuroscience work. Although research in this area has typically been the domain of psychologists, it seems that the time is ripe to apply findings from neuroscience to ground psychological theories in the underlying biology.. Neuroscience has produced a large amount of information about the brain regions that are relevant to social interactions. For example, the amygdala has been shown to be involved in strong emotional responses. The "mirror" neuron system in the frontal lobe allows us to put ourselves in someone elses shoes by allowing us to understand their actions as though they were our ...

While the general wisdom has it that behaviorism is dead, it not only survives but is intellectually active in areas such as psychological theory, the analysis of language and cognition, and behavioral economics. It is a successful, albeit limited, source of behavioral science. Its chief difficulty arises when its practitioners look out from their laboratory windows and attempt to explain the complexities of human behavior that will never be amenable to direct experimental investigation. Behavior analysis has failed to establish a methodology of interpretation to deal fully with such complexity. The message of this essay is that it cannot do so without embracing intentional explanation in the form of an interpretive overlay that plugs the gaps in its explanations of life beyond the lab.. ...

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J. When we are confronted with the acts of excessive and unprovoked violence, we cant help but wonder what is wrong with individuals committing such crimes. Think of serial killers: what motivates them? Both researchers and society, in general, have wanted to know how to explain the extreme brutality observed in some people. In most cases, they have no mental disorders that could explain their behavior. Even without going to the extremes, most of us did at some point in life come across people whose level of aggressiveness seemed beyond any reasonable explanation. Think of a hooligan looking for any excuse to pick a fight and beat someone up. Or a young boy torturing a defenseless animal with a smile on his face. Multiple theories were invented to this end, ranging from religious explanations (satanic possession) to scientific and psychological theories that involve a variety of mental disorders or problems with brain development.. The idea that excessive aggressiveness and ...
The very existence of the gender pay gap remains controversial, with some writers arguing that it does not exist, or that it exists for reasons other than structural inequality which disadvantages women.. But why does the gender gap remain controversial?. And why might people be opposed to action aimed at reducing it?. Threatening the ingroup. It may seem clear why men, for example, might question the existence of the gender pay gap. Organisations only have finite funds. Paying women more to reduce this gap directly affects men who may find their pay frozen or reduced in order to achieve the aim of equal pay based on gender.. We know from social psychological theory such as intergroup threat theory that groups are likely to see members of other groups as threats in many different ways, including as a direct threat to their own groups resources. There is also evidence that when people think about actions aimed at benefiting minority groups, they tend to concentrate on the potential effects on ...
Delineating the basic psychosocial and neurobiological processes of human cognition has been the principal goal of cognitive scientists throughout the past decades. Distinct lines of study have formed for the purposes of this undertaking, each with its own set of pros and cons. For instance, neuroimaging techniques link neural activity (or indirect measures of neural activity) with experimental manipulations that may not necessarily be informed by formal psychological theory. Behavioral approaches (e.g., psychophysics) potentially capture subjective experience but yield results that may not necessarily be predicted by models of cognition based solely on brain data. Computational models and quantitative descriptions of behavior (e.g., response time, performance accuracy) to infer cognitive processing sometimes do not take biological constraints into consideration. In recent years, the integration of these seemingly divergent approaches has led to the development of models that aim to unify brain and
This five-year longitudinal research study is designed to follow a diverse sample of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth, ages 15-24, and to examine changes in constellations, maginitudes, and developmental sequences of risk and protective factors for suicidal behaviors with a particular emphasis on the major components of the interpersonal psychological theory of suicide. Simultaneously, it is documenting whether or not the risk and protective factors for suicide are uniquely related to LGBT youths developmental milestones.. ...
Psychological theory has traditionally overlooked or minimized the role of siblings in development, focusing instead on parent-child attachment relationships. The importance of sisters has been even more marginalized. Sue A.

I get a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach when I read We did give electroshock therapy to thousands of patients during those same years, and all we managed to do was to separate a persons feelings from his consciousness; separate his memories from conscious/awareness. To make him emotionless and ahistoric. Is that what we want? There is something about that that brings me to the sick feeling of too much pain killer which I experienced shortly after back surgery. I never went for drugs because they all made me feel disconnected. What is life without a feeling connection? I am remembering when I used methods to ease first line pressure, something that seemed to get in the way of real connection or give me a rebound that I felt as anxiety. Ok, I dont want to go so far that this is a therapy session, but the reason psychological theories other than yours makes me angry and sick inside, just like religion, is that it is a kind of numbness to life. I cant see how that can help anyone. I am ...

