5 Causes of Aggressive Behavior That Have Childhood Roots.

By Jamie Logie.

July 18, 2019. 

 

 

 

It’s natural to want to avoid anything uncomfortable, but this may lead you down a terrible path.

Part of what makes us human is that we can define our existence by two things: Gaining pleasure and avoiding pain. We want to avoid anything that takes us out of our comfort zonesand makes us feel uneasy. For solving problems – which you will undoubtedly face – avoidance coping is an unhealthy way to do it.
This article will look at what avoidance coping is, why it’s not effective at solving your problems, and how to stop it

 

What Is Avoidance Coping?

Whenever a person faces trauma, they deal with it in one of two different ways: either through approach coping or, as we’re looking at here – avoidance coping.
It’s hard to sum up what avoidance coping is, but we can look it at more like an orientation for how you cope. With avoidance coping, you are adopting a bunch of behaviors that allow you to distance yourself from any trauma. This can look like:
  • Distancing yourself from the issue either through diving more into your work or other activities
  • Minimizing the scope of the trauma and minimizing your feelings
  • Denial that anything is even happening to you
  • Addiction to help cope either through drugs, alcohol, or even overeating
  • Isolating yourself from people, oversleeping, and being withdrawn

Why Is This Happening?

Basically, what’s happening is a form of being an ostrich and burying your head in the sand. It’s a refusal to accept reality and current circumstances.
If you’re surrounded by people that care about you, they might also contribute to the avoidance coping. They may be a reminder – or constantly remind you – of whatever the problem is. This can cause you to further push away, isolate yourself, and refuse to approach the issue.
There can become a sense that if you ignore the problem, it will just go away which we all know is the furthest thing from the truth. It doesn’t even matter how big the issue or trauma is. Avoiding it creates the same problems, and the longer you let it go, the bigger it becomes.
This becomes dangerous because if you choose to ignore a small problem, it can snowball into something much bigger and unmanageable.
The thing with avoidance coping is it’s not always a bad thing. Using it helps to avoid stress in the moment and gives the ability to cope. This is ok every once in a while, but if you constantly do it, you will always depend on it never taking action – or accountability.
Over time, constantly coping with things through avoidance can lead to:
  • Emotional numbness which can cause relationship problems
  • A lack of awareness with how you are feeling
  • A lack of awareness with how you relate to the world
  • An inability to take appropriate action and the chance to heal

How Can You Stop Avoidance Coping?

On the one hand, a person using avoidance can cope – but only for the moment. Nothing gets solved like this, it does not resolve the trauma, and it can grow and fester even worse. It might seem like a quick fix, but it only gets worse, in the long run, causing more stress.

The first thing to look at is approach coping or active coping.

This involves changing your way of thinking about the stressor. If you look at every problem as having a solution, it can become easier to overcome. A trauma or stressor only has power over you if you allow it to. Knowing we can conquer it can create a powerful mindset that allows you to approach it head-on.
This cognitive coping is the first step as many of the problems we face are ones we’ve built up in our own minds. Your mind is like a muscle and you can train it to stop thinking in an overly negative way.

The next big thing is to come to grips with the idea that coping like this does not work.

The sooner you can realize this, the sooner you can make progress. Just by reading an article like this shows you are making the first steps. Gaining the information behind what avoidance coping is gives you power over it and can help you stop it.

Another big way to stop it is to recognize when you’re doing it.

Make a note every time you avoid coping with something and you’ll soon learn to nip it in the bud.
This is also a good time to use stress relief techniques such as meditation, yoga, and exercise. It’s not that you’ll be avoiding a problem, but you’ll put yourself into a calmer state to deal with it. Trying to deal with trauma with heightened stress is a recipe for disaster, and it’s better to go in calm and relaxed.

Final Thoughts

Avoidance coping is a natural thing and nothing to be ashamed of. It is important to recognize if it’s got out of control for you and needs to be addressed. The sooner you can stop this method of coping, the sooner you can take control of your life, emotions, and mental health.
This is difficult and does require some work. Learning to reframe your thoughts is the best place to start and can put you into a better headspace to cope. Another good idea is to remember to take small steps and not feel you have to deal with everything at once.
Start changing your behavior by taking small steps instead of thinking you have to overhaul yourself in one big swoop. Having an accountability partner is a great way to do this and will also help with your communication skills. When you’re able to communicate better, it can make this whole process much more manageable.
And as always, if this feels like something out of your control, talking to a professional is always the smart choice. This can help you approach the problem with a trained professional and is a true act of strength.

