The Pollyanna principle (also called Pollyannaism or positive bias) describes the tendency for people to agree with positive statements describing themselves. The phenomenon is similar to the Forer effect. Research indicates that, at the unconscious level, our minds have a tendency to focus on the optimistic while, at the conscious level, we have a tendency to focus on the negative. This unconscious bias towards the positive is often described as the Pollyanna principle.
Hey there my few tumblr followers:
I was wondering if you guys would be interested in a mixtape created by yours truly for the month of April? Gian suggested it be a “hip-hop-April” mix but I was wondering what everyone else thought? This is a random post but I’m bored in class right now and I just wanted to do something “4tInternetz.” I’ll hopefully have that uploaded sometime this week. Peace y`honkies.
