Women's hysteria: a disease or a norm?
A few facts from the history
For the first time the study of hysteria was engaged in the legendaryDoctor Gippokrat, who called this phenomenon from the Latin word "uterus", which means "womb". According to Hippocrates, the uterus is moving around the female body and getting stuck in the organs, causing various feelings and symptoms of the disease.
But the main idea of hysteria was worked out, of courseSame, in the enlightened 20 century. Her study dealt with Freud, Jung. Moreover, almost all specialists involved in the study of the human psyche gave part of their lives to the study of hysteria, but they could not clarify the problem.
Hysteria: is it good or bad?
Even today, every specialist treatsHysteria in its own way. So, some of them consider this state as a deviation from the norm, but the majority of the researchers came to the conclusion that this is a quite useful emotional state.
Especially important is the manifestation of emotions forWomen who are much weaker than men physically, but at the same time must have some other opportunities to influence the environment. Here such a reaction just creates the feeling that before us is a special woman with her own individuality, capable of influencing not only the environment, but also changing her personal state.
In what cases is hysteria manifested?
The study of hysterical states is necessaryBegin to be a child. It turns out that every kid, regardless of his gender, has a so-called hysterical reaction mechanism, which allows him to quickly adapt to the environment and quickly learn it, and most importantly, to receive huge amounts of knowledge. It is hysteria that is one of the mechanisms that gives children the opportunity to receive and process up to 7 years such an array of information that a person can be overpowered from 7 years to the end of life.
Women have a hysterical reaction mechanismFirst of all, it is possible to know the surrounding world without understanding it. If information passes through consciousness, a woman begins to analyze it, then knowledge is acquired in a much smaller volume. That is why hysteria is not a pathology or a sign of a disease of the nervous system.
Of course, most often we rely on everydayHysterical situations, saying that this or that woman is a hysterical woman, a psychopath who can not calmly react to the situation and seek her other, painful methods. Especially such statements we hear from those who observe how a woman expresses her emotions.
But if we consider the situation from the other side, it turns out that hysteria - this is the component of every woman, without which it is difficult to classify among the fair sex.
You saw absolutely rational, not able to show your emotions in public, women, who themselves suffered from this? The truth is, they do not differ much from men.
It turns out that hysterical notes in the character - it's like the difference of personality, which allows a woman to skillfully influence the environment in general, and in particular in men.
There is a hypothesis that in the animal world there isSubstances called pheromones, which attract individuals of the opposite sex. Such zhemehanizmom in human nature can be considered hysteria, which is a kind of tax pheromone, which attracts attention, being skillfully used in communicating with others.
Another question is that there are such women,Who too often and not very skillfully display their hysterical nature, and their communication becomes too tiring. If, however, hysteria manifests itself quite calmly, gently, then it can be associated with the art of women acting on the people around.
Note that in the early 90's, hysteria wasIs excluded from the international classification of diseases, which means that even an overly emotional woman who reacts violently to the situation by medicine is considered adequate. Practice shows that moderately hysterical lady is able to cause a genuine interest in men, while freakish people will get a minimum of attention.
