  • Interview questions were useful content, but written on a short manner that was not conversational. I still couldn’t figure out the difference of cultural appropriation vd appreciation, based upon the answer.
    However , itsan awesome topic and important discussion overall! Great to know there’s a resource out there which interprets culture with…[Read more]

  • Article worth reading and rereading! Investigating the links to the theories and applications is definitely with exploring! I agree with another commenter’s view of authors writing, very friendly and professional style!
    The article focusing on Creativity, opens the reader to creative crosshath of sorts, expanding creative application into many areas!

  • Article presents a personal opinion of the effects of social media. Article is heavily biased with pros and only one con, but used no external references to support opinion.

  • Wow. Author asks questions in a format that makes sense and is easy to comprehend. The answers, at least to me, were entire and instructive. This is a great read and beneficial to any reader.

  • Well written and fun article! I had no idea there are proven personality traits based upon studies!

  • Enjoyable personal disclosure about a condition that’s hard to understand when one doesn’t experience it. I have OCD and GAD but this article makes it easier to understand the extreme levels. I have had situational panic attacks, but only in one situation and I don’t believe it was to the degree you are describing. Kudos for the article…[Read more]

  • Covered psychopathic modus operandi that aren’t generally known! I am a true crime conisseur & have read profiler books, familiar with DSM manual etc, and the inclusiveness was a big surprise to me! I was once married to a sociopath who confused me so much , I had to record everything I said! I really liked the emphasis about how they are…[Read more]

  • Thank you for your feedback! I probably should not have so many exclamations but this is how I talk, also!! I will try to restrain myself in future! I didn’t know what to do about the title. There was someone who published an article with the assigned title i was given, so I had to change mine. Thank you for commenting!!

  • Thank you for your question! Honestly, before we had phones I always brought a book to read. Haha. Eye contact is a great indicator bit can’t be counted on any more on our age of distraction. Thank you for your feedback as this is my first article!!

  • Thank you for your point of view! What do you edit I would love to read some of that work!
    This is my 1st article for this site, the directions stayed to make the introductory paragraph personal. Also for writing for millenials, several articles states that millenials want to hear a personal perspective! I use exclamation points because that is…[Read more]

  • Introvert? Habitually avoid social situations? If there was a room with a sign saying, “ENTER HERE, all who dare, for social interaction,” I would sneak right by that room! Unfortunately, it’s impossible to avoid […]

    • This is a very informative article! I feel like this is especially great for people with social anxiety, and others that need some tips and reassurance with reading people. When you’re able to understand people better, it can help make you more comfortable in the situation.
      I really like that this article included examples of each technique. And the intro paragraph made it very relatable! I think that the titled could be reworded though because I was a little confused about what the article was going to be about. The intro paragraph also has a lot of exclamation points, I totally get it because I use them a lot, too. I think it would flow a little better though if there were less. Over all, a great article and very informative! Everyone could benefit from reading this.

      • I also love the picture 😀

    • Thank you for sharing aspects of you personal life that you’ve dealt with. Figuring out how to use backgrounds of individuals can be crucial. Eye-contact is one of my favorite things to acknowledge about an individual, to judge how invested they are in the conversation. Usually, when I start making new connections, I can see whether or not a person is interested in the topic I brought up. I enjoy that you pointed out the cultural aspect involved with eye contact.
      Your article was personal, and empathetic towards the anxiety associated with creating friendships and relationships. It was a wonderful read and I can empathize with the eating at record times. I’m wondering if you’d be able to venture further into the safety that a phone provides when faced with these anxiety moments? Do you find that having an escape by using your phone makes you feel more comfortable?

      From what you wrote, it appears to me that we agree on forming bias based on appearance. I discussed how clothes may be an indicator of an action. Not a judgement or stereotype of who the person is.

      I intended to write an informal,piece, to equip others with a hands on practical application. Its not a technical piece. Thanks for reading and your perspective , I’m always interested!!

    • Thanks for the information! I think it’s very relatable, because you put your own experience in it.
      Talking about stereotypes, i used to be agreed that stereotypes are useful when we just about to get to know someone. i thought stereotypes are such ‘a general manual’ of people. Then i started to stop involving stereotypes in getting to know someone since a year ago, surprisingly it makes me think that stereotypes might become boundaries in someone’s social life (by limiting the possibility of types of people). But in reality, people tend to ‘grouping’ things, including ‘grouping’ other people, so here comes the stereotypes. Anyway, thanks for sharing your experience!

  • Instant gratification as discussed in interview was exceptionally interesting. The answer discloses a huge emphasis on cultural influences and norms, which is easy to forget. The counsel to college students for managing stress including evasive practice to avoid it, was particularly useful to start off on the right foot.
    I thought the interview…[Read more]

  • I really enjoyed discovering there is a factual study to back up we should trust out gut instinct!
    Author explains several points with a full amount of elaboration for each point. Easy to read and understand and valuable information!

  • Lovely descriptive piece oabout what depression feels like.,this is a personal experience piece, almost lyrically so. I experienced depression for years, I called it “The Abyss” before I attended counseling and found put the name real name. Layer my anxiety became expressed as depression. The theory is that anxiety and depression are the same…[Read more]

  • The author conducted a wonderful interview with a wide range of questions. In strong concise writing, the interview covers a wide range for the subject of criticism, from how to deal with it -how to not be critical – low self esteem as a result of criticism. The subject and application in the answers have practical application for positive results.

  • Article attempts to fairly discuss pros and cons of antipsychotics, but falls short. First, the term antipsychotic drug is not defined. Secondly, I’m unsure of what “on top of following design” means, and point two is unclear. Finally, the point is left put that not one drug fits all, nor is the first try of a drug successful. It is common that…[Read more]

  • The one great thing this article does is talk about a subject that mainstream American society doesn’t like to talk about. Latinos, and Native Americans I have witnesses, have specific traditions and celebrations for death and grieving.
    Many of the commentators before me, made great points, especially in the use of resources and considering other…[Read more]

  • The article offers an unusual twist to “am I attractive or unattractive, that is the question”. The interviewer starts off with a burst of enthusiasm, which pops curiosity about a lesser known subject. With a broad base of questions, the article lends interest into what may otherwise come across as a dry subject.

  • Hi. It is my understanding that any source we read as a writer, even if we do not use direct ideas, need to be cited or its considered plagiarism. Online writing is notorious for not giving credit.
    Most good writing is “deduced”, but that doesn’t mean we don’t give credit to the original material we deduced from.
    Fyi, for a help. Not a…[Read more]

  • This article is great because it facts to support why introverts are they way they are. Discusses both neural and valid studies to give insight into introverts. On a personal level, I enjoyed learning about myself, as I learn, I can accept and feel positive about who I am! An interesting note, I was raised in central California, a flat wide…[Read more]
