运气的学问

“有些人真的比别人要幸运么?还是只是他们认为而已?”——Both.

最近英国的一个实验心理学家的“运气实验室(Luck lab)”搞了一项有意思的科学研究。他们招了一些(700)打算买彩票的受试者,通过一个运气的心理问卷区别出自认为"Lucky People"和“Unlucky People”两个人群。

首先,意料之中这两组在中奖概率方面没有区别。然后,一系列的心理学调查发现运气和人的性格相关,而“性格决定命运”。全文这里就不引了。很有道理的一篇关于生活态度的短文,给出连接,没事就当短阅读读一读吧。

总而言之,你觉得自己很幸运,你就会真的变得很“幸运”。不知道这个叫不叫唯心啊

摘几个实验结论:

Lucky people are far more satisfied with all areas of their lives than unlucky or neutral people.

Lucky people expect good things to happen.

Lucky people score significantly higher than unlucky people on extroversion. Lucky people, for example, smile twice as often and engage in more eye contact than unlucky people do.

The lucky ones were half as anxious as the unlucky ones–that is, "because lucky people tend to be more relaxed than most, they are more likely to notice chance opportunities, even when they are not expecting them." In one experiment, Wiseman had volunteers count the number of photographs in a newspaper. Lucky subjects were more likely to notice on page two the half-page ad with the message in large bold type: STOP COUNTING–THERE ARE 43 PHOTOGRAPHS IN THIS NEWSPAPER.

Expectation also plays a role in luck. Lucky people expect good things to happen, and when they do they embrace them. But even in the face of adversity, lucky people turn bad breaks into good fortune.
