What are the most interesting facts about human behavior?

In
fact, people can’t multitask at the same time

It’s widely believed that humans can
multitask, but neuroscience research has proved it wrong again and again. In
fact, people can only deal with one cognitive task at a time. A recent study in
this field has shown that even college students can’t process multiple sets of
information at the same time. Instead, they can only focus on one set of data
separately.

The reason we think we can multitask at the
same time is that the human brain can efficiently switch between mental tasks.
Multitasking at the same time is superficial – in fact, we can only focus on
one thing at a time.

When
a person is given more expectations, his performance will be better (I am
optimistic about you!!! You can do it in 30 days)

The Pygmalion effect explains that a person
with high expectations will perform better. In an experiment on this effect,
Robert Rosenthal and Lenore Jacobson found that if teachers set higher
expectations on a particular group of students, that group of students would
perform much better than those who were not favored.

The experiment took all students at a
California elementary school on Monday to take a fake IQ test and tell the
school’s teachers that 20 percent of the children are more competitive and
potential than their peers.

In the following year, teachers put higher
expectations and attention on this group of “specific” students. A
year later, when all the students were given the same IQ test, there was a
significant statistical difference between the students who were given higher
expectations and those who were not. These findings confirm the theory that
higher expectations of others lead to better performance.

If
people have lived together for a long time, they will begin to look alike!

The traditional view that the reason for
this phenomenon is that people living together have the same eating habits and
eating habits. This view is partly correct, but it is far more than that.

For many years, the resemblance between
husband and wife comes from their imitation of facial expressions. Live
together to understand each other, to each other’s habits and expressions
gradually familiar with and imitate, over time has become a husband and wife!

The illusion of progress has an incentive
effect

An effective theory called the goal
gradient effect says that the illusion of progress toward your goal will
accelerate your behavior. When the theory was first tested in mice, they were
put into a maze that ran faster than at any stage near the end of the maze.

The reason for this sharp increase in speed
and motivation is this illusion of progress. This hypothesis was further
confirmed by a negative correlation between the effort of the mice in the maze
and their proximity to the target.

This growth is not limited to rats, but
also to humans. For example, consumers who participate in the purchase of
coffee to earn points in exchange for free coffee will buy more frequently when
they are close to the exchange limit, and Internet users who obtain
certificates by scoring songs are more likely to score songs continuously.
