Major Take Aways
We love comparing our lives to others.
The feeling of defeat or self doubt when experiencing social rejection comes from the orbitofrontal cortex and has recently been found that in teenage girls especially, there is a source of stronger activity coming from the dorsal anterior cingulate cortex.
Advice for future researchers:
In my research, I found it helpful to keep track of my findings, such as helpful websites with their MLA citation, annotation, and a link attached all in one spot. This was very beneficial to my research process because then that way when looking for certain information you know exactly where it will be instead of playing a guessing game about which link is which. Trust me when I say that the more work you put into your research, in the beginning, it truly makes it so much easier when times become more stressful. I also highly recommend doing most of your research on either google scholar or the SVC library. I never found an unreliable source there, If you are looking for reliable videos on your topic of research I recommend looking for some TED X videos.
