People help each other, envy each other, support each other and work toward their goal every day. But have you ever wondered? Why we do, What we do. What makes us take one action and leave other? Why people take different actions while being in the same situation? If yes, and you still haven’t got the answer then here’s an insight to understanding human nature. If no, then let’s find out.
As a Biotechnologist and a social media marketer, I will explain this with the help of people’s activity on social media. We see people regularly post on social media. Some of them are wise posts while some of them post the controversial material. So why do we do so?
The answer to this is in the aim itself. People do it because they want to get more likes, shares. It gives them happiness when somebody praises them.When we feel happy hormones and endorphins in our brain commonly known as neurotransmitters are released. Dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphins are responsible for our happiness. Various drugs affect these neurotransmitters and elevate their levels so that one can feel good.
Everybody wants to feel good, for this 2 min high they involve in fights over the internet, upload pics of someone who is below their level and laugh about it. I will give you an example so that you can think about why you do, what you do and can understand this better. People who post on the controversial topic, posts of beef ban, net-neutrality, politics related posts, posts on religion. These are all posted to get the maximum likes, shares or support. We all know this. But what motivates us is the high we get from the neurotransmitters which are released. There are thousands of posts on this topic. Well, I am also the same.
We all are slaves to our hormones and no matter how hard you run, but you will want to feel that high. But when you realize this that’s when you can control your actions because now you know why you do, what you do.
Post pics, get a huge amount of likes and shares but do think about what you’re posting and if it will affect someone’s feeling. You want to get the high but so does others so let’s not let someone else’s happy hormones go down. And keep in mind that the high we are getting are not at the expense of other’s feelings.
Hope you enjoyed the article and realized why we do, what we do. Now, let me get some high, please share the post so that more people can realize that we are not free but slaves to our hormones and manage their actions accordingly.