Talk if you can find someone who will listen.. I have a psychologist, an excellent one, to whom I bare my soul. He knows everything about me, the good things I do and the bad. He is an essential support. He helps me sift through my emotions, try to understand myself better, he is well educated on the currently accepted psychological theories on pretty much everything. He reframes what I am going through into a larger context and helps me put it into perspective.. He is very good at what he does.. But this is what he doesnt do. This is what he cant do:. He cant make me feel loved.. He cant make me feel like a worthwhile human being. He cant make me feel like a good person. He cant make me feel important in someone elses life.. He knows me well enough to know that I get a good deal of my self esteem from helping others. I was always this way, because I could be. I had heaps of energy, and heaps left over to give. When I got sick, I lost that energy, but I didnt lose that desire. I ...
What the sick hoped to be cured of was sometimes described as a pathos (from which our term pathology comes), but that term could include anything that happened to you or that you underwent or suffered (the cognate verb pascho has those senses). Pathe were not necessarily negative items, ailments that had to be removed. The word is often translated affection or feeling and in Greek psychological theories it is often interpreted by modern scholars as denoting especially what we call the emotions. The trouble about Masters of Truth was: could you believe them? There were rather a lot of them and they came in different guises. While the claims they made for themselves- or that were made for them-were that they had special powers, their being special immediately posed problems: what was the origin of these powers? Was it entirely benign? How could they be understood? Could they indeed be believed? We shall see these themes return in our next study. 1 Homer, Iliad 1. 8-26, 33-108 Who then of ...
By leaving their engines idling for long periods, drivers contribute unnecessarily to air pollution, waste fuel, and produce noise and fumes that harm the environment. Railway level crossings are sites where many cars idle, many times a day. In this research, testing two psychological theories of influence, we examine the potential to encourage drivers to switch off their ignition while waiting at rail crossings. Two field studies presented different signs at a busy rail crossing site with a 2-min average wait. Inducing public self-focus (via a Watching Eyes stimulus) was not effective, even when accompanied by a written behavioral instruction. Instead, cueing a private-self focus (think of yourself) was more effective, doubling the level of behavioral compliance. These findings confirm the need to engage the self when trying to instigate self-regulatory action, but that cues evoking self-surveillance may sometimes be more effective than cues that imply external surveillance ...
We describe an experiment in which the eye movements of participants, carrying out tasks using two contrasting graph designs, were recorded by means of a remote eye tracking device. A variety of eye movement properties were measured and analysed both temporally and spatially. Both graph designs were based on specific psychological theories and established graph design guidelines. One incorporated attributes thought likely to enhance usability, the other included attributes likely to have the opposite effect. The results demonstrate that the design and location of a graphs legend and its spatial relationship to the data area are extremely important in determining a graphs usability. The incorporation of these and other design features may promote or detract from perceptual proximity and therefore influence a displays usability. The paper demonstrates that this influence is reflected in eye movement patterns, which can be readily monitored by means of a remote eye tracking system, and that a ...

The aim of this module is to provide the student with tangible experience of applying psychology theory to practice. Rather than focus on psychopathology, the module focuses on utilising established positive psychology approaches in supporting psychological growth, well-being and resilience. During the first half of the module, students will study the theoretical underpinnings of positive psychology and will work in small groups to design a positive psychology well-being intervention. During the final half of the module, the well-being intervention will be delivered to fellow undergraduate student across all years. Skills gained in this module will support future applications for assistant psychology posts in addition to other support roles with the aim of pursuing a career as a psychologist. Skills gained in this module are also applicable to other established careers such as social work, nursing, occupational therapy or further academic study (e.g. PhD). The module is a unique opportunity to ...

The management of depression and other negative psychological states in cardiac patients has been a focus of multiple treatment trials, though such trials have not led to substantial improvements in cardiac outcomes. In contrast, there has been minimal focus on interventions to increase positive psychological states in cardiac patients, despite the fact that optimism and other positive states have been associated with superior cardiovascular outcomes. Our objective was to develop an 8-week, phone-based positive psychology intervention for patients hospitalized with acute cardiac disease (acute coronary syndrome or decompensated heart failure). Such an intervention would consist of positive psychology exercises adapted for this specific population, and it would need to be feasible for practitioners and patients in real-world settings. By adapting exercises that were previously validated in healthy individuals, we were able to generate a positive psychology telemedicine intervention for cardiac ...

