A Good Example About The Deception of Mind

Why We Can't Trust Our Brain


Not only did evolution design our bodies, but it also designed our minds and how we think and reason.

Each day we must make countless decisions that are critical for our well-being, including decisions regarding what to eat, whom to befriend, whom to trust, whom to deceive, and so on...
For Centuries, psychologists, philosophers and students of human nature have been probing how and why humans lie. But it was only in the mid-1900s that the study of deception emerged as a subject of popular scientific inquiry.

From thousands of controlled scientific studies and the field research done during this relatively short period, researchers and criminal investigators have amassed a considerable body of knowledge about deception—and how to detect it.
  1. Humans are lied to as many as 200 times a day.
  2. Humans detect lies with only 54% accuracy.
  3. Between 75% and 82% of lies go undetected.
  4. Of the lies we tell, 25% are for someone else’s sake.
  5. Children begin deceiving as early as age 6 months.
  6. Avoiding eye contact is the most presumed sign of lying around the world—even though it’s false.
  7. One in six juries reaches an incorrect verdict.
  8. Training can improve a person’s lie detection ability by 25-50%.    
In this video, I'll give you a good example  about the deception of Mind, suppose that I gave you something and you but this thing somewhere after that you find this thing became different than you think and you are sure that nobody do anything about this change, then you will be deceived and you will not trust your mind that that thing is changed by somehow regardless who changed it.

Men all over the world are attracted to women who have a relatively youthful appearance. If you doubt this, just ask any woman over 40 or look at the billions of dollars spent by women trying to look youthful (In fact, Americans spend more money on their appearance than they spend on education). Or think about how many men leave their young wives for older women.

Now, the reason that men are attracted to youthful women is straightforward. Such preferences are not because of our "culture" or the "media" - rather in the game of life, such preferences were useful to the men who just happened to be attracted to youthful looking women.
