My name is Samy BARNAT.
I dedicated my life to help people to reach Happiness.
On a mission to help people to be happy
You might know that there is one suicide every 40 seconds, so spreading positivity is extremely important to help people to keep a healthy mindset. This has been done across more than 2000 daily posts during the last 6 years on this page. I got countless messages of people telling me that they needed these messages either to learn how to deal with stress and sadness either as a reminder to keep being on the right track.
So much love. ❤️
Independent and multidisciplinary researcher in human sciences
I have been an independent and multidisciplinary researcher in human sciences for 10 years now. Independent and multidisciplinary are two keys words important to understanding my work. Independent research brings outside of the box thinking. A multi-disciplinary background (psychology, politics, economics, philosophy…) gives a rare global vision that many experts lack. Both precious to find global solutions to the global crises we face. Indeed most scientists have been working in silos isolating the different disciplines social and non-social. But the reality is one and all these disciplines interconnected. For example, the science of emotions interacts with the rest of cognition and society to form happy or suffering personalities.
To be happy you need to understand yourself but also society and even broader your ecosystem. Because happiness requires to live in a way that causes no regrets later on. And you can do that only if you have a knowledge broad enough. For example, if you consume anything without worrying about the consequences to find out later that the food you consumed caused you or your kids cancer you will be full of regrets…
An out of the box multidisciplinary education
Concerning my educational background, I have multiple graduations: social sciences especially psychology, philosophy, politics but also engineering. Many people don’t understand the value of philosophy. In your opinion why two philosophers Adam Smith and Karl Marx created the two systems that dominated the modern world? If philosophy has no value? On the contrary, philosophy is the art of interrogating the deepest questions about human life with maximum skepticism to find the most solid foundations possible to live our lives. Any serious scientist also knows that the ancestor of human sciences for thousands of years was philosophy and that a lot of the theories of psychology were taken from philosophy until very recently with the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) inspired by Stoic Philosophy which is in fact a Rational and Cognitive Psychotherapy.
Concerning my degree in engineering, it gave me a unique perspective to combine engineering with human sciences, like others before me also did to be more creative indeed many concepts of psychology are analogies from mechanics: resilience, psychological structures…
