The opening had way better visuals.
Digimon: It’s way more intense. You have kids falling from the sky, digivolving, digital coding, and a creepy-ass monster overseeing the world that foreshadows all the darkness in the show.
Pokémon: It’s cliché because it’s too cute and happy.
All Digimon talk, and Pokémon only has Meowth.
Digimon: These faithful companions can actually communicate with you in human languages.
Pokémon: The only thing these creatures can say is an iteration of their name.
Digivice came in colors and had more purposes than the Pokédex.
Digimon: The Digivice not only created a connection between the digidestined and the Digimon, but it also helped the Digimon evolve, made bad Digimon good, it was a tracker, and it granted access to the Digiworld.
Pokémon: The Pokédex is the Google for Pokémon and that’s it.
Evolution was not permanent and you didn’t have to train for it.
Digimon: If you like Agumon more than Graymon then you don’t need to worry because your Digimon can evolve and devolve as it pleases.
Pokémon: If you like Pikachu more than you like Raichu, well then, you are screwed because once your Pokémon evolves there’s no going back.
Characters had more depth to them and you could identify with more than just three.
Digimon: There are at least seven main characters that you can pick from to be your favorite. Each one is different and you can relate to one more than the other.
Pokémon: You only have three main characters and that’s it. Variety is better.
The characters were not selfish and had meaning to their actions.
Digimon: The characters were actually fighting against evil to save the Digiworld and the planet Earth.
Pokémon: Ash is just a 10-year-old kid that wants to collect all the badges and catch all the Pokémon.Via 24/7 Bebenta Sa'yo
Anger Helps In Negotiations (If It’s Real)
Negotiating is all about being levelheaded and outsmarting your opponent, right? Not entirely. All of our interpersonal interactions function on an emotional level as well as an intellectual one. Research shows that sometimes getting mad can help your case. People are programmed to be cautious around someone who is angry. Therefore, it can make the person whom you’re haggling with more cooperative if you get upset—they’ll try to give you stuff to appease you. However, there are a few caveats to all of this. First of all, this usually only works with Europeans and Americans. Asian cultures find displays of anger during negations to be rude, so blowing your lid may hurt your case. Second, if you do get angry, it has to be real anger. If the guy opposite you thinks you’re faking it, they’ll actually increase their own demands. Researchers say that faking anger erodes trust. If they find out that you’re trying to game them, they’ll be less cooperative.
Anger Can Help Your Career
People who let their anger out report having more fulfilling careers and lives than people who keep their emotions bottled up. That dovetails really well with another study that shows that if you’re angry, people think you deserve more status and a higher salary … but only if you’re a man. It has been shown that both men and women believe that angry men should be rewarded. On the other hand, both sexes agree that angry women are incompetent. This even works when you’re interviewing for a job, and it doesn’t matter what level the position is. If you’re a dude with an attitude, you’re in. According to the findings, “the average salary assigned to the angry man was nearly $38,000 while the angry woman received an average of only $23,000.” There is an upside for women, though: If they explain why they’re angry, people tended to judge them more fairly. But if men explain why they’re angry, they’re seen as weak.
Angry People Live Longer
The impassioned Italians and hotheaded Spanish live almost two years longer than the comparatively calm English, and that may well be because expressing anger is good for your health. Research now suggests that people who hold in their anger and frustration are more likely to drop dead. Internalizing your rage elevates your pulse, which can drive up your blood pressure. High blood pressure can increase your risk of all kinds of diseases—everything from heart disease to cancer. On the other hand, people with chronic anger can also develop coronary disease. It’s moderate anger that you need to shoot for. The researchers concluded that “men with moderate levels of anger expression had nearly half the risk of nonfatal heart attacks and a significant reduction in the risk of stroke compared to men with low levels of anger expression.” So be a little angry—it’s good for your heart.