5 Tips for Parents from Positive Psychology 1. Test and Learn vs. Plan and Implement How we learn is a topic that many researchers have studied. Many people think that we should first plan something, and then implement it, but the fact is, when it comes to transformational learning, you want to do the exact opposite. Parents should encourage their children to explore possibilities, and then reflect on what went well and opportunities to make changes. By taking a test and learn approach with your children, they will learn better and be able to make better decisions in the future because they will have learned from experience. 2. Create a 5-to-1 Positivity Ratio If negative interactions and positive interactions were superheroes, negative interactions would win in a battle. This is because negative interactions are simply stronger than positive interactions. Research shows that we need to experience 5 positive interactions to 1 negative interaction at home, in order to be able to overcome our ...

Introduction. Positive psychology has fundamentally changed and challenged the way in which psychologists think about the way people should be studied (Cameron, Dutton & Quinn, 2003). In contrast to a deficit focus, positive psychology emphasises human strengths, giving attention to fulfilling the lives of healthy people (Seligman, 2002). In line with the development of positive psychology, with its focus on human flourishing, recent research in occupational psychology has shifted towards positive aspects of work (Naudé & Rothmann, 2004). For many years, research in occupational psychology was framed within a disease model with the emphasis on dysfunction and negative aspects of work such as stress and burnout (Balducci, Fraccaroli & Schaufeli, 2010; Storm & Rothmann, 2003). In this regard, and in part due to the limited number of positive constructs in occupational psychology, work engagement has emerged as a prominent and popular area of research (Cilliers & May, 2010; Seppälä et al, ...

Application of Health Behavior Theories to Breast Cancer Screening among Asian Women Breast cancer screening;health behavior theories;Asian women; Background: Although breast cancer is a major public health worry among Asian women, adherence to screening for the disease remains an obstacle to its prevention. A variety of psycho-social and cultural factors predispose women to delay or avoidance of screening for breast cancer symptoms at the early stages when cure is most likely to be successful. Yet few interventions implemented to date to address this condition in this region have drawn on health behavior theory. Materials and Methods: This paper reviews the existing literature on several cognitive theories and models associated with breast cancer screening, with an emphasis on the work that has been done in relation to Asian women. To conduct this review, a number of electronic databases were searched with context-appropriate inclusion criteria. Results: Little empirical work was found that

Mass media campaigns, whether they are used as a drug prevention or health promotion tool, tend to be based (explicitly or implicitly) on a number of psychological theories and models. These are summarised below.. Media campaigns that aim to prevent drug use by providing information are based on the health belief model (Glanz et al., 2002). Under this model, awareness about the severity of a health condition along with knowledge of the benefits of actions to avoid it is essential for healthy behaviour. Therefore, the provision of factual information about the negative effects and dangers of drugs is supposed to deter use.. The theory of reasoned action or planned behaviour (Ajzen, 1991) proposes that an individuals behavioural intentions have three constituent parts: the individuals attitude towards the behaviour, the social norms as perceived by the individual, and the perceived control over ones own behaviour. According to this model, drug use is a consequence of a rational decision ...

Abstract: "Describes many recently emerged psychotherapeutic procedures which have caused a "psychoboom" and are practiced not only by professional therapists, but by self-styled mystics and gurus. Several of these so-called humanistic therapeutic procedures have only vague theoretical frameworks and can be defined as transpersonal psychological theories and therapies. Awareness psychotherapies, transactional analysis, and primal therapy are well known in Germany. A recent form of psychotherapy (catathymic imaging), indicated for neurotic and psychosomatic disorders, is evaluated ...
A brief historical analysis of the general concept of hallucination is presented and the suggestion is made that it emerged as the unwarranted generalisation of a perceptual model that was meant to apply only to vision and the "distance senses". Against this background the evolution of tactile hallucinations is considered and its interaction with 19th century psychological theory explored. It is concluded that tactile hallucinations are sui generis phenomena which do not fit the conventional model and whose clinical identification rests on criteria so far unclear. A brief review of their taxonomy and diagnostic usefulness is presented. Some wider implications are drawn which should be relevant to the general concept of hallucination.. ...
To stem the spread of infectious diseases, epidemiologists use contact tracing interviews to identify individuals who may need treatment or, if indicated, quarantine or isolation. Given the high stakes, the most exhaustive list of potentially infected contacts must be reported. However, standard contact tracing procedures may fail to extract the most complete report possible from sick individuals. One of the most reliable methods for maximizing recall is the Cognitive Interview (CI). The CI uses several techniques grounded in psychological theory and was expected to increase the number of contacts listed during contact tracing interviewing compared to a standard contact tracing interview. In Study One, participants imagined they were infected with meningococcal meningitis, and reported every person with whom they had physical contact, shared saliva, or lived with over the previous three days (i.e., at a high risk for developing meningococcal meningitis). Participants were interviewed with either a CI or

