THE TRUTH ABOUT CONDEMN+

richard-jones-quote-we-condemn-this-terrorist-incident-which-has-tragi

Condemn: v. to communicate very intense disapproval and frequently sensing that the human(s) deserve severe punishment

Condemnation is not only communicating intense disapproval but it is frequently sensing or feeling that the human(s) should be punished severely in some manner for the behavior(s).

The court of law can condemn someone and actually imprison them legally if they disobey the law and some humans secretly would like to condemn some humans to a similar fate of ostracism from society for very bad behavior which they condemn but which may not be illegal or very difficult to prove in a court of law.

A terrorist act is almost always condemned by almost all humans.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CONCURRENCE+

concurrence

Concurrence: n. agreeing on identical facts and/or opinions but not always simultaneously

Concurrence is agreeing on identical facts and/or opinions mutually or by more than two humans but not always simultaneously.

Concurrence does not necessarily mean that the agreement is simultaneous because a short duration may elapse and one human may agree on Monday and the others on Tuesday or some other day relatively close to Monday.

THE TRUTH ABOUT DEFENSE+

self-defense-zone-1

Defense:  n. an action(s) whose goal(s) is to prevent a change in a subset(s)

Whether you are defending your territory against aggression or whether you are defending your beliefs against opposing ones, a defense basically tries to prevent change in something and you take actions whose goal is to conserve something from destruction and/or undesirable change.

A defense against a physical assault is to try and prevent personal injury so you may take certain actions to defend yourself against harm.

In sports there are opposing teams and there are defensive actions taken against the competitor to try and assure that no goal or points are scored.

There is even a saying that the best defense is a good offense and this is true in historical wartime where a blitzkrieg and rapid troop movement is superior to defensive actions such as the Maginot line.

ISIS was successful in taking much territory in Iraq because of rapid and decisive offensive actions against a cowardly theoretically superior equipped defensive force. A brave armed moral citizenry could have successfully defended against ISIS and a brave armed moral citizenry can protect a nation from tyrannical takeover.

In sportsmanlike competitions unfortunately a balanced approach is usually the best of both worlds where you try to have both a very good defense and a very good offense.

In a terrorist war some defense is necessary but ultimately excellent intel and an ability to take out the leadership at will is what is necessary. If you don’t create fear in the leadership of a terrorist outfit then they pretty much can operate at will and do their dastardly deeds quite successfully. Even succeeding one percent of the time can still be classified a successful terrorist operation because of the tremendous fear it creates in the general public, especially with the help of a complicit worldwide media blitz.

You will never have a successful defensive war against a lone wolf terrorist who can pretty much plot a dastardly deed incognito and unleash the violent furry at will. Lone terrorists are simply something which future societies will have to live with and tolerate as long as guns and explosives are prevalent in society or in the world. Guns and explosives which can either be bought, smuggled, or stolen.

Even if guns and explosives are excluded from the entire world there will still be assaults with knives, self made bows and arrows, etc. The best defense against violence is to have a moral citizenry which does not tolerate immorality and insists on lengthy incarceration for repeat violent offenders.

I would simply recommend that the mass killings by mentally ill humans not be publicized as much and not become political footballs by the media. Massive attention given to mass killings just promotes copycat killers in the future who also delusionally want to leave their terrible quite rare violent statistical mark on society and gain their few days of international infamy.

THE GOLDEN RULE MIGHT WORK IN AN IDEALIZED EGALITARIAN SOCIETY BUT NOWHERE ELSE!!!

The golden rule is really a statement of reciprocity or a back and forth exchange of something such as a behavior or actions.

Do to others what you want them to do to you. or

Treat each other as they would like to be treated themselves. or

Do unto others as we would be done by. or

Do unto me as I would do unto you.

While this rule has valid meaning in an exchange between two humans with the same or similar socioeconomic status, the same or similar moral values or basic beliefs, and the same or very similar religion, it is unworkable between very unequal humans with wide differences in ability, wealth, morality, beliefs, religion, etc.

If one human is healthy, very talented, well educated, has integrity, is wealthy, and maybe even has celebrity status and the other human is unhealthy, very ignorant or badly educated, has limited ability, is morally flawed, is financially destitute or on permanent welfare, and has a lousy reputation- the wants, desires, or needs of the two individuals or humans are as different as night and day and the question of just reciprocity or exchange becomes a very complicated issue and not intuitively obvious.

