Magnets can make a person less grimacing, says research
Caretice now has a solution. At least this is what a study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology says in the United States. Exposure of the area of the brain responsible for moral judgments to magnetic charges changes our perception of the world causing us to have less conservative reactions to something we would normally condemn.
According to the researchers, there is an area of the brain, behind the right ear, which is called the right temporo-parietal junction and becomes more active when you judge the actions of others in terms of good or bad conduct. When exposed to magnetic charge, volunteers had this part of the brain partially deactivated, making them less rigorous in their moral judgments. P>
The researchers evaluated 1200 volunteers who underwent two experiments. In the first one, 600 of them were exposed to a powerful magnetic field at the right temporo-parietal junction of the brain for 25 minutes and then had to judge the character's attitudes day by day. For example, a scenario described a couple where the man allowed his partner to cross an extremely dangerous bridge.
Volunteers with altered morality found that the man's attitude was admissible because the girl arrived unscathed on the other side, while results in people who did not undergo magnetic exposure would be otherwise
In a second experiment, the 1200 people responded to a test while exposed to magnetism and the result was the same.
All 600 who were exposed to the magnet were more tolerant to certain situations and said to be surprises to themselves since they would certainly react differently if they were free of magnetic action.
For the researchers, these results show that our perception of right and wrong is not only based on the way we have been educated or religious and philosophical principles, but on a biological tendency that can be controlled with external stimuli, which can help to understand and soften the behavior of intolerant people. >
The book brings a true and deep study of habits. In addition to showing how they work, author Charles Duhigg also explains how they can be transformed into practice. Imagine if you can make the habit of using the ladder instead of the elevator and how good it will be for your health. This is just one example of how habits influence our routine, but once transformed, we can gain in productivity, stability, and well-being.
Every healthy relationship requires a good deal of communication and also limits. Therefore, knowing how to impose oneself, learning to speak, not being able to give limits or not letting people invade their space is a fundamental task, but arduous for some. There are those who do it lightly and with mastery, but not all who are born know how to solve these questions.
