15 Styles of Distorted Thinking

15 Styles of Distorted Thinking

  • Filtering: You take the negative details and magnify them while filtering out all positive aspects of a situation.
  • Polarized Thinking: Things are black or white, good or bad. You have to be perfect or you're a failure. There is no middle ground.
  • Overgeneralization: You come to a general conclusion based on a single incident or piece of evidence. If something bad happens once you expect it to happen over and over again.
  • Mind Reading:  Without their saying so, you know what people are feeling and why they act the way they do. In particular, you are able to divine how people are feeling toward you.
  • Castastrophizing: You expect disaster. you notice or hear about a problem and start "what if's". What if tragedy strikes? What if it happens to you?"
  • Personalization: Thinking that everything people do or say is some kind of reaction to you. You also compare yourself to others, trying to determine who's smarter, better looking, etc.
  • Control Fallacies: If you feel externally controlled, you see yourself as helpless, a victim of fate. The fallacy of internal control has you responsible for the pain and happiness of everyone around you.
  • Fallacy of Fairness: You feel resentful because you think you know what's fair but other people won't agree with you.
  • Blaming: You hold other people responsible for your pain, or take the other tack and blame yourself for every problem or reversal.
  • Should: You have a list of ironclad rules about how you and other people should act. People who break the rules anger you and you feel guilty if you violate the rules.
  • Emotional Reasoning: You believe that what you feel must be true-automatically. If you feel stupid and boring, then you must be stupid and boring.
  • Fallacy of Change: You expect that other people will change to suit you if you just pressure or cajole them enough. You need to change people because your hope for happiness seem to depend entirely on them.
  • Global Labeling: You generalize one or two qualities into a negative global judgment.
  • Being Right: You are continually on trial to prove that your opinions and actions are correct. Being wrong is unthinkable and you will go to any length to demonstrate your rightness.
  • Heaven's Reward Fallacy: You expect all your sacrifice and self-denial to pay off, as if there were someone keeping score. You feel better when the reward doesn't come
Checklist for Hidden Anger
  • Procrastination in the completion of imposed tasks.
  • Perpetual or habitual lateness.
  • A liking for sadistic or ironic humor.
  • Sarcasm, cynicism or flippancy in conversation.
  • Frequent sighing.
  • over politeness, constant cheerfulness, attitude of "grin and bear it".
  • Smiling while hurting.
  • Frequent disturbing or frightening dreams.
  • Over-controlled monotone speaking voice
  • Difficulty in getting to sleep or sleeping through the night.
  • Boredom, apathy, loss of interest in things you are usually enthusiastic about.
  • Slowing down of movements.
  • Getting tired more easily than usual.
  • Excessive irritability over trifles.
  • Getting drowsy at inappropriate times.
  • Sleeping more than usual / maybe 12 to 14 hours a day.
  • Waking up tired rather than rested or refreshed.
  • Clenched jaws or grinding of the teeth / especially while sleeping.
  • Facial tics, spasmodic foot movements, habitual fist clenching and similar repeated physical acts done unintentionally or unaware.
  • Chronically stiff or sore neck or shoulder muscles.
  • Chronic depression... extended periods of feeling down for no reason.
  • Stomach ulcers.

Female habits that drive men crazy

Female habits that drive men crazy

Being comfortable with your other half is wonderful, however, you might have unconsciously picked up some habits along the way that turn him off. Here are the top 10 traits we think you should steer clear of.

10: Over-analysing everything
Let’s face it, men really aren’t that complicated. So if a guy says, ‘I’m a bit busy right now. Can I ring you later?’ chances are, work’s really quite hectic. One kiss in his texts instead of the usual two doesn’t mean he’s gone off you, and a surprise cup of tea doesn’t mean he’s feeling guilty. So give men the benefit of the doubt, take things at face value and you’ll save yourself a heap of stress.

Coins in Tirupati temple traced back to pre-Christian era

Members of a numismatic scholars' committee have found that some of the earliest coins in the collection belonged to the Satavahana period and pre-Christian era.

CHENNAI: Members of a numismatic scholars' committee, formed to segregate the huge collection of coins in the famous Tirupati Tirumala temple, have found that some of the earliest coins in the collection belonged to the Satavahana period and pre-Christian era.

The panel, which included 20 numismatic scholars from the south, has segregated more than 36 tonnes of coins from the total 48 tonnes in three sessions.

