Seven amazing and proven psychological facts – Number 4, 5 and 6 will shock you

1 Students who write notes longhand remember more and have a deeper understanding of the material than those who take notes with a laptop.
It is a popular belief that taking notes with laptops in the classroom can enhance the academic performance of students. this is because the speed with which one can type is significantly greater than the speed with which one can write. So, while taking notes on a laptop, one can type more information than writing.

But a new research by Pam Mueller and Daniel Oppenheimer suggests that this is not the case. According to the research, students who take notes by hand use different types of cognitive processing than students who take notes with a laptop. This affects their learning. Writing is a slower process than typing. So, students cannot write down every word in a lecture. Instead, they listen, digest, and summarize before writing it down. This helps them in capturing the essence of the information and hence engages the brain a lot more than typing. As a result, students who write notes down retain the information for a longer time than students who type it in a laptop.

Greater expectations can lead to better performance and better results, while lower expectations can decrease the performance level.
The phenomenon that higher expectations can increase performance is commonly known as the “Pygmalion effect” or “Rosenthal effect.” It was first demonstrated by Professor Robert Rosenthal. He conducted an experiment in a California elementary school and found that when teachers were made aware of the students who have a high chance of success, their expectations increase. Hence, they paid close attention to those students and also sometimes treated them differently. Basically, the teachers subconsciously behaved differently towards those students which encourages their success. This has a positive effect on the student, and their performance becomes better.

The same is applicable in the workplace. Expectations of the leader can alter the behavior of employees and vice versa.

Including blue-colored food in your diet aids in weight loss as blue is an appetite suppressant.
While other colors can be seen abundantly in the world of foods, we rarely see any blue-colored fruits or vegetables. Aside from blueberries and blue-purple potatoes, this color does not exist in significant quantities as a natural food color. So, we do not have any appetite response linked with the color blue. Hence, if you are going for a weight loss plan, try introducing food dyed with blue dye. Or else you can install a blue light in refrigerator to ward off your snack cravings.

Talking to yourself improves concentration and mental recall.
When we catch anyone talking to themselves, we tend to think of them as crazy. But actually, talking to yourself is both normal and healthy. To prove this, an experiment was conducted at Bangor University. Under the experiment, the participants were asked to read written instructions either silently or out loud. The result of this experiment was those who read the instructions out loud had better concentration and performance.

Strict parents can turn their kids into more effective liars because children who are afraid to tell the truth learn more deceptive behaviors to avoid getting in trouble.

Children have a mind of their own and often do not agree with the views of their elders or parents. In such cases, parents usually take strict measures to make the children obey them. Studies have shown that authoritarian tendencies of parents can turn children into liars. They will tend to lie so as to avoid the punishment. According to Victoria Talwar, a renowned expert on children’s social-cognitive development at McGill University, when children are subjected to inevitable punishment, they began learning how to deceive their parents.

But when a kid lies, it is not necessarily a bad sign. That’s because lying is also a sign that the kid is developing important psychological skills. It shows that the kid can think nonlinearly and also has a good working memory which is needed to keep both their lies and facts straight. In fact, the earlier a child learns to lie, the smarter the child is and is more likely to grow up to be an intelligent individual.

7 The best way to get someone to like you isn’t to do them a favor, but to convince them to do you a favor.
Asking for a favor does not always makes us feel good as we become worried that the person helping us out will find it rather annoying. But according to a psychological phenomenon called the “Ben Franklin Effect,” the reality is just the opposite and the person from whom you have asked the favor would end up liking you more.

This phenomenon had been proved in a study by psychologist Yu Niiya of Hosei University in Tokyo. According to Yu Niiya, the Ben Franklin effect occurs because the person being asked for help believes that you want to become friendly with that person, and that’s why you have asked for help. In turn, the person reciprocates the liking and ends up liking you instead of becoming annoyed.

Read this narration by twitter handle, @Wenogetjob, which tells of how he eavesdropped on a couples conversation of a duping man. The man rented a house for 2 month, bought expensive items worth up to N50 million on credit. Left the rented apartment with all the appliances he has not paid for, after winning the trust of the sellers.

Hey peepz, I have a gist tho I don’t know if it’s true or not..But I will say it Sha. I was just walking on the street 2receive fresh air when I saw a couple. d man was telling his wife about an incident. I kukuma slowed down an walked behind them to hear d full gist.

It was more like a scam story. A certain man walked up to a Landlord in our area and requested to rent his apartment for 2 months, with the excuse that he was traveling to Canada and just came to Lagos for the Visa Processing.. They agreed on 150K.

The man paid and took ownership of the apartment.He then went out to Vendors in town and negotiated to buy expensive items on lease. With installment payment plans.. He was said to have collected home appliance worth N50,000,000 from various vendors.

He then took them all to the apartment one by one to build trust. At least once they know he lives there, they can easily come around and pack their stuffs if he defaults, these people didn’t know what would hit them was going to be deadlier than Tsunami.

As agreed with the Landlord, the man packed out even earlier than expected… Left with all the items, of which he had not finished the payment..and the Landlord was so happy to have struck a better deal He immediately rented out the apartment to another family.

One by one, the creditors began to come in and same story was relieved to them.. Some fainted, some threatened hell fire …. To cut the long story short, Baba Ijebu was arrested alongside the new tenant.. You know Naija now… #POLICE  no wan hear wuen

They were only saved after a Landlord intervened. He is a legal practitioner and took up the case. But sincerely speaking. I wonder how some people feel at rest knowing fully well their victims would suffer.  I guess it all centers on lack of conscience. This is bad #dojon
