In an event such as the Soccer World Cup, the phenomenon of increased identification with the team and greater national pride has been referred to as the “feel-good effect at mega sports events“. Such events facilitate social connections and have an influence on our emotions: they are sources of joy and frustration, anger and pride, depression and enthusiasm; and ultimately affect what psychologist call the “subjective well-being” – which is, as a key concept in positive psychology, our own appreciation of one’s life in global terms.

If the other is a source of knowledge, the reciprocal is immediate. I am, too, whatever my temporary social position, whatever the ruling that the school institution has pronounced on my account, I, too, am for the others an opportunity for learning. Through my life experience, my professional background, my social and cultural practices, and since knowledge is coextensive with life, I offer knowledge resources to a community. Even if I am unemployed, even if I have no money, even if I do not have a diploma, even if I struggle in a suburb, even if I do not know how to read, I am not "a zero". I am not interchangeable. I have an image, a position, a dignity, a personal and positive value within the Knowledge Space. All humans have the right to be recognized as an identity of knowledge.

For man engaged in bromance-type relationship, homosocial relationships let them experience an elevated emotional stability, enhanced emotional disclosure, social fulfilment, and better conflict resolution, compared to the emotional lives they shared with girlfriends.Bromance is essentially when man openly pronounce love for their bromances and engage in highly intimate behaviors, both emotionally and physically in same sex friendships, "it" happens mainly during social activities such as playing sports, drinking, fixing things or gambling.

The bromance is a very much a concept of the 21st century. It gained ground when the idea of friendships between both heterosexual and homosexual emerged (in response to the mass cultural awareness of homosexuality, especially among Western populations) and when the shadow of guilt and peer ridicule gradually disappeared.

Every generally held idea, every received notion, will be an idiocy, because it has been able to appeal to a majority Every generally held idea, every received notion, will be an idiocy, because it has been able to appeal to a majority

The great defect of people, for Chamfort, consisted in the public’s reluctance to submit its thinking to the rigors of rational examination, and its tendency to rely instead on intuition, emotion, and custom.

One can be certain that every generally held idea, every received notion, will be an idiocy, because it has been able to appeal to a majority,” the Frenchman observed,

Adding that what is flatteringly called common sense is usually little more than common nonsense, suffering as it does from simplification and illogicality, prejudice and shallowness: “The most absurd customs and the most ridiculous ceremonies are ...
