How many friends do you have? Do you you have lots of friends whose company you enjoy? Or do you have a few friends who are very loyal to you. We often don’t even think about what friendship is or how important it is.

Engaging social media

Social media sites like Facebook and LinkedIn have become an important part of people’s lives. The profiles on these sites are like your front garden, they say something about you. LinkedIn is like the office and having a professional looking profile sends out a message to others about your professionalism. Your Facebook Timeline also says a lot about you. You should be careful what you post there.

Psychology | Persuasion, Suggestion and Repetition

Hypnosis

Hypnotherapists use suggestion to influence behaviour and beliefs. The suggestions are subtle and not always direct. They don’t say ‘stop  smoking’, they are more likely to say, ‘You will be better off when you stop smoking.’ The exacting wording is very important. They often infer something rather than being direct. They also realise that we tend to believe what we want to believe and refuse to compromise our morality. People can’t  normally be hypnotised into doing something that they are totally opposed to. They can be easily hypnotised into doing something they want to do but perhaps lack the confidence to do.

The secrets of success

“Be a dreamer; for a dreamer is one who can find his way by moonlight and then see the dawn before the rest of the world.”- Oscar Wilde

I would like to thank Robin and Judy for bringing that quote to my attention. They started following me on Twitter today; I have no idea who they are; but they must be smart! :) (more…)

Neodigital Art: Update One

Impressionism was a 19th-century art movement that began as a loose association of Paris-based artists whose independent exhibitions brought them to prominence in the 1870s and 1880s. The name of the movement is derived from the title of a Claude Monet work, Impression, Sunrise (Impression, soleil levant), which provoked the critic Louis Leroy to coin the term in a satiric review published in Le Charivari.

I wrote my first blog about Neodigital Art, last week and it seems to have captured the imagination of the imaginative. There were many schools of impressionism in the 19th century besides that Parisian one. The reason why the Paris based one was more successful and better known was that simple reference to it by Louis Leroy in his satiric review. I hope my reference to Neodigital Art will have a similar effect but again there are many different schools or styles. (more…)