People are bereft of gratitude, which is not right. One should be grateful for the help they have received from others as long as one is alive. There are two things you must forget: the help you have rendered to others and the harm others have done to you. If you remember the help you have rendered, you will always expect something in return. Remembrance of the harm done to you by others generates in you a sense of revenge. You should remember only the help you received from others. The one with these sacred qualities is an ideal human being. Love is God, love is Nature, love is life and love is the true human value. Bereft of love, one is equivalent to a corpse. Love even the worst of your enemies. Lead a life filled with love. Then you will experience joy, peace and security in your heart.

What gives a man or woman the right to lead?
What gives a man or woman the right to lead?
It certainly isn’t gained by election or appointment. Having position, title, rank, or degrees doesn’t qualify anyone to lead other people. And the ability doesn’t come automatically from age or experience, either.
No, it would be accurate to say that no one can be given the right to lead. The right to lead can only be earned. And that takes time.
The key to becoming an effective leader is not to focus on making other people follow, but on making yourself the kind of person they want to follow. You must become someone others can trust to take them where they want to go.

50 New Cars for 2012

50 New Cars for 2012

Don't buy your next car before you've had a look at annual new car list.

‘What’s when?’ is the most common question asked us at Autocar India. We get a huge number of mails everyday from readers wanting to know what’s coming in the near and not-too-distant future, and that’s understandable. In our ever-changing market, you really need to be on top of model upgrades and new car launches, especially if you are about to sign a considerable amount of your savings on an all-new car.
The last thing you want is to see a new and superior model out on the roads, soon after you’ve spent your hard-earned money on a car that could be quickly outdated. So, to keep you in the know, straight from our confidential files, an almost complete list of new cars manufacturers are planning to put on sale in India this year.
Tata Safari Storme
It may be long in the tooth now but Tata Motors hasn’t given up on the Safari just yet. The big Tata is to receive a major update in early 2012. Styling changes are focused largely on the front and include striking new L-shaped headlights and a more pronounced front bumper. Interior quality should be similar to the more expensive Tata Aria and equipment levels could be enhanced as well. The biggest change though will be under the skin with the new Safari set to adopt Tata’s new X2 platform that debuted on the Aria. Shortened to the Safari’s 2650mm wheelbase, the X2 will change the way the Safari drives and ride, handling and noise insulation should see a marked improvement. The 140bhp 2.2 DiCOR diesel engine will power the new model but will be substantially worked on to improve refinement. Expect the updated Safari to bear a price tag of around Rs 11 lakh.

Difference Between Single Malt and Blended Scotch Whisky

What Differentiates Single Malt from Blended Scotch
Not every whiskey is called Scotch; the name itself suggests that it is region-specific. You can make whiskey the world over, but you can never call it Scotch, unless it is made in Scotland. The basic difference between a single malt and blended Scotch is the distillation process. Single malt whisky is produced and bottled in a single distillery, whereas blended, as the name suggests, is a blend of two or more malt and grain whiskies. Let's dig into the details that follow.
The Making of Scotch: The basic ingredient of Scotch whisky happens to be malted barley. Though at times it can be prepared using rye or wheat, barley is the most preferred grain for producing Scotch. Other than barley, the other ingredients include water, yeast and an additive for coloring.
Before we get to the differences, a little insight into the actual process of producing Scotch would be helpful. So here goes ...
The Process
The process of making Scotch whisky involves the following steps: malting, drying, mashing and fermenting, which is followed by distillation and finally, maturation.
Malting: This is the process of soaking the grains in water for 2 or more days and allowing it to germinate. It is an essential factor for a malt whisky; however, this step can be skipped in the case of grain whisky.
Drying: The germinated grain needs to be heat-treated to stop the germination process. Generally, peat smoke is introduced at this stage to give the whisky a smoky flavor and aroma.
Mashing: The dried malt is coarsely ground into a flour called grist, which is then mixed with hot water to create mash to convert the starches into sugars.
Fermentation: Once the sugary liquid is cooled, yeast is added to boost the fermentation process.
Distillation: Distillation is a process wherein the undesired impurities like methanol are removed and the alcohol content is increased.
Malt Whisky: Generally, the Wash, as it is called, is distilled twice; first in a wash still where the liquid is heated to the boiling point so that the alcohol evaporates and travels to the top of the still and into a condenser where it is cooled and returns to the liquid state. After this process, the resultant liquid contains about 20% alcohol and is termed as low wine. A second distillation is then carried out in a spirit still and the resultant distillation is divided into three cuts, of which only the middle cut or the heart of the run is used. The remaining two cuts are re-distilled as they are relatively of substandard material. At this stage, the low wine contains about 60-75% alcohol content.
Grain Whisky: Grain whisky is distilled in a column still, which consists of two columns called analyzer (washes the liquid with steam) and rectifier (carries the alcohol till it condenses to the required strength). It requires a single distillation to achieve the desired alcohol content, unlike malt whisky that requires two distillations. Grain whisky is produced by a continuous fractional distillation process where the mixture is separated into its component parts or fractions by heating them to temperatures, which will cause fractions of the liquid to evaporate.
Maturation: The new-make malt whisky is then diluted and placed in casks to mature. For the maturation process, oak casks which previously contained Sherry, Rum or Bourbon are used. Using such casks lends their characteristics to the actual Scotch that you savor.

