When we say our actions are a result of only our own decisions, we lie a bit. Our brain is constantly tricking us, impairing our perception of reality. Are you one of the many people who wonder why they get their best ideas in the shower? The answer to this eternal question might seem confusing as it’s one of a number of paradoxes you’ve probably never thought about.

SUMMARY: – When you are trying too hard to impress people, you aren’t likely to show your true self. Subconsciously, people will feel your insincerity and won’t fall for your performance. – Your mind can play some pretty cruel tricks on you! For example, if you expect something to be difficult, you unconsciously overcomplicate things. – Vulnerability is an amazing thing. When you aren’t afraid to demonstrate it and feel comfortable about not being ideal, people tend to think that you’re perfect. – According to Carl Jung, a famous psychologist, if there’s a trait that bothers you in others, it reflects those parts of you that you deny or feel insecure about – Those who feel insecure about any kind of connection they have with others often use this tactic. – There’s nothing wrong with trying again and again. You’ll succeed eventually! – Any fear you have paralyzes your desire to be happy and enjoy your life. And since the fear of death is one of the most potent fears a person can have, it doesn’t let you live your life to the fullest. – You might not notice it at first sight, but be sure that those who are rude, uncaring, and impolite to other people are just as negligent to themselves. – If you really want to convince someone, stop arguing. Give the other party time to come to the same conclusion on their own. – This is the famous “paradox of choice,” where people who are presented with more options feel less satisfied with the one they make. When you make your choice, you automatically reject other alternatives. – The more convinced a person is that they are right, the less likely they are to know the subject. The problem is that many facts change over time. But an overly confident person isn’t likely to check the truthfulness of something they think they know. – When you try to be as close as possible to another person, that’s mostly your jealousy speaking. Such behaviour can only make your partner feel obliged to love you and be loyal. And that’s not a healthy relationship. – A relaxed state of mind can help you turn your focus inward. Thus, your mind will be more likely to make insightful connections.