Utgångspunkten för denna uppsats har varit sambandet mellan autonomi, självständig motivation och målkongruens. Sambandet har hämtats från Self-Determination Theory, där autonomi anses vara en förutsättning för att uppleva självständig motivation som i sin tur anses viktigt för att skapa målkongruens i en organisation. Då autonomi inte är en självklarhet inom alla yrken har syftet med studien varit att undersöka sambandet mellan motivation och målkongruens bland anställda med standardiserade arbetsuppgifter på ett produktionsföretag. Fallföretaget för studien har varit Sandvik AB som verkar inom tillverkningsindustrin. Det empiriska materialet har inhämtats på en och samma avdelning genom intervjuer med en produktionschef samt nio anställda. De anställda har även besvarat en enkät om motivation gentemot arbetet. Det empiriska materialet har analyserats utifrån Self-Determination Theory och teori om målkongruens. Studien har visat att respondenterna med ...
Barbara Frederickson and colleagues developed the Broaden-and-build theory which emphasizes the role of positive emotions and thoughts in growth. If youre more positive, then you are more likely to be active and to pursue your goals. Of course, those in pain are frustrated, but the Broaden-and-build theory suggests that we can induce positive affect in others. How can we do that?. A recent trial for knee osteoarthritis shows how we can use positive psychology interventions to decrease negativity - and even decrease pain. One easy exercise to use from the protocol is the "3 good things" exercise. For this, write down three good things that happen each day, and include explanations for why they were successful.. The Self-determination Theory suggests that humans have basic psychological needs for autonomy, competence, and relatedness. We want to feel free to choose what they want to do; we want to feel good at what we do; and we want to feel connected to one another. Physios have the opportunity ...
There is an important gap between the implications of clinical research evidence and the routine clinical practice of healthcare professionals. Because individual decisions are often central to adoption of a clinical-related behaviour, more information about the cognitive mechanisms underlying behaviours is needed to improve behaviour change interventions targeting healthcare professionals. The aim of this study was to systematically review the published scientific literature about factors influencing health professionals behaviours based on social cognitive theories. These theories refer to theories where individual cognitions/thoughts are viewed as processes intervening between observable stimuli and responses in real world situations. We searched psycINFO, MEDLINE, EMBASE, CIHNAL, Index to theses, PROQUEST dissertations and theses and Current Contents for articles published in English only. We included studies that aimed to predict healthcare professionals intentions and behaviours with a clear

Research in this area has attempted to identify the factors that are responsible for happiness (satisfaction with life).. ...

Hi Lorinda, I like you inclusion of the Van Gogh painting, but I think you should also mention him in the text just to make it a little more relevant. I like you inclusion of a table, but at the top you should have another row that says "Disorder Type(??)" above the disorders and "Definition/explanation/description" above the right column. I also dont think you have cited or presented your Krause quote correctly within the text. I also suggest that you use some coloured boxes to break up the text as it is a little hard on the eyes. Information on that here. Under your Self-Determination Theory section you also switch titling styles. Maybe stick with one, otherwise it looks messy. Otherwise, the chapter flows well and makes sense! Looking good so far! Good luck! Cora --Cora.boyle (discuss • contribs) 23:58, 20 October 2016 (UTC) Hi Lorinda, I agree with Cora, the chapter appears to flow well and the inclusion of the paintings works. Maybe introduce Gogh in the Overview. I note also that you ...

