Asked in Mental Health
Is furthuring myself from people healthy?
It depends on who you are distancing yourself from. If you have someone in your life that is abusive (physically or mentally) to you, then yes, it would be very healthy to stay away from that person. However, if you are distancing yourself from all people in general, the answer would be no. Everyone needs to have friends. People are social by nature so to isolate yourself could be devastating. Loneliness sets in and it is not a fun place to be. Also, you need interaction with others for many different reasons but most important is the connection that you feel. That's part of what makes us feel good.

Asked in Sociology
Is swearing more common in lower social classes?
There is a widespread public association between swearing and social class, and many of those who criticise the habit most strongly do so because they believe it to be a 'common' and unrefined habit. It may be fair to say that many regular swearers come from anarchic or lower-class backgrounds, and that they swear primarily as a means of distancing themselves from mainstream society and affirming their position as a member of a particular social group. However, many famous swearers do not come from such backgrounds, and even English monarchs and American Presidents have been known to participate in the habit source: http://www.andrewgray.com/essays/swearing.htm

Asked in Relationships, Friendship
Why is your recently married long time friend distancing herself?
Well that's a hard question but the chances are she's not happy with her marriage and doesn't want to tell anyone about it. I'm not saying that's true but it's the only answer I could come up with. You should phone her up and meet, the more you talk the more comfortable she'll be with telling you why she's doing it. While your talking just ask her why she's been distancing herself away from her. I hope things work out between you and your friend.

What is the Bogardus Social Distance Scale?
The Bogardus Social Distance Scale is a psychometric scale created by http://www.answers.com/topic/emory-s-bogardus to empirically http://www.answers.com/topic/measurement people's willingness to participate in social contacts of varying degrees of closeness with members of diverse social groups, such as other racial and ethnic groups, http://www.answers.com/topic/sex-offender, and homosexuals. The scale asks people the extent to which they would be accepting of each group (a score of 1.00 for a group is taken to indicate no social distance): * As close relatives by marriage (score 1.00) * As my close personal friends (2.00) * As neighbors on the same street (3.00) * As co-workers in the same occupation (4.00) * As citizens in my country (5.00) * As only visitors in my country (6.00) * Would exclude from my country (7.00) The Bogardus Social Distance Scale is a cumulative scale (a Guttman scale), because agreement with any item implies agreement with all preceding items. Research shows that the extent of social distancing is decreasing slightly and fewer distinctions are being made among groups.
