Part 1 : 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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
