Are You a Cat Person or a Dog Person? [infographic]

Forget baby fever. I have a serious case of animal fever. The same thing happened to me about a year ago when I got my bunny Bella. Don’t get me wrong, I love my rabbit. She is absolutely the most adorable thing I have ever owned. I just want another friend, and for her to have a friend. While the obvious choice is to get another rabbit, they won’t always bond together. I know for a fact that Bella likes dogs, but I can’t decide what I prefer.

Have you ever wondered if you’re more of a dog person or a cat person? Did you know your personality, education, certain preferences and even where you live influence which you care more for? For instance, cat people are more likely to be introverts while dog people are more likely to be extroverted. Women are more likely to own cats, and students are more likely to own dogs. A lot of these statistics seem fitting, especially based on the personality types of most dogs and cats I’ve come across. I think the most interesting category of differences is how people use or view technology.

After discovering this infographic, I feel no closer to making a decision on what animal I should get next. Unfortunately, I identify equally with a lot of the characteristics for both types, particularly those concerning personality. Since I can’t decide between a cat and a dog, I guess I’ll just have to get both.

How To Sell Without Selling [infographic]

Don’t overlook this one just because you’re not a salesman. Of course any type of business major should know these things, but unless you’re living in a straw hut on a remote island then you have something to gain from these statistics.

There’s been a recent trend where publications think that good journalism is using blanket generalizations to take shots at millennials. I’m not trying to dig that same hole because I honestly don’t have enough arrogance to fill it. I will say however that I am very certain that if there’s one thing that sets Generation Y apart from the rest, it’s their exposure to advertising. Your typical 20-year-old can smell a conventional sales pitch from a mile away and companies have been perpetually changing the way they market their product to combat this increase in buyer awareness.

Advertising will continue to get slicker, smarter, and more subtle. It’s your responsibility as a consumer to pay attention to the trends so that you don’t get suckered into buying a blender that can only make salad dressing, complete with a promotional set of priceless bicentennial silver coins cast with a brilliant side profile of Keanu Reeves’ face. To end on a serious note here, if you come across any coins like the ones previously described please shoot me an email because I would happily buy two blenders if it means I could just touch such a beautiful piece of legal US tender.

Super Mario Flower Power [Infographic]

May 11, 2014 |  by  |  Gaming  |  1 Comment

If there’s one thing in this world that will appease the inner-child in me, it’s the Super Mario video game series. There is just something about these games that make them so brilliant that it makes me giddy every time I see those little plumbers jumping about. It’s pretty crazy that a concept as simple as getting from point A to point B via hopping on monsters heads, gaining different power-ups, and coin collecting makes for compelling gameplay even to this day. What’s even more remarkable, there have been 20 plus Mario games released and they haven’t missed a step along the way! Each of these games is worth playing (some more than others) countless times with friends or by yourself.

This infographic not only goes through the history of the various games that Mario and his friends have undergone, but also shows some of the various flower power-ups throughout the series (makes sense once you realize that a florist company sponsors the infographic). Most of the flowers listed here are from the past 10 years, so it’s not really a good representation of power ups throughout the lineage; but it’s whatever. It’s still a cool timeline of an incredible series of games that I hope continues with excellence in the future. Now someone buy me a Wii U so I can play Super Mario 3D World!

It’s not taboo to hear about the body issues American women face every day. From body shamming, to the constant re-occurring Proactive commercials, companies have capitalized off of womens’ insecurities.

A common insecurity women face other than the size and shape of their body’s is their skin. From a simple blemish, to all the way to vitiligo, women have to worry about everything. The pressure women face to maintain not only a lean frame, but a flawless face is truly a growing problem.  

A study by Noxema revealed how women truly feel about their face, and the results were upsetting. A startling 25% of women surveyed state that they would give up sex for a month in replacement of clear skin! Today’s infographic visually lays out common skin care woes women face, and some saddening statistics that the Noxema study found, not to mention some simple tips for healthy skin. Enjoy! [via]

5 Types of Extreme Hoarders [infographic]

Hoarders are no laughing matter. Being labeled as a Hoarder can cause extreme pain and embarrassment. The worst hoarders are afraid to invite people into their homes, and sometimes can’t even enter a room because it is so packed with objects.

No one makes the choice to become a hoarder; it is a slow accumulation that can be onset by a variety of factors. Often times a tendency to hoard is caused by depression, anxiety and generally high levels of perfectionism. People who hoard also appear to have difficulties processing information and could potentially have ADHD. Hoarders have a knack for attaching human like quality to their objects. Hoarder feel safer when around their hoard and in turn they literally grieve the loss of any object. People who hoard often hold beliefs about the necessity of not wasting objects or losing opportunities that are represented by objects.

Hoarding is a habit that can potentially be as destructive as an addiction. Although hoarding is not an addiction like drugs, the compulsive behaviors that can be caused hoarding is related to addiction. There are no medicines that can cure hoarding or coax the hoarder out of the habit, the only successful treatment is family support and perhaps therapy.

Any hoarders can take the first steps of gaining their life back through hiding all of their object in a storage unit. This provides having the comfort of knowing they still own 5,000 rubber ducks, but potentially being able to realize that there is no need for them in the near future.
