However, an accompanying article suggests a more useful approach might be to measure addiction to social networking as an activity, rather than addiction to a specific product like Facebook. This is particularly…

I got a sneak preview of the much anticipated movie Fifty Shades of Grey last night and I was surprised to see that Dakota Johnson does a great job creating the nuances needed to express the innocence, wonder, and inner strength of Anastasia Steele. Johnson was able to express a dry humor that shows her intelligence and assertiveness in a tension filled scene as they negotiate hard and soft limits. And her handling of a drunk dial call to Christian is quite cute and funny. Unfortunately, I felt Jamie Dornan seemed pretty blocked off emotionally…

Psychology Today Confessions of a Sociopath

Perhaps the most noticeable aspect of my confidence is the way I sustain eye contact. Some people have called it the predator stare. Sociopaths are unfazed by uninterrupted eye contact. Our failure to look away politely is also perceived as being aggressive or seductive.

Source: Susan Sparks The first morning out on the dock was spectacular. The sun was just coming up, mist was rising off the lake, and in this pristine setting … I pulled out my iPhone.
