Richard Wiseman’s Experiment

wealthymattersPsychologist Richard Wiseman surveyed a bunch of people to find out who considered themselves lucky or unlucky, then performed a very interesting test:

He gave both the “lucky” and the “unlucky” people a newspaper and asked them to look through it and tell him how many photographs were inside. He found that on average the unlucky people took two minutes to count all the photographs, whereas the lucky ones determined the number in a few seconds.

How could the “lucky” people do this? Because they found a message on the second page that read, “Stop counting. There are 43 photographs in this newspaper.”

Richard Wiseman,a researcher in the field of luck, says that lucky people generate good fortune via four basic principles:

2. They make lucky decisions by listening to their intuition

3. They create self-fulfilling prophesies via positive expectations

4. They adopt a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good
