Free will can carry us far but not infinitely beyond our genetic limits. We can stretch ourselves like a rubber band can stretch, but only so much. It's like Stephen King is never going to be Stephen Colbert, no matter how much he polishes his shot, and Stephen Colbert can never be Stephen King, no matter how much he spends writing once. The tendency of the individual to stimulate turns out to be a special symptom and when you make your own wishes, you can start setting yourself in an environment that is favorable to your own temperament, not stimulating or stimulating, either boring or stressful. By linking to the many wishes of your life and family, you can lose more energy and pleasure.
While people can push the outer limits of their mood, it is often better to automatically position us in our own unique sweet spot. Too much stimulation means you can't think straight, it makes people language, and that's the feeling you've got enough and want to go home. Not enough stimulation is something like a central heating temperature: you are sad, restless, slow, as if it is not enough to happen and time to get out of the house.
It is too simple to say that we should always look for a moderate stimulus. After all, fans of football games are eager for more excitement, but people who visit baths for relaxation seek out low levels and confusingly high levels of stimulation measured in the brain are not always related to how we feel. There are also many different types of stimulation: loud music is not the same as mortar, which is not the same as steering over a meeting. Furthermore, you may be more susceptible to stimulation than others, and some of us may feel more excited than others.
Naturally, we seek our own sweet spot of the best stimulation and we do it without much awareness. It is a powerful process. Imagine sitting well under grapes reading a great novel. This is a sweet spot, but after half an hour you find that you've read the same sentence five times. Now you are stimulated, so you call a friend to go for coffee. In other words, ratchet up your stimulus. When you laugh and talk, you're back, grateful, inside your sweet spots. However, this compatible state only lasts until your friend (who needs more stimulation than you) convinces you to accompany her to a party where you hear loud music, plates of food, alcohol and a room full of strangers. The people seem good enough, but you feel pressured to talk a little about the musician. Now, like you, you've moved away from your sweet spots, except when you're overstated.
The recognition of the role of the stimulus plays in its own actions and emotions are a powerful tool and now you are much better off understanding the activity between too much and too little. Once you have adapted to your temperament with respect to stimulation, you can design your office, home, and social life as long as you are in a sweet place as much as possible. People who live in their sweet spots, the majority of the time gain the ability to stretch when they want, work with people in more useful ways and change the parts of the environment that destroy them.
