Survey : Relationship between personality traits and athleticism in the UK and India

Hi guys! My friend from the University from Edinburgh needs helps for her dissertation.

Her research topic for the dissertation revolves around relations between personality traits and athleticism in the UK and India, comparing and contrasting them. Research on personality characteristics of athletes is a fairly unexplored sphere in most eastern countries like India, especially when compared to countries such as the UK where there is considerable literature on the subject. This will be a pioneering study in the field, seeking to undertake an overall comparison of personality characteristics of athletes in India and the U.K.

If you decide to participate, you will be asked to complete surveys about athleticism and personality. Students in the University of Edinburgh’s introductory Psychology course will receive course credit for participating; other participants will not receive any compensation. However, your participation will be a valuable addition to her research. Findings could lead to a greater understanding of cross-cultural differences in the personality characteristic of athletes, thus helping to further encouragement not just of overt athleticism but of exercise participation for fun, fitness, and overall health and well-being. You may find answering some of the questions interesting and the study can be completed from the comfort of your home. It will require approximately 20 minutes of your time.

Dealing with Acne 3.0 : Tea Tree Oil

You know those breakouts which pop up randomly (SPECIALLY before an occasion!)? It gets SO annoying to keep getting your skin treated and use chemical based products because come on – the skin on your face is super sensitive and we want to take the utmost care of it.

I got introduced to Tea Tree Oil a couple of months ago.

A tiny history lesson on it :

Its a natural antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal and antiseptic! It helps in removing dead skin cells and prevent acne by penetrating sebaceous glands. Acne happens due to oily skin and it helps in keeping that balance. It’s used for many things like treating dandruff, yeast infections, toenail fungus, etc. In this post, we are only focussing on treating acne.


How I use it :

One drop on the zit. That’s it. Please do not use it all over your face. One drop on the zit every night works the best. It can make your skin really dry if you overdo it.

Results :

I’ve experienced results in a day as well as 4 days. What a life saver!

Why I suggest it :

Because I’m going to keep putting up whatever has worked for on me for acne and shower the secret knowledge about you. LOL. On a serious note, it sucks to have acne and if you can take some measures to avoid and moreover get rid of it then why not. Moreover, going natural is always the best way!

Brands I’ve used : I’ve used Nyassa before and am currently using Aroma. The Body Shop is good too but costs 3x the normal price. A 20ml bottle should last months or even years, because you’re just using it drop by drop!


Best of luck and let me know how it works for you! 🙂
