Zdravo svima,
  ovde ću postavljati odabrane tekstove i delove članaka sa sajta Dailygood.org. Izvinjavam se unapred što će izbor svakako biti pristrasan, nadam se da će još kome biti nešto od ovoga korisno ili zanimljivo.  :kafa:
Kako nam izazivanje osećaja strahopoštovanja (kako grozna reč, poštovanje izazvano strahom?) odnosno osećanja čuđenja i divljenja nečemu, može pomoći da budemo manje egocentrični. U ovom slučaju, radi se o izazivanju tog osećaja kod dece kako bi bila manje fokusirana na sebe i pojmila veličinu sveta oko njih.

When we see a grand vista in nature such as Victoria Falls, or experience an inspiring work of art such as Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” or Michelangelo’s Pieta, or ponder the phenomenal inner strength of a great soul like Gandhi who non-violently led India to independence, we often feel two things:
 1) a sense of vastness that gives us
 2) a new perspective on the world and our place in it.
This is awe.
Dacher’s lab has found that awe makes us feel very small and like we’re in the presence of something greater than ourselves. We also may lose awareness of our “self” and feel more connected to the world around us.
Imagine the potential of this life-changing emotion for students—and, in particular, for our hyper-self-focused teens! Since adolescence is a crucial period for identity-formation, some researchers have suggested that adolescence is a particularly important time to experience awe—it could help them see themselves as deeply connected to the world around them, not the center of it. Inducing the uplifting experience of awe could also be a positive way to keep narcissism in check.
While scientists haven’t yet examined if this temporary loss of self-focus directly impacts empathy levels, they do know that awe makes people feel less impatient and more inclined to volunteer their time to help others—strong evidence that it makes them feel more connected and committed to something bigger than themselves.

Bas lep i praktican tekst za one koji se bave odgajanjem dece  :ok

Ono sto mi je takodje zanimljivo u njemu i sto me ujedno rastuzuje je istrazivanje nivoa empatije kod studenata. Ispitivano ih je 14.000 izmedju 1979. i 2009. i to istrazivanje je pokazalo da taj nivo stalno opada. Narocito je taj trend vidljiv posle 2000. godine. Ne znam sta bi bio razlog za takav trend, ali u svakom slucaju to nije dobro :(

Ovde se mogu naći linkovi na nekoliko istraživanja o empatiji i o tome šta pomaže da se ona razvije
http://www.dailygood.org/story/625/what-is-empathy-http-greatergood-berkeley-edu/

Evo da navedem odlomak iz jednog od njih koje mi je bilo baš zanimljivo:
"Regardless of their actual Socio-Economic Status, people temporarily made to feel lower class were better able to discern others’ emotions; people temporarily made to feel upper class showed worse empathic accuracy.
This suggests that there’s something about the experience of high status that impedes our ability to connect with others emotionally. But it also provides hope that, with proper encouragement, even upper class people can become more sensitive to others’ emotions.
“What our research is suggesting is that upper class people don’t have a lower capacity for empathy,” says Kraus. “They just pay less attention. And if you can put them in a situation where you get them to pay more attention, you can get some real empathy from people who are wealthy and affluent.”

Pre par godina sam čitao o jednom istraživanju koje je zadivljujuće jednostavno, a rezultati su bili šokantni. Istraživački tim je postavio kamere na pešački prelaz, i beležio koji automobili nisu stali da propuste pešake. Ispostavilo se, što bi se reklo crno-na-belo, da vozači skupljih automobila su imali manje obzira prema pešacima. A ovo istraživanje je inače izvedeno u Americi, gde je kultura lepog ponašanja u saobraćaju izrazito visoka! Zaključak je, naravno, da naša percepcija o sopstvenom visokom statusu nagriza našu sposobnost da saosećamo sa drugima.

Sati:
Sujeta je jedna od nečistoća uma, koja čini da imamo pogrešno, umesto ispravnog razumevanja i viđenja stvari. Zaslepljuje nas da od sopstvene zamišljene veličine bukvalno ne vidimo druge ili ih vidimo tek kao nužno zlo :(

Evo još jednog dobrog članka - o malim lažima i prevarama.

Pet pravila ponašanja (Five precepts) su jasno izložena. Opet, naš mozak je u stanju da ih vrlo često racionalizuje, i interpretira (tj. iskrivi) tako da radimo samo za naše trenutno kratkoročno blagostanje. To nam je pogotovu lako ukoliko smo u okruženju gde i svi ostali to rade.

"Codes of conduct are incredibly important for companies. But companies are wrong in how flexible they make these codes of conduct. When you have a serious code, it is easier to see if you are on the right or wrong side of it. When you have something that is very fuzzy, it is hard for us to see that we are violating it. Think about something like Alcoholics Anonymous. The rule is very clear. No drinking whatsoever. What would happen if the rule was half a glass a day? We would get very big glasses. You would drink today on account of tomorrow. There will be all kinds of tradeoffs. In general, we do not like very clear-cut rules because we understand the exceptions. We understand that we cannot create a good rule. But good rules really help us. They help us to figure out for ourselves what is good. Dieting, by the way, is the same thing. If you have a clear rule about what you eat and do not eat, it is really easy…."
