GESTALT – Issue 3 | Feb’18 (Total pages: 21)

Hey, thank you for checking out our e-magazine. Here are the interesting reads that you shouldnā€™t miss out in GESTALTĀ  (Volume 1 | Issue 3 | Febā€™18) :

Paw-sitively Cat-holic

For a particular portion of the human population,Ā the Internet (or thatā€™s maybe just Tumblr inĀ particular) probably equates an infinite reservoirĀ of cat related media. Googling ā€œc-a-tā€ and scrollingĀ through the plethora of feline images might just beĀ enough to make a suicidal person feeling warmĀ and fuzzy inside. If that isnā€™t good enough, YouTube and Vines have a stock of videosĀ involving cats cuddling other animals, punchingĀ bigger beasts, fitting themselves into impossiblyĀ small rooms, high on catnip, chasing their own tailsĀ and so on…

Donā€™t Buy Your Girlfriend Flower When You AreĀ Happy

We, as human beings have emotions. We feelĀ happy if someone gave us a gift; we feel sadĀ when we failed our exams; we feel angry ifĀ someone showed disrespect towards us.Ā Emotional reactions usually donā€™t last for a longĀ time and they generally fade away very quickly,Ā but this doesnā€™t stop our emotions from spillingĀ over into our decision-making, and thereforeĀ may play a significant role in influencing ourĀ behavior, especially when it comes to responses
towards a certain event…

Book Review: ā€œCracked: Why Psychiatry is Doing More Harm Than Good?”

Paradigm shift, thatā€™s what this angsty and deconstructionist book succeeds in inducing in me ā€”Ā a big shift in my own personal perspectiveĀ towards one of the most controversial of medicalĀ profession in our contemporary society ā€”
psychiatry.Ā  Throughout the reading process, which takesĀ about three days, there was a constant runningĀ scene of George Carlinā€™s comedy gold that keepsĀ on reliving at the back of my mind…

Scientific Research: Why is it Important?

ā€œStatistics? But I am studying psychology!ā€.Ā Students are often shocked and surprised thatĀ statistics and research method are theĀ compulsory subjects in psychology, becauseĀ many of them just want to know more aboutĀ people or use this knowledge to help others. ThisĀ can be even more frustrating when they areĀ bad at math and presume that psychology doesĀ not involve it…

The Holiday Paradox (Time Perception)

Holidays always end fast. But, once we areĀ back to school or work, we feel that we had aĀ long holiday. Claudia Hammond (2012) coinedĀ this phenomenon as the ā€œHoliday Paradoxā€. But,Ā how can our holidays be short and long at theĀ same time?Ā This contradictory time experience is related toĀ how we judge time. There are two ways weĀ judge time duration: 1) we estimate the timeĀ duration of the event we are experiencingĀ (prospective time estimation) and 2) we
estimate the time duration of the event afterĀ the event has passed (retrospective timeĀ estimation) (Block, & Zakay, 1997)…
