Isn’t human psychology interesting? The more I study it, the more I like how intricate and tricky our brains are. It seems like you never unquestionably know what your tplot motives are until you start reading about your own brain. Recently, I had to acknowledge the fact that I’m apparently a bit of a control freak. I am also honestly enjoyable at tricking myself with the illusion of control. I found this out the hard way when it came down to terrible air quality in my office! For the past year or so, I have had my own private office at work so that I can manage a large research lab. When I got to my office, I was honestly gleeful to have my own private control unit, and during all of the years that I worked in the lab, it was bitterly cold. I was constantly chilly and shivering when I was trying to do my lab work. The building had an intensive air quality control method which was designed to help with air purification and decontamination. Because the central cooling method was so powerful, there was constantly ice freezing air blasting through every vent! As someone who is naturally cold, I unquestionably didn’t like the abundant A/C every moment of every day. I got into my office for the first time, and instantly knew I wanted to change the control component to compensate for this overpowering cooling system. I turned the temperature up and was much happier when I reported to work each day. Then, the facility director stopped to talk to me the other day. He mentioned that the air quality had been fluctuating, and asked if I noticed it in my office. When I told him about my differing control component settings, he just laughed. He told me that the control component was a dummy. I never had control over the office temperature at all.
