Rainbows in the Mind

[011 Research Review | Hope Series: 2] C.L. Snyder casts human psychology as a spectrum of strength, just like a rainbow is a spectrum of light. It’s a continuum of being, with each possible color connected to all the others. Snyder’s hope theory distinguishes hope as first a cognitive, rather than an emotional, process. Emotional patterns result from hope, but thought patterns cause it.
