St. Patrick’s Day and the science of luck
ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) – March 17 is Saint Patrick’s Day, but luck isn’t just for the Irish. While over 50 percent of Americans don’t believe in bad luck superstitions like breaking a mirror or spilling salt, many people still attribute opportunities and accomplishments to having good luck. From horseshoes to four leaf clovers, to a penny face up on the sidewalk, everybody has their own idea of a good luck charm. Experts say that unexpected, “lucky” actions tend to come from our subconscious, a phenomenon called pre-emptive perception. So, whether you call it luck, intuition, or just a good guess if it feels right, do it.
