huge fucking post:


How to read people’s minds.

Watch Those Pupils
A persons pupils get bigger when they are aroused, interested and/or receptive. If you look into his or her eyes and see those pupils growing large - it’s looking good for you. Basically big pupils (unless it’s just dark) mean a person likes what they see.

Try this experiment, and you’ll understand how immediate this effect can be. Go right now and look in the mirror at your own eyes. As you look at them, imagine a sexy man or woman you are attracted to - in whatever way would turn you on. You’ll see that your pupils get bigger in just seconds. Actually, if you love to fish, they may get big just thinking about a lake you love. Anything you like to look at can make your pupils bigger.

Now, there are two ways to use this.

1. Mind Reading
For the mind reading part, you can now watch for changing of pupil size to know if someone is interested in you or what you have to say. And yes, shrinking pupils generally do mean the person is not interested. Just be careful to note if light in the persons eyes is causing the shrinking pupils.

In addition to judging the general level of interest and/or receptivity to you, you can use pupil size to go a little
deeper into a person’s mind. For example, during the course of a conversation, you can describe various scenes or delve into different topics, while watching the persons pupils. If their pupils shrank at the mention of skiing, and got huge when you described a beach you like, you can be fairly certain they would like the Bahamas over a ski resort.

The great thing about this little trick is that you can easily test it and refine your technique. Start with a friend whose interests you know already, and watch their pupils as you describe various places or even ideas. See if getting them to visualize, by saying something “Remember how that car of yours looked,” gets a bigger pupil response.

2. Influencing
If you haven’t yet experimented with your own pupils, by watching them in the mirror, go try it now. You’ll find that you can quickly train yourself to change your pupil size at will. Just find a mental image or two that gets them really big, and use these as necessary. Look at a light briefly when you want to shrink your pupils back down. Now, how do you use this?

We all use little clues like pupil size as we interact with people. We are affected by people’s expressions and body language even when we haven’t yet learned to identify it. In other words - the person in front of you will unconsciously pick upon your enlarging pupils. They will unconsciously take this to mean that you like them,
and for many people, this will make them like you more.

Listen. This is the easiest and most effective way to read minds. Just pay attention, ask a few questions and listen to what they say about themselves.

Watch the Posture. Leaning towards indicates that the person is interested and receptive.

Watch For Hair Play. When women play with their hair while talking to you, it is almost always a sign of receptivity.

Watch the Mouth. A slightly open mouth is a sign of curiosity and interest.

Watch the Head. A tilting head, especially if it comes with a smile and eye contact, is a sign that the person likes you.

Watch the Eyes  
Here is what people’s minds are doing when they are thinking or asked to remember something. This is true for most right handed people (reverse all this for left-handed people): As you face them, and their eyes go:
Up and to the right - they are remembering a visual image.
Up and to the left - They are constructing a visual image.
To the right - They are remembering sounds or conversation.
To the left - The are constructing sounds or conversations.
Down and to the right - They are in an internal dialog.
Down and to the left - They are accessing kinesthetic feelings, tastes and smells.

How to influence the opposite sex:
Use Mirroring and Matching. Match the speed of your speech to that of the person you’re talking to. Sit like he or she is sitting. Use the words they use. This is a fast way to build rapport. Once there is a “bond” built, you can start to lead the conversation and actions where you want them to go.

Compliment Her or Him. Discover what the person is proud of first, then find a genuine way to compliment them in that area.

Listen. Always show a genuine interest in what the person is saying. Ask appropriate questions, so the person knows you’re paying attention. Use their interests to lead into a direction you want to go.

Make Good First Impressions. Men usually form a quick visual impression in less than 20 seconds, and then make another judgment based on appearance and personality within a couple minutes. Women usually place less immediate emphasis on appearance, and form an “intuitive” first impression in a couple minutes. The lesson? Work fast.

Understanding a Shame-Based Personality

There is a difference between blaming and shaming a person. Blaming is being told you did something wrong. Shaming is being told that there’s something wrong with you, and you’re worthless, bad, inferior or inadequate. Examples of shaming statements include:

·         “You were a mistake; I wish I’d never had you”

·         “You’re useless; you’ll never amount to anything.”

·         “You could never do what he/she does”

·         “You’ve ruined my life; you ruin everything for everyone”

Adults shamed in childhood have the following traits:

1. They are afraid to share their true thoughts and feelings with others.

2. They are terrified of intimacy and put up walls in relationships. They also fear commitment as they expect to be rejected.

3. They are often extremely shy, easily embarrassed, and are terrified of being shamed or humiliated. They tend to suffer from debilitating false guilt.

