Crying is self-protection for 15 minutes
Crying is a human instinct. It is an emotional expression of human beings and a kind of self-protection.
銆€銆€William Frye, a psychologist at the University of Minnesota in the United States, should have been studying for five years of crying. The results show that within a month, men cry up to seven times, while women cry more than 30 times.
Hasson, an evolutionary biologist at Tel Aviv University in Israel, said crying is a highly evolved behavior of humans.
Just like language, only humans have a real cry.
銆€銆€Zhang Tianbu, chief physician of the Department of Psychology, Shaanxi Provincial People’s Hospital, told reporters that although sadness and sorrow are the most powerful “tears”, but besides, hi, anger, fear of tears, some, too scared to cryToo happy to cry, and to be crying.
It should be said that all of this is a normal behavioral response of human beings.
銆€銆€A recent study by Hassan found that tears can even send signals of self-protection.
It will obscure people’s sights and prevent them from making aggressive behaviors against others. At the same time, they can show their own vulnerability, let the other party reduce their wariness and hostility, and will not cause casual behavior; further, the other party sees a stream.The face of tears will also lead to compassion and long unconscious support.
銆€銆€At the same time, crying is an important means of emotional communication and can establish a connection between people.
When you shed tears in the face of others, you are sending out such a signal: I am sharing my most vulnerable emotions with you, and you see my most real side.
The other party sees this and expects that you trust him and both parties can become friends.
銆€銆€Of course, crying does not always mean fragility. It can help the body release stress and has a great interest in maintaining good health and mental balance.
For example, a baby uses crying to promote the growth of the lungs. A woman loves to cry and lives longer than a man.
銆€銆€Frye did an interesting experiment: he let a person see the moving movie and collect the tears they shed because of the movement; let another group cut the onions and collect the tears they left behind with the spicy eyes.
As a result, it was found that the “emotional tears” that flowed down because of the movement contained catecholamines, but not in “reflecting tears.”
Frye pointed out that catecholamine is a chemical released by the brain under emotional stress. If it accumulates too much in the body, it is easy to increase the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.
It is very necessary for people to have “emotional tears” in a timely manner. It is to “detoxify” physically and psychologically.
Therefore, don’t hold it hard when you cry.
銆€銆€If you don’t move, you cry and you are depressed. One third of the people cry after the emotions are not relieved. Experts suggest that they cry for 15 minutes at most. But the difference is that some people are more 鈥渃old-blooded鈥?and will not hurt when they see anything; some people are born withThe eye socket is shallow, and a little thing can make him smash “Golden Bean”.
Therefore, Xie Shiping, director of the Second Department of Psychology, Nanjing Brain Hospital, pointed out that people who cry when they are motionless usually have the characteristics of depression.
銆€銆€Crying is a magical gift given to people by God, but if you cry too much, turn the mental defense line, like Lin sister in “Dream of Red Mansions”, even some extreme, but it can explain this problem.
Xie Shiping said that some people are easy to cry because they are inherently sensitive and have a melancholic temperament.
Such people are more susceptible to the effects of crying, which breaks the psychological balance and causes harm to the body.
銆€銆€In addition, a study conducted by psychologists at the University of Southern California and the University of Tilburg in the Netherlands found that one-third of people cryed and their emotions did not ease. One-tenth of the people cried and became even worse.
If you cry for too long, you will be worried, manic, depressed and other mood disorders are relatively high risk, it is also easy for the mental to enter the fatigue period.
Therefore, experts suggest that the time of crying should not be too long, generally within 15 minutes.
銆€銆€Some people with depression often cry, they usually cry silently, and they don’t cry.
Therefore, Xie Shiping suggested that if someone finds that emotions continue to decline for two weeks, and often secretly shed tears, it is necessary to be vigilant. This kind of crying may be a pathological manifestation caused by depression, and should seek medical advice promptly.
