Hi hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Today I’m sharing some really interesting psychology facts and my thoughts about them.
Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and it’s functions. It’s something I find super neat to learn about. So let’s get to it!
1. Food made by someone else tastes better, even if you follow the same recipe.
I’m thinking the logic comes from the effort you put in to create the meal, and I totally agree with this. Preparing a meal can be a lot of work, and effort and sometimes, by the time I get to sit down to eat it, my mood likely affects the taste. (Or, how I perceive the taste.)
2. Your memories are easy to manipulate.
This one kind of creeped me out a little. If memories are easy to manipulate, then is anything I remember real?
3. You would prefer anticipating something bad over not knowing what to expect.
This one is a definite YES. I can’t stand not knowing what to expect. Even if it’s likely something good, I still can’t stand it. I like being prepared, and knowing what is coming.
4. Being tested on things helps you remember them better.
I agree with this, but would just like to point out that sometimes a test can create anxiety, which can make those things harder to remember. But generally speaking, I totally agree with this.
5. Crying has benefits.
OH YES. Sometimes I find crying to be like a release of things I was carrying. It can feel very therapeutic.
6. Some people are afraid of feeling too much happiness.
I think I am one of these people. I think every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so therefore if there is TOO much happiness, that would mean that something unhappy is coming. (That’s how I see it anyways.) I did not realise that other people felt this way though!
7. Receiving rewards could convince you that a boring task was fun.
DEFINITELY agree with this. Sometimes I make myself a little reward system to help myself get through whatever the task is.
Did you know all these facts? Which one is the most interesting to you?
