Social Intelligence...


Some interesting points from this book "Social Intelligence" follow:

Did you know that we all have an "antenna" for detecting emotions before we even know it...its called the low road in the book (automatic expression and detection of emotions through the amygdla of the brain) vs. the high road of (consciously expressing and detecting emotions through the frontal part of the brain).

This why something just feel right, and something just feels wrong, because our mind detects it subconsciously, we have to be more in tune with ourselves, meditation, yoga, mindfulness teaches us that.

Did you know that emotions are immensely contagious...there is an empathatic resonance that goes on quite automatically between brains. There was a reference to being around people with toxic emotions is similar to being around people who smoke...your mind reacts to the toxicity of another's emotions its like we have a neural wifi system inside of us...

Did you know that you have mirror cells that automatically mirror what is happening around...it turns out that mirror cells are the key to learning and influencing...that is why violence on tv can be so harmful, so is all this negative programming through entertainment and advertising lure you into a lifestyle that is like a giant mouse trap...if we don't exercise our judgement, we are just like rats being manipulated...

One person can negate one's circle of being influenced by not conforming to the perverted norms of the masses...the vampire can only come in your house invited...you dont have to watch hours of senseless tv...you dont have to associate with people that take you nowwhere but down...you don't have to choose a shallow unhappy lifestyle because everyone thinks that is nivarna...

This reinforces the fact that

"One person can make a difference in the world simply by changing oneself..."
