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.
“This guy’s walking down the street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can’t get out. A doctor passes by, and the guy shouts up, “Hey, you, can you help me out?” The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a priest comes along, and the guy shouts up, “Father, I’m down in this hole. Can you help me out?” The priest writes a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by. “Hey, Joe, it’s me. Can you help me out” And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, “Are you nuts? Now we’re both down here.” The friend says, “Yeah, but I’ve been down here before - and I know the way out.”—Leo McGarry to Josh Lyman, The West Wing (via alaskamiller)
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.
