Emotional Management

Some notes on this, in my opinion, very important topic. It’s not meant to be groundbreaking or even relevant for anyone else. It’s basically just a braindump of how I see this topic.

Please do not infer anything from this document.

Core Ideas

  • Emotions govern all actions individuals perform
  • People optimize for low emotional pain
    • This can mean that either some actions are simply not performed, or reframed until they do not become a pain anymore.
    • An example being for example cognitive dissonance, where ‘facing’ the truth might hurt more than simply ignoring or downplaying it.
