    When considering eating healthy, you must never fall victim to modern day fad diets. Extreme diet plans are a threat for your health, especially ones that seriously limit your daily nutritionary intake. While they may induce fast weight loss, these diet plans will never be a long-term solution for your waistline. You should search Custokebon Secrets on google since it is not just another fad diet where you starve yourself.

    This analogy of people desiring and accepting positive feedback versus negative feedback is not true in many other instances. You cannot put people in a "box" as to a "one fits all" scenario. Personally, I will (and have) listened, became more attentive, successful, if I (knew/know) the negative circumstantial outcomes. The saying "being scared straight" is true for some.

    well actually if you observed animals you wouldnt need the graph/.Its common sense actually but people have become disconected and dont trust the info that comes from their feeling which is a faster learning brain than square limited reasoning.Of course people react better to whats pleasant thats how evolution works. feel good=good for us ,evolution taught us,.,
    .Animals do the same . Not only that but direct experience is priceles as again goal is surviving not posesing info someone told you/ Animals freeze n flee BUT WAIT AND they ll COME BACK IN FORCE to do the SAME n worse until they ehemselves get convinced abt whats good.the more you push the more ppl/animals will return with force when you turn your back .,.so you certainly achieve that aka the oposite plus hiding n lying plus increased frustration n comfusion n even hostility

    RESUMO
    O cérebro reage melhor ao reforço positivo do que à critica ou ameaça.
    De forma natural, as pessoas tendem a ser recetivas ao:
    - reconhecimento social,
    - à recompensa imediata e
    - à visão de progresso e resultados nos seus comportamentos.
    Quando são confrontadas com sentimentos de medo ou de desvalorização pessoal, tendem a fechar-se, evitar o contacto, desvalorizar o 'mensageiro' ou arranjar desculpas.
    No entanto, nem todas as situações podem ser encaradas da mesma forma. Em alguns casos pode ser importante a critica construtiva ou a visão futura de uma consequência negativa.
