Any normal person who shares normal worries of daily life expects to influence the state of their moods and stress. And coping with stress may accumulate medical fees and if the problem doesn't go away could lead to the development of long term depression that in turns could lead to mental illness.
A parent for example who is concerned about the security of his/her home for the safety of his/her children is worried and stressful. During a period of mortgage market uncertainties, you can expect a parent enduring stress to seek security measure for the home.
And seeking to stabilise the home may involve active participation in social and political activities. However, the risk of securing the home for the children could lead a parent stagnated in stress and depression. But on the constructive site, he/she could transform into a community leader and more.
A mortgage market that is stabilised by social objectives may not depart from the reach of the population.
And history suggests that ordinary folks who became political leaders are backed by social capital to have moved on to change their local circumstances for the better.
Stress can either be a powerful stimulant for positive motivation, or a perilous catalyst for stagnation.
For one, we know that stress is natural and whether we like it or not, it happens. But how we use stress may be predetermined by our holistic make up.
The connection between stress and either positive stimulation or perilous stagnation is natural to the primary mode of our person. This suggests that a person who tends to be negative will also react in perilous stagnation while a person who tends to be positive would always react in positive stimulations.
(That's an interesting research I haven't done and not going to do for I am only entertaining a hypothesis).
Anyway if the above is true, then it is impossible for stagnant person to think positive as also true of a positive person to think negative. I think that's what they termed 'simplification'.
I once entertained the idea of thriving under pressure; usually of negative pressure like criticism, bullying and harassment. We are also exposed to such ideas as fight back and get even as positive motivations.
Now we are unable to motivate ourselves positively, but are encouraged to motivate ourselves negatively.
At first; the reaction to natural stress stimulates encouragement if a person is positive where a stagnant catalyst is offset by a negative person.
Second; a positive person cannot react negatively where a negative person cannot react positively.
And third; a positive person may not react negatively but would use negative means to achieve his/her positiveness. If so, then a negative person may use positive means to achieve his/her negativeness?
The third premise follows; a positive parent may not be stressful and angry at the housing crisis, but would drive a bulldozer to destroy all the houses. At the same time, a negative parent may be stressful and angry at the housing crisis but would help build all the houses to counter the crisis.
The third premise may be false and absurd, but should a robot be counselling parents then those are the logical traits of behaviour acceptable in a linear world.
It is where the folk on the path of reality stems a linear development. The AI or Material Logic departs from Objective Logic. The mathematical formulae may present a reality that is unreasonable in our human world.
Stress therefore is a natural and powerful source for motivation to achieve social objective purposes.
When a retailer deceptively sells you a faulty computer and you realised this after a few stops and starts attempts, one would become angry while experiencing a sensation in the stomach. He/she may swear and curse and even ring up the retailer to abuse the hell out of them.
The sight of the computer reminds him of the feelings and would linger until the computer is either fixed or returned.
Now, contrary to our logical findings, a positive and reasonable person would attempt to find a reasonable resolution.
The link between stress and stimulating positive motivation therefore depends upon the primary mode of mental functioning. The mode filters objective desires from subjective accumulations of the self.
Objective desires are pure principles quantified by work into being; self is accumulations of populous selfish desires.
Objective principles are designed to achieve completeness and responsibilities while populous desires indulge in material happiness.
And this implies that stress is more likely to be triggered by material indulgence than by completeness and responsibility.
A person who indulges in material desires may possess the personality to trigger catalyst stagnation under stress while a person who is intuitive of principles may trigger positive stimulation under stress.
This must be remarkably obvious when enduring economic hardship, injustice, bullying and harassment.
A robot may collect factual data to prepare a responsive profile to a linear unit that is totally contrasted to the same human of his/her social objective being.
I have provided the reasoning to support a survey in providing proof of evidence to the fact that positive motivation is not a result of fear or some other material subjective catalyst, but rather from one who is intuitively objective in quantifying principles into being.
