Psychologists Found That Talking To Yourself Could Be A Sign Of Higher Intelligence

Sometimes, talking to yourself, particularly if you use your own name in the conversation can be embarrassing. It may also make you look like you’re hallucinating since the whole purpose of talking out loud is to communicate with other people. In fact, we all talk to ourselves silently every once in a while. It’s actually healthy, playing an important role in keeping your mind fit. It may help you plan actions, organise your thoughts, modulate emotions and consolidate memory. This means that it may help you control yourself. Talking to yourself out loud could be an extension of this inner talk, triggered when a particular motor command is stimulated involuntarily. The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology published a study that showed talking to yourself could enable your brain to function more effectively at recognizing objects. It could also help you stimulate your brain’s memory centers. In addition, saying the name of an object you are looking fo

A Great Psychologist’s Test: Which Door Are You Afraid to Enter?

“The cave you are scared to enter contains the treasure you are looking for” – said Joseph Campbell, an American historian and writer, who has also researched human psychology. His psychological theory is based on the fact that if a person wants to conquer their fears, the person must be happy. Another psychologist who agrees with Campbell’s theory is Clifford N. Lazarus.

Psychologists Say There Are 9 Different Kinds Of Intelligence. You’re Smarter Than You Think.

If you’re a psychologist, professor, and researcher at one of the world’s most prestigious universities then you’re likely very intelligent. Howard Gardner is all of that and happens to work at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education where he studies, of all things, intelligence. Over the years he’s done brain research and interviewed all sorts of people, from geniuses and prodigies to victims of stroke and those with autism. His work eventually led him to develop the theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI Theory for short) which challenged traditional beliefs and definitions concerning what intelligence means. Traditionally, intelligence is viewed as a fixed amount of cognitive capacity that people are born with. It consists of only logic and language abilities, and a person’s intelligence level can’t be changed over their lifetime. Gardner’s MI Theory stands in direct contrast. Instead, he posits that individuals have different amounts, abilities, and uniq
