Friedrich Nietzsche was a man who suffered a lot in his life and in order to deal with this pain, he embraced the idea of AMOR FATI i.e. THE LOVE OF FATE. Loving your fate means that no matter what life throws at you, you make the best out of it. In his own life, Nietzsche didn't make much money, his books sell dismally, he got rejected twice for his love proposal and his health also started to decline prematurely. This series of events drove him to accept whatever his life gave him and in the case of things that are out of your control, this is the best way to prevent any kind of resentment or regret. So, in this podcast segment we talk more about Nietzsche's philosophy so that you can also apply his ideas into your life and learn how to navigate through tough times.

The concept of "Alpha male" has been around for a while and it has always been a hot topic in the scientific community. Some deny its existence, others insist that Alphas do exist and they are the people who get the "best of everything" by being competent.

Our hierarchies are much more stable and the only way to climb to the top and stay there is to have adaptive skills or abilities. This, in turn, gives you the clichéd image of a healthy, confident, assertive and high-ranking male i.e THE ALPHA.

Color Psychology tells us how different colors can affect our mood in a positive or negative manner. This is mostly due to our associations of colors with everyday objects. A rule of thumb is to think about where does a certain color occurs in nature, what cultural significance does it hold and what is our natural reaction to that. For example: white color is often seen as a symbol of purity and cleanliness, it is also the color that, in some cultures, people wear on funerals. This makes white good, but only in moderation, any more than that conveys the message of sterility, impotence, sadness, and similar dull emotional states.

Joker is one of the most popular and iconic super-villains in not only the DC universe but in the fantasy genre in general.
The Joker is portrayed as a criminal mastermind who is nihilistic and has a sadistic sense of humor. In the comics, Joker sometimes works with other villains of Gotham city but these relationships don't last long due to Joker's insatiable desire for creating chaos. His main aim throughout all comics and movies has been to make other people realize that deep down they are as evil as him and all they need is just a little push.
With his manipulation, Joker turned his psychiatrist Harleen Frances Quinzel into Harley Quinn, made Commissioner Gordon go crazy and led Harvey Dent to believe that being nice in this cruel world isn't worth it.
Joker represents a part of us that is so primordial but can be accessed at any time when needed. This subconscious relatability with the character makes it really interesting to have a deep psychological analysis and understand why he is the way he is.
In the Jungian Psychological model, Archetypes are defined as universal patterns and images that are part of the collective unconscious.
Carl Jung believed that these archetypes are primordial images of a role or a person that the psychic counterpart of our instincts. This is why, archetypes are often incarnated as characters in mythology, novels, fairy tales, and movies.
In this podcast, I discuss what are the archetypes, how can we identify them in ourselves or others, examples of archetypes in movies/celebrities, why should we work on archetypes and how should we work on archetypes? Find us on Youtube: www.youtube.com/psychologyinhindi
Ugliness is defined as being aesthetically unattractive but in the evolutionary context, a physical anomaly has always been seen as a sign of a parasite/fungal infection or some other disease because almost all diseases have the ability to deform one's appearance, hence making them look sick or UGLY.

In this podcast, I discussed ways through which anyone can stop feeling ugly and get over their insecurities.
Attachment theory in Psychology comes from the work of British Psychologist John Bowlby in the 1950s, who, at that time he was working as a Psychiatrist in child guidance. His experience led him to some observations that showed how a child's relationship with their mother/caregiver influences it's cognitive, social and behavioral development.
In this podcast, I discussed the 4 types of Attachment styles in Bowlby's theory and how we can (and we must) get over our insecurities that were created in our childhood.
Eating disorders are defined as mental disorders that involve abnormal eating habits that negatively affect one's physical and mental health. Some of the most common types of eating disorders are Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder and Restrictive food intake disorder.
Eating disorders can be triggered by psychological trauma, rejection or ridicule due to appearance or even due to one's personality.
Although they can be hard to treat, like every 1 in 3 recovered anorexics relapse but fortunately, there are many treatments available that can create a significant change in the life of a person dealing with ED.
Body Dysmorphic Disorder is a mental disorder where an individual has the obsessive idea that some aspect of one's own body part or appearance is severely flawed and therefore goes through exceptional measures to hide or fix that body part.
About 2.4% of the population suffers from BDD, yet most of the time, it remains undiagnosed and sometimes, it gets misinterpreted as Major Depressive Disorder, an Eating disorder or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. BDD is somewhat similar to OCD but of course, one shouldn't be confused with the other.
In India, the most common type of Body Dysmorphic Disorder among men is Muscle Dysmorphia or as the bodybuilders call it "Bigorexia". However, among women, it is mostly a certain body part or just overall appearance that they think is flawed.
Déjà vu, literally meaning "already seen", is the feeling that one has lived through the present situation before. Some people view this feeling as a paranormal or spiritual phenomenon but modern science has some theories of its own.
Evolution can explain why do we do certain things not others, why do we behave in a certain way or even why do we like the things we like, but when we put the evolutionary lens on depression, things get confusing real quick; because why would natural selection keep a behavior that can reduce fertility and increase chances of suicide? This goes against everything that we learned in the biology class.

