5 Myths of Psychological Facts

Part 1 : 5 Myths of Psychological Facts

5 Myths of Psychological Facts

Not all psychological facts are true. Some are made up by the people. In Part 1 Post, I have listed out 5 common psychological facts which are not convincing.

When offered to write with a new pen, 97 % of people first write their own name .

This statement cannot prove the reality. When offered to write with a new pen, most people will scribble(usually scribble lines). They will check whether the pen writes or not. Another set of people will continue writing the sentence, they stopped earlier. (This is due to empty ink status of the previous pen.) Very few people will first write their name with a new pen.

What do you write first, when you are offered to write with a new pen?




You rarely die in your dreams, whenever you do ,it indicates that you have started something new in your life.

Depressed people tend to see this type of dream often. It is common to have such a nightmare once in a while for everyone. Dying in your dream does not mean you have started something new in your life. Rather, most of the people get this dream, when they are unhappy in their life.

What does your last dream indicate?


The internet trolls are narcissistic, psychopathetic, and sadistic

Not everyone is suffering from mental disorder. The internet trolls are here to make others happy. They share their jokes/memes , their sarcasm and entertain others. We can find narcissistic, psychopathic and sadistic people anywhere . It is not specifically tagged to the internet trolls.

What do you think about the personality of the internet trolls?

Convincing yourself you slept well, will trick your brain into thinking it did.

You can try to be optimistic and not overthink of not getting enough sleep earlier night. But, convincing yourself you slept well will not be good for your health. Doing this every now and then, will have bad impact on your health conditions. Not getting enough sleep can affect your focus/concentration levels.

What trick do you use to convince your brain you slept well?

The maximum time a women can keep secret is 47 hours and 15 minutes.

Totally, disagree. The person who keeps the secret for a longer time has nothing to do with gender. It all depends upon the personality behavior. It can even depend on whether the secret is a threat and it needs to be shared with someone or not.

How long did you keep a secret with you?

    I like the last one. Yes secrets can kept not based on gender but based on the person.

  2. Nice post. I agree, some of those ‘facts’ are totally untrue.

    If you gave me a pen, I’d scribble lines to check it worked.
    I’ve never dreamed about dying.
    Yes, horrible people can be found everywhere, not just as internet trolls. (The internet gets a lot of bad press for this though)
    Quality sleep is important. Having bad sleep and convincing yourself it was good sleep would be crazy. It would be better to work on better sleeping habits.
    Secrets..I’m female, I can keep a secret. But I think it has nothing to do with gender.

    1. Thank you for reading 😊 and thank you for sharing your view on each queries. Good to know 😊

  3. So funny I had to stop and think about the first one because I work in a shop that sells pens and when customers are writing with a new pen, they hardly ever write their name. One recently wrote hungry, which I get represented their hunger for food πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    The secret one was interesting

  4. This is cool! I didn’t know some of these myths. For example, I’m with you, I can totally keep a secret. It helps that I don’t talk to a lot of people πŸ˜‰

  5. This is really interesting, if I have a new pen I either do a wiggly line or write hello! I’m not sure if I’ve ever dreamed of dying, definitely of panic and near death, but of death itself I’m not sure.

  6. Hannah Marie says:

    These are all absolutely interesting stuff to know. I have always been keen to read information like this. I have enjoyed browsing thru this page.

  7. Personally, I find that “you rarely die in your dreams” is so weird. In other words, was this ever tested? How can anyone prove it as truth? These statements can do some much damage especially the one about keeping a secret.

  8. You’re so true. Human minds are really weird. Thanks for sharing knowledge.

  9. Haha Yes this is so true. If I’ll be given a pen, I’ll definitely scribble some lines to check if it’s working.

  10. I enjoyed reading this post and agreed to some of the points here, such as women can only hold secret up to 47 hours, lol.

  11. Convincing yourself you slept well, will trick your brain into thinking it did-must start doing this, daily! Haha

  12. Robert Johnston says:

    I really enjoyed reading this. A lot of great information. Great job.

  13. Funny post. The myth I’ve heard of prior to this post is the last one about women keeping secrets. I know plenty of guys that can’t hold water though.

  14. You, Me and Benny says:

    well these are interesting haha I am going to have to show my husband! HE CANNOT keep a secret!

  15. Terri Ramsey Beavers says:

    Everytime I get a new pen to review, the first thing I write is my name too. I have to agree about the Internet trolls. I have met just as many narcissistic, psychopathetic, and sadistic people online as I have offline. Some folks just have a wry sense of humor that we don’t always get or agree with.

  16. I think you’re right, most of these “pyschologial facts” aren’t facts. For one thing, I for sure don’t write my name every time I come across a pen lol. the only time is when my name is specifically asked in a form or something.

  17. I always write my first name lol πŸ˜‚ didn’t realize it until I read this also can’t remember ever dying in my dream maybe fighting but never dying

  18. Neil Alvin Nicerio says:

    Those were new. πŸ™‚ In my country when you die in your dreams it is a bad omen.

  19. Alexandra Cook says:

    Internet trolls exist solely to make people laugh at the expense of others. It is up to us to brush off their goofiness, but don’t let them bully you!

  20. Haha πŸ˜€ This made me laugh out loud. “Convincing yourself you slept well, will trick your brain into thinking it did” is good one.

  21. Wow sounds interesting this quote is really true The internet trolls are narcissistic, psychopathetic, and sadistic in my part I love sharing funny memes HAHAHAH on my social media because that makes me feel happy.

  22. very informative sharing here, learnt some useful tips & new knowledge, thanks for sharing this. cheers, siennylovesdrawing

  23. Hahah I’m glad you’re saying all of these are nonsense although I do tend to writ emy own name whenever I get a new pen πŸ™‚

  24. I love these psychology myths exposure! 1. Whenever I get a new pen, I always scribble because of the ink.
    2. I rarely have those death dreams but I guess it only happens at times when I’m stressed.
    3. I never trick myself that I got enough sleep. Prob cuz I never get enough sleep lol.
    4. I troll sometimes because I’m a sarcastic person lol.
    5. True, secrets can depend on personality!

    1. Thank you ZyraKumaπŸ˜€ Good to know your answers …Hahaha yeah even for me sleep trick works hardly as I never sleep enough

  25. What interesting facts! I am going to try to trick my brain to think I slept well last night tomorrow. Wish me luck!

  26. Devyani Ray says:

  27. ogbugbu14 says:

    dont know much about the said topic but its definitely a nice article to read

  28. blair villanueva says:

    Very interesting to know these myths. Indeed, psychological is also an interesting subject to learn.

  29. Elizabeth O says:

    Honestly, reading each one made me laugh. I kept thinking this is what pop psychology means. Perhaps that is why myths rarely disappear.

  30. Never heard most of these myths…women secret keeping time is hilarious

  31. The first thing I do when I have a new pen is either write a line or doodle. I do it to check the ink of the pen. Almost all internet trolls are emotionally disturbed. They vent out the things they cannot say through social media using dummy accounts.

  32. nice article and there are several word that I think is deserved keep in my mind

  33. Eileen M Loya says:

    My answers to the 5 questions above:
    1. I scribble lines when I get a new pen
    2. I haven’t dreamed of dying in my dream (God forbid! That would be scary!)
    3. Internet trolls have unhappy lives and they want others to be unhappy too.
    4. I cannot trick my brain to think that I slept well. If I ever did sleep well, then I should celebrate!
    5. I can keep a secret, just don’t blackmail me into getting the secret out, because if I feel threatened, I will tell.
    I like this post. It was a good read for me today.
