Affectivity


Affectivity is the ability of the individual to react to certain stimuli, whether internal or external, and characterized by feelings and emotions.

Affectivity in the psychological field is a less formal language, leaning towards the colloquial, taking into account that they are those samples of love that a person offers to another or others, including other species such as animals.

In the same way, philosophy has also studied the behavior of the human being from its beginnings and emotions. Science over the years has made great contributions to this issue and has found that the brain plays a very important role in people’s emotions and the effects they can cause on them.

It is very difficult to think about affectivity in a conscious state, in other words an individual cannot decide mentally about it but has to experience it to be able to feel it, in addition, it is impossible to have control over it, since it appears spontaneously through life without any control.

Although it is impossible to control, what can be managed is the way to promote affections, being the decisions that are made of great importance in the life of each individual, generating a feeling of well-being.

Affectivity is very interactive, since a person feels affection for someone, you also feel affection for them, that is, affection is always a direct response to a stimulus, it is very strange when affection is manifested by someone who does not feel anything or is indifferent to that person.