Almost 45% of the total cases of depression are caused by the individual's diet, which is why a dietary approach for treating depression makes total sense. This connection exists majorly due to our gut-brain axis and inflammation caused by stress, injury, disease or junk food.
This is 2 of 3 audio clips from the new series on depression. In this video, I discussed the role of diet in regulating our mood and overall emotional state.

Watching motivational videos while sitting on your ass and doing nothing has become the new addiction. Most of us pump ourselves up and tell ourselves that we're gonna change; we're gonna get fit, study hard or start a new business that we always wanted. But the only problem with this anticipatory dopamine response is that - IT WEARS OFF & WE QUIT.
We slow down as quickly as we catch the speed. A big reason for this vicious cycle is our lack of self-awareness. We are not putting ourselves in the position to succeed by biting more than we can chew. It all feels fun and rainbows when you're an introvert and you get a sales job, but the new job becomes dreadful as soon as you approach a person. IT'S THE LACK OF SELF-AWARENESS.
This is why the best and most practical way of motivating yourself is to aim for the things you care about and things that can actually bring out the parts in you, you didn't know existed before and doing all this while doubling down on your strengths.
Just a decade ago, it was almost impossible for an average joe to get known and recognized but now with the advent of the internet, just anyone can get famous by tomorrow *literally*. The cost of entry has never been this low and not surprisingly, every week we see a new meme or video that manages to gain millions of views and clicks but the real question is "WHAT MAKES SOMETHING GO VIRAL"? It is the content itself? or timing? or perhaps how that particular content makes a viewer feel?
Listen to the entire podcast segment to learn the 4 factors that can make anything go viral.
Usually, we see fear as a negative emotion which shouldn't last any longer than it is supposed to, which is true. But when it comes to horror movies, most of us can't seem to get tired of them even when they're so scary. This puts curious folks like you and me into questioning the psychology of horror movies and why do we watch them.
The answer is not simple, but there are some theories and studies to give us an idea of what's going on.
India is placed at 140th position in the World Happiness Report 2019 and according to WHO, India is the most depressed country in the world. But why? What is pushing India towards the gloom and how can we bounce back?
I covered the most prominent factors that are really messing with our heads like use of social media, lack of sunlight exposure, junk food, nutrient deficiencies, stigma, lack of awareness and basically not doing everything that the nature intended us to do.
What we are witnessing is a mental health epidemic and this is the time when we switch the gears and bring our mind/body/soul back to it's natural condition.
In this podcast I went over describing the signalling theories like the Fisherian runaway hypothesis and the Handicap principle (Zahavian signalling) with examples that explains behaviors like conspicuous consumption, buying expensive gifts and more.
Some of us swear a lot, some use the bad words occasionally and some try to avoid swearing all together but what is so satisfying and at the same time, taboo about swearing? What is the psychology of swearing?
In this video I put forward a brief history of major Hindi swear words, impacts of cussing on the brain and types of swearing all of which will give you a better understanding of this notorious dimension of language.
In this podcast you'll learn about the psychology behind tattoos and Indian tattoo making, which may answer few questions like why do we get tattoos, meaning of tattoos, it's evolutionary significance, stigma attached to it, if it makes you a badass and dumbass, why youngsters are more inclined towards getting inked and more.
Without doubt, love is one of the strongest emotions that one organism can experience. We live for love, we fight for love, we cry for love and we die for love. But have you ever wondered, what causes us to love someone rather than someone else?
In this video, I explored just that. I covered Helen Fisher's model of love which may answer questions like "why do we fall in love", "do we fall in love with people similar to us or opposite of us", "why do we lust for one and then get attached with others", "what makes love last" and "what is the psychology of love"?
There comes a point in the lives of each one of us when even the word "time" makes us anxious. Generally this is due to a perception that time is moving so fast and it is only getting faster as you grow older. This feeling is called "Zenosyne" and in this video, I discussed the potential reasons for why we may feel that way and how to slow down the perception of time.
Music is the language that people from all regions of the globe can understand and enjoy. It doesn't matter if it is a random rhythm that we have never heard before or our favourite song, our brain reacts to both in a similar way. By having the understanding of psychology of music we can heal ourselves with the therapeutic power of these different frequencies and life a healthier and happier life.
