Do same-sex couples resolve conflicts in a healthier way?

A 12-year long study by the Gottman Institute examines the differences between how same-sex couples and different-sex couples resolve conflicts. Overall, the relationship satisfaction and quality were about the same across all couple types (gay, straight, lesbian). However, the study did find some differences in how same-sex and different-sex couples argue, including using humor to diffuse tense situations, not taking things so personally during an argument, and offering encouragement rather tha...

Six-month-olds recognize (and like) when they’re being imitated

Scientists speculate imitation helps develop social cognition in babies. A new study out of Lund University shows that six-month-olds look and smile more at imitating adults. Researchers hope the data will spur future studies to discover what role caregiver imitation plays in social cognition development. The human mind is one of evolution's marvels, and it's never more marvelous than in our youth. In our first few years of life, our brains create more than a million new neural connections per ...

Learn a new language—super fast. Here’s how.

Canadian polyglot Steve Kaufmann says there is indeed a fast track to learning a new language. It involves doubling down on your listening and reading.By taking the focus off grammar rules that are difficult to understand and even more difficult to remember, you can instead develop habits by greater exposure to the language. Kaufmann likens the learning process to a hockey stick. In the beginning you make major progress as you climb the steep hill of the hockey stick, whereas the long shaft of t...

Subtle Signs of Unconscious Bias

When I talked to a gender-bias researcher at a prestigious U.S. university off the record, she informed me that I should not take my success for granted. Based on the researcher’s experience, being a short woman in Corporate America requires that I'm twice as smart, twice as competent and twice as hardworking as a tall white man. It's not like people readily believe that tall white men naturally make better leaders. But that's the thing about unconscious bias—it's an automatic at...

Not All Interruptions are Created Equal

Interruptions. They are the adult version of a kid snatching a toy away from someone else. And yet it continues to happen. People steal conversational turns. All the time. Communication expert Deborah Tannen begins her chapter called Turn-Taking and Intercultural Discourse and Communication like this: “When people engage in conversation, they take turns speaking. This seems at first a self-evidently simple matter: one talks, then another talks, then another. But how do speakers know when their t...

How to shut down coronavirus conspiracy theories

During times of high anxiety, not unlike the situation we find ourselves in now, there is a rise in conspiracism. Conspiracy theories provide comfort where there is uncertainty.As author Michael Shermer points out, history has shown that this way of thinking is sometimes warranted, but not in the case of coronavirus. One factor that has helped recent coronavirus conspiracy theories grow, he says, is the shrinking political middle and an increased polarization to the far left and far right."The f...

How Different Generations Communicate (And What That Means For Your Business)

by Eric Schurke, VP Operations at VoiceNation As companies increasingly switch to telecommuting, workers are adapting in different ways. One of the most notable schisms in the way employees handle this change is generational: Millennials and Generation Z are more comfortable with text and video chat than their Generation X and baby boomer peers. While this generational gap in communication may be obvious to some, the facts are borne out in the data. Over 93% of millennials own smartphones, bols...

Why demonizing Trump supporters destroys democracy

When you have pre-conceived ideas about a group whose views oppose your own, you risk closing the door to meaningful discourse before it begins."When you demonize those who voted against you then there's no chance of a democratic debate," argues Yanis Varoufakis, former finance minister of Greece and founder of DiEM25. "You've lost it completely. Then you go into a state of civil war."Varoufakis says that there are two ways of approaching a difference of opinion: external and internal critiques....

We have two main memory systems that influence learning: declarative memory, which consists of facts that can be consciously recalled, and procedural memory, which consists of different "procedures" we learn that are more instinctual to recall.Young children are able to access their procedural memory systems without the distraction of a declarative memory system. That means they can pick up grammar and language faster. There are many ways you can make it easier to learn a second or third languag...
