Repeatedly experiencing 'near misses' affects adversely and has long term implications. People usually give up and are demotivated.

A cool paper in Psychological Science explores what people learn from real experiences with things rather than just observation.

Getting trapped in a dull conversation at a party is annoying. Getting stuck in one every day at work? Intervention is needed.

I've always found a well-placed yawn and then walking away does the trick just fine.

A paper in Psychological Science demonstrates that nearly winning something is more motivating that either being far from winning or actually winning.
Nearly winning a prize is more motivating than winning it.

A nice paper in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General looks at the consistency of flashbulb memories over a 10-year time span.
Vivid memories following shocking experiences are not completely accurate.

Steve is a great trainer. He has helped us with two of our dogs. He does a wonderful job of explaining the main goal of training and then giving specific tools we were able to use to train our dogs. I highly recommend Steve as a trainer.
