Psychology is the study of the human mind and mental processes in relation to human behaviors - human nature.
Implicit memory is a type of memory in which previous experiences aid in the performance of a task without conscious awareness of these previous experiences. [ 1 ] Evidence for implicit memory arises in priming , a process whereby subjects are measured by how they have improved their performance on tasks for which they have been subconsciously prepared. [ 2 ] [ 3 ] Implicit memory also leads to the illusion-of-truth effect, which suggests that subjects are more likely to rate as true those statements that they have already heard, regardless of their veracity. [ 4 ] In daily life, people rely on implicit memory every day in the form of procedural memory , the type of memory that allows people to remember how to tie their shoes or ride a bicycle without consciously thinking about these activities. Research into implicit memory indicates that it operates through a different mental process from explicit memory . [ 1 ]
The Forer effect (also called the Barnum effect after P. T. Barnum 's observation that "we've got something for everyone") is the observation that individuals will give high accuracy ratings to descriptions of their personality that supposedly are tailored specifically for them, but are in fact vague and general enough to apply to a wide range of people.
The Internet has introduced a golden age of ill-informed arguments.
The human mind is a wonderful thing.
Many cognitive biases have been demonstrated by research in psychology and behavioral economics . These are systematic deviations from a standard of rationality or good judgment. Although the reality of these biases is confirmed by replicable research, there are often controversies about how to classify these biases or how to explain them. [ 1 ] Some are effects of information-processing rules, called heuristics , that the brain uses to produce decisions or judgments.
“I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available because if you try it, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.” – Charlie Sheen “We put our fingers in the eyes of those who doubt that Libya is ruled by anyone other than its people.” – Muammar Gaddafi
Cognitive bias is distortion in the way we perceive reality. Many of these biases are often studied for how they affect business and economic decisions and how they affect scientific and experimental research.
