The human brain can act really weird sometimes! It makes us behave irrationally, believe in total nonsense, and can even change our memories. However, every decision we make is made for a reason. So what exactly is it that determines the choices you make?
Viral Link has gathered seven psychological effects that determine your behavior along with several pieces of advice on how to deal with them.

It’s all about the Zajonc theory (social facilitation). You can walk around in an old torn t-shirt at home but act like a lady in public. However, a person’s behavior depends not only on his company but also on the number of unintentional witnesses he or she is surrounded by at a certain moment. For example, a man is likely to give up his seat on a public bus to impress a lady.
