Thermos head

Do you know what exactly “thermos head” means?

As we are
Cabeza de termo

What exactly does “ thermos head ” mean? I mean, I know what you want to denote when you use the term, but why thermos? These questions, I think, are fundamental to be able to think well, because they somehow put into discussion issues that  custom  or laziness hankylose in our  minds .

Well, enough of linguistic-philosophical winding and let's try to unravel the question. I think the “bad” of the thermos, and from here comes its derogatory use, is that what got cold is cold and what got hot is hot. I mean, keep what they put inside, without any possibility of modifying it. And whoever does not modify himself or his environment does not  evolve . Moving forward is  learning , even if it is from the mistake that was made, there is no other way. And a thermos not only does not learn to change the chemical state (or is temperature a physical matter?) of its contents, but, going to the opposite end, it will be a good thermos precisely the one that manages to maintain the  temperature  with the least possible change.

So we know, next time, instead of telling someone “do not be a thermos head,” we can say “do not refuse to accept change, it's the only way to improve in life.” Or, better yet, we can not tell him anything and accept it as it is, and those who will be less thermos head will be us.

The magic of synonyms

If, even after these reflections, we have the urge to tell someone that we look like a thermos head, maybe we can think twice. Let's note that the expression “thermos head” describes a low-light person, not very intelligent or imaginative, without much spark, distracted. Let us stop to think whether our interlocutor has those characteristics or, simply, we are projecting what we think of ourselves. Sometimes the attitude of the other makes us angry because it is a reflection of what we don't like about our personality and we would love to be able to modify. But, we all know, this is not a simple thing.

A first step to reflect on this is to think of other “sisters”  expressions  of the term thermos head to start replacing it. The Spanish language is very rich and offers us a variety of words that we can outline to tell another what we think without being so explicit. That is the magic of synonyms: words or phrases that mean the same as another. We have the possibility to use them to tell our close thermos head the raw truth in a more elegant way. Just stroll around the Real Academia Española (RAE) website for a while to have a good list of adjectives:

 Fool : Ignorant and who does not know what he could or should know. I have no intelligence or reason. Stubborn and stubborn about what he does or says.
 Porfiada : Said of a stubborn and stubborn person in his opinion and opinion.
 Stubborn : Stubborn, stubborn and irreducible.
 Ignorant : Who ignores or does not know something. That lacks culture or knowledge.
 Silly : Said about a heavy, annoying person. That it is meaningless or motive.

The list goes on and on. The important thing is, as long as we have the need to throw up hurtful words on another's face, how we are. Are we always right? Aren't we distracted, are we clumsy? Don't we drop things out of hand? Isn't it hard for us to accept that we're not right, even if it's obvious? Do we know everything, about all things? Can we give someone else the reason easily? Ask yourself these questions and then, if you cheer up, tell another thermos head, stubborn, ignorant.

Un buen termo es aquel que conserva lo que se le pone, ya sea frio o caliente, durante el mayor tiempo posible y con el menor cambio posible. Un buen ejemplo de cabeza de termo sería Homero Simpson, el prototipo del ciudadano norteamericano víctima del paternalismo que ejerce el estado, con nula capacidad de pensar por lo que es bestial, reactivo, impulsivo y zombie del equipo de la cerveza...

Pero entonces habría que decirle "termo" y no "cabeza...". No es una frase muy acertada.

... como en el caso de "cabeza de novia", "cabeza de alcornoque", "cabeza dura", "cabeza de chorlito"... así se forma la expresión. Es una frase acertada, hablamos de la cabeza de la persona, no de la del termo (que por otra parte, hasta donde se, no tiene)

Pensé que se refería al tamaño. En los termos la cabeza es más pequeña que el "cuerpo", lo que en una persona sería cabeza pequeña o con poco cerebro. Pero estimo idea mía, nada más.

el origen de la frase no es el rechazo o imposibilidad al cambio como analogía a la conservación de la temperatura sino el principio de funcionamiento de la mayoría de los termos: el vacío

Cabeza de termo es aquel que tiene un pensamiento y una mente cerrada y aislada, que no permite que nada cambie en su interior y no percibe nada del exterior. Es una persona bruta que suele reaccionar violentamente y pensar que tiene razón y continuar su vida inconcientemente. En resumen, es un insulto muy ofensivo, pero muy util ya que no recurre a "malas" palabras o palabras "sucias" para atacar. Cuidado a quien le dicen asi.

En Argentina se le asigna ese giro idiomático, por lo general, al que vota al partido peronista o al kirnerismo; por sus pocas luces y la fácilidad conque los líderes bananeros de esos partidos, los llevan de las narices a cambio de un electrodoméstico o un plan social.

la cabeza del termo es su tapa y la tapa es hueca, a eso se refiere la expresión, "cabeza hueca" = cabeza de termo
