Don’t annoy me: why we hate

Не раздражай меня: почему мы ненавидим

Anger, anger and hatred — one of the most dangerous emotions. Is rust, which slowly poisons all the blood and eats the inside. But whether they differ between themselves and in what way? It is obvious that anger and resentment is the initial form that eventually has all chances to grow to a volume of overwhelming hatred.

Someone has a “short burst” and immediately explodes with rage and hatred, often bypassing the stage of irritation. Others may experience only irritation: whatever the provocation, they never rage for real.

Well-known Ukrainian psychologist and PhD Natalia Kholodenko noted on this occasion: “every person speed of reaction to a stimulus will be different because this is due to the natural features of the nervous system. Type of temperament to determine the rate and reaction force. For example, the choleric type of temperament is potentially aggressive.”

Someone who lives in your heart hatred, being near the object of his antipathy, experiencing certain sensations and physical changes in the body. Here Natalia Kholodenko said: “When a person feels hatred in his body hormonal changes, also increases the heart rate, blood pressure and other physiological changes, the function of which is to turn on protective mechanisms. Externally, it can manifest itself in tension of the neck muscles, compression of the lips, redness on the face and neck, clenching the fingers into a fist. Hatred can easily escalate into affective condition where a person cannot control their actions, so you should be able to “reset” state aggression through the body (running, screaming, drawing their emotions, the beating disappears). She always makes one stronger physically: in this state a blow or running speed will be on average 30% more.”

Some people get great pleasure from aggression and his angry behavior. They enjoy the atmosphere of conflict, exchange of unfriendly gestures and words, and sometimes blows during the fight. And while it is not known, it is normal or it is characteristic only for people with sadistic tendencies. However, many people have and dissatisfaction after outbursts of aggression. This can be their rule of life and philosophy or style of work. They are concerned about the possibility of losing control of the impulses that make them feel hatred.

Identifying the causes of hatred can not only control the magnitude of emotion, but also to learn how to deal with it. American psychologist and recognized expert in pattern recognition lies Paul Ekman has identified several aftershocks of anger, and then the root of hatred. The first one is a scientist called frustration, that is, nervous exhaustion, caused by the numerous obstacles and hindrances to progress toward the goal. Observation of a person who does something contrary to your core moral values, too, can become the cause of hatred. I will say that there is? Think about it next time you see on the street as an adult is punishing the child with a illegal, from your point of view, severity.

Some people tend to answer the same hatred with hatred, but in most cases, this reciprocity is manifested in the absence of obvious reasons. Also the reason for the antagonism may be a banal failure of a person to meet your expectations. It seems ridiculous, but most often the ball of hate begins to grow just after unvoiced in time and dashed hopes.

Why do we hate? For the first time at the global level, this issue was raised, American film Director geta Gandbhir, which was nominated for three Emmy awards, and her colleague Sam Pollard. Producer of their series of 6 episodes called “Why we hate?” has become Steven Spielberg. The film will take place on 13 October at 23:00 on Discovery Channel. This documentary series promises to answer us all the questions about hate, which are now very much concerned about the society. In particular, in an interview geta talked about brain research, which conducted their scientists. So, according to her, there are certain areas of the brain that are activated or deactivated depending on the emotions that we feel. For example, when you devalue and demean someone, some part of the brain ceases to be active. In this case, such sites lose touch with you, re-enabled when we feel connected with what or whom they think.
