THE TRUTH ABOUT HOT***

heat-stroke

Hot: n. a temperature larger than normal human body temperature

There is less agreement on what warm and cold is to humans but if it is higher than normal human body temperature then it can be called a fever which is too hot. Usually you begin to sweat more if the temperature outside is above normal body temperature and even though humans can survive in temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit or about 40 degrees Celsius you can call these temperatures hot without having to debate further.

There is also very hot, boiling hot, and there is infinitely hot or all the energy in the universe concentrated on an infinitely small point in space but they all qualify as being hot.

THE TRUTH ABOUT NAIVETE***

2745886866_1

Naivete: n. a relatively small quantity of real experience and/or knowledge with innocent simplicity and/or honesty which makes one seem foolish

Offspring can be considered to be naïve because they lack worldly experience and are frequently very honest and don’t hide their feelings and opinions the way that many adults do.

A naïve adult is really one who has been largely isolated from society and still reacts with honest spontaneity which seems foolish to a hardened adult who has been taught to be deceptive under many social circumstances to avoid social embarrassment.

A naïve adult will frequently criticize a bad gift, tell you honestly that your perfume stinks, say your excess jewelry is gaudy, say they don’t like your pretentious spouse, say that your offspring are brats if they misbehave, and say that you are fat if you are overweight. Naïve adults frequently don’t understand that we all have our egos and don’t want them to be hurt. Many naïve adults are more trusting then they should be in a world filled with social  and economic predators.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CONFRONTATION***

images (2)

Confrontation: n. interacting (violently and/or an argumentatively) with frequently a very intense conviction(s)

The most common form of confrontation is a very intense argument where each side tries to win with their dominant belief, opinion and/or desire. Compromise is seldom considered as an option and it can even erupt into physical violence.

Bar brawls are an example of confrontational arguments leading to physical violence and some protests which start out as relatively peaceful confrontations can degenerate into violence against the police or against opposing demonstrators.

Some confrontations between hostile nations can also lead to violence and if it weren’t for mutually assured nuclear destruction, violent wars or military conflict would be more frequent than it is today.

As long as there are unyielding religious dogmas and unyielding tyrannical governments there will be arguments about ideology and political correctness. Confrontations leading to violence in some form are the inevitable result in this world on into the foreseeable future. Where compromise is impossible confrontation is inevitable.

The classic confrontation is the threat of violence if you don’t give up your wallet in a stickup.

Extortion is also a confrontation which can convince you to behave illegally or give up a possession.

Most confrontations these days are very intense emotional arguments which sometimes escalate into violent action or assault. Abused women and men are frequently examples of violent confrontations.

 

A difficult situation is one where the husband beats a financially dependent wife with offspring and she fears getting a divorce because of threats to kill her if she does. Divorcing and going on welfare with a cease and desist order is frequently the only escape when the violence becomes truly intolerable or unbearable.

 

Other severe confrontations are when there is an addict on alcohol, drugs, or gambling and they insist that they don’t have a problem but can function in this world without problems. Unless the addict loses their job, gets involved in a serious accident, or can’t pay the bills there is probably no hope of convincing them that they have a problem which needs action or a solution such as getting off the addiction.

 

Confrontations where both sides have opposing die hard opinions or beliefs are almost impossible to change and you can get therapists or friends to help you trying to convince someone that they are wrong or behaving badly. If social pressure and a logical approach doesn’t help then unfortunately you may be forced to ignore or avoid the strong opinion or belief and perhaps even avoid the human if they are not your spouse.

 

CONCLUSION:

If you sense a very intense emotional attachment to an opinion or belief then verbal confrontations are best avoided especially where the subjects may be politics, religion, or sports and they are things which you really can’t change and need not affect your personal relationships if you don’t want them to.

 

If you can’t turn a confrontation into a calm discussion then empathize with the viewpoint, say that you understand where they are coming from, and express the thought that you have a right to disagree, live and let live.

THE TRUTH ABOUT MEDIATION***

65-4-a

Mediation: n. negotiating and solving differences of fact(s) and/or opinion(s) frequently with the help of a lawyer’s advice and/or ending a dispute with a mutual agreement with the help of a third party

A mediator is frequently a human with expertise in resolving disputes such as a lawyer who can help disputing parties to reach a settlement or mutual agreement when the parties can’t reach agreement on their own.