You must have heard this in a movie or a book, "the ultimate goal of life is happiness". But how true is this saying?
Should we make one of many emotions our north star?
In this video I solved this query by explaining the difference between conditional and unconditional happiness, indulging in a thought experiment where we consider the outcomes of being happy regardless of circumstance and discussing the concept of The Hero's Journey.
We spend most of our lives working to acquire resources which are supposed to make our lives better but what is the point of a having a career that doesn't even resonate with your true self? It's not only about listening to your heart but also to understand yourself and what your strengths and weaknesses are.
By knowing where you stand on personality scale, you can allow yourself to grow by tweaking your path and hence, where you'll end up. Also, only by self-awareness you can truly make a difference in this world.
Neuroticism is the personality trait that predicts one's tendency to feel negative emotions. Females are known to score higher in this trait but males can be neurotic too.
People who are high in Neuroticism are known to feel negative thinking out past, present and even future, they are prone to depression and they can have really self-esteem, making them highly self-conscious.
Out of all 5 personality traits, Agreeableness is the one that can be the most confusing as it can easily be mixed with Extraversion or Neuroticism. But what separates it from the other dimensions is its power to make a person blind to his/her own needs. Females are more agreeable by nature as compared to men, as it is necessary a woman to be highly compassionate when she gives birth to a little human being who is really vulnerable and incapable of saving itself.
However, really high levels of this trait can make a person a pushover who is always being cheated and run over by others (disagreeable people).
Extraversion, as the name suggests, is the measure of gregariousness of an individual. These are the type of people who are outgoing and always up to socialize. The two sub-components that make up this trait are Enthusiasm & Assertiveness. Find us on Youtube: www.youtube.com/psychologyinhindi
Conscientiousness is the personality trait that is concerned with self-discipline, hard-work, aim for achievement and it is a positive predictor of life success. People who are high in this trait tend to lean more towards conservative political views, positive religious/spiritual beliefs and stable occupations. They follow the rules but you can't have much fun with them because they will judge you and notice every detail. These are the same people with whom you can't even eat or sit comfortably.'
Hyper-conscientiousness can make a person compulsive and a perfectionist but having a decent score in this trait keeps you stable and satisfied. Find us on Youtube: www.youtube.com/psychologyinhindi
Openness to Experience is the creativity dimension of the Big 5 Personality traits. It's two sub-components are Intellect (interest in ideas) and Openness (creativity, imagination). This is the trait where the most intellectually curious, creative, artistic and imaginative of us fall into. So, we are talking about painters, writers, musicians and some of the most creative people (not all) from the fields of science, philosophy and movies.
Open people are those who teach us to see, feel and be sensitive to aesthetic work. They are the people who save the organisation in the ever changing market. But they are rare, odd and usually low in conscientiousness. In the video, I even discussed why there is a link between being creativity and insanity.

This podcast is an introduction to the Big 5 Personality trait model, that is used by the most psychologists and behavioral experts in personality surveys to understand and predict an individual's future decisions or actions.
The Five factor model Or OCEAN model is based on the foundation of Lexical hypothesis, which suggests that the individual differences that are most salient and socially relevant in people’s lives become encoded into their language. So, by using language as a resource and a sample a full spectrum and taxonomy of personality traits can be assembled. Find us on Youtube: www.youtube.com/psychologyinhindi
Endless mind chatter is one of the things we have to deal with as highly evolved monkeys. Overthinking can not only sabotage our creativity but it can also degrade our health and give birth to numerous health problems.
Symptoms of overthinking can range from insomnia and headaches to fearful thinking and fatigue. These negative and fearful thoughts can decrease the quality of your life which is why it is wise to not fight or give anymore attention to this behavior and instead you should try to unlearn it.

Boredom, as we know it, doesn't seem to appeal very much. This is because of the unpleasant feelings attached with being bored. These days we don't even get that bored and if we do, we have millions of videos, memes, songs right at our finger tips to bring us out of this unpleasant state. But upon learning the evolutionary purpose of boredom, you'll be able to appreciate it and finally take a break from everything that prevents you from getting bored.
