There is so much stuff (stimulus) going on around you that it creates in us a sense of crowding. Not necessarily people, just too much going on around you. *When people feel crowded, we tend to act in an anti-social manner. Sometimes this demonstrates itself by snapping or yelling at other people (outward, aggressive) but other times people turn inward as a defense mechanism to create a bubble or shield around you.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
