This type of love tends to occur in those with low self-esteem and those who gain confidence in pleasing their love interest. Mania and agape love are similar in that they both have the ability to develop into a very intense and unhealthy relationship for both parties. In both instances the parties involved have the ability to lose their sense of reality. The styles of love that have been most prevalent in my life are logical love called pragma, and friendship love called storge or philia. A love that develops from a friendship usually prevents a lot of disappointments because you already know a lot about that person.
Stimuli that is rewarding produces positive feelings in us, and stimuli that is punishing produces negative feelings. As some of the stimuli are other people it follows that some people make us happy, while others do not. According to the principles of operant conditioning, we are likely to repeat any behaviour that leads to a desirable outcome and avoid behaviour that leads to an undesirable outcome. This theory suggests that we enter into relationships because the presence of some individuals in directly associated with reinforcement – they produce a positive feeling for us – which makes them more attractive to us. As well as being attracted to someone who directly makes us happy, we also like people who we associate with a pleasant experience.

Tamia sings of how she, and her husband still love each other like the first day they met even though they both have aged, and have kids. Shakespeare says basically the same thing in his sonnet. He claims that true love is constant even though people, and circumstances change. In both works Tamia, and Shakespeare speak about how love conquers all conflict that a relationship may face. Tamia describes in her song that she, and her husband go through problems like everybody else, But she don't mind because the love she, and her husband has for one another allows them to talk it out, and move on with their lives.
These distances are called proxemics. When the person feeling interacted with experiences physical and psychological discomfort this is now called threat threshold. The Expectancy Violations Theory also explains communication as the exchange of information in a logical content that can be used to disrupt the anticipation of another. For example, you may expect a person to act in a cruel manner but then the person ends up turning out to be the sweetest person you’ve ever met. The perception of exchanging can be accepted either negatively or positively, which is called violation valence.
Swift’s repetitive creation of his extreme mental images, which appeal to one’s senses, gives the reader a false opinion about him, but subsequently becomes beneficial to his overall essay. The use of imagery in “A Modest Proposal” definitely is exceptionally vivid, and as a result, stirs up an emotional response in the reader (pathos). Swift’s intention to using imagery in his essay is to not only get dramatic reactions from his readers, but to also persuade them so much that they are agreeing with his point of view. In his essay, he offers many different descriptive images in which portray the dehumanization of children and women using words such as “breeders,” “flesh,” “carcass,” and “meat”(1026-1027). One of the disturbing images that Swift creates for his audience dehumanizes children by referring to them as pigs which would be roasted then worn as fancy gloves for females, and as boots for men.

The way that we think can make a situation appear negative or positive. As stated by Spoors et al two people in exactly the same situation can view the same situation entirely different depending on whether they have a positive optimistic outlook on life or a negative pessimistic outlook. Cognitive Therapy, a form of therapy which aims to replace negative or distorted thought with more positive and rational ones, by developing strategies to actively promote more positive thinking has proved to be effective in many cases of depression and anxiety. By replacing negative thoughts with more positive thoughts encourages more positivity and can often assist in reversing a downward spiral of negative thinking and result in a more positive and pleasant outcome. In a study conducted by Martin Seligman cited by Spoors et al, Seligman found that happiness levels increased in participants in the study when they were encouraged to focus on more positive things that had happened in their past, and to reflect on their own personal strengths and to write a daily list of things that had gone well and the reasons why.
Whereas some are dismayed when they encounter yet another breakdown, you can be energized by it. You enjoy the challenge of analyzing the symptoms, identifying what is wrong, and finding the solution. You may prefer practical problems or conceptual ones or personal ones. You may seek out specific kinds of problems that you have met many times before and that you are confident you can fix. Or you may feel the greatest push when faced with complex and unfamiliar problems.
So even though hope can bring encouragement, it can also cause distress. As Samuel Johnson once said, “Hope itself is a species of happiness, and, perhaps, the chief happiness which this world affords; but, like all other pleasures immoderately enjoyed, the excesses of hope must be expiated by pain” (“Hope Quotes”