In the process of the development of the intervention contents, it is highly useful to form a team of experts in the different areas that the intervention is expected to aim. In this way, back and forth discussions as well as feedback about each area of expertise can be achieved, enriching the development of the intervention contents, such as it has been previously suggested by Helitzer and colleagues (Helitzer, Bobo Peterson, Thompson, & Fluder, 2008). Even though the process of forming the experts team can be time consuming, and we are aware that depending on the human and financial resources available, forming a multidisciplinary team might not be possible, we found that the constant feedback from each expert was fruitful for the development of the intervention contents.. Furthermore, using a health behavior theory as a basis to tailor the contents of the intervention helps not only to potentially enhance the effectiveness of the intervention, but also to more efficiently define the ...

Is it possible that an entire school can be imbued with positive psychology?. In January 2008, Karen and I and fifteen of our Penn trainers (mostly MAPP graduates) flew to Australia to teach one hundred members of the Geelong Grammar faculty. In a nine-day course, we first taught the teachers to use the skills in their own lives-personally and professionally-and then we gave examples and detailed curricula of how to teach them to children. The principles and skills were taught in plenary sessions, and reinforced through exercises and applications in groups of thirty, as well as in pairs and small groups.. Following the training, several of us were in residence for the entire year, and about a dozen visiting scholars came, each for a week or more, to instruct faculty in their positive psychology specialties. Heres what we devised, which essentially divides into "Teaching it," "Embedding it," and "Living it.". Teaching It: Stand-alone courses and course units are now taught in several grades to ...
The contribution of cognitive perspectives (cognitive-developmental theory and gender schema theory) to a contemporary understanding of gender development is evaluated.. Recent critiques of cognitive approaches are discussed and empirical evidence is presented to counter these critiques.. Because of the centrality of early gender development to the cognitive perspective, the latest research is reviewed on how infants and toddlers discriminate the sexes and learn the attributes correlated with sex.. The essence of cognitive approaches-emphasis on motivational consequences of gender concepts; the active, self-initiated view of development; and focus on developmental patterns-is highlighted and contrasted with social-cognitive views.. The value of cognitive theories to the field is illustrated, and recommendations are made concerning how to construct comprehensive, integrative perspectives of gender development.. ...

These passages show what Mr. Mills doctrine of equality is, and how it forms the very root, the essence, so to speak, of his theory about the subjection of women. I consider it unsound in every respect. I think that it rests upon an unsound view of history, an unsound view of morals, and a grotesquely distorted view of facts, and I believe that its practical application would be as injurious as its theory is false.. The theory may be shortly restated in the following propositions, which I think are implied in or may be collected from the extracts given above. They are as follows:. 1. Justice requires that all people should live in society as equals.. 2. History shows that human progress has been a progress from a "law of force" to a condition in which command and obedience become exceptional.. 3. The "law of the strongest" having in this and one or two other countries been "entirely abandoned" in all other relations of life, it may be presumed not to apply to the relation between the ...
Suppose we are concerned no longer with compact objects, but with objects which are spatially extended: lines on the plane or flats in 3-space. This leads to consideration of line processes, and of processes of flats or hyper-flats. There can no longer be a preferred spatial location for each object; however the theory may be mapped back into point process theory by representing each object by a point in a suitable representation space. For example, in the case of directed lines in the plane one may take the representation space to be a cylinder. A complication is that the Euclidean motion symmetries will then be expressed on the representation space in a somewhat unusual way. Moreover, calculations need to take account of interesting spatial biases (for example, line segments are less likely to be hit by random lines to which they are nearly parallel) and this provides an interesting and significant connection to the hugely significant area of stereology, which in some respects can be viewed as ...
The basic idea of Information processing theory is that the human mind is like a computer or information processor - rather than behaviorist notions that people merely responding to stimuli.. These theories equate thought mechanisms to that of a computer, in that it receives input, processes, and delivers output. Information gathered from the senses (input), is stored and processed by the brain, and finally brings about a behavioral response (output).. Information processing theory has been developed and broadened over the years. Most notable in the inception of information processing models is Atkinson and Shriffins stage theory, presenting a sequential method, as discussed above, of input-processing-output[2]. Though influential, the linearity of this theory reduced the complexity of the human brain, and thus various theories were developed in order to further assess the inherent processes.. Following this line of thought, Craik and Lockhart issued the level of processing model[3]. They ...

I have all the time to improve my education, to improve my skills to be an equal member (of society)." And we do believe that your behavior depends on your feelings.
