Leyva, Oregon, Eric discussed on StarTalk Playing with Science


Right. It's almost like the moneyball guy who was doing all the, but you know, he's human behavior is notoriously very difficult to predict. So although we have these, you know statistics and who tends to do better on what in the moment. You know, I think anything could a mental change can affect all these districts in terms of there'd be previous behavior. And and you know, maybe something like free will or certain things. That's That's that's that's. one. But there's this thing. Leyva family. Maybe hey, look at that. Scientists no matter what the discipline. Everybody doesn't know. There's no free. What is your problem?

That's right, right. What happens in the brain? That makes that actually come true where you know, you is. I look at it self-fulfilling prophecy. Yeah. So your thoughts. Can affect your behavior. We know that. So if you change your mindset, if you think you're going to do poorly, if you're told for example, you're going to do poorly on this math test people tend to do worse than if they're told like with girls girls tend to do better math, and they'll do better on the math test. So telling yourself, oh, this is the whole that. I usually mess up on is going to really negatively affect your performance. The other thing with this game, which is interesting in terms of the psychology..
