awareness of own mortality. Ease fear of death by world view through ideologies (that outlive the individual)
- thus strengthens your world view, ideology
- immigration attacks existence and place in history ("we will not erase us")
- Trump exaggerating threats, heightens fear, and existencial threat (and felt place in history) thus strengthens grip onto ideology and world view 'I will not erased.'
- Donald Trumps communication is more engaging.
- Conservatives are more hyper-vigilant (tuned in to threats)

What the Hell Happened to Personal Style?
Where a 14-year-old Kate Moss put in her time on Portobello Road with Corinne Day, learning to thrift, self-style, and create her own ambling glamour, the young fashion plates of today have outsourced the development of their style to professionals. And those employed to keep the young and stylish considered that way don’t dare take any real risks, for fear of sartorial missteps, bad tabloid titles (and the online equivalent), or a mention on a worst-dressed list. [...] We are so inundated by these images from paparazzi, from media, from the stars themselves, that we cease to see any meaning behind any of it. Which would be fine (their funeral, as the saying goes), except it’s a very costly absence of meaning, both societally and economically.

Psychologie: Stärken der Introvertierten - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Ein gutes Drittel der Bevölkerung gilt als introvertiert, doch unseren Alltag bestimmen vor allem die Lauten. Zu Unrecht, sagen Psychologen und Ökonomen. Denn die Stärken der Stillen sind für die Gesellschaft unverzichtbar. [...] Tatsächlich aber hat sich in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten ein großer kultureller Vorbehalt gegen die Leisen entwickelt. Vor allem in der Wirtschaft wird das Ideal des extrovertierten Menschen gefördert. Die New Yorker Anwältin Cain hat das selbst erlebt. "Sorgfalt, Analyse, Konzentration - das sind die Stärken der Stillen", sagt sie. "Warum geben wir ihnen trotzdem immer wieder das Gefühl, nicht gut genug zu sein?" [...] Im Gehirn vieler introvertierter Probanden wurde dabei eine höhere elektrische Aktivität nachgewiesen, egal ob sie arbeiteten oder sich ausruhten. [...] Um sich wohl zu fühlen, um neue Kraft zu schöpfen, brauchen Introvertierte Ruhe. [...] Dass das Ideal der Extroversion schlecht fürs Geschäft sein kann, hat kürzlich [] Adam Grant nachgewiesen.

Narzissmuss: Ursprung liegt oft in der Kindheit - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Wir haben eine narzisstische Gesellschaftsstruktur, die diese Fähigkeiten quasi verlangt. SPIEGEL ONLINE: Befördert unsere Leistungsgesellschaft Narzissmus? Oder haben Narzissten einfach mehr Erfolg in diesem System? Wardetzki: Sowohl als auch. [...] SPIEGEL ONLINE: Gibt es Unterschiede zwischen den Geschlechtern? Wardetzki: Ja, das hat kulturelle Wurzeln. Der männliche Narzisst ist eher von der grandiosen, machtbetonten Form. Die Narzisstin definiert sich mehr über Leistung, Perfektionismus, Attraktivität und Anpassung. Sie ist ein menschliches Chamäleon. Sie kommt in einen Raum, spürt genau, was gerade angesagt ist und kann sich perfekt in die Situation einfügen. --->>> see last thing about having a narcissistic superior.

BBC News - Mental health charities warn cuts 'put lives at risk'
Six mental health organisations in England are warning that NHS cuts are putting lives at risk. It comes as figures reveal that early intervention schemes to help young mental health patients have been reduced over the past 12 months. Mental health trusts are being asked to save almost 20% more from next year's budgets than hospitals. NHS England says it has put procedures in place to ensure mental and physical health are treated equally in future.

Limbic Revision: How Love Rewires the Brain | Brain Pickings
In a relationship, one mind revises the other; one heart changes its partner. This astounding legacy of our combined status as mammals and neural beings is limbic revision: the power to remodel the emotional parts of the people we love, as our Attractors [coteries of ingrained information patterns] activate certain limbic pathways, and the brain’s inexorable memory mechanism reinforces them. Who we are and who we become depends, in part, on whom we love. [...] Real, honest, complete love requires letting go.

What Lance Armstrong Wants From Oprah Winfrey -
A few years ago I was at a dinner with a star pro cyclist—a guy who still races, and has won multiple Tour de France stages—and he spoke with slack-jawed awe about Armstrong's life. Not the bike racing part. The private jet part. The audiences with world leaders. The celebrity girlfriends. This bike racer was young and rich and in his prime and yet to him, Armstrong just kicked it on a completely different, interplanetary level. He didn't talk about Lance Armstrong like Lance Armstrong was a cyclist. He talked about Lance Armstrong like Lance Armstrong was Beyoncé.

That superhuman status set Armstrong up for the hardest kind of fall, and he has plummeted back to earth. Even though he rejected the doping allegations brought by USADA, he lost control of his narrative, and now there is only the thinnest of sympathy. Fame is being pushed aside by infamy. He has been humbled and humiliated and sponsors have left and his name has been stripped from his charity foundation. He is still a relatively young man, and it is said that he still wishes to compete, in important triathlons, but now he is banned from the best ones. There's something haunting and almost poetic about that. All that stamina, and nowhere to put it.


As the ESPN writer Don Van Natta Jr. posted on Twitter, "You don't go on Oprah to confess. You go on Oprah to be forgiven." [...] It's about trying to clear a road ahead.

Christian Wulff sucht seine neue Rolle nach Trennung von Bettina Wulff - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Ehe-Aus per Exklusivbericht

Die Trennung der Wulffs wirkt von außen gesehen wie ein logischer Schlusspunkt, der sich schon länger angekündigt hatte. Bettina Wulff selbst distanzierte sich in ihrem Buch "Jenseits des Protokolls", das im September vergangenen Jahres herauskam, von ihrem Ehemann, beklagte die starke Belastung durch Öffentlichkeit und Amt - und plauderte intime Details aus.
Es waren Sätze, die kein Ehemann dieser Welt gerne über sich liest. Schon auf der ersten Seite des Kapitels "Männer" steht folgende Passage: "Was findet eine Frau an diesem Mann? Irgendwie fehlen da ein paar Ecken und Kanten, etwas Besonderes und Eigenes."

You Can't See It, But You'll Be A Different Person In 10 Years : Shots - Health News : NPR
[A]ccording to fresh research that suggests that people generally fail to appreciate how much their personality and values will change in the years ahead — even though they recognize that they have changed in the past.

"The problem with that is, it takes 10 years,"

[...] "Life is a process of growing and changing, and what our results suggest is that growth and change really never stops," says Gilbert, "despite the fact that at every age from 18 to 68, we think it's pretty much come to a close."

Personality changes do take place faster when people are younger, says Gilbert, so "a person who says I've changed more in the past decade than I expect to change in the future is not wrong."