The greatly handicapped destitute human would probably want and desire at least half or more of the wealth of the talented celebrity. Is that a just social solution? Definitely not, so the egalitarian golden rule crashes and burns in this example!

The golden rule definitely does not apply to very unequal humans and unfortunately it is a fact of life that humans can in fact be very different from each other despite the fact that the majority or common humans have many more similarities and the golden rule would apply a little more relevantly to them.

Historically in a mostly agricultural society where most were farmers and craftsmen with similar income levels and common religious values, the golden rule made much more sense. Even now in a very unequal society the rules of polite reciprocal etiquette amongst most members of society apply and are still relevant.

In an egalitarian or collective society whose unrealistic aim is to make everyone EQUAL in health, wealth, ability, education, etc. the golden rule of reciprocity would apply in almost all cases because everyone would be thought of a being equal in all ways biologically and environmentally or circumstantially. The factual reality is that everyone is born biologically different with the exception of identical twins, and almost everyone is brought up in different environments or circumstances which impact how they will ultimately turn out in life.

The reciprocity of the golden rule is an interesting philosophical idea but the reality is that it is a very bad guide or has minimal value in solving social and individual problems. The golden rule in too many cases is just not a just principle to follow.

THE NEUROSCIENCE OF INTELLIGENCE!!!

Richard J. Haier has written a great book on the neuroscience of intelligence which irrefutably proposes that intelligence IQ is largely inherited and it may be possible in the future to change genes so that our offspring will be more intelligent. However, there is not conclusively just one gene which is a marker for intelligence but rather a complex arrangement of many genes and how important each one is in determining IQ is still an open question.

 

What is a fact is that nurture or information input will not fundamentally increase your IQ or the g factor or general intelligence factor which remains relatively constant throughout your lifetime. Yes, life or genetics is not fair and some have just been gifted with greater intelligence potential than others. Sure you can have a high IQ and not put it to good use but without a high IQ you will be struggling to keep up with those that do have high IQ’s and are working hard to put their potential to good use.

 

IQ is fundamentally a function of how good a memory you have and how efficient your mind is at processing information which you get through the senses. Even intelligence is not uniform in it’s power and there are those who are mathematically more intelligent than verbally and others who are more verbally intelligent than mathematically. That said it is time to change our educational system so that it is more responsive to the needs of high IQ individuals and those who are handicapped with relatively low IQs below about 85.

 

In a technological age it is increasingly important to get the most out of mathematically gifted individuals who can enter science, computer science, engineering, and other technological fields which are in great demand. Frankly liberal arts are no longer that important for society as they once were thought to be and most of it is frankly an excursion into subjective or biased verbosity which bores the average human and has little relevance to their daily lives and struggles.

 

The average human with an average IQ is fast becoming somewhat useless for society in general and it is a sad fact that a ruling technological elite will be making most of the political decisions in the future and modern society will become highly robotized. A depressed feeling of uselessness will be rampant in society and the welfare system will have to be designed to accommodate all the individuals who will fall through the cracks and not feel that they are contributing members of society.

 

Can a society where most of the citizens are parasites on the society survive in the long duration is a question open to debate. Already there are signs that such a society will be implemented with the idea of a guaranteed national income for everyone. It is probable that most of us will become consumers and not producers and what this will do to the fabric of responsible family units is nothing short of catastrophic. What will be the incentive to study hard and to work hard if you can take it easy, rely on the government for support, and live out your life in a hedonistic pursuit of personal pleasure?

 

That said I have offered solutions to this unsettling dilemma in my writings so I hope that some intelligent humans will take time out to read, reflect, and start doing something significant to make a Domesday scenario less likely.

THE PROBABLE IMPACT OF LEGALIZING DRUGS IN A HEDONISTIC SOCIETY!!!

There is some scientific evidence to suggest that if your life is going along relatively smoothly with physical health, a moral outlook, a useful education, a few good friends, good social interaction, a good paying job, financial responsibility, a happy marriage, and generally a feeling that you are contributing to society in some meaningful way that the probability that you will need or do drugs is minimal. Basically if you are moral, eat healthy, have drug free good friends, and are gainfully employed then you will seldom have a serious drug habit.

