Remember THIS the next time you play Rock-Paper-Scissors, and we guarantee you’ll win.
Scientists in Zhejiang University in China just studied the psychology behind rock-paper-scissors. Here’s their breakthrough research . . .
1. When a person’s turn is successful, they’ll most likely stick with what they chose for their next turn. So if they beat you with rock, they’ll probably try rock again the next turn.
2. But if the person’s turn ISN’T successful, they’ll usually switch to whatever BEAT them. So if they throw rock and lose to your paper, they’ll switch to paper on their next turn, since paper beat them.
It’s all based on a conditional response . . . something we do instinctively, even if we think we’re just picking randomly.