5 Causes of Aggressive Behavior That Have Childhood Roots.

By Jamie Logie.

July 17, 2019. 

 

 

 

Can aggressive behavior be because of an overreaction to certain situations, or does it have deeper roots?

When you look at all the violence that’s around us, it seems easy to put blame on it. We also might feel that it’s just our human nature to have aggressive behavior and there’s nothing that we can do about it.
It may also be thought of as an act of self-preservation, connected to our evolutionary biology, and important for our survival. But just because we can be aggressive doesn’t mean that we should. We can be calm and under control, so it shows we don’t have to be controlled by behavior that is violent.
Behavior like this never has a place, but it’s important to look at why it’s happening in the first place. If it’s a reaction to a stressful, or threatening situation that may explain some of it, but does it go deeper?
Looking at the causes of aggressive behavior can help to identify if it’s connected to childhood roots. Getting a better understanding of all this can help in dealing with this dangerous situation.

This article will look at 5 causes of aggressive behavior that may have childhood roots.

1. Imitation Of Daily Life & Environment For Aggressive Behavior

This might be one of the easiest causes to identify that has childhood roots. Children mimic what they see and if they are brought up in an aggressive – or violent – environment, this will have a serious impact on them.
The problem that happens is that this aggressive behavior can accidentally be encouraged without people being aware of it. If we ignore this behavior, it can signal to the child it’s ok and they will continue to act this way throughout their lives.
In worse situations, this behavior may have been encouraged at a young age and it’s cemented into them as a positive characteristic. The instinct to act this way continues into adulthood with the individual unable to understand why it’s become a part of them.

2. Poor Relationship Skills

Some people have had trouble developing proper relationship skills and this can cause them to lash out and get aggressive. It can all come down to being frustrated and not knowing how to handle this frustration. They may also feel overwhelmed in various relationships and it becomes their default setting.
We can trace this back to childhood and a lack of a nurturing environment. The individual may start to see people as threats instead of being able to connect with them. This behavior can easily be carried into the future creating more frustration as they may not understand why relationships can’t develop or be maintained.

3. Trouble Coping With Emotions

Everyone has trouble dealing with emotions at some point, but a well-adjusted person will have learned to cope. Different emotions can easily cause aggressive behavior whether it’s fear, guilt, jealousy, or sadness. When that person gets older, those same emotions can cause the aggressive outbursts as they have never learned how to manage their feelings.
Children cannot handle emotions and it needs to be taught and nurtured, so it doesn’t lead to destructive behavior. This can be even tougher for people with cognitive disorders, or having autism spectrum disorder, as childhood will be even more frustrating.
Besides not having the ability to cope with the frustration, they might not even know why they are feeling the way they do. They also may not even be able to describe the situation causing the frustration.

4. Socioeconomic Status

Whether it’s a child or an adult, certain socioeconomic circumstances can trigger stressors that might lead to behavior that’s aggressive. There can be many factors that cause this including feelings of oppression in the household because of unemployment, lack of financial stability, living situations, and education.
These conditions would affect adults in the household and this would trickle down to any children living there. The child could then carry this mindset into adulthood and those same stressors will again cause aggressive behavior.

5. Depression

Depression is often a cause of this negative behavior, but it might also have childhood roots. Research from 1998 shows that there is a close association between the quality of the child-parental relationship, aggression, and maternal depression.
The evidence also suggests that depressive symptoms in mothers who display negative, unsupportive, and withdrawn behaviors towards their offspring are less likely to develop secure attachments.
Depression in mothers can have a negative impact on children leading to their own depression that causes aggressive behavior. Then when those kids who are depressed have their own children, the cycle continues to repeat.
There are also studies that show a strong connection between depression and aggressive behavior in adolescent males. You can even look back a few years and predict this behavior before it happens. It goes back to looking at the offspring of depressed mothers. When the kids become young adults, they can begin to display this behavior at age 20.

