Stress-resistant, easy to learn, purposeful, just love to lie

The results are ambiguous: in men, more adrenocorticotropic hormone is secreted than in women, but in terms of cortisol in the saliva, women who participated in the experiment in the second half of the menstrual cycle closely approach men, and even surpass them in heart rate (and significantly outnumber women, participating in the study in the first half of the cycle). Considering that stress generally reduces mental capacity (for example, impairs working memory, that is, the ability to hold several pieces of information in your head and perform some actions on them), it makes sense for women who are inclined to worry about work to have real interviews time of the first half of the menstrual cycle. This is not the conclusion of the authors of the article, if that, but my extended interpretation of scientific data.
In any case, sex differences - this is not the most important thing. More interesting is another thing: the choice of a behavioral response to stress. With all the apparent diversity of possible reactions, they boil down to two strategies. First, you can try to come to terms with the situation: stand still, wait and endure. Secondly, the situation can be changed: to run away, to fight and generally to fuss in every possible way. The bad news is that “choice” is loudly said: the form of behavior in new and potentially dangerous situations is largely innate and depends on the activity of the sympathetic nervous system. If you take a rat, expose it to some stress factor and measure the adrenaline rush and heart rate, it will allow you to predict with a high degree of accuracy how it will behave in all other similar situations 11. If the activity of the sympathetic nervous system is high, then the rat will clash with competitors, bravely explore the new space and actively try to swim when placed in water. If the sympathetic nervous system works less intensively, the animal is more likely to give up in a social collision, it will freeze in the corner for a long time and even swim worse. In this case, one should not assume that an active response to a stress effect is something better (or, on the contrary, worse) than a passive one. A cautious rat will eat worse because it rarely finds rare delicacies and also does not want to fight for its sake with its comrades, but then it gets less dangerous in situations like collision with a predator, so there are no chances to survive and leave offspring no less than a rat with an active lifestyle.
For people, a similar classification was developed in the middle of the last century by American cardiologists Meyer Friedman and Roy Rosenman. They introduced the concept of behavioral types A and B and developed questionnaires to separate one from another. People belonging to behavioral type A (in its extreme manifestations) are energetic, aggressive, ambitious, prone to competition with others, in their professional activities they are constantly concerned about the lack of time and strive for high productivity, they abruptly move and speak abruptly. Their opposite, people of type B, are relaxed and calm, patient, spend more time with their hobbies, are non-irritating, work steadily, are less concerned with competition with others, move smoothly and speak. From the point of view of cardiology, the meaning of this separation was that belonging to type A was, as it was then believed, associated with high blood pressure and significantly increases the risk of developing coronary heart disease, so these people should be advised to take better care of their health.
In modern cardiology, this theory was abandoned, because in the study of large groups of subjects it was not possible to identify a significant statistical relationship between the predisposition to cardiovascular diseases and personality traits associated with behavioral type A. But the terminology has taken root in studies of stress, at least in Russia . In early 2013, the newspaper “Trinity Option”, with which scientists and scientific journalists collaborate, published my interview with Dmitry Zhukov, half devoted to his research on rats exhibiting type A or type B behavior under stress. He shared fresh news: it turns out behavioral type depends on how effective antidepressants will be. Traditional and fussy rats, depressed, traditional drugs help well, but calm and passive animals respond poorly to this therapy, but they can be cured with oxytocin. It is likely that in the future, these data will help to more effectively treat depression in people.
Today, there is no complete description of all genetic and hormonal factors that influence individual behavior patterns under stress. The only thing that remains for an individual is a constant observation of oneself, an analysis of one’s own behavior and well-being in stressful situations, which will allow one to approximately understand what to expect from oneself in the future. And of course, you need a certain amount of humility and acceptance, the memory of the fact that stress is a very physiological thing, and if it is accompanied by perspiration and fussy senseless activity, then most likely it will always be so. Another question is that each specific situation can be made less stressful - for this it is simply necessary that the brain does not consider it to be completely unexpected and new. Suppose if you have to speak to the board of directors in your office meeting room tomorrow and you are nervous, it will be very useful to scroll your presentation in the same room the day before - then the brain will think: “I saw everything yesterday, well, except that people are new , - perhaps it makes no sense to deploy a strong stress reaction. ” It is much more effective than trying to suppress stress with willpower. Spitting the brain on our willpower, to be honest.

Stress-resistant, easy to learn, purposeful, just love to lie

  1. I love Peter Tchaikovsky ...
    And now on the agenda - the quatrain. This is the most common type of stanza known to everyone from early childhood. This type of poem is popular because of the abundance of rhyming systems. Here we will talk about some of them. (The quatrains of the magnificent poet Igor Irtenev were chosen as examples.) Adjacent - rhyming of adjacent verses: the first with the second, the third with the fourth (Oabb is here
  2. WHY I DO NOT LOVE THE WORD - DIET.
    In recent years, diets have become an integral part of the lifestyle of a large group of people. And this is understandable. People are driven by the desire to lose weight, look better, conform to the type of beauty accepted in our society. At the same time, there comes an awareness of the need to take care of one’s own health, a desire to extend the active years of life, although for some it is just a tribute to fashion. Have you ever,
  3. Should I confess to my spouse, with whom I have been living for twenty-four years, that I no longer love him, but treat him like a brother?
    I think that he also knows about it. Wouldn't it be better for me to leave him so that each of us could cultivate on our own? You are not mistaken, thinking that the husband is aware of what is happening to you, although perhaps he is not fully aware of this. I see that your relationship suffers largely from inability to communicate. I even think that you should share as soon as possible.
  4. Only for mothers
    Moms, be aware that your hormones have changed after the baby was born and during breastfeeding, but your husband’s hormones are not. As a result, fathers do not relate in the same way as you to feeding a child, and their sexual needs remain the same as they were before birth. The two most difficult moments for fathers - fathers lack intimacy with their wives and experience obvious preference for their mother.