But seriously ask yourself whether society or any social program can offer equal opportunity to achieve such desirable happiness or circumstances once you have fallen through the cracks and become a habitual drug user? To gain desirable circumstances requires time, effort, sacrifice, achievement, optimization of ability, money, a moral family, and a useful educational background. Just do what feels good or follow your passion will definitely not work under most circumstances. Life is not fair for most and those are the humans more prone to drug use.

On the other hand if you are in bad physical health, don’t have a moral family, have dysfunctional friends who gamble, are promiscuous, and are financially unstable then you are in danger. If you are bad at social interaction, are badly educated, depressed, have a lousy job or no job at all, are unhappily married or not married at all, and feel that you are contributing nothing to society then drugs can be a very tempting escape mechanism to try and feel good for a change.

Increasingly western society is being filled with dysfunctional individuals isolated from wholesome human contact who do drugs to try and escape their desperate isolated or confusing lives. Others socialize with dysfunctional hedonistic friends who are lousy role models to imitate. When teenage and adult peer pressure is hedonistic then it is just a question of time before you crash and burn and potentially ruin your life and whatever future you still have ahead of you.

A society filled with rehab centers is not a very stable society and the more drugs that are legalized the greater will be the percentage of humans using them on a regular basis which many now still call an addiction problem. The opiod crisis is just the tip of the legal and illegal iceberg and legalizing all drugs as in Portugal will unfortunately eventually result in a large percentage of the largely hedonistic drug taking population being bad contributing members to society.

Maybe eventually an unhappy dysfunctional human workforce will largely be replaced with dependable, trustworthy, competent robots. What may then happen is that most of the population will be strung out on mind altering drugs most of the time and on government welfare. There is an old saying which still applies in modern times even though you don’t have to believe in devils. “Idle minds and hands are the devil’s workshop”. Simply put, if you have nothing useful to do in life then you will probably get yourself into trouble personally and socially.

If drugs are legalized then there will be more children, students, nannies, teachers,  vocational and professional workers in responsible positions strung out on drugs and making the workforce more dangerous and inefficient than it already is. Can any nation with legalized drugs survive and be powerful, respected, and morally functional in other than a third world status? I highly doubt that this is possible.

I hope the crisis never becomes so acute that drug pushers or dealers will have to be executed but that may be the only sane alternative to continuing to do nothing constructive and gradually letting the nation slide into a mind altering drug haze both legal and illegal.

If there is a moral to be gleaned from history it is- “don’t become a hedonistic individual and participate in a hedonistic society”. Hedonistic individuals and societies don’t last long.

HELPING OTHERS WILL OFTEN MAKE YOU HAPPIER!!!

 A-person-has-two-hands-One-for-helping-himself-the-other-for-helping-others

Helping others, giving to charity, or volunteering reinforce our moral values and actually chemically makes us feel better. Giving to charity is a transient good feeling but volunteering and interacting with humans and giving something of yourself usually increases your sense of selfworth and makes you feel good about the kindness which you are demonstrating. Gratitude on the part of the receiver is also appreciated and makes us feel good about an overall positive interaction.

Volunteering can not only boost your selfesteem but it can also boost your friendliness quotient and improve your bonding potential with others. Volunteering can be a rewarding experience, it can boost your mood, give you a sense of purpose, lower stress, and give you a sense of belonging to the community. Volunteering also can increase your sense of gratitude for what you have and will provide guidelines for how you can help yourself in times of need.

Most important is helping others by mentoring them to succeed in life. Whether you are mentoring offspring or an adult to follow in your footsteps and then exceed you, you are creating the leaders of tomorrow and this will give you great satisfaction latter in life. The bonding which happens during mentoring can lead to lifelong friendships which will definitely increase your happiness quotient.

Finally kindness is often contagious and often reciprocated by moral humans whom you are being kind to. Being able to help a friend in need with advice or other kinds of emotional or physical support will make you happier in many cases and your friend may reciprocate the favor at some point in the future. Even though the personal benefits of volunteering or helping acquaintances and strangers may not be as rewarding as helping a friend it can be rewarding none the less.

There are sociopaths, selfish individuals, and miserly types who help others only if they feel that they will get more back at some point in the future. Most moral individuals have been taught that helping others or being kind is a good thing and they help others because they feel it is the righteous thing to do and they feel good doing it most of the time. Interaction with moral humans is what makes happiness possible so don’t be overly disappointed or unhappy if not everyone appreciates your kind helping attitude because not everyone is moral.