In offspring disputes a parent is frequently the mediator and in employee disputes the boss can sometimes be the mediator who helps resolve a dispute. In a disagreement between a doctor and patient another doctor may become the mediator or just be a second opinion which helps to resolve a medical issue.

There can be more than one mediator such as both parents mediating the dispute between offspring but it is a relatively rare exception and not the general rule and one mediator is usually used.

THE TRUTH ABOUT OPPRESSION***

oppression_1

Oppression: n. controlling cruelly and/or unjustly for duration

Most of us suffer under government oppression with unjust laws to obey but we can also be oppressed at work. Our boss may not give us credit for our efforts or may be a tyrannical authoritarian berating us and ridiculing our efforts.

Oppression is a fact of life in this world and with an ever growing government the oppression will just get worse with the passage of time. Compared to other exploitative governments ours is still not the worst but it is getting there by leaps and bounds.

The liberty to morally speak your mind and publish it is the most important right but ultimately your right to bear arms if you are a law abiding citizen is the most important long duration guarantee against total tyrannical government oppression.

Fortunately none of us are slaves suffering under the oppression of slave owners but there is other social oppression such as handicaps, gender, ethnic, and ageism discrimination.

Colonialism used to be national oppression and tyrannies are still political forms of oppression.

Some of us feel oppressed by corrupt laws and too much taxation and still others feel oppressed by a bad job with little prospects for advancement. Some are in abusive or oppressive marriages and are desperate to get out but may not be able to for financial reasons.

If you are trapped in cruel relationships or suffering injustices then you can consider yourself to be oppressed in some way.

THE TRUTH ABOUT MANIPULATION***

methods-of-manipulation

Manipulation: n. deceptively changing a human(s)’ mind(s) and/or behavior(s) frequently for personal benefit

Politicians, advertisers, brokers, and spouses sometimes cleverly manipulate the emotions of a human(s) for personal benefit. Making promises that they don’t intend to keep or feeding misleading information can cause someone to change their mind and/or behavior to their detriment later on.

A politician may get you to vote for them but not keep his promises, an advertiser may get you to buy a product which you regret having purchased later on, a broker may convince you to buy or sell a stock just to get a commission, or a spouse may convince you that they were not unfaithful when actually they were.

Manipulation is frequently deceptively feeding you half truths which sound plausible but will actually hurt you in some way if you go through with their suggestions. Most successful manipulations manipulate your fears and basic desires to get you to do something which you frequently regret later on.

You can also be rarely deceptively manipulated into doing something which benefits you or is good for you but that is the exception to the rule and is a rarity. Parents sometimes try to manipulate offspring with promises that eating something healthy will make them strong or beautiful and it sometimes works on young impressionable believing offspring.

If something sounds too good to be true then chances are great that you are being manipulated and will regret it if you follow through with it. The media and society is filled with manipulators and the probability that most of your opinions and beliefs are actually products of manipulation are great.

Read my evergreen truth blogs and you will gradually lose most of the social deceptions which you believe in.

THE TRUTH ABOUT MANAGING***

formation-management-equipe

Manage: v. to control the action(s) of a human(s)  (with a command(s) and/or by showing what is to be done) and/or (by interacting and trying to solve a problem(s) and/or by trying to use emotional intelligence) and achieve a desired goal(s)

You can manage someone by commanding them and/or by showing them what is to be done. “Do your job” may be an authoritarian style of management where there is relatively minimal interaction between the manager and the managed.

The more interaction there is between the manager and managed the more it becomes a teamwork effort where both interchange ideas on how to do the job. In teamwork the manager frequently interacts with the managed and tries to solve a problem(s) together for optimal effect.

Management styles vary depending on how well defined the job is. If the job has clear rules and operates with little management then an authoritarian form of leadership can work relatively well.

If on the other hand the job is dynamic with many variations and no clear rules of operation then more interaction between the leader and led may be necessary to reach desired goals. Teamwork is frequently more effective in situations where the goals change from job to job or where different skills may be necessary with different personnel changes to achieve a goal(s).

Effective management means much emotional intelligence or the ability to make the managed feel good about their job and feel that they are a vital contributing factor in a job or project. Maintaining a sense of selfworth in the managed is important. Harsh or mean criticism, put downs, name calling, unnecessary threats, and ridicule should not be used in management managed interactions which can all create a dysfunctional,  inefficient working atmosphere.

Management is a leadership skill which can vary and be different depending on the nature of the job but emotional intelligence is necessary in leading any job and the humans in it.
