Babies to Adults – Accepts their random
choices as their preferred options
The hardest task of
a human being from birth to death is taking decisions. Whenever we tend to make
a decision the other looks greater than the original one. It doesn’t mean, it
is structured as an aging disease due to physical cause or hormonal imbalance.
It is one of the most commonly inherited habits of every human being when they
are at the age of 6 months old on an average where we get choices of randomly
choosing a toy and keep it as preferred ones.
Babies to Adults
– Accepts the random choices as preferred ones:
We always tend to
choose the nearest option and market them as the best in the world. When
children have a room full of toys and if a particular toy is chosen by the baby
randomly; the baby holds the toy as a liked one as it was chosen randomly. The
baby indeed likes it because it was chosen and dislikes all the other toys as
it was not chosen.
Now, research from
the new Johns Hopkins University states in a journal published in psychological
science – If the toy in the baby’s hand is replaced by another toy, the baby
accepts the second toy as the preferred choice and forgets about the toy which
was originally in hands before. The research was organized for babies from the
age of 10 months to 20 months and all the babies accept the given choice or the
random choice. Shocking – a finding out of the research is all the babies like
the random selection of toys and they don’t move for a choice based on their
taste and preferences.
Experts from Johns
Hopkins University, Alex Silver, and Lisa Feigenson turn to believe that,
people love things because they choose it from the given choices and they don’t
have things they love.
Decision making is
one of an integral part of the success and when our decision goes wrong, we
often hear people saying, he/ she is unfit for the job or even they make your
leadership quality a questionable one. So, to come out of it, always think of a
thing or a product of your choice and aims to achieve the same.
To make it clear,
we all think of buying a dress in a specific color, but when we enter the
textile shop, you will find n number of choices that seem attractive than your
preferred color. Sometimes, the specific color of your choice may not be available
which ultimately makes you like the one available in the shop and you take away
without feeling the secret of love. In this way, we are unknowingly forced to
like the ones which are given to us from toothpaste, shampoo, pin to pen and
pen to the car.
If someone needs to
develop decision-making skills, you can follow 3 steps such as learning from
past experiences, doing things differently, and lateral thinking based on
current trends and technologies.
Though it becomes
tough to stick on to our taste and preferences, let’s educate and give way for
the next generation to choose out of their own choice even from childhood.