4. They struggle with feelings of worthlessness and believe they are inferior to others. They believe that is something they can never change as worthlessness is at the core of who they are.

5. They often feel ugly and flawed, even when they’re beautiful – and everyone tells them that.

6. They may be narcissistic and act as if they have it all together; alternatively, they may be completely selfless, almost to the point of being a doormat.

7. They are often very defensive and find it hard to bear the slightest criticism. They feel as if they are being constantly watched and judged.

8.  They have a pervasive sense of loneliness and always feel like outsiders (even when others genuinely like and love them).

9. They feel controlled – as if they always have to do want others want and say – and this blocks spontaneity.

10. They are perfectionists and usually suffer from performance anxiety. This may also cause them to be procrastinators.

11. They tend to block their feelings through compulsive behaviors like eating disorders, retail therapy or substance-abuse.

12. They find it hard to establish and enforce healthy boundaries with others.  

What is Emotional Abuse?

An emotionally abusive person may “dismiss your feelings and needs, expect you to perform humiliating or unpleasant tasks, manipulate you into feeling guilty for trivial things, belittle your outside support system or blame you for unfortunate circumstances in his or her life. Jealousy, possessiveness and mistrust characterize an emotionally abusive person”[1].  In summary, emotional abuse includes the following:

1. Acting as if a person has no value and worth; acting in ways that communicate that the person’s thoughts feelings and beliefs are stupid, don’t matter or should be ignored.

2. Calling the person names; putting them down; mocking, ridiculing, insulting or humiliating them, especially in public.

3. Controlling through fear and intimidation; coercing and terrorizing them; forcing them to witness violence or callousness; threatening to physically harm them, others they love, their animals or possessions; stalking them; threatening abandonment.

4. Isolating them from others, especially their friends and family; physically confining them; telling them how they should think, act, dress, what decisions they can make, who they can see and what they can do (limiting their freedom); controlling their financial affairs.

5. Using that person for your own advantage or gain; exploiting their rights; enticing or forcing another to behave in illegal ways (for example, selling drugs).

6. Stonewalling and ignoring another’s attempt to relate to and interact with them; deliberately emotionally detaching from a person in order to hurt them or “teach them a lesson”; refusing to communicate affection and warmth, or to meet their emotional and psychological needs.

Instead of using a word, use another word with the same meaning but infinitely stronger connotations

So, let me guess— you just started a new book, right? And you’re stumped. You have no idea how much an AK47 goes for nowadays. I get ya, cousin. Tough world we live in. A writer’s gotta know, but them NSA hounds are after ya 24/7. I know, cousin, I know. If there was only a way to find out all of this rather edgy information without getting yourself in trouble…
You’re in luck, cousin. I have just the thing for ya.
It’s called Havocscope. It’s got information and prices for all sorts of edgy information. Ever wondered how much cocaine costs by the gram, or how much a kidney sells for, or (worst of all) how much it costs to hire an assassin?
I got your back, cousin. Just head over to Havocscope.
((PS: In case you’re wondering, Havocscope is a database full of information regarding the criminal underworld. The information you will find there has been taken from newspapers and police reports. It’s perfectly legal, no need to worry about the NSA hounds, cousin ;p))

Hello lovely,

Spotting emotional abuse can be difficult, because the people who are being abusive will often act as though it’s just “tough love” or being realistic, even though it’s neither of those things in any case, and it is never okay. Emotional abuse can often have more psychologically damaging effects than physical abuse. In fact, research suggests that the silent treatment (one form of emotional abuse), can do just as much negative damage on the victim as being beaten up.

There are many, many different types of emotional abuse, and each of them should be taken seriously. I hunted down some old posts and responses on emotional abuse that different admins and myself have done, and have put together a list for you (all definitions are my own words).

  • Abusive Expectations: The abuser always expects/demands more of the victim, regardless of how much effort and work they are putting into whatever they are expected to do. The abuser generally will demand more than what the victim is capable of. This is very common in parents who expect children to do well at school. They try their hardest on a test, come home with an “A” and the parents will be angry and demand that next time they get an A+ even if that is beyond their intelligence level.

  • Accusing: The abuser will point fingers at the victim and accuse them of doing negative things, or being the reason something has gone wrong. e.g. If the abuser has a bad day at work, comes home to their spouse and starts accusing their spouse of doing this thing wrong, or that thing wrong, and thus creating a bad work day. The abuser may also say that the victim is responsible for things going missing/getting broken, even if the victim has been nowhere near those things. Being the victim of accusing is often described as being similar to being on trial.

  • Bigoted remarks: Any comment which is a direct insult/stereotype against a particular group of people. This can include racist remarks, sexist remarks, ableist remarks, homophobic remarks and religion remarks, to name a few.

