The Grandeur of Delusion
Fooling yourself is a survival strategy
Published on March 8, 2013 by Jeff Wise in Extreme Fear
"Psychologists define “delusion” as a manifestly absurd belief held in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, specifically as a symptom of a disorder like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. But we’re all delusional to some degree. In fact, a certain amount of delusion may be essential for our mental health."

Freud's Cognitive RevolutionFreud's philosophical revolution
Published on February 15, 2012 by David Livingstone Smith, Ph.D. in Philosophy Dispatches
The received wisdom amongst scientifically-minded psychologists is that Freud is passé - a sad case of theoretical speculation gone wild. There is something right about this bleak assessment, but there is also more than a little wrong with it. Compare it with the view of Freud offered by Clark Glymour, a noted philosopher of science, in a paper entitled "Freud's androids." "Freud's writings contain a philosophy of mind," writes Glymour, "and indeed a philosophy of mind that addresses many of the issues about the mental that nowadays concern philosophers and ought to concern psychologists."
"Freud's thinking about the issues in philosophy of mind is often better than much of what goes on in contemporary philosophy, and it is sometimes ad good as the best. Some of this is dated, of course, by the limits of Freud's scientific knowledge, but even when Freud had
Marijuana and Sex: SurveyMarijuana and Sex: Surprising Results of This Blogger’s Informal Survey
A surprising proportion of respondents said, "It depends."
Published on May 1, 2011 by Michael Castleman, M.A. in All About Sex
67%f respondents said marijuana enhances sex.
• "I'm not a frequent smoker, but when I have smoked and then had sex, it's been the most amazing sex of my life."
• "Marijuana engulfs me in sex foam. I'm just pure sex on that stuff. It's great. I could never feel that way sober or drunk."
• "Definitely enhances sex. A few tokes make me feel horny the vast majority of the time, and it makes the whole experience much more enjoyable."
• "After smoking, I can feel my nipples perk up, clitoris tingle, and vagina become wet to the point that I can feel it through my pants and my man knows he is in for a LONG night."
• "Cannabis is soooo good for sex that sometimes it can become awkward because during casual hook-ups, the woman might get the wrong
Everybody Is Stupid Except YouEverybody Is Stupid Except You
The truth about learning and memory.
by Nate Kornell Ph.D.
Cognitive biases lead guys to overestimate women's interest in them.
Published on March 22, 2012 by Nate Kornell, Ph.D. in Everybody Is Stupid Except You
Why do guys mistake women's friendliness for sexual interest?
Why does this bias exist? One might say that the media sexualizes men and makes them see sex wherever they look. This can't be the whole answer, though, because guys don't overestimate ALL women's interest (e.g., they don't overestimate their sisters' interest in other men)—if I'm a man, I overestimate women's interest in me. But what of the argument that the media depicts women as less interested in sex and having a lower sex drive than men? If that's the case, we should see men assuming that women are just generally not that interested; and should see women perhaps holding the opposite bias: assuming that men are more interested. So these proxima
Sexual Stereotyping Affecting Your Relationship ?Is Sexual Stereotyping Affecting Your Relationship?
Sexual stereotypes and their distortions of the sexes are divisive.
Published on February 9, 2012 by Lisa Firestone, Ph.D. in Compassion Matters
Sexual stereotypes are everywhere. We see them in commercials, where happy moms dance around their homes in celebration of a functional mop. We see them in movies, where stoic male heroes are still rescuing clueless heroines. We see them on sitcoms, where single women dream of getting their boyfriends to settle down, and lazy husbands just want to watch sports.
It's true that in recent years we've made advances to establish equality between the sexes. Society is reflecting fewer attitudes that support discrimination and inequality between men and women, and most of us espouse a point of view that is liberated from old sexual prejudices that once bordered on racial bigotry. However, even though we are liberated in our beliefs and attitudes, many of our actions are still in
The Context Dependence of Hot Guys (and Girls)Science Of Small Talk
The science of social behavior, one interaction at a time
To be hot or not to be hot–that is the question.
Published on January 29, 2012 by Sam Sommers in Science Of Small Talk
What makes someone attractive to you?
"Specific physical features? A particular personality type? A certain indefinable quality of character or depth of soul? All reasonable answers, sure, but there's an additional response you probably didn't give–one that behavioral science suggests you should at least consider. Another critical influence on who you're attracted to is context.
Show women a photo of a man, research has demonstrated, and they'll rate him as more attractive when he's pictured posing with other women than when he's alone (or when he's with other men). And in other studies–not to mention Seinfeld episodes–the very same man gets rated as more attractive when he's described as married versus single."

Practice Safe Sharing
Protecting and nurturing our emotional sensitivity
Published on December 24, 2011 by Lisa Rivero in Creative Synthesis
Being more open and honest about our thoughts and feelings is always the best course. Or is it?
Advantage: "You are passionate, and passionate people put their all into projects. Empathetic people are passionate about their beliefs and ideas. In creative roles, or as sales or marketing people, passion is a plus."
Disadvantage:"You may be a victim of emotional vampires. Emotional vampires are people who suck the energy right out of you and leave you feeling drained and depleted. They may do this by being needy, talkative, cruel, or by running right over you. There are lots of different types of emotional vampires-and they're naturally drawn to empaths like you."

I'm opening a tiny request journal in order to celebrate New Year!
I'll be most likely drawing a headshot linearts like this one! But it also can be a different type of drawing, such as an ink or pencil sketch, or an animated illustration as it will be a surprise.
I will be taking a look at this journal from time to time !
I won't be drawing all requests, just few of these, but I'll tell you if I'll accept your request and feature your comment then.
Don't ask me if I accepted your request, just check if your comment is featured. If it is, then you'll receive a drawing from me at some point.

NO APOLOGIES BECAUSE I LOVE EVERY SINGLE PIECE AND I GOTTA SHOW EM TO YOU LIKE A FERRET WITH HER BABIES
(In all seriousness, I have a ton of fanart piled up in my inbox notifications, and the sheer volume gives me so much anxiety it's kinda overwhelming to attempt to comment on every piece (there's hundreds!) Please, PLEASE just know from the bottom of my heart, if you've ever drawn or written something for me (or even just shown support), I'm grateful beyond words. Thank you~)

Contest - Super Upgrade (open)Hi everyone!
I promised to make a contest in June - here we go!
Imagine... A young mage (or a witch, or a wizard, or... well... anyone) gets their first magic staff. As you can see, it's pretty plain and boring, but time passes and the staff (as well as its owner) changes... Perhaps its owner turned to dark magic and the staff now looks rather intimidating. Perhaps they are a druid and the staff is covered in flowers and leaves. Or perhaps now it contains one of elements. Or it's a weapon of Heavens. Or a deadly tool of a necromancer. It's up to you to decide!
So the task of this contest is to upgrade this staff.
paint the staff any colour you want
add details, ornaments, sparkles, etc. (as many as you want!)
submit only 1 entry (you can draw several variants but then you'll have to choose which one you'll submit as your entry)
(optionally) write a few
Happy new yearWe wish you all a happy new year
Thank you for participating with your great work
hoping that 2012's will be full of good things.
