These are all things that you do every day but never notice why you do it unconsciously.
The brain is extremely mysterious and interesting. Therefore, sometimes there are activities that we thoughts we do every day unconsciously. Actually, they are governed by the natural psychological laws of human.
What are those activities? And what is the interpretation for them? You can see the answers below.
1. It’s a tendency that people often unconsciously turn down the volume or turn off the speaker completely when driving in an unfamiliar place.
It is true that when driving to a strange place, you will tend to turn down the radio volume, or turn it off completely, stop talking to people in the car to focus on driving so that you do not get lost.
People tend to unconsciously turn down the volume or turn off the speaker completely when driving in an unfamiliar place.
The specialist of psychology and brain science at Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Steven Yantis, demonstrates that when we focus on listening, we will lose our focus on visual information.
Therefore, we often turn down the volume of music and radio to focus on driving. Thus, we will not miss the information we need, and avoid getting lost.
2. People usually prefer to park their cars unconsciously next to another vehicle while the parking space is still empty.
Humans are inherently swarms, so we often follow the crowd. Even though the car park is empty, we tend to park our car next to another car.
To explain this, Mr. Rob Henderson – a research assistant at Yale University shared, “Today there are so many products and services that we do not have time to test them all.”
So we tend to use products that people have largely verified. That’s why in the advertisement, it often has the statement like ” 9 per 10 specialists recommend using this product”. The truth is that they’re trying to remind us of the crowd’s psychology.
3. Men unconsciously do not use 2 urinals side by side.
Even when it looks clean, the public toilets still have some ripple things to everyone. Because we always give prominence to personal space, we always consider such a sensitive problem.
And for men, they seem to have a tacit rule. Unless there is no other option, they would rather “die” than “stand” next to each other.
It’s easy to understand. Because most people do not want to go to the toilet under the eyes of others, men prefer to use the platelets apart.
4. Eating with other people, when there is one piece left, we usually don’t want to eat it.
Although it’s quite strange, it is true that not everyone noticed. It contradicts a lot of researches.The rarer the thing is, the more we want to have it. So in advertising, you are too familiar with the phrase “limited quantity” to stimulate customers.
However, two scientists Daniel A. Effron and Dale T. Miller from Stanford University pointed out that everyone in a group often does not eat a piece of cake, candy … in the end. That’s because they feel this is not true very much.
Experts call this phenomenon diffusion of interests, feeling that they should not enjoy the last piece of cake.
5. When people prefer someone, they will unconsciously point their feet towards that person when chatting.
Not only body posture but foot orientation also says a lot when you interact with the people around you!
Joe Navarro – the author of the book “What The Body Is Saying” explains that all actions come from our nature. The body makes sure that the foot can respond immediately when it feels threatened.
That is a survival instinct. Therefore, when you feel safe and comfortable, your feet will stay out of your comfort zone. For example, we often stand cross-legged when comfortable. But when there is a stranger, you will stand in a position to help you escape quickly. Therefore, when you feel bored with talking, your feet will turn to the other side.
6. Men are very afraid of asking for directions.
According to a survey, only 6% of men will ask for directions if they get lost. On average, a man will accept to go an additional 1,448km in 50 years just because he is afraid of asking for directions.
Psychologist Mark Goulston tried to explain for this. He said that men are afraid of asking for directions even though they know they have gone the wrong way. That’s because they do not want to appear weak, afraid of being hurt or humiliated.
Do you think that these discoveries are true? Let’s read more articles on this website to know more wonderful things in our lives.
