P.S: Inspired by OG’s graphs 😀
Today morning while washing the utensils I came up with an interesting fact! ( Ah yes I wash utensils and no we dont have a maid. We dont want them.)
The fact is that human emotions are very much like electronic devices! They reall are!
Don’t believe me? Think about it….
Consider a diode. This is in effect is the relationship we have with our wants. If they are fulfilled we are happy if not.. we are not. [ For those who have been lucky to have not learnt anything about electronics, diode is a switch.. with on and off effect]
And then if its a Zener Diode, its characteristics is like this…
As you can see here, as in zener diode wherein when you increase expectations the reactions to it also increases. However, after a threshold level.. the reactions ( both positive and negative depending upon diff people) also rapidly increases. After a threshhold level, expectations dont evince any response. ( Mostly the place where we give up).
P.S: I have not considered the positive part, which you would see in the wiki link provided. however, if you apply the same analogy, you will see that the threshold for positive reactions is way lower than the negative ….
P.P.S: I was to give the whole list of electronic devices like BJT etc etc.. but (thankfully) I lost interest and this languished in the drafts.. I thought may be I should post it before I delete it some other day.. You are free to skip this one ( intentionally mentioned in the end 😉 )
