Psych Part II: Did you know that …

I loved this post from Ana – I had to share it with you all!

Psych: Did you know that …

  1. The human brain forgets 80% of what it’s learned in a day?
  2. The music you listen to influences the way you view the world?
  3. Romantic love is only slightly different from the obsessive-compulsive disorder (the purpose of which is to reduce anxiety, and not obtaining pleasure)?
  4. There’s a gene for pessimists that makes them see everything in a bad light?
  5. Spending money on others brings more satisfaction than spending it on yourself?
  6. Communication makes us more intelligent, and enhances memory?
  7. According to the more recent studies, genetics doesn’t really influence the IQ?

Enjoyed this? Plenty more where it came from. Check out the Personality Tests section and have a great time discovering the darkest corners of your personality. I’m always happy to hear from you! Leave your thoughts in a comment, and don’t shy from making suggestions for further posts.

Torrents of memories 

I stand absorbed by the falling water. Like moments in time they coomr and go so fast. Lost to the pool below, mixed together in an inseparable mix.  Yet my pool of thoughts can be separated, in mixed from the rest to bring g back moments in a drop, feelings lost to be rediscovered.  Soon...
