Why kiss a little more to the right?

Core tip:

why couples kissing a little more to the right? This is not a random question. Psychologists have found that people in urgently want to close to will automatically choose the right things. Ta again with the right hand hold your next time, don’t complain about ta heartbeat on the left!

I don’t know you found no, kiss a little more to the right, most see owners will wag its tail to your right side; The tongue of the toad catch food, it will always aim at the right of the food & hellip; & hellip; Why is this? Psychologist one possible explanation is: when we were close to wish particularly strong, choose the right.

psychology research suggests that people focus on some positive results, which is produced when approaching the motive, the left hemisphere brain take some strong relative to the activation of right hemisphere. According to the function of all parts of the brain and body cross corresponding principle, of the body on the right side of the things people will show more bias. In November 2011, researchers at the university of Amsterdam further pointed out that this caused by approaching the motive of the right to only when required to do individual quickly reaction occurs.

on behalf of the desire to close to right?

in the experiments, the researchers by changing the participants’ motivation approach (or avoid) and time pressure (1.5 seconds or 4 seconds), the 38 participants were randomly divided into 4 groups. They have to watch an animation: approaching the group will see a mouse in the maze try to find at the end of the maze of cheese; Avoid group sees a mouse tried to escape around the talons of the eagle on the top of the maze. Then the researchers asked participants to the Angle of the mouse to write a vivid story. Approach to write how the mouse close to the cheese and eat it; While avoiding group how to write the mouse tried to escape the eagles hunt but was eventually kill and eat.

the researchers asked all of the participants on the computer to complete a mission points and line segments. Line may appear in any position of the screen, players have to do is mark the halfway point of the line segment within the allotted time, the line segment into two equal parts. According to the regulation time (1.5 seconds or 4 seconds) and divided the participants into a high time pressure and low pressure group. Each group of eight points and line segments task. The results showed that compared with other conditions, reaching set when time is short, the midpoint is pulled to the right will be marked.

in the experiment the right tends to occur in daily life? In order to verify this phenomenon, were collected from 1982 to 2010, 8 of the football World Cup penalty data, analysis the goalkeeper in penalty penalty goal shooting direction of the moment of jump ball. If & other; The right trend & throughout; Really exists, that because the kicker is pregnant with avoidance motive in the penalty kick, so will not show the right deviation; And in their backward situation, the goalkeeper hope very much saved a penalty, retain the hope of team fight back, so close to motive is the most powerful at this time, which shows the tendency of obvious right on the ball. Statistics found that regardless of their team score penalty hand toward the goal play there was no significant difference between the probability of the left or right. And the goalkeeper is different, they lead in their team and deadlock cases showed no preference which direction on the ball. But in the case of behind their team, the goalkeeper in 71% of cases in the right side of the body to save, while only 29% of the cases was conducted towards his body to the left of saves, showing obvious preference to save the ball on the right side.

this study some problems

although this article from the perspective of a more novel and explain the researchers found a behavior & ndash; & ndash; For individuals to make response quickly, tend to be motivated individuals to the reaction of the right, but we also want to see some deficiencies in this article.

a, really induce participants’ approach to motivation. Let part of participants to write stories to induce mice Angle towards the motivation, but it is difficult to rule out these stories also stimulated participant happy or tension. Goalkeeper behind in their own time than any other time more eager to saved a penalty is also the experimenter speculation, is not for them to investigate.

2, the lack of baseline conditions are compared. Don’t know under the condition of neutral people is like the left or right.

three left and right. Paper did not explicitly report participants which hand is used in the experiment, so we don’t know whether the experimenter for reaction hand has carried on the balance between the different participants. In addition, the paper also didn’t report participants left-handedness and right-handed.

maybe these requirements for an article is strict, especially for our contribution to this article has an interesting psychological phenomenon, and based on the former research to approach the relationship between motivation and cerebral hemisphere to approach in the experiment provides a reasonable explanation. But the scientific psychology is a serious discipline, every step we are derived with many questions. Through an experiment and a file analysis is hard to people of a certain psychological mechanism for clear understanding, only we in the subsequent psychology workers experimented to exclude and affirmation every kind of explanation, to constantly deepen the understanding of the psychological mechanism of various kinds of behavior phenomenon behind.

edit: whatever & other; The right trend & throughout; Really exist, dominant team as far as possible when free throws the ball to the goalkeeper on the left side of the play is right. Well, don’t tell the goalkeeper!