Final Thoughts

There are many causes of aggressive behavior and it’s something that needs to be taken very seriously. It’s important to identify what is causing it, and sometimes it means looking back into the past.
Looking at a person’s childhood can give some insight into what may cause this behavior. From there, correcting it may be much more possible.

Are You a Shy Extrovert? 

8 Signs and Struggles of Being One.

By Sherrie.

July 15th, 2019

 
 
 
You may be familiar with the terms introvert, extrovert, and even ambivert, but what do you know of a shy extrovert?
To be honest, I’ve been through phases when I related to being an introvert and then found similar characteristics in the ambivert personality, as well as even the extrovert. I’ve taken many personality tests and met many people who took the liberty of telling me what they thought, but that was just opinionated.

What is a shy extrovert?

If you’ve ever taken the Myers-Briggs personality test, then you could have been surprised by your results. It’s especially true if you’re shy but your results labeled you as an extrovert.
An extrovert is someone who becomes energized when around other people. They love large crowds and extravagant parties. Introverts, on the other hand, usually energize when alone. With shy extroverts, they like socialization but not being the center of attention.

So, in order to understand if you’re one, you should take a look at a few indicators:

1. Quiet observer

Shy extroverts are often people watchers. Watching all sorts of people pass by on the street and indulging in their emotions and exchanges somehow energizes you.
The subtle expression of animals walking by, an elderly couple nearby, hand in hand, and the boisterous laughter of a group of friends – you love these things, and you don’t even have to be a part of what’s going on…only an observer.

2. People often confide in you

Have you noticed how people tend to come to you for advice? If so, you could be a shy extrovert. Regular extroverts focus mainly on others like them, while you seem to be open to differences and non-judgemental. When friends come to you for advice, you feel right at home helping them work through problems.

3. You are social but in small groups

Extroverted people enjoy large groups and regular social activities. For shy extroverts, large groups and socializing of this nature can be intimidating, even overwhelming.
Small groups of friends are better for you because they allow you to open up without too much pressure. And yes, shy extroverts can be the life of the party as well, just in a small group.

4. You’re usually mistaken for an introvert

While introverts and shy extroverts are similar in many ways, they are very different as well. While introverts get overstimulated at parties, shy extroverts just need a bit of a push to initiate conversations and socializing. When it comes to just being shy, all it takes is getting over the initial fear of speaking up about what’s on your mind.

5. No need for constant conversation

While extroverts can talk almost endlessly about everything, their shy counterparts need a pause every now and then. You need time to formulate well thought out answers instead of sudden rash statements. You definitely rather not have someone answer for you. Shy extroverts can conversate or not, it really doesn’t matter.

Struggles of the shy extrovert

Believe it or not, the shy extrovert struggles with many things. Yes, they love socializing, but they have little quirks that make things complicated at times. Here are a few downsides to being a shy person with the desire to make friends.

1. Drastic personality changes

On some days, the social butterfly can seem happy to make friends and go to exciting events. On other days, the shy extrovert may not have the same warmth at all. That’s why it takes a bit longer to make friends with them. If you do, however, the friendship will be genuine.

2. They usually have to be approached first

Even though they do love social atmospheres, in order to talk to them, you usually have to approach them first. Depending on the shy extrovert to walk up and start a conversation may have you waiting quite some time.
This is because of their initial fear of being the center of attention and meeting a possibly different personality type.

3. Friends come and go

A shy extrovert may make a new friend and even spend hours talking and socializing with that particular person. Here’s the odd part. The next time they see the same person, they may only wave and smile with no intention of approaching them for another conversation.
It could be fear or just the simple lack of need for stimulation from the same friend. It’s just another struggle that’s common among this personality type.

Could this be you?

After I took the Myers-Briggs personality test, I discovered that I was closest to an ambivert, but I still keep looking for clues that could pinpoint more deliberate characteristics.
While it’s fairly simple to recognize an introverted personality, the others can be a bit harder to detect. Pay attention to your reactions to social situations and meeting friends. These could be the best clues of your personality type. Who knows, you may be surprised by what you realize about yourself.

How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes with These 13 Mind Hacks.

By Francesca F.

July 15th, 2019

 
 

Everyone wants to think like Sherlock Holmes, the most famed and impressive detective of all time.

Although he is a fictional character, Sherlock Holmes is famous for his intelligent detective skills and sharp perception. To many, it may seem as though real people could never reach this level of awareness. This, however, is not true.


