‘Love and Romance’, the way I feel it: Dorothee Heckmann (28)

Q. What is love? How would you define it?

Dorothee: I think there are two ways of love. Just two, between man and woman. One of it is the normal way, that means, I think I need someone to clean my flat, to tell me that I am beautiful or to spend some time with me or anything like that. It means I have a need. And this is a ‘shit love’.

On the other hand, you have to be a complete person of your own. You have to fulfill your own self first and then there is something that you can give. And if you reach this point that you are a complete person of your own and now you can give something, and you meet a person who gives something as well, then it’s like a good relationship because you can create something together. Because you don’t need the other person to feel good or to live your life or whatever. You are self-sufficient and independent. Then you don’t need someone to fill the gaps inside you, like you are alone and for that you need someone. Then you have the real love because it’s from free will. Here you don’t need the other person to do something for you to make you happy or lucky, because you have to be always happy or lucky the way you are living. You can’t ask the other person to make you happy. That’s stupid I think. (more…)

People Aren’t Born Afraid of Spiders and Snakes: Fear Is Quickly Learned During Infancy

There’s a reason why Hollywood makes movies like Arachnophobia and Snakes on a Plane: Most people are afraid of spiders and snakes. A new paper published in Current Directions in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, reviews research with infants and toddlers and finds that we aren’t born afraid of spiders and snakes, but we can learn these fears very quickly. 

One theory about why we fear spiders and snakes is because so many are poisonous; natural selection may have favored people who stayed away from these dangerous critters. Indeed, several studies have found that it’s easier for both humans and monkeys to learn to fear evolutionarily threatening things than non-threatening things. (more…)
