4 Psychological Studies That Will Completely Change The Way You See Yourself
1. The wooden door experiment.
The wooden door experiment was an experiment conducted by researchers in which college students were targeted.
The researchers would ask for directions, and halfway through receiving directions from the students, workmen hauling a large wooden door passed between the two having the discussion, and then another researcher switched places with the individual who was asking for directions.
Around half of the participants didn't notice that the person asking for directions had changed.
This is called "change blindness." It demonstrates how we're sometimes not aware of what's happening before us.
