Blog Post Three: Incentive Value

Blog Post Three: Incentive Value

          Incentive Value is attractiveness of an incentive based on objective properties such as a number or amount. An example of this would be having a certain number of things that you like and that you need to have in your daily life. I feel as though this could be something that is good and something that could also be bad. Sometimes people don't know they're limit and just keep going to buy these items and collecting them.

Blog Post Two:Characteristics Of Addiction

     "Addiction is a brain disorder characterized by compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli despite adverse consequences (SAMHSA). With this being said, there are many different characteristics of addiction such as craving, seeking out, and use of a particular drug. Some of the other characteristics are voluntary drug use results in either quitting, using occasionally, or compulsive involuntary use. "Finding an effective approach for treatment can mean investigating different doctors or programs before finding a good match" (end addiction). It is so important to know that if you are fighting addiction then you are not alone. There are so many ways that you can get yourself help, you just need to talk to someone and get the help that you need.

Post 1- Self Control

Post One: Self Control

        I believe that self control is a very important thing to have. Self control is known as "an aspect of inhibitory control, is the ability to regulate one's emotions, thoughts, and behavior in the face of temptations and impulses. A related concept in psychology is emotional self-regulation. Self control is thought to be like a muscle" (Wiki). An example of self control would be when you see that only one cookie is left and you use your willpower to not eat it because you know that the cookie isn't good for you. Personally, I feel that there are a lot of people in this world that don't have self control. For example, my one friend doesn't have any self control because she just keeps eating and eating and has no idea when to stop. 

Below I have posted a link to a YouTube video of a song about self control and ways to help you have self control
