By observing humans and pets I discovered that there are many kinds of attitude for coping with life. I figured out four different categories of human behavior:
1. The dominating
2. The submissive
3. The hyperactive
4. The depressed
All this different kind of attitudes or techniques, human beings have developed to survive in the society. I am sure the tribal people just are. They go with the rhythms of nature; they are happy, sad, leading, following etc.
All this techniques are eventually used consciously or unconsciously to manipulate others!
Usually the dominating people are hyperactive, but not always. I noticed that the big boss of the mafia usually is a very depressed person. The submissive people usually are depressed, but not always, sometimes they hide their frustration of not be able to dominate by being depressed and therefore somehow are dominating others. It is a trick and mostly people are not aware of this.
My conclusion is that hyperactivity and depression are one. It is like a coin with two faces. Easily a hyperactive person becomes depressed when he/she is deprived of activity. A depressed person can also become very fanatical and hyperactive if he/she finds a person, technique or medicine that helped him/her to overcome this depression.
The submissive and the dominating person are the same also, because the hierarchical system has created this kind of human behavior. According to your position in society you dominate the people “under” you and you are submissive to the people “above” you.
