Unconscious Mind Can Detect a Liar When Conscious Mind Fails

The unconscious mind could catch a liar

“We set out to test whether the unconscious mind could catch a liar – even when the conscious mind failed,” says ten Brinke. Along with Berkeley-Haas Assistant Professor Dana R. Carney, lead author ten Brinke and Dayna Stimson (BS 2013, Psychology), hypothesized that these seemingly paradoxical findings may be accounted for by unconscious mental processes.

Home Based Business Article - Think Before You React

Written by John Benjamin.O on 16 May 2010.

 essential to think before reacting It is very easy when operating a business from home to get caught up in the emotion of things. When we do that we tend to overreact to certain situations we find ourselves and this can lead to disaster. It is very essential to think before reacting. This home based business article explains starting off with a story that isn’t directly related to operating a home business but does get the point across.

At the time of this writing, I am having my roof replaced. They began at 8 AM and as of 2:22, they are still at it. Anyway, around 1 PM or there about, I realized that it was beginning to get a little warm in the house, so I decided to check the thermostat. The temperature was 5 degrees higher than the usual and for some reason the central air wasn’t put on. My initial impulse was to think that the repairs going on did something to the unit but after getting a hold of the project manager and checking things out myself, it turned out that a breaker in the basement blew most likely from the power tools they were utilizing.

This situation could have turned into an ugly scene had I not act fast, not to mention costly had I had the central air company that put the unit in come down to the house to come and rectify the issue. It would have been an unnecessary cost to say the least.

Like I mentioned earlier, the above story has nothing to do with operating a home based business but it does get the point across. There are many things that can occur during the course of your day. For instance, one of the most common is your site going down. The initial thing most individual do is blame the hosting company and get on the phone and start complaining or sending them emails. However, there are other possibilities not the least of which is that your ISP may actually be out of service and if you just took the time to check out other sites, you would realize that was the case.

Another common issue that home based business operators jump the gun about is when somebody reports that they bought a product from you and didn’t receive it. Most individuals will assume right away that something went wrong with the download process without even considering the possibility that the individual might be trying to get the product from you free of charge. Requesting for a receipt would quickly solve that problem.

What I am trying to say is that, don’t jump to conclusions and don’t overreact without properly doing your findings. Sometimes, the actual problem is nothing like what we assume at all. That is why all possibilities have to be adequately explored as well as ruled out before actually deciding what the issue itself is. This can, in several cases, keep you from accusing somebody of doing something that they didn’t do which can ultimately lead to bad blood with prospective clients and clients alike.

Always think before you act.

I hope you find my home based business article useful.
