These evolving theories are not unexpected because the field is continuously learning how feelings affect perception, reasoning, problem solving abilities and the ways in which people adapt to life events. The current research offers the biological explanations for the health psychology position; these human emotions are biological, psychological and sociological in nature.

I don't want to believe this at all, especially with my recent cyber-stalking incident. There are always ways to manage and defend. ??? Thoughts??

Here is one for the nerds of the google world 😁

✦ Perception bias exists in public health news messages✦

1. "The theory of the third-person effect traces its roots to World War II propaganda. The theory suggests that individuals will perceive a mass media message to have more influence on others, than themselves. "

2. This perception tends to counteract the message's intended "call-to-action." Basically, this suggests that over time people wised up to the fact that some mass media message were intended to manipulate them -- so the messages became less and less effective.

3. In light of the findings, Lee recommends using alternate channels to promote health messages, rather than relying on news media to persuade.

The task is to insert health topics to "flu shot" (Who needs to.....blah, blah)
and my question is what are the alternate channels to promote healthy living.

This surely applies to health psychology and the application of using the biological-psychological-sociological concept.

The Use of Technology to Stalk

Many of you may not be aware that I was cyber stalked enough so as to fill out an FBI report. (Phone and number was wiped out, computer, website, affiliate account, godaddy & hostgater accounts, charge card, dropbox, facebook etc all compromise and I'm pretty sure unfavorable images of me are floating are the internets) If you come across an image send it to me!! All in attempts to totally wipe me off the internet.

My new phone is still being hacked via messages being interrupted by people in an attempt to gaslight! I am one of the lucky ones and the investigator team found enough evidence to follow through.

1 in 10 people are cyber stalked and most people DO NOT report it because they feel embarrassed. You need to understand that this is a form of abuse, you must report it to the FBI and follow up as much as possible.

The below post might be helpful.