Parameters Single Malt Blended Scotch
Defining Factors A single malt whisky is that which is made from water and malted barley, and is distilled at a single distillery. A blended Scotch whisky is called so when a malt whisky is mixed with grain whisky.
What it Actually MeansConfusion rules when we say single malt; what it actually refers to is a single producer or distillery. However, the end product need not necessarily be a single malt but is a perfect blend of malts of varying ages, such that the consistency of the product is maintained. A blended Scotch can also imply a blend or mixture of 2/3 parts of grain whisky and 1/3 part of malt whisky, not necessarily from the same distillery. A blended Scotch whisky may contain a combination of whiskies from more than 40 to 50 different malt and grain distilleries.
Differentiating Factor Single malt whisky goes through a single batch production; however, the product is a result of a blend of different aged whisky. The taste differs according to the region and distillery whence the final product comes, and the best part is that no two whiskies will ever taste the same. The minimum period for maturation is three years, and the longer the malt is allowed to mature in its wooden abode, the better the final outcome will be. It is not difficult to find a Scotch which has undergone maturation for 15 or more years. The blending takes place in the presence of a master blender, who ensures the taste of the blend remains consistent throughout. What actually happens in a blended Scotch is that the master blender, samples various malts and grain whiskies and combines them together in a cask and leaves it to mature. The differentiating factor comes in only at the stage of casking, the resultant blend is then left to mature for a minimum period of five years. Apparently, blended Scotch consists of over 90% of the total whisky production in Scotland.
Test the Taste Buds Known for its character and distinct flavor, the single malt Scotch offers an absolute treat to the senses, while keeping you as close to earthiness as possible. Compared to single malt, it is less stronger and has a more pleasing flavor than the two. However, they lack the flavor and character as the single malt.
Cost Highly priced and a connoisseur's pride, the price of single malt ranges as per the maturation period of the malt. As its major ingredient is grain whisky, it makes this variety less pricey and affordable for the general crowd.

What Causes Brain Freeze?

You guessed it right; I'm referring to the brain freeze or an ice cream headache; a sensation that's as fresh in our mind as the taste of the fruit pop that caused it. What is this weird phenomenon that almost everyone experiences, but it doesn't stay on long enough for us to investigate its causes?
Causes of Brain Freeze Headaches
We get a brain freeze when we gulp down chilled food or drinks, is something we already know. But what really triggers it, and why don't we get it every time we consume something cold? Here are the answers.
⇨A brain freeze happens when the chilled substance touches the roof of our mouth, also called the palate. This occurs when we swallow the portions rapidly, or deliberately hold it, touching the palate.
⇨The cold substance freezes the capillaries and causes the blood vessels in that area to suddenly constrict to maintain body heat.
⇨As the portion is swallowed, the palate begins to warm up, leading the blood vessels to dilate.
⇨When such contrasting responses occur in quick succession, they activate the pain receptors, which release prostaglandins. This causes us to feel the pain.
⇨The nerve that carries these pain receptors to the brain is the trigeminal nerve.
⇨This is how the brain gets tricked into believing that the pain is coming from the forehead instead of the mouth.
⇨So, the location of the actual pain is different from where the brain figures it's coming from, and this is termed as referred pain.
Avoiding Brain Freeze Headaches
It is necessary to learn how to stop brain freeze from occurring, as giving up on chilled foods and beverages is obviously out of question. Just read through and you'll know.
⇨It is the cold-hot variation on the palate that causes brain freeze. Just avoid gulping down cold things.
⇨While eating or drinking, place the portion on the tongue for a while, as it heats up a bit. This will not send shock waves through your palate.
⇨Just in case you feel an attack coming on, roll your tongue, so that the underside touches the roof of your mouth. Press your tongue to the palate, and hold it for a few moments till the palate warms.