30 WAYS TO REDUCE STRESS IN YOUR LIFE!!!

stress-reduction

If you have a stressful job then you are limited in the ways that you can reduce the bad stress unless you find a better one.

9 WAYS TO RELIEVE STRESS ON THE JOB–

Celebrate small successes with tasty food and/or drink with a minimum of sugar.

Stop thinking about past mistakes or failures as being overly important because they will probably be unimportant a month or year from now.

Do many similar small tasks all at once.

Divide a large task into smaller steps.

Be more selective in your information intake so you don’t drown in it.

Take 5 or 10 minute breaks during work and do non work related things.

Don’t procrastinate at a task because you will be stressed when you start running out of time.

Don’t work evenings and weekends except in emergencies.

Find or selfeducate yourself for a less stressful job.

21 WAYS TO REDUCE STRESS AT HOME AND AWAY FROM WORK:

Almost everywhere else the key to reducing stress is to take time out and do things which are not that stressful or they are things which you enjoy or could enjoy doing.

Here is a relatively comprehensive list of minimally stressful activities which you can start doing to considerably reduce the overall stress in your life:

Read an informative article, newspaper, blog, or book.

Look at soothing internet pictures of inspiring wildlife, landscapes, flowers, trees, etc.

Go to a comic cartoon website like gocomics.com and look at funny or inspiring cartoons which you prefer.

Surf the internet.

Write about something which doesn’t cause anxiety such as happy moments, a topic which interests you and can be researched, or even start a personal blog devoted to stuff which you really like.

Get involved in a hobby or hobbies that interest you.

Listen to your favorite music.

Watch movies that you like.

Meditate, breathe deeply, and think about something other than work.

Exercise.

Take a walk preferably outdoors.

Take a shower or bath.

Get a massage.

Get plenty of sleep.

Eat or drink something tasty without much sugar.

Email someone.

Have sex.

Stop arguing over politics, sports, religion, or beliefs which you can’t change.

Call a friend for a chat.

Volunteer and join a club or organization if you find the time.

Spend some time chatting or doing something with your offspring if you have any.

https://uldissprogis.com/2015/03/23/many-sources-of-bad-stress-and-what-to-do-about-them/

CONCLUSION:

The key to reducing stress is really just to find humans and activities which are not too stressful or cause you too much of the wrong kind of anxiety. If you can’t find humans who don’t cause you bad anxiety then learn to reduce stress on your own by doing many pleasurable things that make you personally happy and don’t lead to financial hardship.

Good friends are nice to have but bad ones with many personal problems or severe addictions should be avoided like a contagious disease. It is better to go it alone than to get mired in stressful relationships with dysfunctional humans.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SELFESTEEM!!!

T-ImproveSelfEsteem-enHD-AR1

Selfesteem or a sense of selfworth is really a balancing act between two extremes. At one extreme too much selfesteem can translate into a very narcissistic selfish human who ignores others too much and at the other extreme too little selfesteem can translate into a very depressed, lonely, unhappy human with a sense of great inferiority.

Society values attractive, well educated, professional, and wealthy humans with good families if they chose to have them. Society also values celebrities and if you evaluate your selfesteem based on celebrity performance then you will always feel wanting more out of your life.

If you are unattractive, badly educated, have a bad job or no job, and have a dysfunctional family life then chances are that you will not have a healthy balance of selfesteem.

Useful education or an ability to selfeducate yourself as an adult is the primary path to better selfesteem. Learning new useful knowledge and skills for a better job or better relationships is the only real way to improve yourself to the point where you begin to feel good about yourself and your life and start having justified healthy selfesteem.

If you come from a dysfunctional family then unfortunately you will have a hard time developing healthy selfesteem because chances are great that your relationships with others will also be highly dysfunctional.

How does an adult improve their personality if it has many flaws originating in a bad childhood? Some are fortunate and with dogged determination and making connections with moral healthy optimistic adults or good role models gradually work their way out of personality handicaps. Most are handicapped for life and just try to make the best of what they took from society and what they were given by the role models whom they associated with.

If you are an adult struggling with low selfesteem then you can try to do something about it by researching personality traits and pinpointing your weaknesses and strengths or bad and good habits. Then gradually work at improving your weaknesses or bad habits and get rid of your bad role model friends. Start replacing them with better role model friends once you get your own personality in better shape so you will be more readily accepted by these better role model friends.

