Organic Food Eaters V/S Comfort Food Eaters

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

Organic Food Eaters VS Comfort Food EatersAre you the one who maintains a strict regime of having food organic in nature? Then you certainly need to know about this! A recent research stated that those who are too much inclined in eating only organic food are less likely to show kindness to others. And, this is because using organic products people feel more secure about themselves and lessens the act to perform unselfishly. Consumption of such foods, also make people to judge people immoral people in a very harsh manner as reported by the team in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science.

On the other hand, comfort foods can make us kinder and social. This study was concluded according to a study done at the Loyola University in New Orleans by allocating 62 students in 3 different groups. One was given the picture of organic food, others were given with ice-cream, chocolates, cookies and brownies, and another group was given of porridge, mustard, rice and beans. Later, they were asked for views on six moral transgressions that ranged of situations like students stealing books from the library, politicians taking bribes and other similar incidences.

The students were made to realize that the study was over and soon after that the students were told that a professor in another department was looking out for volunteers to spare 30 minutes without taking a reward. Students exposed to the organic foods were agreed to spare only 13 minutes of their time to help the professor. And, the students who dealt with the comfort food were happy to give away 25 minutes in comparison to the third group (oatmeal and rice) that got ready to spare only 20 minutes.

According to Dr. Kendall Eskine and colleagues, who wrote the paper Wholesome Foods and Wholesome Morals told that people are more prone to help when they eat something sweet rather than something bitter and disgusting. The psychologists stated that those who purchase organic products are less likely to engage in meaningful acts of environment. Well, for me I am a diehard foodie, so I love to cram food belonging to all sections. What about you?

Know your Man with the Dog he owns

Friday, December 28th, 2012

Know your Man with the Dog he ownsWe all like to judge a book by its cover. Well, the truth is that the external package always seems to appeal us in the first instance. When we meet a guy, we start judging him by his watch, shoes, hairstyle and the number of platinum cards he holds. The external package encases a possible prince charming or may be a boyfriend from hell that one has to actually go ahead and explore. Girls are always caught up with the first look that is displayed in the first instance. Well, that’s obvious too anything that is good does attract everyone. However, there is something more that can help you reveal the character of a man. If you wish to know more about the cute guy you met at the pub or in a restaurant, just follow him when is out in the park with his dog. A recent research states a few rules of social connection.

The modern man is better recognized with the relationship he has with his pet. “There is a definite correlation between a guy’s dog and his personality” as said by Liana Sepulveda, the supervisor at Centinela Feed & Pet Supplies in Santa Monica. Traditionalists have always believed that dogs match the personality with their owners. However, according to modern researchers, the dog does not inherit the qualities of master but probably the other way round. Youngsters who are a bit of unfriendly nature and less agreeable in comparison to their peers are likely to have aggressive pets or dogs. Breeds preferred by them would be Bull Terrier, Labrador Retriever, Collie, German Sheperd etc. It’s a common belief that people with such dogs are more interested to show off and impress the ladies. However, the study does not suggest any strong connection between the two but could be about their less agreeable social standing. As per Dr. Vincent Egan a lead researcher on this study has stated that owners of aggressive dogs are anti-social show offs but not committed to delinquent acts.

So, the next time you find a guy standing in the park with a German Sheperd, a Boxer or a Bull Terrier, you know what to judge about his personality. On the other hand, what do you have to say if you see him with a Labrador or a Mastiff? Else, how about a Chihuahua or a Poodle! J
