Study Finds: Alone

Study Finds: Alone

When it comes to seeking solitude, many people often blame mental health issues as an underlying cause. But a new study finds that being alone has its benefits too, particularly when it comes to people looking for a surge of creativity. [ reference article below ]


So – Study Finds is really saying they don’t know and want it all every-which-way. Such things are normally titled a mess.

That said, God not only stated but created man not to be alone.

The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” (Genesis 2:18)

And God, being well, God, ought to know that man and woman are not created to be alone. Whether a woman is a help-mate or not, that is a different matter altogether. And to be fair, because one always has to be fair, a man has to step up and in spite of all odds be a man.

Bonus:

Naturally like so many “studies” the conclusions are all a-mash. Being alone is different than solitude from time to time and so on. But never look to the world for full wisdom.

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. (Colossians 2:8)

I can point you to Him who has all the answers if you desire – nay – didn’t think so.

(studyfinds.org)—When it comes to seeking solitude, many people often blame mental health issues as an underlying cause. But a new study finds that being alone has its benefits too, particularly when it comes to people looking for a surge of creativity.

Researchers at the University of Buffalo interviewed 295 privacy-valuing individuals who reported a variety of reasons for their tendency to spend a lot of time alone, ranging from feeling fear or anxiety around others to preferring to use spare time working on a craft.

Just because you prefer to be alone doesn’t mean you’re depressed. A new study finds that being anti-social from time to time is linked to creativity.

Although research has traditionally suggested that excessive time alone can be unhealthy, some seclusive pursuits, such as trying to connect to nature or get a better sense of self, can be constructive, the researchers found.
