They'll all fall

What's Huna and why am I linking to it? From Hunamind:

Huna is a Hawaiian word for "secret" and Max Freedom Long used it to name the techniques/religion/philosophy that he distilled from Hawaiian and other sources. There is no such things as "huna" that westerner would like to see. Huna Research counted over 2600 "schools of huna" on Hawaiian islands. If you say huna and someone else says huna, you are not necessarily talking about the exactly same thing.

Some see this as the best self-help/influence/psychology tradition of them all, and many of the "gurus" recommend it (Tad James, Style, ...)

Anyway, I almost forgot what I was about to tell you: There's a new Huna Directory

NOTE: I have placed this with a "therapy" label, with some doubts.

(outlink) www.hypnosis-japan.org/scriptlinks.html

I think I might have posted this one before, but Erik Bragg's hypnosis script collection is so great that it can handle another post.

While on the topic of sites that can handle another link, I really really recommend ChangingMinds.org and Steve's Primer of Practical Persuasion and Influence. Great when I first posted them, still great today.

(outlink) Human Motivation & Affective Neuroscience Lab

University of Michigan has started the Human Motivation & Affective Neuroscience Lab. There's quite a bit of interesting research on the connection between neurotransmitters, hormones, and motivation - including such things as what psychological effect you get from winning or losing if you've got low or high levels of testosterone. Interesting to me, at least.

(outlink) LiveScience.com - Men Pay the Ultimate Price to Attract Women

LiveScience.com - Men Pay the Ultimate Price to Attract Women: "While it is tough to be a woman, being a man can be downright deadly.

Women live longer than men. And now scientists suggest a simple Darwinian reason: Competing for a mate can wear a guy out or get him killed.

'Women live longer in almost every country, and the sex difference in lifespan has been recognized since at least the mid-18th century,' said Daniel Kruger at the University of Michigan. 'It isn't a recent trend; it originates from our deep evolutionary history.'

The idea is presented in the spring edition of the journal Human Nature."
