We all need our personal space, because it feels good to get away for awhile or have our desks organized the way we like, while sipping from this astronaut mug. But because our brains are hard wired to take our immediate environment into account, people merely standing too close can cause us to have a variety of physical reactions to their presence. Theamygdalais activated when your personal space is invaded, and is the primary part of the brain which monitors our personal space, responding to input from thepremotor cortex and the parietal cortex. Interestingly, this is the same part of the brain that regulates fear. This forces us to deal with invasions of our personal space in a variety of ways, often through “dehumanizing” those around us since it isn't socially acceptable to just dash away. You can see it in people avoiding eye contact or pretending others are inanimate objects, at least until they can escape the crowd. Our personal space bubbles are also avariety of sizes, often based on upbringing, culture, and even quirks of local society.
Having someone invade your personal space for whatever reason is rarely welcome, and from a subway to a coworker that's always whispering in your ear, personal space invaders are usually going to be part of your life to some extent. You can do your best to scoot away, but sometimes you just have to stand there and deal with the intrusion. There was a time once where you could keep those invaders from your personal space far more easily, and even today you could play on your phone while ignoring all those inanimate objects around you ;)
These little guys may only want love, but they're still invading your personal space. Engage your friends with this vintage throwback to classic video games and modern space exploration on your own astronaut mug, all while casually reminding people to give you some personal space. Amusing, attractive, retro. Just don't be surprised if it attracts crowds, though hopefully people will get the hint...and give you your personal space!
