The Best Zombie Movie Ever: But It’s Not About Zombie, It’s About Human Nature

Asian movies are seldom nominated for Oscars. Yet, there are a lot of hidden gems. One of them in recent months is a Korean zombie thriller called Train to Busan. So far it has grossed $87.5 million worldwide and has set multiple records in different places in Asia like Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, etc. What made it an unstoppable force? Unlike ordinary zombie movies, this one is not about zombie actually. It’s about human nature. It triggers a lot of questions that you normally won’t ask yourself: What would you do when you’re in danger? Who would you take care first? Your loved one? Yourself? Or a stranger? What if you can only choose one person to save? And all the answers of these questions would reflect a lot, about the person, and also the society. When it really happens, you might just become so shocked by your own immediate reaction. After all we only know one’s true colors when disasters come. Needless to doubt, this movie is great for its intense plot and overwhelmin

7-Year Itch? Should Be 4-Year Itch Actually

Does 7-year itch really exist or not? When couples who’ve been many years together and break up, people often become so shocked and would attribute that to 7-year itch. “Oh…how come? They’ve been so sweet together! I just can’t believe that…Maybe it’s 7-year itch…” It’s always a pity to see promising couples to break up. It’s like forcing you to accept the truth that nothing lasts long. But is it really a phenomenon we can’t avoid? Or, it’s just an excuse? 7-year itch is partly truth Helen Fisher, a biological anthropologist at Rutgers University, did a project to see if 7-year itch really exist or not. She found that although the median duration of marriage was 7 years, most of them divorced at the 4th year [1] . ▲The peak is at the 4th year Image credit: Statistics New Zealand By coincidence, another research shows similar results. This time the researcher Dr. Larry A. Kurdek, studied more than 500 couples to see the trend of their marital satisfaction over the years. Th

Your Attractiveness Affects Your Love Life? It's How You Respond To Life That Counts More

Do you constantly show your love and affection to your significant other? Or do you only express your feelings of love when your partner expresses theirs to you first? A lot of people seem to believe that their personalities and looks play a big role in their love lives. You’re not alone. When striking out in the dating world, it’s not uncommon to think something is wrong with the way you look or that you may have a few personality flaws. However, it’s how you respond to life that makes a much bigger difference. When I changed the way I looked at life and the way I chose to live, my love life transformed. Whether we want to admit it or not, love is something we all need. S ome of us can be more focused on receiving love rather than giving it. You may or may not know this, but love can be proactive or reactive. For an explanation about what this means, keep reading. What’s the difference? Proactive people are ready to go out and make things happen. They decide what they want and

4 Ways Introverts Nail Job Interviews Without Pretending To Be Extroverted

If you’re an introvert like me, you probably find interviews nerve-wracking, frustrating, or even torturous. We truly know that we’re as capable as our extroverted peers. But the truth is that desirable job are taken by them. One after another. This scenario may be familiar to you. You’re in the interview room with three other candidates to compete for your dream job. From the vibes and the body languages of your opponents, you can sense that they’re typical extroverts. They look confident without the slightest sign of anxiety, as if they were having a gathering with their old friends. But you just feel uncomfortable in this unfamiliar environment. Just the thought of interacting with a group of new people already makes you feel drained. You force yourself to wear a smile and convince yourself that you’re the best actor in the world. Pretending to be extroverted for the following hour is just a breeze for you. Right? The group discussion starts. Candidate A takes the lead to throw o
