Regularly sending e-cards with a pet-based theme can have profoundly positive effects on the people who receive them
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) March 10, 2014
Doozy Cards has launched the “Cutest Infographic on the Whole Internet.” Liberally illustrated with photos of puppies, kittens and babies, it carries a serious underlying message. These cute little images, are responsible for triggering what scientists are calling, “Cute Aggression.”
Researchers from the Society for Personality and Social Psychology reported that, when study subjects were confronted with an image of a cute animal, they became aggressive and had a strong desire to “squeeze something.” The SPSP study was based on previous observations that productivity and concentration can be increased by 44% just by looking at these types of images. Pets are known to reduce stress, relieve depression and generally improve relationships with other people.
Another recent scientific study using brain imaging techniques revealed that, when participants looked at images of animals, their brains lit up a region of the brain called the amygdala, and the effect was almost instantaneous. The amygdala plays an important role in how humans behave in response to fear, pain, pleasure and reward.
“The take-home message here,” remarked a Doozy President Chandler Cooke Chandler, “is that regularly sending e-cards with a pet-based theme can have profoundly positive effects on the people who receive them. Everyone here at Doozy, from animators to voiceover artists, simply adore animals. When the results of these scientific studies came out, the idea for the infographic just came naturally."
“Because pets are not tied in to a particular holiday or event on the greetings calendar, pet e-cards are suitable any day of the year. You can send a quick message to anyone you care about and because you message is attached to animation of the cutest pets, you are literally making their day better, according to the research. If you send to a friend at work, with the productivity-boosting effects of images of cute pets, everybody wins, including the employers of both the sender and the recipient.”
