Psychology # 63 : Locus of Control

When someone was being abused for longer period of time, they may believe or trapped by this way of thinking.

 

They may think there’s no hope and they can never turn the table upside down, in such, they behave passive, helpless and conform to the toxic relationship / abuse.

 

Other victims may fight back because their lives are controlled on their own hands, they make a choice to leave the toxic relationship / abuse, learn and motivated to strive.

 

There’s a saying ” if you think you can, you can; if you think you can’t you can’t, both are true!”

 

Which type are you?

Psychology # 40 : Confirmation Bias

 

 

This cognitive bias can be found in many situation, e.g. when we believe something at the first place, we will look for signs / evidence to prove our beliefs, even though it’s non-sense / urological.

 

That’s why it’s so important to evaluate our thoughts always because it may mislead our upcoming behaviors.

 

How about you? Do you have this kind of bias that distort your perspectives often?

 

 

Psychology # 29 : Self-Serving Bias

 

 

I used to have this kind of attribution years ago, but since I approached and learned from this bias, I start to be more conscious about my decision / judgement.

 

It’s not a big weakness but if we don’t be conscious about human nature, we may end up making wrong decision, hanging around with wrong people that lead us to an fulfilling life.

 

How about you? Do you have this habit too?
