    Default Is this an example of negativism?

    So, since growing a beard and having bought a new set of sunglasses I've noticed that I get significantly more positive attention from women.

    my thoughts were the following: "it must be because both hide parts of my face"

    Lol yes insecurity too, but I meant more in the cognitive sense; I notice something changed and I focus on what's subtracted rather then on what's added to the situation.

    Theorically, yes since it's the definition of negativism that I read. In real life, so many factors enter the game. Also you must ask yourself if it's generally how you think or not. Usually we remember or highlight the things that we don't normally think/do and let the things we normally think/do as background because we are used to it.

    It depends on which style you choose to play with contrasts and what you hide/reveal.

    For instance, in pic 4 the glass is half-full.

    Two loose strings tied together under a theme: Beard and Sunglasses, why the new attention?

    Thats positivism. Youre synthesizing information to make sense of existing stimuli.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

    Nah, it's probably more self-confidence, which gives you this Give Me All You Lovin' Aura:
