Psychology Facts With Explanations
The type of music you listen to, affects the way you perceive/ see the world!
Here's why: If you listen to pop/upbeat music you're way more likely to see the world in a more positive way. Research says that on average teenagers listen to music 26.6 hours a week (in a 2016 study). If you listen to music that long, plus longer than you are way more likely to perceive the world in different ways. On the other hand though, if you listen to sad, emo music than you're most likely to see the world in a more negative way. Music affects your personality and it is bound to affect the way you see the world and everyone living in it.
It only takes 3-4 minutes to determine who you like (or love)
Here's why: Now most of you are going to find this insane, mainly because it doesn't sound realistic or true, but proven by psychologic research this is true. You obviously do not know much about this person in the 3-4 minutes but you can make a good opinion on them based on their looks, body posture, the way they dress, etc. Using these things, you base an opinion and base how you feel about someone. You also preform scenarios in your head with this person, making them a better person than they actually may be. You're obviously not falling in love this person's personality yet but you love the visible part of them. You may fall even more in love with them after the 3-4 minutes or fall out of love with them (eventually) so this may change and it also just depends on the type of person you are. Trust me, this is proven and real!. Believe me...please.
The people who give the best advice are usually the ones with the most problems.
Here's why: Now for some of you, this may seem like common sense but let me explain. You cannot give advice to someone if you have NO IDEA what they are going through so if you think hard enough you can come to the conclusion that either this person has gone through something similar or knows a lot about the subject of pain. Giving advice is quite simple for people who have a decent amount of problems, so they give the best advice they can because they know what it is like to struggle with certain issues so they are just doing whatever they can to help...ya know
Placebos can work just as good as real medication does
Here's why: Basically, placebos are fake medication. They trick your brain into thinking they are working, it also tricks your body into thinking it is working. It causes similar reactions that actual medication does. That's why sometimes doctors prescribe placebos to some clients. This gives you something to think about doesn't it? Are you taking a placebo?..
We aren't actually that good at multi-tasking
Here's why: You know how you say you're good at multi-tasking? Well to be truthful with you, you're not that good. You think you are doing "2 things at once" but actually you're not. You're switching between 2 things. You focus your attention on one thing at a time, let's say you're doing homework while attempting to watch television. Now you're not doing this at the same time. You are doing homework for a few minutes and then shifting your attention to watching television. It's just the act of switching your attention. Now you know why it is so hard to focus on talking to someone and going through your phone, you're not multi-tasking you're just genuinely not listening. Yay, now you know the difference:)
