Mantra Hidden Psychological Problems
Have you ever noticed how many people have mantras when friends around you speak?
Maybe some people say 10 words, including 8 “then”; some people never seem to have a happy time, always “depressed” in mouth; US President Barack Obama always says “IMHO”In an interview with the New York Times, Kennedy’s daughter once said 142 “you know.”
Absolutely rich, poor, low, and culturally literate, mantras are like plasters sticking to people’s lips.
Chinese people are obsessed with the “Top Ten Mantras”. According to surveys, more than 40% of the current white-collar workers are “depressed”.
Regardless of whether you want to order food or discuss a spring trip together, some people answer with the word “anywhere” . Although the mantra is various, the “Life Times” and the Sina Health Channel recently involved Henan, Beijing, Shanghai, and GuangdongAccording to a survey conducted by the population of dozens of large cities such as Hunan, Hubei, Zhejiang, etc., the “Top Ten Mantras” that Chinese people like to say most are ranked according to their rankings: “random” (10.

In fact, not only the Chinese say a lot, but Americans also like to say the most.
A survey conducted in the United States turned out to be “Whatever”, which is equivalent to the word “random” or “indifferent” in Chinese. It was elected as the most spoken but most annoying mantra of Americans.
In the back are “you know”, “in short”, “this is the fact”, “in the end” and so on.
In addition to these classic mantras, many popular words appear every year and become people’s mantras.
This year’s most popular is the “power” that appeared after the World Cup in South Africa.
Zhou Song, who works for an IT company, loves to talk about it recently: playing games smoothly through customs, unconsciously cheering for “power”, if he fails, he mumbles “really powerless”.
Later, he developed a colleague who borrowed a pen from him and brought him a meal, all of which answered with the word “to force”.
“Juli” originally meant “spirit, wonderful, great”. When the reporter asked him why he said “Juli”, his answer was: “No why, simple, easy to use, and expressing special power!”
“The hidden psychological problem of mantras How did mantras come about?
Why do people often blurt out once they have this habit, like addiction, and cannot control themselves?
“In fact, mantra is a derogatory term.
“Wang Guorong, a senior supervisor of the Suzhou Junge Psychological Counseling Center, pointed out that it originally meant some monks who did not know the way, and often put some mysterious and mysterious Zen words in their mouths, pretending to look like they had the way.
In modern society, it should also contain some derogation.
“Mantras don’t make language languish, as if they have a tumor. More importantly, some mantras hide certain psychological problems.
“Wang Yuru, president of the Shanghai Psychological Industry Association, believes that from her usual observations, it is also that neutral mantras account for the majority, and the proportion of positive mantras has decreased.
A mantra represents the social mentality of a group.
She analyzed that the mantra was more than 30 years of age, indicating that the diversity of modern society puts their lives and thinking in a loose and immature state, but had to face sudden social pressure.Release and vent through mantras.
Mantras like “boring, boring, depressing” typically reflect this mentality.
Professor Huang Yueqin, deputy dean of Peking University Sixth Hospital and director of the Center for Mental Health of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, recalled that in the 1960s, many of the most popular mantras were positive, such as “bread will have.”
This line from the former Soviet film “Lenin in October” became the mantra of most young people at that time, inspiring a generation to overcome difficulties and be positive.
“If young people of that era are defined by ‘mass’ and ‘have ideals,’ young people today can be defined as ‘niche people’ and ‘no ideals.’
Wang Yuru said that this is the root cause of the positive and negative mantras.
Negative mantras may be able to achieve a psychological catharsis for individuals. Talking about “sick” or “interesting” and “depressed” will make you feel more comfortable.
“But these hypertensive mantras have a strong psychological suggestion and affect the emotions of those around them.
“Huang Yueqin pointed out.
The neutral mantra, some kind of “any casual”, “don’t know”, etc. Wang Guorong believes that it actually reflects the mentality of giving up self-selection and negative rejection.
People who like to say “any casual” are often those who like to follow the trend and cannot decide for themselves.
“Randomly” hides the subtext of shirk responsibility “Don’t blame me, it’s okay with me”.
No matter what others ask, answering “don’t know” first is also a manifestation of lack of responsibility.
There are also some neutral mantras that have no meaning, such as “then”, “um”, “this way”, etc. Wang Guorong suggested that it is better not to say if you can say it. The really good language is clean, logical, and correct.Objectively, the addition of small and broken things, almost people are uncomfortable listening, but also a pollution of language.
”You can try another positive mantra, but you’re actually changing your mindset.
“Xinghua Liu, associate professor of the Department of Psychology, Capital Normal University, said that some popular words such as” awesome “or” powerful “, as well as the Korean drama” Cheer up, Jin Sanshun “in the past two years have become popular.As a mantra, these are all conducive to maintaining a healthy mental state.
Because when people praise others, their inner appreciation will be felt by others, and they will use the same emotions to return.
Wang Guorong’s last suggestion is that everyone can ask the people around them what mantras they have, and then write them down on the paper and consciously analyze them most frequently. Some of them are uncomfortable, which has a negative impact on them.
Bad mantra, we need to reduce the number of times a little bit, 10 times today, 8 times tomorrow, and finally expel it from life.