  • Blaming: Essentially the same as accusing, except accusing tends to be more direct, whereas blaming might be more subtle, e.g. comments that begin with, “well if SOMEONE hadn’t done this, maybe…” with a glance or look towards the victim when they say someone. The abuser doesn’t necessarily say that whatever happened is definitely the victim’s fault, but there are strong implications that can even make the victim begin to question and blame themselves.

  • Blocking: The abuser will avoid addressing relevant issues relating to the victim, or will end conversations early, even when the conversations are necessary to work through a problem. This is typically done after an argument; the victim will try to talk about the dispute, but the abuser won’t listen, or will act like nothing was ever wrong in the first place, even when the dispute must be discussed in order for both parties to move past it.

  • Bullying: To be constantly mean to a person in any way, particularly if they rank “lower” in any way, whether this be social status, physical size, age or physical strength. Bullying is usually only used as an umbrella term in schools or the work place to encompass all kinds of abuse.

  • Conning: The abuser will gain someone’s trust purely so they can turn around and use it against them. Remember the popular kid you got close to in high school who then went around telling everyone all your secrets for laughs? They’re a con.

  • Condescension: Otherwise known as “talking down”. The abuser will address the victim and speak to them as though they are unintelligent, childish or foolish (see, that one kid from high school who understood algebra right from the word go and would sneer at everyone who didn’t know what x stood for). Usually the victim will feel stupid, or like they are being treated like a small child.

  • Countering: The abuser will automatically disagree with anything the victim says, before even fully listening to what they have to say. e.g: Victim: You can’t keep ignoring me because-” Abuser: “I’ve been ignoring you because it’s better for you.” Victim: “But it’s not, it’s making things worse because-“  Abuser: “No, trust me, I know what’s best in this situation.”

  • Criticizing: Putting someone down and/or showing clear harsh disapproval because of the way they look, speak, act, think, or do anything. Addressing problematic behaviour is okay, “I’m worried about you doing ______ because I don’t believe it’s healthy for you and I’m concerned”, but something such as “You shouldn’t be doing _______ because it’s disgusting, what the hell is wrong with you?!” is not okay.

  • Discounting: The abuser will totally invalidate the victims thoughts and feelings in favour of their own. e.g: Victim: “You can’t keep ignoring me because it’s making me feel worse and I can’t just let things go while you’re doing this.” Abuser: “I’ve been ignoring you because it’s what’s best for you. If I stop ignoring you it will make it harder for you to let things go.” Victim: “But I just told you that ignoring me makes it harder.” Abuser: *goes back to ignoring them* This is an invalidation because the victim has clearly expressed their thoughts and feelings, but the abuser has ignored those thoughts and feelings and fought back against them, just so things can be their way.

  • Domination: This is not the sexual behaviour. Domination in terms of abuse is when the abuser constantly enforces power over the victim in order to control them. This can cross over into physical abuse when the abuser literally stands over the victim and gets in their face. The different types of control that may be put in place by the dominative abuser include, threats, being bossy/ordering, monitoring/stalking and isolation.

  • Double Binds: This is slightly tricky. In basic double binds, the abuser presents the victim with the illusion of two options/possibilities, but doing one of those would effectively make it impossible to do the other. Like when you’re at school and your teacher gives you two big pieces of homework to do in one night, knowing full well that you only realistically have time to do one of them. A complex double bind is when the victim is given the illusion of having a choice between two or more things, but in reality, they have to choose the one the abuser wants, otherwise there will be negative consequences. Usually the abuser will only imply the threat rather than give it directly, as this still leaves the victim with the semi-illusion that they have a choice in what they do.

  • Emotional Blackmail: The abuser will take a fear or secret of the victims and hold it against them in order to get them to do what the abuser wants. e.g. if an abuser finds out that the victim has a fear of spiders, so in order to get the victim to do what they want, they threaten to put a spider under the victim’s pillow if they don’t do as they’re told. Another form of emotional blackmail is the classic guilt-trip, where if the abuser doesn’t get what they want, they will make the victim feel bad e.g. if a guy asks his girlfriend to hang out with him and she says she’s not in the mood, he may say it’s okay, but then act really sad and miserable and be really negative towards himself for the next few hours talking about how unwanted he is, until his girlfriend feels so guilty that she goes and hangs out with him.

  • Ethnic Slurs: Use of an insulting/rude/degrading word based on someone’s race or national identity, or degrading/insulting/rude comments based on someone’s race or national identity e.g. when fair-skinned people use the “N-word”

  • Fake Forgetting: The abuser will pretend to forget about something that was previously agreed upon with the victim (e.g. doing the dishes before the victim gets home). They will usually apologise for it, but the apology won’t be sincere, and they will likely “forget” about the same thing again.