A good life is having useful abilities and associating with good humans so start acquiring those useful abilities as soon as possible and start improving your life so your selfesteem will improve with it!!!

16 POTENTIAL ENEMIES OF INTIMACY OR A RELATIONSHIP!!!

download

Many of the enemies of a relationship are also enemies of intimacy. Intimacy is really a closeness of two humans emotionally and physically and anything which reduces this closeness can be considered to be a disruptive influence or a potential enemy.

Much less communication,

disrespectful and critical comments,

hiding or lying about true feelings and events causes distrust,

an overly domineering attitude which minimizes sharing,

getting bored with predictable repetitive routines,

adultery,

mental and/or physical abuse,

financial overspending,

loss of a job,

over dedication to job,

sexual denial by wife,

severe addiction,

irresponsible behavior,

disagreement on how to raise offspring,

getting old, and

an increase in combative or arguing behavior are potential causes of decreasing intimacy and correspondingly threats to the relationship.

Some may argue that loss of a job, financial overspending, a severe addiction, and adultery are indirect causes of a reduction in intimacy but all of these behaviors can directly increase arguing, distrust, disrespectful and critical comments so intimacy is still affected adversely even if this happens indirectly.

DO YOU NEED A THERAPIST?

therapy-Flickr

There are family councilors, general councilors, psychologists, and psychiatrists all claiming to have therapist status. There are also occupational, speech, and other specialized therapists who don’t treat relationship problems.

If you have acute insomnia, have frequent wild mood swings, have suicidal thoughts, are chronically depressed, or hear voices in your head then medication and a psychiatrist may be a logical alternative.

If you are depressed, have a dysfunctional family life, have a severe addiction, are stuck in an abusive relationship, or are going through a very traumatic moment in your life then a psychologist or councilor may be your best choice if you feel that you can no longer cope with your life on your own.

Finding a competent and reputable therapist is like looking for a needle in a haystack because most psychiatrists are interested in making money and are prone to offer pill solutions to severe problems which get you addicted and medicated for life with minimum time invested and no cure with many bad side effects.

Most psychologists and councilors are well intentioned but tend to be inexperienced, are steeped in situation ethics, and are too prone to give superficial advice on how to deal with severe emotional stress. Talking seldom solves severe problems which need radical environmental change which means changing a job, getting a divorce, going to rehab, or finding moral healthy friends to replace the bad ones.

Talking alone may result in a human leaving the therapists office in a good mood. But returning to their daily environment has all the trigger mechanisms which reinforce the bad habits which they have and the one hour therapy session can’t compete with a dysfunctional environment which reinforces the bad habits which the patient is burdened with.

Relatively minor relationship problems may be solved by a therapist but severe ones are seldom solved since it requires much money and major behavioral change which few adult humans are capable of because they are financially poor and trapped in their bad habits and bad environment on into the foreseeable future.

If you have integrity, are trustworthy, dependable, competent, friendly, and empathetic then chances are that you won’t need a therapist. If you don’t have integrity, are untrustworthy, not dependable, not competent, not friendly, and are not empathetic then all the therapy in the world will not cure you or solve your relationship problems. You are a severely handicapped dysfunctional human being that talking therapy will not cure.

If you are a city dweller with severe stress and emotional problems which are out of control and no therapy works on you then consider moving to a farm or farm community and getting in touch with nature and a heavy dose of physical labor. This kind of radical behavior modification may solve most of your severe emotional problems and recondition your mind and body in a healthy way.

MANY WAYS TO STIMULATE PERSONAL GROWTH!!!

personal-growth-22

If you are happy with what you are currently doing and your future seems bright then personal growth may not be necessary since you are already growing in the right direction. If you are somewhat discontented with your present status in life then a little personal growth may be what is needed.

To personally grow that basically means researching NEW knowledge, acquiring NEW skills, and experiencing NEW things and not doing the standard things which you like and avoiding what you dislike. To grow you need to stretch yourself beyond your present good and bad habits by doing something NEW or different.

Grow in selfawareness by not only reflecting on what you like or dislike but also by reflecting on your status or situation in the world around you. Being aware of your needs and wants and your personality weaknesses and strengths is important and you get there with much introspection and time spent alone to think. Real selfawareness means that you realistically assess what you can and can’t do now and in the future and decide what you would like to do in the future which is highly possible or probable.

