JUMPING TO THE WRONG CONCLUSION OR IMPULSIVELY BELIEVING AN UNTRUTH TO BE THE TRUTH!!!

Most of us at some time have felt guilty, hopeless, anxious, depressed, jealous, vulnerable, rejected, hateful, inferior, stupid, angry, grumpy, fearful, etc.

If you are emotionally immature or have little emotional intelligence then you may often jump to the wrong conclusion about your feelings and that of others.

You may jump to a wrong conclusion based on insufficient evidence and react inappropriately emotionally.

Psychologists use fancy terms such as emotional reasoning, mind reading, and personalization to try and categorize different responses which are inaccurate readings of emotions or circumstances but they are all basically an impulsive, faulty, incomplete, wrong, or untrue reading of or reaction to reality.

If you sometimes feel a little guilty, moderately guilty, and very guilty then you probably have relatively good gut or impulsive guilt reactions but if you feel very guilty almost every time and frequently then your sense of emotional and physical reality may be bad.

Similarly if you have different degrees of anxiety or any emotion for that matter then you are probably emotionally healthy but if you feel very anxious or very emotional almost every time and do so frequently then your sense of physical and emotional reality for anxiety and other emotions is probably bad.

Another sign of emotional immaturity is if you see another human get mad, angry, hateful, grumpy, etc. and impulsively almost always feel that it is probably due to something that you did or said and it is your fault. Simply asking what made you mad, angry, hateful, depressed, grumpy, etc. will often get to the real cause of the emotional expression. Often you may not be involved at all and definitely you are not responsible for another’s emotional state or reaction.

If you feel insecure then you may have real justifications for it such as working at a job after working at 6 different jobs in a two year period. A feeling of insecurity in a relationship may be justified by a spouse who was promiscuous before marriage or had 3 prior divorces. A male may feel insecure if he marries a beautiful woman whom men are constantly hitting on or flirting with. Another major cause of justified insecurity arises from bad financial management which results in great financial stress and a feeling that you are always on the verge of bankruptcy.

Some are burdened with feelings of inadequacy and insecurity and may feel that they are stupid, boring, or are lacking in some personality department.

There are unfortunately few fast fixes and becoming better employed, more competent, more educated, more interesting, more sociable, etc. takes time and courageous determination to change your lousy circumstances and flawed personality.

Just making optimistic affirmations and thinking about your bad circumstances will not solve your emotional problems. What it will really take is some courageous determined action with selfresearch, selfeducation, expert advice, and actually changing your bad habits into better ones and developing better selfcontrol over your emotions.

Good parents and role models, other siblings, and much exposure to many different kinds of personalities or humans is the ideal way to mature emotionally. Leading a life largely isolated from other humans will handicap you emotionally but there are still many basically introverted humans who lead successful happy lives and aren’t overly concerned what others may think of them and don’t feel emotionally trapped or insecure. Introverts tend to be more selective in the humans that they associate with and are usually not concerned with being socially popular.

If you assume too much and have a tendency to jump to conclusions without actual complete evidence or often react impulsively emotionally by assuming what actually is not true or reality, then you have a serious problem where simple advice will not be enough such as just saying to yourself- don’t be so impulsive or think before you react emotionally.

Emotional immaturity takes long to overcome and the longer that you have been immature the harder it will be to eventually mature emotionally.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SUBCONSCIOUSNESS+

conscious-subconscious

Subconsiousness: n. unconscious impulsive brain activity while awake which influences our behavior to a large degree, especially good and/or bad habits

 

Despite popular myth that the conscious mind determines most of what we do in life the truth is that the subconscious rules supreme and makes impulsive choices based on prior experiences in our daily lives which are really our good and bad habits repeating themselves over and over again.

Very little conscious decision making is part of the lives of most humans and most of us behave on the subconscious level unless there is a crisis or severe emotional experience which changes our subconscious behavior for good or bad.

To use a bad analogy, our conscious behavior is the iceberg which we theoretically see or can control and the huge subconscious is the iceberg below the water level which we theoretically can’t see or can’t control which is the major part of our behavior and decision making process.

