Positive thinking is often said to improve depression, but research has shown that it does not work for Asians.
Today I will introduce the research.
Psychologists warn that therapies based on positive emotions may not work for Asians
According to research by psychologists at the University of Washington, Western students recovered from depression with positive thinking, but Asian students seemed to see no change.
Regarding this cause, researchers speculate that “the influence of Buddhist teaching on happiness” or “because of the thought of seeing things in Yin-Yang balance”.
I was a little surprised at this study because I don't think Asians are so relative to happiness.