There are lots of things you can practice so that you can get to the level of the famous Sherlock Holmes.

  1. Stay skeptical

A healthy dose of skepticism helps you to not take things as they seem. Being curious about what others say can illuminate areas they may not be 100% truthful.
It is also important to be skeptical about your own thinking because we get into patterns of thought which may cloud our judgment. Be aware of how outside influences can change or guide your thinking and try to be objective when assessing the situation.
  1. Try to overcome biases, but don’t forget them

We all have learned biases we need to learn to move past. With practice, you can rewire your brain to be more objective about the situation in front of you. However, don’t forget about biases. Learn how they have affected you and think about how others learn them and how they may affect their behaviors.
  1. Observe first impressions closely

Trust your gut. If something sets off your instincts, don’t let it guide your reaction but don’t forget about it. It may be indicative of a character trait or behavior which you can’t yet put your finger on just yet. Consider their confidence, or lack thereof; how they are dressed, or what seems slightly off.
  1. Examine things holistically

To really think like Sherlock Holmes, you must examine things holistically. Don’t just read a note, read between the lines, examine how it looks, how it smells and what this could mean.
Things are never quite what they seem on the surface, and everything gives more information than it seems to. Use all of your senses to evaluate the situation completely.
  1. Engage fully

Engaging in a situation properly will help you to control your automatic responses which can cause us to miss important information. Give situations your full attention, if though you may seem laid back in your responses. Keeping your mind attentive will reveal things you may not have noticed otherwise.
  1. Look at the bigger picture

There is always more going on than what there appears to be. It is easy to focus on the small aspects of a situation, but if you want to learn how to think like Sherlock Holmes, remember there is always a bigger picture. Try to consider what may be influencing decisions and behaviors rather than just what is happening at the moment.
  1. Educate yourself

The most important practice for those who want to sharpen their perception is constant education. Sherlock Holmes is careful to constantly educate and challenge himself, and this is what makes him such a successful investigator. You never know what might spark your genius, so stay educated and mindful of maintaining healthy habits.
  1. Take notes

You may think you know something by simply observing, but this can limit your understanding. Writing things down is the key to thinking like Sherlock Holmes. Reviewing notes can help you recognize patterns and inconsistencies before reaching a conclusion.
  1. Practice active passivity

When you think like Sherlock Holmes, it is not all about what you do do, it’s also about what you don’t do. When you talk to someone, give them your full attention, observe everything. Don’t be playing with your phone or distracted by words alone.
Speaking is not all about the words, it is about how they are spoken and the non-verbal signalswhich come along with them.
  1. Talk it through

Holmes talks everything through with Watson and it is talking things through which helps him find clues he wasn’t aware of before.
When you talk things through, it forces you to clear your thoughts enough to vocalize them. By doing this, you may find that something clicks into place somewhere and find the logical connection between two disparate events.
  1. Be adaptable

The key to thinking like Sherlock Holmes understanding that it is not just an internal process, it is also about adaptability. Holmes does not approach every situation in the same way. Instead, he is careful to observe others and take an approach which will get what he wants out of them.
Assessing peoples’ behaviors and adapting to them helps him get the information he needs from a wide variety of different people.
  1. Find peace

Like anyone, Holmes knows that all brains need peace in order to function properly. Taking the time to rest gives our brains time to process information and make connections. It’s not all about the investigation, it is also about reflection.
  1. Only give energy where it’s needed

It is not necessary to be constantly energetic. In fact, managing your energy properly is one of the key aspects of thinking like Sherlock Holmes. Recognize which tasks are more menial than others and let your gut tell you which characters are more suspicious than others.
Practicing these steps can be a challenge. It can be difficult to see the secret picture behind a situation but, with a little practice, you, too, can learn how to think like Sherlock Holmes.

Sisu: The Finnish Concept of Inner Strength and How to Adopt It.

By Jamie Logie.

July 14, 2019. 

 
sisu finnish inner strength.

 

 

You have more strength in you than you even realize, but how do you bring it out?

Sisu is a Finnish concept based on grit, bravery, and resilience. Sisu is all about having a real stoic determinism and is something that the people of Finland pride themselves on. We may call it “having a stiff upper lip“, but it goes much deeper than that.
This article will look at what Sisu is all about, and how you can adopt it for yourself.

