People who use first-person singular are more depressed
A group of researchers from Germany found that people who often use the first person: “I” and “Myself” are more likely to be depressed and socially disabled than those who use “we.”
A total of 103 women and 15 men participated in a psychotherapy personality for an average of 60 to 90 minutes. The content was related to their interpersonal relationships, past and self-experience.
And all participants completed a questionnaire about depression and social status.
Subsequently, a research team led by Johannes Zimmerman of the University of Kassel, Germany, calculated the number of occurrences of the first-person vocabulary “I” and “My” in psychological personality, and found that people who used more similar words were more depressed.
Zimmerman explained: “People who use first-person singular terms see themselves as an independent individual in their hearts, while others are used to embedding themselves in social relationships.
“Is there some kind of depression?
Depressed people may have slow thinking, memory loss, decreased learning and work efficiency, or impaired consciousness.
From the main body, there are often symptoms such as decreased appetite, decreased libido, fatigue, weakness, headache, body pain, weight loss (or obesity).
Everyone needs to pay attention to the situation of mood depression, because mood depression is still very harmful to the human body.
Hormones secreted during mood depression have an impact on the body’s immune mechanism.
When nerves are stimulated, hormones and other chemicals are secreted in large quantities, which makes your heart beat faster and your concentration is excessive.
If this emotion cannot be controlled or lasts for too long, it will be harmful to health, because nerves and endocrine adenosine continue to secrete a large amount of hormones, causing patients to develop psychological disorders and become sick.
Depression is related to certain diseases. Suffering diseases include: diabetes, memory loss, colds, etc. It is also often associated with angina pectoris and high blood pressure, and even susceptible to cancer.
So what do you do when you are depressed?
First of all, don’t let your emotions go out of control.
Stop, take a deep breath, and calm yourself down for 10 seconds. Maybe you will find that anger comes so fast just because you want to take the opportunity to vent your emotions.
Don’t just surround yourself with a tongue-in-mouth, just for a moment, or it will affect your mood even more.
And, even if you are angry about various problems at work, do not repeat day and night, otherwise it is easy to suffer from depression in the workplace due to unsatisfactory moments.
If you are full of complaints because of long hours of overtime and complaining to others, it is better to go to your boss and see if you have a chance to change your situation.
Finally, bring joy to life.
Depression often leads to a decline in self-esteem and even renunciation.
They often underestimate themselves, debase themselves, and refuse the joy they deserve.
Learning to integrate happiness into life can effectively alleviate depression.
