The study of human behavior is often referred to as LIFESTYLE, an evolutionarily-based term originally used by Social Psychology pioneer Wilhelm Reich. According to Reich, LIFESTYLE is a “combination of habit, emotion, knowledge, and role orientation.” LIFESTYLE is the outcome of accumulated information about human behavior over time, which has helped psychologists to construct many descriptions of human behavior, especially relating to emotions and the self. This research also has resulted in many descriptions of different aspects of human behavior. One of these, according to LIFESTYLE Theory, is that there is a relationship between the way in which we think and the way we act.
LIFESTYLE theory is based on the idea that humans are most social when they are in a relationship, and that they only act in aocial ways when they are alone. According to LIFESTYLE Theory, we are social beings because we need others to validate our behaviors and thoughts, to tell us what is in our minds at any given time. Human beings are very closely related to animal species in this way – they both have evolved in the same way, with species bonding together and helping each other in times of distress, as in the case of mothers protecting their young from predators, and children playing together and comforting each other in times of stress. In today’s world, however, human beings have domesticated themselves to a degree that they no longer need these things to validate themselves. In addition, however, human beings have learned to use technology to reinforce their relationships, and to provide themselves with additional layers of security – in other words, they have created a dependency complex based on the idea that they are responsible for maintaining a relationship with others, and they will be hurt if they lose that relationship.
This dependence has created a variety of psychological problems for many people, leading to the rise of LIFESTYLE theories and the like. In order to understand the LIFESTYLE theory, it’s helpful to first understand the basic concept of the Lifestyle Content Network, as depicted in the icon on the right. The lifestyle content network is a social media site that is designed to facilitate sharing of Lifestyle Content by those who are interested in sharing such content – in fact, many people refer to it as the Branding Layer.
The Lifestyle Content Network has several different layers, all of which are designed to curate a wide variety of different aspects of the Lifestyle itself. The curated elements of the Lifestyle are: Reviews of products, videos, photos, audios, articles, podcasts, social media icons, blog posts, website fronts, and various other elements. When you login to the Lifestyle, you are essentially creating a “virtual storefront” where you can visit to browse and buy the different products available on the Lifestyle. The Review layer on the Lifestyle ensures that buyers will be able to read reviews about different products, allowing you to both curate your own personal experiences on the site, as well as to share useful information with others on the site.
The Lifestyle also has a social media component, which allows users to connect to other users of the site. Through their social media icons, users can show their Lifestyle friends what they are currently up to. Additionally, the Lifestyle allows users to connect to other marketers who are interested in doing business on the platform. By being able to do business with others on the platform, marketers are able to create a sense of community for themselves, building a stable customer base that they can draw in through word of mouth. Additionally, marketers can invite their Lifestyle friends to promote on their sites, as well.
The concept of LIFESTYLE is all about fostering a healthy lifestyle, bringing together individuals who want to spend time online together, and creating a sense of community for those who use the site. The Lifestyle is really more of a complete social networking experience than a traditional networking site. The Lifestyle allows its users to combine their virtual lives together, in order to achieve the kind of balanced life that they might only be able to achieve if they were to meet face to face. As far as I’m concerned, this is definitely one of the most exciting social networking platforms out there today. If you have not yet joined up, I encourage you to do so today, because the LIFESTYLE experience is truly one of a kind!