What Does Sisu Really Mean?

I mentioned some of its traits, but we can see Sisu as the ultimate form of courage. It’s about what you do when your back is up against the wall and all the odds are against you.

It’s all about sticking to a course of action and not backing down no matter what adversity you face. No matter the odds you may be up against, Sisu allows you to not be overcome by them.

We can see a popular culture example of this in Han Solo in The Empire Strikes Back. When faced with certain doom from an attack by the Empire, Han Solo – with his back against the wall – takes the Millenium Falcon into an asteroid field.

Something that’s considered a suicide mission. He is informed by C3-PO that the chances of successfully surviving an asteroid field are 3720:1, to which Solo responds, “Never tell me the odds…”.

This is an easy way of looking at Sisu as it’s all about displaying courage in the face of overwhelming adversity – and insurmountable odds. 

How Long Has This Concept Been Around?

Sisu goes back hundreds of years and is one of the foundations of Finnish culture. It’s thought to be one of the best ways to understand what the Fins are truly all about. The country has always prided themselves in going beyond one’s own mental or physical capacity, and Sisu is what represents their people.
Sisu has been explained as the word that describes Finland and that “it’s the most wonderful of all their words“. This became popularized during the famous “Winter War” when the Fins were invaded by the Soviet Union. This occurred during 1939-40 and it’s when Sisu came to the forefront.
Time Magazine noted that the “Sisu” displayed by the Fins was all about tenacity. It was about the ability to keep fighting long after others would quit.
The Fins were able to take the war into Russian territory while at the same time withstanding brutal attacks by a reinforced Russian army. This allowed them to gain the upper hand as the Fins could fight in harsh conditions with no sense of throwing in the towel.
Sisu is all about bravery, bravado, and ferocity.

More Examples of Sisu

Sisu applies well to matters of war and battles, but is it something notable in a modern, non-military aspect? Most people forget that one of the biggest phone companies – Nokia – is actually Finnish. As the wireless phone market grew more intense, Nokia could hang on despite many odds being stacked up against them.
Nokia was constantly able to overcome many obstacles going into the mid-2000s and the “guts” they had displayed allowed them to stick around in the industry.
This was chalked up to the Sisu shown by Nokia’s executives. The CEO of Nokia noted how this unique Finnish quality allowed them to persevere and have endurance where other companies would falter.
We can see Steve Jobs as possessing Sisu as he refused to ever throw in the towel. He had an intensity and endurance that others couldn’t match. For Jobs, it was all about being relentless and not giving in to create the best products possible. No was never an option.
Even being forced to leave the company that he started only made him embrace this white-knuckle courage to push forward and come back stronger than ever turning Apple into one of the biggest companies in history.

Where Does Sisu Come From and How Do You Adopt It?

With the Fins, it’s considered having developed because of their harsh Nordic winters. To survive in an environment like that takes the ultimate in perseverance and courage.
But it’s also seen as a product of genetics, biology, psychological, and social factors. Some of it may be in you, but it’s also able to be nurtured through your environment.
This may be a social construct, but the concept of Sisu can exist in anyone. Some people have this “never give up” mindset from the day they are born – but it’s still possible to develop it.

It all comes down to your thought process and mindset.

If you grow up in an environment that fosters this approach, it will be easier for it to become naturally engrained in you. It may be the culture that allows Sisu to exist in you more than it is genetics.
This means you want to surround yourself with people who have these traits as they are more likely to rub off on you.
If Sisu is something you don’t think you have – and you want to adopt it – it means getting out of your comfort zone and exposing yourself to people – and situations – where resilience is common. Over time, you will embrace the qualities that allow you to persevere and not back down.

It also means retraining the way you think.

Your brain is like a muscle and it needs repetition to get stronger and more developed. Positive thinking – where you tell yourself to be determined and resilient – will eventually become second nature.
You need to catch yourself every time you doubt or second-guess yourself and remember that it’s just your mind telling you these things. You can train your mind, the problem is it’s we have bombarded it with negative self-talk because of the environment and culture we find ourselves in – so it takes work.
When you continue to reinforce the idea of Sisu in your mind, you will find that the perception of it has now become a reality.
