Power Up Your Mind: Learn Faster, Work Smarter

Lucas offers a revolutionary understanding of how mankinds brains are pre-wired to learn and the practical steps to take in order to participate fully in the process. Bill Lucas, a leading international expert on life-long learning, shows that while we have learned more about how the brain works in the last decade than we have ever known, only a fraction of this is grasped and applied by most people. Power Up Your Mind applies this practical knowledge for the first time and shows you how to learn. Drawing on research from a wide variety of subject areas, from neuroscience to psychology, from motivation theory to accelerated learning, from memory to diet, this book shows how everyone has the capacity to succeed and how most people use only a very small portion of their talents. For learning to be effective, an understanding of how the brain works is essential and unlike most of the recent thinking on the mind, Lucas connects an understanding of the brain with the reality of the workplace and translates what we know about the brain into useful insights for work. Much work-based training is a waste of time and money because the majority of people are neither emotionally ready nor practically inclined to apply their learning to the way they behave. Power Up Your Mind offers a new model of learning-READY, GO, STEADY-which will revolutionize the way you learn and perform

The Gifts of Imperfection: Embrace Who You Are

When our embarrassments and fears lie, we often listen to them anyway. They thwart our gratitude, acceptance, and compassion—our goodness. They insist, “I am not worthy.” But we are worthy—of self-discovery, personal growth, and boundless love. With Brené Brown’s game-changing New York Times bestseller The Gifts of Imperfection—which has sold more than 2 million copies in more than 30 different languages, and Forbes recently named one of the "Five Books That Will Actually Change Your Outlook On Life"—we find courage to overcome paralyzing fear and self-consciousness, strengthening our connection to the world. A motivational and inspiring guide to wholehearted living, rather than just the average self-help book, with this groundbreaking work Brené Brown, Ph.D., bolsters the self-esteem and personal development process through her characteristic heartfelt, honest storytelling. With original research and plenty of encouragement, she explores the psychology of releasing our definitions of an “imperfect” life and embracing living authentically. Brown’s “ten guideposts” are benchmarks for authenticity that can help anyone establish a practice for a life of honest beauty—a perfectly imperfect life. Now more than ever, we all need to cultivate feelings of self-worth, as well as acceptance and love for ourselves. In a world where insults, criticisms, and fears are spread too generously alongside messages of unrealistic beauty, attainment, and expectation, we look for ways to “dig deep” and find truth and gratitude in our lives. A new way forward means we can’t hold on too tightly to our own self-defeating thoughts or the displaced pain in our world. Instead, we can embrace the imperfection.

<Arta subtila a nepasarii>

O metodă nonconformistă pentru o viață mai bună peste un milion de exemplare vîndute. În acest ghid revoluționar, definitoriu pentru o întreagă generație, autorul ne învață că, pentru a fi fericiți, trebuie sa renunțăm la a fi 'pozitivi' mereu și trebuie, în schimb, să ne perfecționam în învingerea obstacolelor. Manson argumentează că pentru a avea o viață mai bună trebuie să știm nu cum să transformăm lămîile în limonada, ci cum să le toleram mai bine. El ne sfătuiește să ne cunoaștem limitele și să le acceptam. Aceasta este adevărata sursa a puterii. După ce ne-am acceptat temerile, greșelile și incertitudinile, după ce încetam să evitam adevărurile dureroase și începem să le iîfruntăm, putem găsi curajul și încrederea pe care le căutam cu disperare. Adoptînd pentru acest manifest un ton sincer și un limbaj direct, fără compromisuri, Manson încearcă să ne trezească la realitate pentru a putea duce o viață mai plină de satisfacții și mai ancorată în concret."Unii spun că sunt un idiot. Alții zic ca le-am salvat viața.

Mindset: The New Psychology of Success

After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment.

The Philosophy of Psychology

Some of the issues studied by the philosophy of psychology are epistemological concerns about the methodology of psychological investigation. For example: What is the most appropriate methodology for psychology: mentalism, behaviorism, or a compromise? Are self-reports a reliable data-gathering[1] method? What conclusions can be drawn from null hypothesis tests? Can first-person experiences (emotions, desires, beliefs, etc.) be measured objectively?

Psychological Similarities and Differences between Women and Men across Cultures

Most research looking at psychological similarities and differences betweenwomen and men has been carried out in North America and Western Europe.In this paper, I review a body of cross-cultural evidence showing that it isprecisely in these Western countries that women and men differ the most interms of personality, self-construal, values, or emotions. Much less-pronouncedgender differences are observed, if at all, in Asian and African countries. Thesefindings are unexpected from the perspectives of the two most influentialframeworks applied to sex differences coming from evolutionary psychology andsocial role theory. However, recent research related to social comparison andself-categorization theories suggests a promising approach to explain why moreegalitarian societies can paradoxically create greater psychological differencesbetween women and men.

There is nothing more absurd, as I view it, than that conventional association of the homely and the wholesome which seems to pervade the psychology of the multitude. Mention a bucolic Yankee setting, a bungling and thick-fibered village undertaker, and a careless mishap in a tomb, and no average reader can be brought to expect more than a hearty albeit grotesque phase of comedy. God knows, though, that the prosy tale which George Birch's death permits me to tell has in it aspects beside which some of our darkest tragedies are light. Birch acquired a limitation and changed his business in 1881, yet never discussed the case when he could avoid it.

Psychology of Parent-Child Relationship

Findings that have been gained from psychological studies on parentchild relationship desired for the healthy development of the mind in infants, with particular emphasis on how to raise infants are discussed herein. First, a conceptual scheme to examine mother-infant relationship, the most important aspect of early parent-child relationship, is presented. For instance, structural components of mother-infant interactions are shown diagrammatically. Based on the figures, development of infants during the first two years since birth is discussed in relation to the mother-infant interactions by dividing it into three phases. Specifically, primary characteristics of developmental changes in the ability of infants to communicate during the first two months of life, two to six months, and six to 18 months are exemplified, and the characteristics of the mother-infant interactions strongly related to such changes are organized. Subsequently, how the behavioral changes in parent-child relationship might be related to the tasks concerning mind development in infants is clarified. Finally, the current situation of the parenting environment in Japan, including the issue of participation by fathers, and clinical tasks are presented.
