Music Taboos

Today all the people are provided the full right to hear and produce the music of all kinds. However the people didn’t have this great freedom in the past times. Since the ancient times the people tabooed this or that sound sequence, musical instrument or song. Of course the taboos of various epochs were defined by the whole variety of social factors, since accepting the sounds as music is the purely social phenomenon.
In the ancient world music was connected with purely ceremonial traditions and was supposed to have some magical power. The separate groups of Maya Indians and Aztecs even banned any type of music. People of those times supposed music is able to change the mind of a human beings and make them carry out the orders of the musician. That is why all the musical instruments were banned and music was allowed to play only during the most important ceremonies like birth, funeral or wedding.

Personality or Stereotype?

They say that each person has the unique temper and psychological peculiarities. There are four general psychological types of the people: sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic and melancholic.

It is a wide-spread opinion that it is not that easy to change the psychological type.

The more grains of sand there is the more significant the pile is. The experience is being accumulated constantly as we have to make a choice almost every minute. The information of our choice is stored in the sphere of subconscious. If a person doesn't see any consistent pattern in his or her actions and thinks of them as of the occasional events the most frequent choice turns into a habit. The more similar action the one performs the more "automatic" his actions get. For example a person may get accustomed to grumble and accuse everyone if something doesn't go in accordance with his plans. This grumbling is accepted by this person as his own habit. "That's the way I am". In that way he is constantly carrying around the growing pile of sand with him. But he piles it up himself.

Are Love And Compassion Equal For Women?

The dictionaries and reference books provide the different explanations for the words “love” and “sympathy”.But still the most of women make these notions equal in practice. Many modern girls have the boyfriends who are weak and delicate, but they love them more than the courageous and powerful men. Women feel both love and compassion towards losers, nerds and unappreciated geniuses. Actually they really love these fragile men though it seems to contradict the law of evolution.
