Matrix Psychology helps explain and predicts human behaviour - but what are the benefits?
Matrix Psychology helps people 1) understand and manage their mood ii) understand and adapt their beliefs and iii) understand and develop their personality. Difficulties in these areas underlie almost all behaviour problems.
i) Mood management and instability
1) Lack of assertiveness 2) Anger management 3) Depression management 4) Anxiety management 5) Mood swings 6) Improving your success as a trader 7) Examination and interview nerves 8) Public speaking nerves 9) Jealousy and insecurity 10) Phobias
When a person feels nervous or anxious, they cannot think or communicate clearly. This is a mood problem. Their sympathetic nervous system is putting out too much adrenaline, which redirects the brain from thinking into survival. The parasympathetic nervous system stops working, and the person stays in an insecure, anxious, aggressive or fearful state. Once a person has learnt to hold a calm assertive mood, he or she can learn to think and communicate clearly.
Unless a person has learnt to hold a calm mood, frustration worry and insecurity can push them into a fight and flight reaction. This reaction can paralyse a person with fear, overwhelm them panic or push them out of control towards anger.
A balanced person manages their energy before they reach the danger zones. They are able to take action and relax during calm periods. They are like an experienced rider on a healthy horse. They are able to move from a gallop to a standstill, to a trot, and easily turn right and left.
Balance depends on good health, mental and physical, a stable environment, sympathetic relationships and the opportunity to develop your potential.
ii) Belief problems
10) Low self-esteem and low self-opinion 11) Obsessional thoughts 12) Negative outlook on life
Conversations count. The conversations you have with the people around you are important, as is what you watch on the television and how you talk to you . If someone, especially you yourself, tells you, ‘You are bad’ after a while you believe it. That belief is one of the most damaging ideas there is.
Experience is understanding what has happened to you. If you do not understand what is going on, your life is an event or an incident. Understanding what it means, gives the event significance. An event's significance depends on what it means. If a person trips over a bag and they blame the owner of the bag, for leaving it in the way, they will want to make a rule stopping people leaving bags around. If they blame themselves for being clumsy or not seeing it, they will learn to be more careful.
If a person believes the way to solve a problem is to keep thinking about it, they will continue to think about it. If they believe they must let the idea drop and the solution will come when they least expect it, that person starts to think about something else.
What a person believes affects how they behave. If someone believes they have to be tough to get on in life, if they want to get on, he or she will behave tough. If they believe honesty is important, he or she will be honest. If someone believes kindness is important, he or she will be kind.