  • Gaslighting: The abuser is mean/degrading to the victim, but will then flip it around to make it look like it’s the victims fault that what they’ve done is seen as bad. Common gaslighting phrases include, “it was just a joke”, and “you’re too sensitive” when the abuser knows full well that they’re in the wrong, and the victim has every right to be feeling attacked, hurt or upset.

  • Guilt tripping: Mentioned up with emotional blackmail. The abuser makes the victim feel guilty about doing/not doing things that they actually shouldn’t feel guilty for. They play on the victim’s conscience and twist the victim’s feelings and empathy in their favour.

  • Innuendoes and Insinuations: Indirect, subtle and implied comments designed to hurt, demean or accuse the victim. They are often used to push blame onto the victim, see my example for blaming, as that is also an insinuation.

  • Judging: Much the same as criticizing, judging is when the abuser constantly forms unnecessary opinions about the victim, looks down on them for decisions that they don’t agree with, and has something to say about nearly everything the victim says or does. Humans are judgemental by nature, but it becomes abusive when the abuser is constantly voicing their negative views of the victim’s character.

  • Lying: Any instance where the truth is not told. Not sharing information is not lying, but it may be a form of blocking or withholding.

  • Name calling or Labelling: This comes under verbal abuse, and is any negative term that the abuser puts on the victim. It’s typical schoolyard bully behaviour, only it tends to be much more ongoing and hurtful in instances of serious abuse. It can reach a point where the victim will begin to genuinely believe that the hurtful labels put on them are a reflection of their true character, even when they’re not.

  • Ordering: Direct bossiness; commanding the victim do something without being polite, saying please, or giving them a choice to say no.

  • Sexism: Trying to force the victim to conform to gender roles, or using gender to decide rank. e.g. A husband saying that he is the “man of the house” so what he says goes, or a mother telling her son to toughen up and get over it because “real men don’t cry”

  • Verbal abuse: Often listed as its own category of abuse, but technically falls under emotional abuse, and when put separately, verbal and emotional abuse can both fall under the category of psychological abuse. Verbal abuse is when a person says mean, hurtful, degrading, demeaning, critical things, or swears, yells or otherwise uses words to hurt or instil fear into the victim.

  • Withholding: The abuser will deliberately withhold information that the victim has a right to know about, in order to use it against them, or refusing to open up and be honest in cases where opening up is important, e.g. if someone is concerned about the mental state of their spouse, and they approach them about it, they may refuse to say anything about their thoughts or feelings even if they’re actually in danger and the concerned victim knows it.

I realise that was a lot of reading, and I’m sorry, but I wanted to really cover all this in depth. If you or someone you know is being emotionally abused, please seek help! No one should have to endure this kind of treatment from anyone in their life at any stage, no matter what the circumstances are.

Be safe.

Black Holes:

Nine Facts about Black Holes

1. The gravitational pull of a black hole can greatly slow down time itself, according to relativity. If you could take a spaceship to a black hole, orbit around it for awhile, and then fly back to Earth, you would have successfully traveled to the future. 
2. Some equations suggest that every black hole contains a universe — which would mean our universe is inside a black hole right now.
3. While black holes are most definitely real, they have theoretical opposites called white holes, which would endlessly spew matter into the universe. They were thought to be purely hypothetical, but an unusual gamma ray burst observed in 2006 is turning out to be a potential candidate for a real-life white hole.
4. Supermassive black holes likely exist at the centers of most galaxies. And since galaxies sometimes collide, that means black holes do too, and when that happens, it’s thought that one black hole ‘kicks’ the other out of the galaxy.
5. Black holes are black because their gravity is so strong that not even light can escape. But they do emit radiation, usually called Hawking Radiation, after Stephen Hawking, who first theorized its existence.
6. The Milky Way has a supermassive black hole in its center, and it seems to have exploded about 2 million years ago in an event known as a Seyfert flare. The radiation from the black hole would have been 100 million times more powerful than it is now; the explosion may have even been visible from Earth.
7. Black holes can emit material at nearly the speed of light. Using an array of radio telescopes, a team of scientists looked at a galaxy 1.5 billion light-years from Earth and found a black hole doing just that. The jet is so powerful that it’s blowing gas right out of the galaxy.
8. Black holes are the densest objects in existence. If you made a black hole with the mass of the entire Earth, the black hole would be 9 millimeters across.
9. Black holes can form when stars collapse in on themselves after death. They keep growing by eating the dust and gas around them. No one’s really sure how the biggest ones, called supermassive black holes, are born.
