Compared to most animals, the large amount of human behavior is harmful to itself – such as lying, stealing, and tattoos. Science explains why humans such sane animals are so vicious, self-harming and harmful to others.
Researchers say that from an evolutionary perspective, humans are designed to judge and talk about others.
In many cases, the purpose of rumors is not to seek truth, but to forge a united situation at the expense of the interests of third parties. “When two people express their dislike at the same time, rumors make them closer to each other,” the psychologist said.
Gambling seems to exist in our genes and exists as a hard link in the brain.
A study shows that almost all wins activate the relevant circuits in the brain and further enhance the motivation of gambling. “Gamers usually interpret the victory as a special event, which encourages them to continue to gamble,” the psychologist said.
Other studies have also shown that failure can make gamblers lose self-control. When they start planning the cost of gambling, they are sensible. Once they fail, reason does not exist. They will change their gambling plans and bet more.
Stress can be fatal, and it increases the risk of heart disease and even cancer. Stress can lead to depression, and frustration can lead to suicide – another hazard that is unique to humans. But why is it nervous, but we are very difficult to determine.
For many people, work is a source of significant stress, and it also exists in children. According to the International Labor Organization, more than 600 million people worldwide work 48 hours a week. There are also studies that believe that older people feel less stress, and exercise and adequate sleep are the best ways to overcome stress.
Knife for beauty
According to industry forecasts, by 2015, 17% of US residents will undergo different degrees of cosmetic surgery. As we all know, cosmetic surgery can also kill, but why are so many people so keen?
Perhaps the strongest motivation for plastic surgery is to be beautiful and more attractive. “There is a theory: If you look good, then you will be happier, you will feel better in your own state,” said psychologist Diana.
Half or more of school-age children have experienced bullying. A 2009 study in Europe showed that children who bully others at school are equally likely to bully their siblings at home.
However, bullying is not just a trick for children. Almost 30% of US office personnel have experienced bullying from their bosses or colleagues in ways that suppress job-related information, as well as insulting rumors and other insults, and once started, bullying becomes more serious. “Bullying, understanding by definition is an escalation of contradiction. It is difficult to suppress because it usually starts in a trivial way,” the psychologist said.
Why do we have bullying? Psychologists say that this is to gain status and rights, and some people will have a hard time resisting such behavior.
No one knows for sure why humans lie so often. However, the study found that this phenomenon is commonplace and that this behavior is often associated with deep psychological factors.
”It’s about self-esteem,” psychologists said. “When people feel threatened by self-esteem, they begin to make lies.” Recent research has found that people use email to lie in the workplace more often than they usually write. .
Stealing can be triggered by the motivation needed, but for those who have theft, theft can be triggered by a purely exhilarating experience in the theft process. A study involving 43,000 people found that 11% of them admitted to stealing at least once in the store.
It is reported that theft can release a substance in the human body, which will cause a pleasant feeling in the brain.
Stick to bad habits
Human beings are habitual animals. In fact, even if it is known that bad habits can cause harm, it is difficult for people to quit.
Psychologists say people tend to rationalize bad habits by paying attention to special circumstances, such as “It hasn’t hurt me yet,” or “My grandmother smoked for a long time and lived to 90.”