Motivation to grow ultimately comes from within but external motivators such as good friends can also begin you on a path to personal growth. This is why it is important to try and associate with humans who are great or good role model humans. Just as important is to try and avoid or exclude humans from your life who are bad role models or have too many bad habits which can begin to rub off on you if you associate with them for too long.

Try to go outside your comfort zone and meet new humans which can even be friends of friends. With new friends might come new opportunities to do something different and engage in new experiences and new opinions and beliefs.

New experiences offer the opportunity to learn new things and interact with new humans who are passionate about what they are doing. A new hobby, traveling to new locations, joining a club or organization, volunteering, developing an interest in therapeutic nature on the internet and in person, and researching a new topic on the internet or reading a new book can all result in personal growth and an exposure to new opportunities and activities.

Declutter your life of many old possessions which you are not using on a regular basis and you will sense some liberation from the past. Watch much less drama TV where humans fight, argue, complain, and backstab and where we learn nothing new about the good life which we would actually want to lead.

All the above are ways to stimulate personal growth and the best time to start on that path is right now! Ultimately you are the one who has to make a conscious decision to act a little differently and grow into uncharted territory. What we are really asking of you to do is to rekindle that sense of childhood CURIOSITY about the world around you.

If you are rather old, jaded, and think that there is nothing new under the sun and that you already know everything useful then stimulating your CURIOSITY may be a lost cause and personal growth is out of the question. I personally don’t believe that an old human can’t learn something new which will benefit them in some way. New learning is definitely a way of staying mentally young and active on into old age.

The most important principle of personal growth is to BE CURIOUS and to maintain that CURIOSITY until the day that you die! Starting to ask questions about the world around you is a good way to start!

8 IMPORTANT FACTORS IN CLOSE GOOD RELATIONSHIPS!!!

f351bf90837754628b3248f48475cca8

If you have integrity and are trustworthy, dependable, competent, friendly, and empathetic then your chances of forming close, good relationships is optimized. Being immoral and having many bad habits or one or more severe handicapping bad addictions will almost always ruin the possibility of close, good relationships. That being said there are 8 important factors which affect the strength of a bonding relationship:

TRUST:

Trust is the most important bonding characteristic which makes a relationship possible in the first place. Being honest, sincere, and moral or having integrity means that a relationship can potentially flourish if nurtured further.

Lie, steal, or commit adultery and trust can’t exist. Some dysfunctional relationships continue to exist without trust because of fear of abandonment or the fear of physical violence but these relationships are definitely not good or happy ones.

COMMUNICATION:

A relationship is threatened and often ruined if the communication is very bad, if there is very little of it, and definitely ruined when there is no communication at all.

Ideal communication is being a good listener, asking relevant questions, being relatively brief in responses, respecting opposing opinions or beliefs, not being verbally abusive or offensive, and interrupting or changing the subject if the conversation becomes too verbose, too trivial, too emotional, or irrelevant.

RESPECT:

If you have integrity then you will be respected but respect can also be increased with appropriate kindness, gratitude, caring, empathy, openness, listening, dependability, responsibility, competence, expertise, confidence, tolerance of opposing opinions and beliefs, and respect increases by not being verbally or physically abusive. A socially prominent respected human will often also be admired.

RESPONSIBILITY:

A responsible human accepts the consequences of his or her actions and does not try to find excuses or blame others for his or her own mistakes and failures. Moral, parental, behavioral, and financial responsibility is essential for a good relationship.

COOPERATION:

Sharing and/or compromising on parental, household, and financial responsibilities is the essence of what cooperation is. Mutually agreeing on what is to be done by who at what time is what cooperation between two or more individuals means. Whether it is between two individuals or an entire team or organization a good relationship depends on successful cooperation.

BEING GOOD ROLE MODELS:

A good relationship thrives if the participants in the relationship are good role models. This is particularly important in parenting where offspring will do what you do rather than do what you tell them to do. Words are rather weak motivators if your personal behavior and your words don’t match up. If you are a good friend then associate with humans who are also good friends or try to mostly have relationships with good role model humans.

Realistically not that many are good role models and you will also have to learn how to interact with quite a few bad role models in the course of a lifetime without becoming overly cynical, jaded, or spoiled.

INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM:

In any relationship one must respect individual interests and pursuits which make a relationship interesting and potentially more rewarding. Encouraging or motivating someone to pursue their individual interests and build upon their strengths is usually good for a relationship.

PATIENCE:

Not every problem or confrontation needs an urgent solution. Sometimes some research, further discussion, consulting with competent adults, and just letting more time to pass determines whether mutual agreement is possible or whether a live and let live attitude is preferable.

Transient angry confrontations should be minimized by patiently waiting until a given situation can be calmly discussed instead. Angry confrontations often cause insults, put downs, name calling, humiliation, and ridicule which just creates bad feelings and no resolution of the conflict.  

Important problems with potential solutions need patient waiting until enough information and resolve grows to a point where a solution is obvious and possible.

Most parental relationships have a dominant or controlling partner who makes most of the important family decisions and runs the risk of becoming too tyrannical and impulsive with her or his demands. Emotional patience is often a virtue and patiently doing something is less of a virtue especially if it takes the form of procrastination on too many things.

HOW TO BE MORE CHARMING!!!

Charm-School-1st-Level

Charm: v. to arouse pleasantness and/or admiration by being visually attractive and polite and friendly and likable

If you want to be more charming, especially to the opposite sex then you have to be visually more attractive, polite, friendly, and likable.

If you are polite, friendly, and likable chances are that you will still be attractive even though you may not be handsome or beautiful and well off financially with nice clothes, car, house, and costly adult toys.

Yes, many humans marry uncharming humans who are not that friendly, not that polite, not very likable, and borderline attractive. Many eventually end up in divorce because truly charming individuals are a rarity in society and there is no proof that charming individuals have longer duration marriages, especially in overly promiscuous societies. A charming individual is really an idealized human being with an abundance of good human behaviors and unfortunately in the real world most humans fall far short of this idealized state of charm.

 

Politeness: n. intentional respect and consideration and using accepted social etiquette

Politeness varies to some extent from culture to culture and the etiquette has some minor and major differences. Showing respect and consideration is also slightly different from culture to culture since it is dependent on etiquette to some extent.

Likability is mostly a question of showing that you care about someone and are empathetic. Nurturing and protecting another human is what caring is all about. Being empathetic takes some emotional intelligence and it means being able to detect impulsively or by asking relevant questions how a human is feeling at the moment and often how they are feeling about a given subject of conversation.

Humans like to be respected and one way to show this is to be genuinely glad when meeting someone. Being a good listener, asking relevant sincere and open ended questions, eye contact, mimicking a smile, frown, or head nod are ways of showing that you care about another human’s conversation and that you empathize with what they are saying. Giving humans this feedback is the essence of human bonding through conversation and gesture which demonstrates an ability to get more intimate with another human. By listening more yet still smartly conversing you are making the other human feel important and respected which raises your likability factor considerably.

Likability also increases when you occasionally reveal a vulnerability or a weakness proving that you are not perfect but just another slightly flawed human who also has failed on occasion. You come across as a genuine likable human and not an overconfident, arrogant, egotistical fake perfectionist.

Another obvious vulnerability is making a mistake. Likable humans own up to mistakes, take full responsibility, sometimes promise to not make the same mistake again, and sometimes make a joke or laugh at the mistake. Often others laugh with you and not at you. They like you more because you are genuine and not perfect and other humans often empathize with you rather than mock you.

Opposing opinions can often lead to arguments and confrontations if you always look for opposing views to challenge. A likeable human embarks on trying to find places of agreement first to converse about and has a live and let live tolerant view of strongly held opinions and beliefs which are usually not subject to change.

Being friendly is far more complex. You are considered friendly if you are friendly in very similar ways no matter what the status of the human and treat them with common respectful conversation without being rude, arrogant, or offensive. Try very hard to remember names and even the names of best friends and close relatives. Friendly humans usually don’t name drop and try to brag or impress others with celebrity status connections if there are any.

Finally friendliness is a function of your good basic personality. If you have integrity and are trustworthy, dependable, competent, caring, empathetic, confident, and communicate well then many more humans will be attracted to you and you will be able to bond more closely with better friends and significant others who share most of your basic traits.

Charming an audience or charming a potential spouse has some different skill sets but the foundational behaviors of charming individuals is largely the same and only vary in degree and not substance.
