If you love darkness

Dim lights can make it seem as if no one is watching, triggering moral transgressions in many people, a new study suggests.

Past research has shown that when people are concealed from view by others, say when they are wearing hoods, these individuals will be more likely to commit criminal acts and other bad behaviors.

But what about times when we're not actually anonymous - people can see us - yet we feel like we're hidden? The researchers of the new study describe it as the adult version of hide-and-seek: Kids often believe no one can see them when they cover their eyes even though they are hiding in plain sight. Turns out, a dark room can have a similar psychological effect on adults.

The results could play out in real-life office behavior, the researchers say. "Imagine that a person who is alone in a closed room is deciding whether to lie to a total stranger in an e-mail. Clearly, whether the room is well lit would not affect the person's actual level of anonymity," Chen-Bo Zhong of the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management and colleagues write in a recent issue of the journal Psychological Science.

In one experiment, 84 college students were placed in a dimly or well-lit room and were given two envelopes - one containing $10 and the other empty. Participants then had five minutes to complete a test in which they had to pick out two numbers that added up to 10 from each of 20 matrices. For each pair of numbers correctly identified participants could keep $0.50 from their money supply. The catch: Participants scored their own work, and they figured out how much money they got to keep, and transfer to the empty envelope, at the end of the experiment.

They all fared the same on the tests, though participants in the dim room cheated more than their counterparts. While those in the well-lit room reported an average of 7.8 correctly solved matrices, the dim-room students indicated an average of 11.5 correct responses. That resulted in a $1.85 difference in payout.

In another experiment students wore sunglasses or clear glasses while playing a money game in which they had to allocate some portion of $6 to a random stranger. Those wearing shades acted more selfishly, giving significantly less to partners, an average of $1.81, than did those with clear glasses who gave about $2.71 to partners.

Another round of this game with a different group of students showed that participants with sunglasses felt a greater sense of anonymity than those with clear glasses. For instance, the sunglass wearers were more likely to agree on average with statements such as: I was anonymous during the study; my choice went unnoticed during the study. And they were more likely to disagree with: I was watched during the study; and others were paying attention to my behavior during the study.

Can this be true?  We,  in countries where there are 4 sesons, depression is not unusual during dark months, winter days because we need sunshine.

This is actually related to your melatonin levels. Melatonin decreases in cases of high light (in the day) and rises dramatically at the night.

In cases of winter months were one does not see enough light or sun, melatonin levels will be abnormal.
(Release is inhibited by daylight, and at nighttime, levels rise dramatically; so the abnormality here is due to winter effect; due to the reduction of sun light in northern states in winter, this leads to a decreased inhibition of melatonin levels due to the increased night time/darkness).

This leads to S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Depression).

The treatment we recommend for this is adjusting melatonin levels with light therapy, and not pills..

This is not just fact, but medical law. :)

Sun light is correlated and related to melatonin levels. Melatonin is not related to sleeping, but rather to feelings of sleepiness.

Its production is in the pineal glands and directly in the retinas of the eyes.

Its release is inhbited by daylight and at nighttime, levels rise dramatically.

Any alteration of the inhibitory pathway (daylight), will lead to an abnormal increased level of melatonin.

Excessive melatonin levels can lead to depression. Hence the manifestation of S.A.D.

Hence the high rates of suicides in northern nations/states; particularly in Europe during winter.

Did you know dogs and cats do no have darkness.? During night time their pupils turn bigger so that they can see in the dark.

Because the Lord God is Great, He Created the Day and the Night.

Man's inability to function due an abnormality of light and dark is manifest of our need in equilibrium.

For God Created All Things to be in Equilibrium.

Night and Day.

Good and Evil.

My Lord My God. Author and Creator. Lord of All.

Alot of patients do not understand the mechanism of action of the biochemistry of hormones. Mao na they are so quick to have a 'quick fix'. Pills and pills.

Mo demand ra sila ug antidepressants and anxiolytic drugs. Na. Mura.

Instead of light therapy, which is quite feasible and cheap and healthy, mo demand sila sa ilang psychiatrist to be given antidepressants and antipsychotics such as Fluoxetine or more SSRIs like clomipramine and imipramine or clonazepam.

Ang result: they have flat effect and are incapacitated.

Good to know that you are proactive. SAD understandable considering the winter situation and the location one lives in.

S.A.D is understandable because of the winter season.

When I was in undergraduate in Allegheny College, I would be affected by the cold and the winter season.

And also for me, being Philippine-born, I am used to the hot climate of the tropics of Bohol.

It is not my natural environment man gud to live in such a cold weather as in Pennsylvania.

Mo angay jud ko sa init.