THE TRUTH ABOUT COMPUTERS+

Robots.1

Computers are primarily made up of two parts-memory and a processor. The memory stores information and the processor manipulates the information mathematically or logically.

Initial programming languages used simple logical or mathematical instructions which compared numbers and based on whether one was larger or smaller branched or went to another place in the code or program. Having branched or gone to another point in the program another logical question was asked comparing numbers and based on the result would branch to another location in the program.

One of the hardest problems was getting out of infinite loops which was a logical flaw in the program and was a situation where you repeated the same programming code over and over again without reaching an end or conclusion.

Fundamentally a computer just adds or subtracts numbers and makes logical comparisons of greater than or less than and then branches to another location in the program to do further calculations.

Letters can also be represented mathematically and so you can form words with the computer and make lists of information. These lists of information stored in memory can be accessed and processed almost any way that you want so we have computers translating from one language to another and even writing articles retrieved from much relevant information written about a topic or subject. Miraculously the computer seems to have an ability to think or do things similar to what a human brain can do.

With enough information in memory a computer can play the Jeopardy game or chess game and win. Pretty soon computers will also be able to drive a car on city and highway roads by being told what the destination is as the only necessary information to be inputted by hand or voice. Computer robots will soon be performing many of the tasks only done by humans. There is even a fear that computers will soon be able to think like humans and threaten to take over the world and not just do all the work or jobs which were once done by humans.

I don’t have this fear that computers will take over the world but I think that the most likely scenario is where humans and computers will work together symbiotically and help each other to solve problems in everyday life and do things which have to be done.

A computer is very good at logical thinking but is not as efficient as the human brain and is lousy at detecting or using human emotions. A computer can’t presently have a sense of humor or detect whether someone is being deceptive or is lying about something. It can’t sense whether you love something or just like it and it does not react to the environment or other humans in an emotional way.

Most humans react rather impulsively to the environment based on their prior experiences in life and unfortunately the computer does not act impulsively based on prior experiences. We are much better at adapting to changes in the environment which is so complex and it is very easy to fool a computer with faulty information input. We are much cleverer than a computer ever will be and there are still human capabilities which the computer will probably not have in the near foreseeable future. Humans primarily function emotionally and a computer will probably never become as emotional as humans are.

Yes, computers will ultimately do almost everything that we can do and better but they will not get the emotional thrill out of life which we are capable of. Computers may someday be able to fake love, happiness, laughter, grief, empathy, deception, lying, and sorrow but they will not truly feel those emotions the way that humans do.

THE TRUTH ABOUT REACTION***

reaction_logo_b

Reaction: n. causing an action(s) by a subset(s) after impacting by samer subset(s)

All of us react to our environment and the humans around us in rather impulsive intuitive ways most of the time and it is only occasionally that we take a few seconds out of our time to think about what we will do next.

 

Reactions are a fact of life in human behavior and we react almost instantly to most of the things which happen around us. Delayed reactions are underrated and it is one way that we can analyze whether our daily reactions really benefit us or trap us into behaving with many bad behaviors which we should try and eliminate from our lives.

 

How many times have we really stopped and asked ourselves. Is what I am about to do really necessary or am I just doing it out of unconscious habit?

 

Before you buy anything have you really asked yourself- do I really need it or just want it and can I wait a few days or weeks before I purchase what I impulsively think I want? If you can wait a week or months before buying then don’t buy!

 

If we more frequently stopped to ask a question about what we will do next then we can become more aware of our impulsive behaviors and be in a position to maybe modify the behavior into a better one.

 

Stop and think before you act is good advice if you want to improve on your behavior in a conscious logical way. Know thyself. If you analyze what you do and why you do it then you will be more aware and in a position to then improve upon yourself and your reactions in the future if you want improvement in your life.

 

Always thinking or asking questions before reacting is rather unnatural and can be a real pain in the butt but do it occasionally and you may be surprised by what you can learn about yourself.

 

Before you purchase food or eat, once in a while ask yourself-could I be eating something more nutritious or healthier that may be just as tasty? This may lead you into deciding to eat more and more organic food in your diet and a healthier you will be the payoff.
