Even to this day I enjoy watching fireworks and lighting them off. For some people it is their job to play with fire, and for others it is an impulsive desire they cannot deny. These people have a problem with the inability to control impulses to set fires. They will do anything to see a fire, be part of a fire, they simply like fire. Firefighters and psychologist label these people to suffer from pyromania. Each year people bec

    Analysis Of Queen Mab In Romeo And Juiet

    Analysis of the Queen Mab Speech from Romeo and Juliet “O, then I see Queen Mab hath been with you.” This powerful statement is the beginning to one of the most historic and significant poems in Shakespearean history, Mercutio’s famous Queen Mab speech. Various reasons can be given as to why Shakespeare would place such a lengthy poem in Romeo and Juliet. This “talk of dreams” is essential to the play as it develops theme, foreshadows the story, and ultimately alters the entire pace of the play. Also, Shakespeare uses many literary devices to make this poem one the reader will remember thr

    Discuss one theoretical explanation of behaviour from the cognitive perspective: The cognitive perspective is focusing on the human mind, the internal mental processes such as thinking, problem solving, creativity, memory, language and perception. Cognitive psychologists are interested in how the human mind is processing these mental processes and on determining the role that mental processes play in affecting emotions and behavior.

    Emotional ADD Recently I have begun work on a condition I have been calling “Emotional ADD”. In people with emotional ADD there is not always a clear framework of seeing actual difficulties when it comes to concentrating on study or work or reading. It mainly has to do with a loss of any center of passion and even of any sense of entitlement to passion. Most glaring is the tendency to feel like the loser in almost any argument which involves a battle of wits or a difference of point of view. In fact the person with emotional ADD may have a strong inkling of what is right in a particular

    Today, many people are helped by drugs designed to help depression, anxiety and more serious mental illnesses such as bi-polar disorder. With everything our society knows about how well these drugs seem to work, it is preposterous that at one time in history an invasive surgery such as the lobotomy would be just as comparably popular. Lobotomy was designed to sever the nerves that lead from the rest of the brain to the prefrontal lobe. The prefrontal lobe is concerned with emotion, memory, learning and social behavior. So it is no surprise that when nerves that lead to this portion of y
