How Fear of the Unknown Consumes Your Attention

Unanswered questions create internal tension.

Let’s say you’re just about to walk out the office door, car keys in hand when your boss asks to see you after lunch. You don’t why, and a flood of possibilities infiltrate your mind.

Did you do something wrong?

Now, you’re cycling through recent actions, replaying co-worker discussions, and going over the checklist of job responsibilities to see if you made a mistake or missed something.

Does Your Spouse Prefer to Lease or Buy?

A constant consumer problem exists, especially around the holiday season.

Buying new things conjures momentary happiness, and companies feed on that feeling by further enticing gift searchers with the bait of a sale.

Not only is the product that you want attractively packaged, but it is also now at a lower price than you ever imagined. It’s almost like the cosmos are lining up just so that you can purchase that thing you never knew existed – now you can’t live without it.

The special offer taps into our perpetual fear of missing out. Buy it now, or live with regret forever, or at least that’s how they sell it.

Breaking the Bubble of a New Relationship

When experiences are new, they capture a vibrancy that radiates in a manner that makes you want to keep engaging with them.

It is the inherent beauty of exploring new destinations, finding a style of cuisine you’ve never tried, having a different genre of music click with you, or on a simpler level, buying the shirt that makes you look the way you wish you always do.

How well you know someone and can interpret their actions may be a matter of perspective and circumstance. This is why the dating landscape is often difficult to navigate.

Let’s say that you meet a stranger at a bar, they seem carefree, or is that merely a byproduct of the environment? They’ve had a few drinks, which isn’t a problem because its the weekend, they’re with their friends who endorse them as a good person, all positive signs.

So what’s the problem? There isn’t a visible red flag.

However, the issue is not what you see; it’s what you don’t know.

The beginning of many relationships thrives on the unknown as couples learn more about each other. This period of discovery seems adventurous as you reach benchmarks or stages that if they go off without a hitch propel you forward. Things start off fast and hopefully stay fun as you progress at an organic rate into more serious territory.

Upgrading Communication with Technology?

Our relationship with technology is an interesting case study. In theory, as technology advances, society improves because tasks take less time and effort. That saved free time and energy can go to use on other things.

There are conflicting viewpoints in this regard. The first is that technology is replacing the value and satisfaction of hard work, which makes a solid case. The counterpoint is that things don’t have to be back-breaking or difficult all the time. The idea of work evolves as our society changes. The paste is out of the tube, and there’s no going back, so you might as well brush your teeth.

How does technology affect your relationships?
