Butterflies in My Mind

Butterflies in My Mind

I wonder if planning is part of the personality of creative people. I planned to write a buzz on another topic till my eyes froze on a tweet that read as in the image below, along with my response to the comment:


Having tweeted my comment, I found myself thinking about butterflies and their role in our lives. First, the common saying β€œI have butterflies in my stomach” popped up. This is a colloquial expression meaning that you have a nervous feeling in the stomach. If you do and this nervousness is intense then many people may take a β€œneutralizing” action. This may explain why 62% of great lovers. In a survey of over 1,300 people weΒ conducted with Ashley Madison, we found that 62 percent of people in relationships get strong butterflies in their stomach or feel excited at the idea of flirting with someone else at least once a year. And ifΒ you're not part of the 62 percent, well... there's a pretty good chance your partner is. These results are in accordance with what I said before that excessive love might make the lover a controller of the beloved one. Both of them- the loved and the lover- may feel they have butterflies in their stomach and so may flirt.

One other idea that crossed my mind is the symbolic value of chaos that butterflies offer us. β€œThe Butterfly Effect” is a great example of what I mean. Interestingly, butterflies don’t just produce the shape of complexity and chaos being themselves extremely uncontrollable. Here is the dilemma- the girl might be like a butterfly that is uncontrollable while her lover tries to control her! It is an impossible dream controlling the uncontrollable.

Third idea is understanding personalities from the color we get attracted to. Butterflies carry the main personality colors that people have been researching. The idea started first True ColorsΒ is a personality profiling system created by Don Lowry in 1978.Β It was originally created to categorize four basic learning styles using the colors blue, orange, gold and green to identify the strengths and challenges of these core personality types These colors were extended and modified later such as using six colors of are orange, red, yellow, purple, blue and green and some variations of them.

I thought that we may know a person by his preferences to what color h/s of a butterfly falls to. However; I discovered that this idea was explored by Bright Side. I kept repeating to myself β€œtell me what butterfly you like so that I may tell you who you are”.

I decided to take a color personality test to figure who I am. I used Full Spectrum Success and the results I obtained are as follows: Blue (51%), followed by red (26%), yellow (15%0 and green (7%). Red means I am honest and sensitive, which indeed I am. Blue means I am a creative soul. I hope I am.

If you find my ideas are chaotic and uncontrollable, then it is the butterflies that are playing in my mind.

Creative people create the dots (scattered ideas) and then connect the dots. You are one Claire L Cardwell. I appreciate your comment and sharing the buzz.

Fascinating buzz Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee - I've often been accused of having a 'butterfly brain' as during conversations I flit from one subject to another bewildering my friends until I reveal why they are interconnected...

A great reminder of transformation Zacharias \ud83d\udc1d Voulgaris. You know you inspire me with the idea. It is about how tiny things such as a butterfly may give us the biggest lessons in learning how to live.

Great post! I'd add that butterflies are a good symbol of transformation, starting from humble caterpillars to creatures that can roam the skies.

No, I didn't miss it because I favored it. Your article is so good and tackles different aspects of butterflies and the lessons they teach us for better living and growing. I shared your post because sometimes there is gold in old buzzes such as yours.

Dear David Navarro L\u00f3pez- thank you for your explanation. I believe the causes are more than one and they feedback to each other. I will check very soon the link to the youtube. This sounds very interesting.

This is an outstanding comment dear Clau Valerio wrote " It is joy to follow your mental perambulations". I wonder what words he would use to describe your comment. It is simply filled with great insights such as: "All of these traits can be seen symbolically as ideas to help humans become more successful in their own lives". You give by examples explanations for your statement such as: The ability to delay fertilization until conditions are beneficial allows your species to survive. How many businesses need to understand the depth of this analogy. This is just one example of your very deep comment. What I enjoyed extremely is "We have to get rid of the old before we can enter the new:. Yes, we need to change the skin of our thinking because when we grow we have new needs that can't be met with the old style of thinking. Your comment is so precious and you may consider very soon expanding it into a wonderful buzz.

Thank you for such a scientific explanation of why we feel nervous and have nausea sometimes when we are nervous my dear Clau Valerio., Now, I understand why say we have butterflies in our stomachs. This is a wonderful explanation. I thank you also for sharing the buzz.

"62 percent of people in relationships get strong butterflies in their stomach or feel excited at the idea of flirting with someone else at least once a year." It would be interesting to find out the real motivation behind this excitement. Maybe is not as romantic as one can think. In the other hand, what is about the other side of this flirting? Ray Charles describes it very well here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aw-dHOif8jU

Dear Jerry- to say that I am only moved and encouraged by your comment is an underestimation. It is equally my joy to read your mind-provocative buzzes. I am grateful to you my friend.

And your comment made me feel superbly joyful John Rylance. I love the lyrics. I smiled reading "Love makes your heart feel strange inside". That time the strange attractor wasn't discovered. Now, I say loves creates strange attractors in our hearts.

These lines are from Dolly Parton's Love is like a butterfly. The multicoloured moods of love are like its satin wings Love makes your heart feel strange inside It flutters like soft wings in flight Love is like a butterfly a rare  and gentle thing. On a sunny day these lyrics and your post has given me a good feeling.  Thanks.

As important as discovering the core identity it proves to be challenging for most people. You developed the right techniques for this. I recall your visual discovery of such core personality dear friend. Maybe you consider again in a new buzz the importance and methods employed in discovering the core personality.
