Forer-Barnum Effect


Whenever I browse social media during the day, many pages appear before me, such as astrology pages or a psychological test here, test your personality with the first object in the picture you see, learn, and analyze. Since I involuntarily look at many of them, I guess it increases my chances of encountering it the next time I open it, thank you Google ­čśŐ I wanna talk about Forer-Barnum Effect on this post.

Forer-Barnum Effect

While browsing the pages, sometimes in a horoscope interpretation or an analysis I read, ÔÇťOh, that’s me!ÔÇŁ That’s not what I’m saying ­čśŐ While all these posts cause instant smiles, I know that none of them actually reflect any reality, but maybe these kinds of posts are good when you turn to pleasure and escape from suffering…

In fact, everyone is aware that fortune-telling, horoscopes and astrology are all deception, but there seems to be no one who does not care even from the endÔÇŽ Because wherever I come across pages like this, hundreds of thousands of followers, tens of thousands of viewers of air mercury things or thousands of comments under the postsÔÇŽ

 

Fortunately, we know that there is a scientific explanation for this ­čśŐ There is an effect called the Forer-Barnum Effect, which is called the Forer-Barnum Effect. No, most of the comments reflect the general, but you take it personally. All horoscope comments are like this. You will always seem to find something that fits you, but the event is general. Both astrology and fortune telling etc. all of their reviews are personalizations of something that will appeal to everyone. That’s all ­čśŐ So, none of them have scientific, eighth eye, ninth sense, obscure, retro, chakra, parallel, frequency etc. Whatever it is, none of it has anything to do with personal reality.

Taylor Barnum, a famous American entertainer in the 1940s. We have something for everyone.ÔÇŁ It begins with the realization of how his thought is used for such interpretations.

Forer gives a personality analysis to his students in his experimental work. He says that while handing out his paper to each student, he makes a “unique personality analysis” based on the scores they get from the exams. He then asks students to mark how well his analysis fits them. (In reality, the same analysis is distributed to each student, nothing special to anyone.) The paper given as personality analysis contains the following 13 items:

– You have an intense need for other people to like and admire you.

– You are very open to self-criticism. You need others to like you and admire you, but you also tend to be self-critical.

– You have an important capacity that you do not use, although you can turn it to your advantage. Although you may have some personality weaknesses, you can usually overcome them.

– Your sexual expectations are causing problems for you.

– While you seem disciplined and self-confident on the outside, you are anxious and insecure on the inside.

– Sometimes you have serious doubts about whether you made the right decision or whether you did the right thing.

– You want a little change every time, and you get annoyed if you encounter restrictions.

– You pride yourself on being an independent thinker and view the explanations of others without evidence.

– You think it’s not very wise to open yourself up to others.

– At times you are extroverted, friendly and sociable, at other times you are closed, uninterested and introverted.

– Some of your passions are quite unrealistic.

– Your safety is one of your main goals in life ­čśŐ etc. Whatever it is, none of it has anything to do with personal reality.

Forer asks each student to rate how much of these traits they have in themselves, from 0 to 5. All grades are completed and the average is 4.26 ­čśŐ So most of these features are available to most of the students. Forer then clarifies the truth and confirms his theory by saying that he took this 13-point analysis from an astrology book and gave the same analysis to everyone. Fortunately, Forer has succeeded in proving why such analyzes appeal to people or how people believe in such posts ­čśŐ Although it seems like the reason why everyone adapts these items to themselves, it contains such general statements that it definitely fits us at some stage in our lives. we are accepting. People’s blinding need to hear something nice about themselves, especially the desire to feel special, increases the demand for fields such as astrology and fortune-telling. In this type of analysis, there is nothing that fits people specifically, the secret is; It consists in making a prediction that is specific enough to seem individual but general enough to appeal to large audiences in the population. Afterwards, some embellished words, that’s all ­čśŐ

In summary, it can happen to all of us, it is not special to us, but we adopt it quickly because it makes us feel special. Some awakened people who foresee the future use it very well and this situation has always been a subject of abuse in every period of history. They also make up situations that don’t suit us, their stories never end ­čśŐ In fact, astrologers, prophecies and fortune-tellers who make annual predictions on the world and countries, enter the race for who guessed the most, and we just stare at it ­čśŐ

If we can make fun of the event with fun, what can we do, but if we interpret the events according to the horoscopes by giving money and making our plans according to the horoscopes, we need to think again. The Forer-Barnum Effect… ­čśŐ
