The Secret Powers of Time

Professor Philip Zimbardo conveys how our individual perspectives of time affect our work, health and well-being. Time influences who we are as a person, how we view relationships and how we act in the world.

The 6 main types of time perspectives are :

  1. Past Positive - Remembering the good old times.
  2. Past Negative - Remembering the bad times.
  3. Present Hedonistic - Wanting to satisfy your immediate urges. Addictions.
  4. Present Deterministic - Thinking that there's no reason to do anything because it's fate. Everything is pre-determined.
  5. Future Oriented - Knowing that planning and the things you do now will help in the future.
  6. Life begins after death - Thinking that your current life is only a transitionary state and that your 'real' life is what starts after you die.

As you can tell, the Zeitgeist Movement is mainly composed of and interested in Future Oriented people. The people who want to make a difference to the current and future world in which we all live in.
