advertisement People Quiz By Jain E. «ilM«H How Mueh Do Your Fears Inf luenee You? TRUE OR FALSE: People who have the most to live for have the greatest fear of dying. (See number 5) TRUE OR FALSE? 1. Your reaction to a threatening social situation reveals a lot about your personality. 2. A fearful, anxiety-ridden person splurges on life insurance. 3. If you fear the opposite sex, there isn't much you can do about it. 4. Fear makes every ache or pain hurt more than it otherwise would. 5. People who have the most to live for have the greatest fear of dying. 6. If you're afraid of things that pose no actual threat to your safety or well- being, you're neurotic. ANSWERS 1. True. Psychologists at a leading university made a study of two types of people: those who reacted to threatening social situations with fear and anxiety, and those who took such confrontations in their stride and were not intimidated. People in the first category fell into two types: The over- excitable type, who speak and work rapidly and make many errors; and the inhibited type, who tend to freeze up under a threatening situation and become passive and slow-moving, as though their faculties were partially paralyzed. On the other hand, those people who were not intimidated shared these characteristics: They were not impulsive, but given to acting thoughtfully and deliberately. They were more tenacious, more goal- oriented, and more persevering in overcoming obstacles. They were also more vigorous and less subject to depression and fatigue than those in the first group. 2L Ffl/jc-according to a recent University of California study which showed that fearful, anxious people tended to have a slightly adverse attitude toward purchasing life insurance, By way of explanation, it's suggested that the higher-anxiety individual is reluctant to talk about, think about, or even admit to himself that he is fearful. 3. False. Studies have demonstrated that fear of the opposite sex increases when members of the opposite sex are avoided, and decreases when an individual forces himself to socialize with members of the opposite sex. The effectiveness of this remedy (psychologists term it "desensitization") has been demonstrated by university studies which show that fear of the opposite sex can be resolved in a remarkably short time if, instead of avoiding socializing with mixed company, a person will make a point of cultivat- mgit. 4. True. Psychological studies that examined the influence of various emotional states on pain, by using a special device to measure pain thresholds, have shown that fear lowers your pain threshold appreciably, making every type of pain—headache, stomachache, toothache, backache, etc.—hurt far more than it would otherwise. 5. False. Studies conducted at two leading universities have shown that people whose lives are the most rewarding, "who reported a high purpose and meaning in their life, tended to fear death less and to have a positive and accepting attitude toward it." 6. False. As a leading British psychiatrist observes in summing up the findings of wide-scale studies in a treatise on "Fears and Phobias": Most people have fears of one kind or another that, unless they approach the proportions of a full-blown phobia, are perfectly normal. These may include "mild fears of heights, elevators, darkness, airplanes, spiders, mice, snakes, and taking examinations, as well as superstitions such as fears of houses said to be haunted by ghosts, of walking under ladders, |r|BH and similar taboos." liUI FAMILY WEEKLY. September 16, 1973 The Lazy Man's Way to Riches 'AlMf PMffo Art Tf Busy Imriag 9 U¥ki§ f* Alair* Any AIMMX' I used to work hard. The 18-hour days. The 7-day weeks. But I didn't start making big money until I did less—a lot less. For example, this ad took about 2 hours to write. With a little luck, it should earn me 50, maybe a hundred thousand dollars. What's more, I'm going to ask you to send me 10 dollars for something that'll cost me no more than 50 cents. And I'll try to make it so irresistible that you'd be a darned fool not to do it. After all, why should you care if I make $9.50 profit if I can show you how to make a lot more. What if I'm so sure that you will make money my Lazy Man's Way that I'll make you the world's most imusual guarantee? And here it is: I won't even cash your check or money order for 31 days after I've sent you my material. That'll give you plenty of time to get it, look it over, try it out. If you don't agree that it's worth at least a hundred times what you invested, send it back. Your uncashed check or money order will be put in the return mail. The only reason I won't send it to you and bill you or send it C.O.D. is because both these methods involve more time and money. And I'm already going to give you the biggest bargain of your life. Because I'm going to tell you what it took me 11 years to perfect: How to make money the Lazy Man's Way. O.K.—now I have to brag a little. I don't mind it. And it's necessary—to prove that sending me the 10 dollars... which I'll keep "in escrow" until you're satisfied... is the snuurtest thing you ever did. I live in a home that's worth $100,000. I know it is, because I turned down an offer for that much. My mortgage is less than half that, and the only reason I haven't paid if bff is because my Tax Accountant says I'd be an idiot. My "office," about a mile and a half from my home, is right on the beach. My view is so breathtaking that most people conunent that they don't see how I get any work done. But I do enough. About 6 hours a day, 8 or 9 months a year. The rest of the time we spend at our mountain "cabin." I paid $30,000 for it — cash. I have 2 boats and a Cadillac. All paid for. We have stocks, bonds, investments, cash in the bank. But the most important thing I have is priceless: time with my family. And I'll show you just how I did it— the Lazy Man's Way—a secret that I've shared with just a few friends 'til now. It doesn't require "education." I'm a high school graduate. It doesn't require "capital." When I started out, I was so deep in debt that a lawyer friend advised bankruptcy as the only way out. He was wrong. We paid off our debts and, outside of the mortgage, don't owe a cent to any man. It doesn't require "luck." I've had more than my share, but I'm not promising you that you'll make as much money as I have. And you may do better; I personally know one man who used these principles, worked hard, and made 11 million dollars in 8 years. But money isn't everything. It doesn't require "talent." Just enough brains to know what to look for. And I'll tell you that. It doesn't require "youth." One woman I worked with is over 70. She's travelled the world over, making all the money she needs, doing only what I taught her. It doesn't require "experience." A widow in Chicago has been averaging $25,000 a year for the past 5 years, using my methods. What does it require? Belief. Enough to take a chance. Enough to absorb what I'll send you. Enough to put the principles into action. If you do just that—nothing more, nothing less— the results will be hard to believe. Remember—I guarantee it. You don't have to give up your job. But you may soon be making so much money that you'll be able to. Once again—I guarantee it. The wisest man I ever knew told me something I never forgot: "Most people are too busy earning a living to make any money." Don't take as long as I did to find out he was right. I'll prove it to you, if you'll send in the coupon now. I'm not asking you to "believe" me. Just try it. If I'm wrong, all you've lost is a couple of minutes and an 8-cent stamp. But what if I'm right? Sworn Statement: "I have examined this advertisement.
