The word “bubble” is often used in reference to the idea that society is too insulated from the stresses and anxieties of the modern world.
But is this really true?
Is it possible for us to live our lives in a world that can be seen as a bubble, rather than a stable, well-rounded society?
Psychologists at the University of Cambridge and the University at Buffalo have a new study that suggests that the answer is yes.
Their study is the first to look at the effects of “bubbles” on the quality of life of people in different countries, using data from over 20 million individuals.
This was a study of the social interactions of individuals living in different societies around the world and they used a series of questionnaires to collect data on the degree to which they had experienced or experienced stress, anxiety, and depression.
The results show that people in more “bubbled” countries had lower rates of stress and depression, and they were more likely to have lower levels of social anxiety.
It was also found that in more well-balanced countries, people living in bubbles were more accepting of each other, had lower levels, and had more positive attitudes towards their country.
The study, published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, found that people living within bubbles were much more likely than those living outside to be in relationships, and to be able to relate to others more, with an average of seven times more people in the two groups saying they had friends who are like them.
The findings suggest that the idea of a “bub” may not be entirely accurate.
The study suggests that, despite what we might think, there may be some “haves” and “have nots” within a society, as well as a “middle” of people that is not necessarily labelled as a separate category.
This research is a significant step forward in understanding the relationship between bubbles and wellbeing, says Professor James Sibley, who led the study.
“There is a lot of talk about how we are living in bubble-free societies.
But we are not living in an environment that is free of problems and anxiances.
The bubble is there, and we need to realise it.”
The results of the study suggest that there may well be a “normal” or “healthy” middle range of people, rather like the social class that people define themselves as.
“What’s interesting is that these are the people that we see as the ‘normal’ middle range, but the reality is, if you look at all of the other groups, the middle is often not that different,” Professor Sibleo says.
“If you look across the whole population, we have this middle range where people are really healthy, and there are some people who are really unhealthy, and that’s a shame because the way we try to relate and make sense of these things, we are all living in some sort of bubble.”
“People in bubble society”Professor Sibleys study also found a link between a “higher” social status and a more positive attitude towards one’s country.
This finding is not surprising, as there is some evidence that being wealthy can make people more willing to make good choices in their own lives.
The research suggests that this higher social status can be associated with a “lower” level of depression and anxiety, but that people who live in bubbles do not have the same levels of depression as those in the “normal”, well-ordered society.
“So people in bubble societies are actually quite happy, as they feel that they’re on a high, even though it is a very difficult life,” Professor James says.
This could be a reflection of the fact that social and economic issues are being dealt with in a more “caring” way, he says.