    DIKTIOAKULEZ Acute and chronically occurring disease of herbivores (cattle, sheep, horses, etc.) caused by nematodes of the genus Dictyocaulus, parasitizing in the bronchi. Distributed everywhere. The causative agent, dictyocaulus, is a roundworm that develops without intermediate hosts. Parasites D. filaria and D. viviparus filamentous form, whitish. The length of the male - 17-80
  8. THIS BOOK IS ONLY ABOUT THE CURE OF CANCER BY POISONS
    The Austrian healer R. Broys, the American doctor Max Gerson, the domestic authors G. S. Shatalova, N. V. Shevchenko (vegetable oil + vodka), the Japanese healer Katsudzo Nishi and a number of other authors suggested their cancer treatment and cure methods. All these techniques contain quite a lot of errors of the most diverse nature due to the authors' lack of scientific substantiation of their proposals.
  9. What will happen, if only to write a treatise, but no action is taken
    It is very likely that nothing will happen. You wrote a written, but did not begin to play, and the Universe can perceive it as a delayed action. That is, when the hour of X comes, then we will do everything that we have in mind. But it will not come, we will not do it. But it also happens that your intention to change something in your life is so clear and strong that what you want begins to be fulfilled right in the process of writing.
  10. For those who just started porridge, but goes on vacation - about meals on the road
    There are a bunch of instant cereals - all kinds of flakes. I am not a supporter of such flakes, but in case of the road they are, of course, a way out. When you buy, look - the time is indicated on them - choose where one minute is. You can still cook like this: in a thermos with a wide neck, fill up the cereal (preferably crushed or those flakes) and pour boiling water on it, and close tightly for 1 hour (flakes - for 10-15 minutes). So rice and buckwheat
  11. As soon as I want to talk to my spouse, he starts screaming. What should I do?
    I am afraid to be wrong and do not know how to start a conversation so that from the very beginning he would not take an unpleasant turn. If someone is constantly on his guard, this is a sure sign that he feels that he is being accused of something. Check to see if you are hoping in your heart that you will manage to make your husband understand something in order to prove to him that you are right. What is the purpose of your conversation with him? Maybe,
  12. ORAL HORMONAL CONTRACEPTIVES CONTAINING ONLY PROGEDAGEN (PURE PROGESTIC TABLETS OR MINI PIL)
    Pure progestin-only contraceptives are one of the types of hormonal contraception that was created due to the need to eliminate the estrogenic component that causes the majority of metabolic disorders: hypertension and, especially, thromboembolic states. Pure progestin-only contraceptives include: • oral contraceptives containing only progestagen (pure
  13. How to find out if my friend truly, sincerely loves me, or does he have only sexual desire for me?
    You doubt not in vain. One half of your “I”, of course, believes that all men are primarily looking for sex, and as long as you think so, this situation will repeat, even if you change your friend. You are scared at the thought that you will be physically possessed, and this, of course, indicates that there is something wrong with you. The more you think about
  14. Someone told me that breastfeeding prevents pregnancy, but maybe this is all just talk?
    Exceptional breastfeeding reduces the risk of you becoming pregnant. During the first six months, until you have menstruation and while you are fully breastfeeding day and night, you are 98% protected from pregnancy. This is tantamount to protection with other modern contraceptives. From the next section (“How is breastfeeding?”) You learn
  15. I convince myself that I am not leaving my husband just because he is lost without me. Is it not stupid of me?
    Your husband, perhaps, will disappear without you, and you yourself thought about the fact that it will not be easy for you without him? Apparently, he is very dependent on you. It is possible that both of you are interdependent. I can assume that you like to play the role of a mother in your relationship with him. When you are fully aware of your own addiction, sit down and calmly talk to him. Plan this conversation for
  16. Food supply may be unstable and unreliable. How do we feed children older than 6 months who need more than just one breast milk?
    Approximately at the age of 6 months, begin to give the food that you eat. Do not replace breastfeeding; give solid food in addition to the usual breastfeeding scheme. Children older than 6 months can eat almost any food, but their diet should not contain a lot of salt. When you cook, separate a little for the baby before adding salt to the rest.
  17. I am an unmarried woman and I live alone. My older parents often get sick. My mother calls me selfish when I refuse to come to her immediately, as soon as she needs help. Am I responsible for my parents? Do I always have to help them?
    Your heart knows the answer to this question, but your mind challenges it. No child is responsible for the happiness or well-being of their parents. However, some of your part believes that you are responsible for them, and it is quite possible that you yourself consider yourself an egoist. Your parents undoubtedly influenced you, considering that a good grateful daughter is obliged,
  18. In my family, I do everything: home, buying food, children, their upbringing, their education. I do not understand why only I should deal with all this. My husband says that when a woman does everything, it is in the order of things. But then he is responsible for this, isn’t he?
    It depends on the commitments that you made together before the birth of children. Did you discuss the consequences of having children in your family? Who wanted them? Suppose you really wanted to have children, but your husband told you: “I don’t want to have children, but if it’s so important to you, then fine. You can have children, I do not mind, because you will be engaged in them. " If between you was achieved
