7 Scientific Theories Why We Like Some People And Don’t Like Others

Posted on

There are 3 stages of love and different hormones work at every one of them. More than that, it was proven a long time ago that the changes that happen to our brain when we fall in love are comparable with psychological disorders. But what exactly happens to our body and inside of it? And why do we like some people more than others? Science has the answers! cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff

Justkooki.com offers you to take a look at these 7 interesting studies, experiments, and facts that will tell you more about yourself and will provide you with some key information so that you can make your communication with others much more productive.

1. Texts with a period at the end are perceived as insincere and/or angry.

Science, scientific research

Scientists from the State University of New York at Binghamton with Celia Klin as the supervisor held an experiment with 126 students. They had to read dialogues that consisted of only 2 lines: the first one was a question and the second consisted of different variations of answers such as “yes,” “yeah,” “sure,” and so on. The most important thing was whether or not there was a period at the end of the answer. After this, the participants had to evaluate the answer in terms of how true it seemed to them. And surprisingly, in most cases, the answers without the periods were evaluated as being more sincere than those with a period. cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff

We can’t use non-verbal signals such as facial expressions, tone and volume of the voice, and body language when we text. That’s why we replace all this by text imitation: capital letters and exclamation marks when we are shouting or when we are angry or grammar mistakes made on purpose when we want to show that we are not interested or busy. A period is a signal that we are serious or that a conversation is over, as explained by Mark Liberman, a professor of linguistics. That’s why a person who uses a period at the end of a sentence seems angry to us.

2. We behave better if we are expected to do so.

According to the Pygmalion effect, we behave with certain people in a way that corresponds with what we think of them. This also makes people behave in the way they are expected to. Science, scientific research

In one of the articles in Harvard Magazine, social psychologist Amy Cuddy explains: “If you think someone’s a jerk, you’ll behave toward them in a way that elicits jerky behaviors,” says Cuddy. “And then you say, ‘See? He is a jerk!’ This is one of the dangers of stereotypes. When we elicit behaviors consistent with the stereotypes we hold, we tell ourselves, ’See? The stereotypes are right!’”

If you know this rule, you can use it to your advantage and you can be different with a person to make them behave in the way you need them to.
