5 BIZARRE Facts You Won’t Believe Are Scientifically Proven!
Fact and fiction are clearly distinguishable. Facts come from hard evidence of years or even decades of research while fiction comes from the imagination and beliefs that may not necessarily be true. But the line becomes more blur each time. For example, when someone tells you that farts reduce high blood pressure, you will pretty much say that they might be a bit crazy. Anyways, within this list, we are showing you 5 BIZARRE Facts You Won’t Believe Are Scientifically Proven! Ready? Well, lets begin!
1. Girls are More Attractive in Groups
How do you feel about cheerleaders or girl bands? Most people would agree that they are a great main event. There is a belief that when humans see a group of people, their facial features become of more or less averaged out. Therefore, an individual can be seen to be more attractive in a group than alone. The catch? Well, it has been verified by science. Nicknamed the Bridesmaid Paradox, Sorority Girl Syndrome and even the Spice Girl Conspiracy, the discovery was made by none other than How I Met Your Mother’s Barney Stinson but was later confirmed by Psychological Science in a study. The study involved showing participants photos of 100 people where individuals were shown in a group and alone. The results of the study indicated that the participants were more attracted to those in groups than alone.
2. The Universe is Beige
An ambitious survey of over 200,000 galaxies by astronomers from John Hopkins University was done in the attempt to discover the color of light emitted in the entire universe. Their discovery was a color combination that added up to an off-white color o slightly beige. They then proceeded to give the color a name, cosmic latte. It is now even a color on photoshop. Reason would suggest that the color of the universe would be brighter with all those supernovas and stars. Science suggests the universe is just a big coffee stain.
3. To-Do Lists Make You More Productive
Remember when your wise uncle told you that writing something down meant you were never going to do it? Well, science just proved them wrong. To do lists are a great way to make someone more productive and fulfill their goals. Scientific studies show that writing down our tasks and goals makes the act of active participation more meaningful hence greater commitment to finish it. it also allows better prioritization and time management. Researchers have pinned down the time to focus on your goals to about one week. Writing down what you want to do this week right now is without a doubt a good place to start.
4. Women Like the ‘T’
We have been wearing t-shirts since the 19th century and you would think that it is nothing more than a clothing design. It turns out there is more to the t-shirt than you would think. A research team at Nottingham Trent University in the United Kingdom discovered that if a man wore a plain white t-shirt with a large black letter “T” on the front they were more attractive to the opposite sex. They explained that the shape of the “T” enhances the waist to chest ratio, a key identifier of masculinity. This hypothesis proved correct when a large group of women were shown one group of men with an upright T and another an inverted T. Those with the upright T won.
5. The Less You Know, the More You Think You Know
Ignorance is bliss. Overconfidence is a trait we might mistake for fearlessness and it, more often than not. gets us into plenty of trouble. The Dunning-Kruger effect explains this phenomenon almost accurately. In a nutshell, the Dunning-Kruger effect states that the more incompetent you are the more confidence you have in your own competence. This theory was proved to be true through a series of experiments performed at Cornell University in 1999. It becomes difficult for someone to recognize their own ineptitude.
