10 Excellent Pictures To Show What’s Wrong With Our Society

10 Excellent Pictures To Show What’s Wrong With Our Society

Jean Jullien is a French artist currently living in London. He is up for all sorts of graphics. Here are 10 of his powerful and honest illustrations to show what’s wrong about modern society:

1.
Apple watch

    People are so preoccupied with technology. Many of us spend large amount of time and energy consumed usually on smartphones, laptops, and/or Apple products. But do we really get freedom with these things, or we get more attached than ever? Moderation is the key.

    2.
    Tinder

      Do you think this is a relationship goal? I think not. This is an honest scenario where two people, supposed to be a couple, are so engaged with internet-connected gadgets which may be powering down the relationship.

      3.
      Time

        Everything we do requires time. But sadly, we can’t manage time. We can only manage ourselves. We set priorities because we can’t do everything all at once. It is hard to avoid the fact that we are running out of time. The problem with some people is they depend on “tomorrow”, but “tomorrow” will always have the same amount of time as “today”.

        4.
        Fashion

          One ultimate misconception about fashion is people need to be always up to date. But frankly, people are not necessarily responsible to always follow the latest trends. Dress what works for you and what makes you feel comfortable about yourself.

          5.
          Fat or fit

            FIT, NOT FAT!

            Admit it, some people used to judge others based on the looks alone. Stop judging and start realizing: fat people are not always in bad health, same as healthy people are not always in ideal body shape.

            6.
            Racism

              Racism is prevalent. It has claimed too many lives. Everybody must be aware: humanity, not skin color, defines us.

              7.
              Violence

                Violence is never the answer! You don’t answer violence with violence. There’s no way we could get justice through it.

                8.
                Warfare

                  It’s a shame how people can be this insensitive. People, who prioritize taking pictures or such selfish acts instead of helping other people, are seriously terrifying!

                  9.
                  Selfie

                    Selfies are everywhere. But hey, what’s wrong with selfie–it’s just a picture?! Actually, there’s nothing wrong with selfies. Not until it happens to some people in social media, and as a part of common social issues, that selfies affect their self esteem and make them feel superior or inferior depending on how society judge them.

                    10.
                    Listen

                      Blessed are those who are able to hear; gifted are those who are able to understand. People who do not listen are those you don’t need to share your life with.

                      Science Says People Who Talk To Themselves Are Geniuses

                      Science Says People Who Talk To Themselves Are Geniuses

                      I talk a lot to myself. It helps me to keep my concentration on the activity on hand, makes me focus more on my studies, and gives me some pretty brilliant ideas while chattering to myself; more importantly, I produce better works. For example, right now, as I am typing, I am constantly mumbling to myself. Do you talk to yourself? Don’t get embarrassed admitting it because science has discovered that those who talk to themselves are actually geniuses… and not crazy!

                      Research Background

                      Psychologist-researcher Gary Lupyan conducted an experiment where 20 volunteers were shown objects, in a supermarket, and were asked to remember them. Half of them were told to repeat the objects, for example, banana, and the other half remained silent. In the end, the result shown that self-directed speech aided people to find the objects faster, by 50 to 100 milliseconds, compared to the silent ones.

                      “I’ll often mutter to myself when searching for something in the refrigerator or the supermarket shelves,” said Gary Lupyan.

                      This personal experience actually made him conduct this experiment. Lupyan, together with another psychologist, Daniel Swigley, came up with the outcomes that those to talk to oneself are geniuses. Here are the reasons:

                      It stimulates your memory

                      When you are talking to yourself, your sensory mechanism gets activated. It gets easier on your memory since you can visualize the word, and you can act accordingly.[1]

                      It helps stay focused

                      When you are saying it loud, you stay focused on your task,[2] and it helps you recognise that stuff immediately. Of course, this only helps if you know what the object you are searching looks like. For example, a banana is yellow in colour, and you know how a banana looks like. So when you are saying it loud, your brain immediately pictures the image on your mind. But if you don’t know what banana looks like, then there is no effect of saying it loud.

                      It helps you clarify your thoughts

                      Every one of us tends to have various types of thoughts. Most make sense, while the others don’t. Suppose you are furious at someone and you feel like killing that person. Now for this issue you won’t run to a therapist, will you? No, what you do is lock yourself in a room and mutter to yourself. You are letting go off the anger by talking to yourself, the pros and cons of killing that person, and eventually you calm down. This is a silly thought that you have and are unable to share it with any other person. Psychologist Linda Sapadin said,[3]

                      “It helps you clarify your thoughts, tend to what’s important and firm up any decisions you are contemplating.”
