Time Out New York posted the below listing, which awkwardly appeared to include an internal memo justifying the open role rather than the public-facing description for job applicants. It reads more like a novella in which the protagonist, Melissa, has fallen victim t ...

Infidelity can be forgiven -- but at a cost
Infidelity is very common. At least 20 per cent of couples - and perhaps many more, depending on where you set the limit - are unfaithful to their spouse. Being forgiven for infidelity is simply not easy. But many people whose spouse forgives them mistrust the signals and do not really believe that they are forgiven, according to a new study from NTNU.

Group dynamics researchers who study emergent leaders have found consistently that extraverts are more likely to rise as leaders than introverts. And the reason, new research suggests, is that introverts don t expect to enjoy being in charge ev ...

Biology Beats Calories in Matters of Weight
Calorie intake and energy expenditure do not explain body weight to the extent that scientists once thought, researchers write in an article in Perspectives on Psychological Science .
