It is a time of introspection, of rebuilding the virtuous circle of authentic emotional connection


2020 finds us in a calm moment, a time of constructive peace of mind, a year when all the latest spiritual awakenings have acquired more sense for the people.

Romanians have learned a lot about themselves and about life in general in all these years of “free market adventures”. They have learned how to control their enthusiasm, how to wisely plan their steps, how to inform themselves before making a choice, how to select the best moment to start implementing a plan, how to conserve their energy for constructive relationships and move away from toxic ones, that waste their vibe before time.

They’ve also learned that positive emotions are the most important resource for a good life. And that as long as you enjoy your own life, it does not matter how much money you have, what’s written on your visit card, what kind of people you know or who recognizes your value. You are simply in harmony with yourself, your body, the people around you, those who complete you, motivate you and offer their support. People have learned as well how to avoid or block the toxic zones, how to protect themselves from what threatens their inner balance. Some gave up losing their time in front of TV, others tried to reduce duration in social media, others read more, stayed more time in nature, practiced meditation and reflection, or simply spent quality time in the company of the people they like.  Many changed their job completely in a moment in life many would have thought of retirement.

This tendency to finding their true selves and rebuilding the authentic emotional connection with the others is still under construction. It is like people have planned to take this road and have made only the first, very shy steps. They think twice before investing total trust in a project or in a relationship and they always work with the backup plan in their mind: find the perfect relationship, job, project.  Nothing wrong with this until they become victims of their own skepticism and mistrust, which blocks their discovery journey in its attempt to find perfection of authenticity and real emotion. As a consequence, people might not recognize what they really want in real time, as they are continuously tempted by this world “full of opportunities” and the tiring question “what if … something else”

Luckily there is another aspect that seems to help people continue this introspective trip, irrespective of how hard it is.  Indirectly, of course. This refers to aligning to common life principles that do good to us all. For example, the most dynamic trend this year seems to be the one related to preserving our environment clean and the planet safe. The public discussions in the last year have contributed a lot to amplifying this topic which seemed rather unimportant for Romanians in the past

We could consider this as our national fundamental trait: we are apparently inert until somebody starts communicating to us in an intense and meaningful way. At that moment people rapidly engage in actions with significant social impact, which is like a Romanian superpower

That’s because Romanians are like those very talented kids lacking confidence, that need permanent encouragement and support from outside to tell them how good and valuable they are for helping them meet their true potential

Knowing all these about people, we believe Hunters is our way to encourage the social good, through sociological research. And to finally encourage this inner discovery journey that just started in Romania, as well as in other parts of the world, and that can do so much good to people on a longer run

This yearly project shows us how our future could look like. It also tells us that is our choice what road we chose, of all the possible routes, for being better in our lives.


E timpul sa ne regasim, sa refacem cercul virtuos al conexiunii emotionale reale

2020 ne gaseste intr-o perioada calma, de liniste constructiva, an in care toate invatamintele spirituale din ultima perioada au capatat mai mult sens si forma pentru oameni

Romanii au invatat multe despre ei si despre viata in toti acesti ani de “aventuri intr-o piata libera”. Au invatat sa-si controleze entuziasmul, sa-si planifice intelept pasii, sa se documenteze solid inainte sa faca o alegere, sa planifice cel mai bun moment pentru luarea unor decizii, sa nu-si mai iroseasca energiile in relatii sau proiecte care nu duc nicaieri si care, intr-un final, ii consuma inainte de vreme

Au mai invatat ca emotiile pozitive sunt cea mai importanta resursa pentru o viata buna. Si ca atata timp cat simti ca iti place viata ta, nu conteaza cati bani ai, ce scrie pe cartea ta de vizita, ce oameni cunosti sau cati oameni “te recunosc”. Esti pur si simplu bine si in armonie cu tine, cu trupul tau, cu oamenii care te completeaza, te motiveaza si te sustin. Au invatat astfel cum sa evite si cum sa blocheze zonele nocive, cum sa se apere de ceea ce le face rau. Unii renunta la timpul petrecut in fata televizorului, altii reduc timpul in social media, incearca sa citeasca mai mult, sa petreaca mai mult timp in natura, sa-si faca timp pentru reflectie si meditatie, sa petreaca mai mult timp cu oameni care le plac. Multi se reprofileaza profesional intr-un moment din viata in care in trecut ar fi inceput sa se pregateasca pentru pensie.

Aceasta tendinta de regasire de sine si de refacere a conexiunii emotionale reale cu ceilalti se afla insa intr-un stadiu incipient. E ca si cum oamenii si-au planificat sa o ia pe acest drum si au facut abia primii pasi, destul de timizi. Oscileaza mai mult in a investi incredere totala intr-un proiect sau intr-o relatie si au in permanenta in minte acel backup plan de a reincerca si reincerca pana gasesc proiectul ideal, relatia ideala, job-ul ideal. Asistam astfel la conturarea unei perioade de scepticism, neincredere si chiar cinism care ar putea bloca acest drum spre regasirea autenticitatii si a emotiei prin simplul fapt ca oamenii s-ar putea sa nu recunoasca ceea ce-si doresc cu adevarat in timp real, tentati fiind de aceasta lume “plina de oportunitati”

Din fericire mai exista insa un alt aspect care pare ca ajuta oamenii sa continue acest drum introspectiv, oricat de anevoios pare el. In mod indirect, desigur. Acest aspect se refera la alinierea la o serie de principii de viata comune, care ne fac intr-un final bine tuturor. Spre exemplu, anul acesta cel mai dinamic trend este acela legat de conservarea mediului si de pastrarea echilibrului natural al planetei. Discutiile din spatiul public au contribuit in mod evident la dezmortirea acestui subiect care parea fara viitor in Romania.

Am putea interpreta asta ca fiind o trasatura a noastra:  suntem  aparent inerti pana cand cineva incepe ca comunice cu noi, intens si cu sens, si atunci ajungem sa ne mobilizam atat de puternic incat miscam muntii din loc.

Pentru ca romanii sunt precum acei copii foarte talentati, dar care au nevoie de permanente incurajari pentru a schimba ceva, pentru a avansa si a-si atinge potentialul.

Stiind toate acestea despre oameni, consideram ca Hunters este modul nostru de a incuraja binele social, prin cercetare sociologica. Si de a incuraja intr-un final acest drum spre regasirea de sine care a inceput si in Romania si care poate face atat de mult bine oamenilor, pe termen lung

Pentru ca acest proiect anual ne arata despre ce poate fi viitorul nostru. Si ne spune ca depinde de noi, intr-un final, ce drum alegem, din toate cele posibile, pentru a ne fi mai bine.
