Men's Health-The Bottom Line!
The art of persuasion has its emotional appeal with a touch of rhetoric. Envy, the sense of discontentment with regard to another's advantages, successes, and possessions; the desire for an advantage possessed by another has an element of the male regard to the female's advantages portrayed in a negative light (the male who envies the female). For example, a male mimics a female's "good" behaviour or qualities to deceive its prey. Mimicry is the similarity of one species to another that protects one or both. They often evolve to share perceived characteristics with another's group and their "models" are obtained via the "selective process," whereas a signal-receiver, the "duped" has been deceived via flattery; is imitation the highest form of flattery?, lets find out!
The deceived signal-receiver is typically another organism. The mimic occurs in the same areas as their models-the success of others is not easily rationalized when they are perceived to be in the same rank. It is an insidious form of identity theft, one whom is identifying with its prey (the victim). In mimesis, the mimic takes on the properties of a specific object or organism, but the one to which is "duped" is indifferent. Mimicry is closely related to camouflage whereas the species resembles its surroundings and want to be/usually are difficult to detect.
The Opportunists: opportunism is the conscious practice of taking selfish advantage of circumstances with little/no regard for principles or consequences that will result. The actions are expedient and guided primarily by self-interested motives. Game Theory provides that the study of mathematical models of conflict and cooperation are between intelligent, rational decision making; i.e., calculating one move to the next.
The individual who holds envy in his heart is conceited and understands nothing. He/She has a morbid interest in controversial issues, questions and disputes certain matters of which he/she has no basic or complex understanding and is ephemera at best. He/She often subjects themselves to the "shiny ball syndrome" where one gets stuck into the uncertainty phase-the breeding ground of envy. The power of intention allows people to be who they are, when someone shows you who they really are, believe them--take note, their "green eyes" are watching you!
