Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behavior, according to the American Psychological Association. Psychology is a multifaceted discipline and includes many sub-fields of study such areas as human development, sports, health, clinical, social behavior, and cognitive processes. So here We have mentioned 10 Amazing psychological facts.
Do you know that if you make eye contact with someone for more than 1.13 seconds there is a 38.7% chance you will fall in love
A study conducted in 1989 assures that simple eye contact could make a person fall in love with you (Keller man, Lewis, and Laird).
In this study, two opposite-sex strangers were asked to gaze into each other’s eyes for two minutes, which in some cases was enough to produce passionate feelings for each other.
Eye contact is a powerful stimulator of love and affection. When you look someone directly in the eyes, their body produces a chemical called phenylethylamine that may make the person feel in love.
If you want to make someone fall in love with you, one of the first things you should do is look into their eyes.
Did you know that you can die in 2 weeks from lack of attention
Researchers have found that loneliness is just as lethal as smoking 15 cigarettes per day. Lonely people are 50 percent more likely to die prematurely than those with healthy social relationships.
There are several reasons why loneliness can be deadly. First, it reduces your immunity, which can increase your risk of disease. It also increases inflammation in the body, which can contribute to heart disease and other chronic health conditions.
Stress will also affect you more if you’re lonely. Financial trouble, health problems, and everyday obstacles may take a bigger emotional toll on individuals who lack social and emotional support.

Robert Zanjonc, an American social psychologist, compared photographs of couples on their wedding day with those taken 25 years later. His study showed that even if a husband and wife had no facial similarities at all, some 25 years later they looked surprisingly alike. Another cool fact from his survey: the more marital happiness a couple reported, the greater their increase in facial resemblance.
People who smile the most usually are the most depressed
Usually, depression is associated with sadness, lethargy, and despair — someone who can’t make it out of bed. Though someone experiencing depression can undoubtedly feel these things, how depression presents itself can vary from person to person.
“Smiling depression” is a term for someone living with depression on the inside while appearing perfectly happy or content on the outside. Their public life is usually one that’s “put together,” maybe even what some would call normal or perfect.
Smiling depression isn’t recognized as a condition in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) but would likely be diagnosed as a major depressive disorder with atypical features.

An IQ score doesn’t measure your practical intelligence
