I definitely think something in psychology that I will never forget is the concept of Pseudoscience. We are all victims of it and I am no exception. Pseudoscience is relatively common in everyday life, especially with the things like astrology. Palm readers and other forms of psychic analysis are both very believable and often times extremely coincidental if you are unaware that it is completely false and by chance. However, I still find enjoyment in reading my horoscopes, going to palm readers, and engaging in card readings.
I don't understand why I enjoy these things so much. Perhaps because, even if for just a moment, I feel a deep connection with who I am and what my future holds. It's not everyday that someone I have never met before tells me things that I am relatively good at or expresses my interests without knowing a single thing about my personality. Astrology could really tie in well with the placebo effect, as well. Is anyone else a victim of pseudoscience and if so, in what forms? Even though I know better than to believe and pay into an industry that is nothing more than complete bogus, I still feel a desire to continue reading and engaging in astrological activities.
