Psychology Facts About Behaviour
Psychology is the scientific study of human behavior. It’s about how we think, feel and behave. Psychology is a very broad topic, but it’s broken up into different subfields: cognitive psychology studies thinking processes; social psychology looks at how humans interact with each other; clinical psychology focuses on mental health issues such as anxiety or depression; industrial-organizational psychologists study workplace issues like leadership and motivation…
So what do these terms mean? We’ll take you through some common psychological concepts that will help you understand our behaviors better as well as why they’re important!
1. Your heart literally skips a beat when you are attracted to someone. When you find someone attractive, your adrenaline and cortisol levels rise, which causes you to breathe faster, your pupils dilate and your heart rate rises.
There are several things that happen when you find someone attractive. Your adrenaline and cortisol levels rise, which causes you to breathe faster, your pupils dilate and your heart rate rises.
The hormones adrenaline and cortisol are both released when you experience stress or excitement. When they’re released in large amounts at the same time, it can cause a feeling of euphoria–the same feeling you get when you’re really excited or happy about something. In this case it’s a reaction to finding someone attractive!
The pupil dilation response is one we’re all familiar with: we tend to see everything bigger around us when we’re attracted to someone. It’s also thought that this serves as an evolutionary mechanism for attraction because it allows us to detect potential mates from far away (especially important for our ancestors who had few means of transportation).
2. Your pupils dilate when you are attracted to someone. Researchers believe that dilated pupils indicate attraction because it is an unconscious response that happens without you even realizing it.
- When we’re attracted to someone, our pupils dilate.
- We tend to have a natural interest in things that make us feel good such as food, sex and socializing.
- The next time you see someone who catches your eye or make you feel the slightest bit of attraction towards them, try not to look immediately away. There is a chance that they could be looking at you too! It’s so easy to dismiss these situations because it can seem obvious if someone is interested in you or not but don’t be fooled—this isn’t always true when it comes to human behaviour!
3. You can tell whether or not someone likes you by how fast they blink around you. When people like someone, they tend to exhibit what is called ‘receptive behavior,’ which means they make eye contact with a person, turn their body toward them and pull in close.
When people like someone, they tend to exhibit what is called ‘receptive behavior,’ which means they make eye contact with a person, turn their body toward them and pull in close. People who are attracted to you will find themselves blinking more around you (and vice versa). You can tell how much of an attraction there is by how often the other person blinks—if they’re not blinking at all, that’s usually a sign that they have no interest in being around you.
4. You can tell whether or not someone finds you attractive based on where they look on your face. When a person finds another person attractive, they tend to stare at their face longer than usual and focus more on their lips as opposed to their eyes and nose.

If you want to know if someone is into you, notice how long they look at your mouth. Their eyes will also be wider open as compared to normal when they find someone attractive! If they tend to look around the entire face but return often enough to focus on the mouth, this could indicate an attraction but it could also mean that they’re just trying hard not miss anything going on in conversation so it’s less clear cut than just looking at mouths alone (which gives us even better clarity).
Interestingly enough though: people who are being fake about liking other people tend not only avoid looking directly at them by staring off into space instead but also hold eye contact for shorter periods of time which means there’s no way getting around this one unless we’re able-bodied enough ourselves too 🙂
5. Women who wear red are found more attractive by men than women who don’t wear red. Red is a color that symbolizes sex and love in nearly every culture (including the gay community), so wearing the color red could signal that you’re interested in men in general.
Red is the color of blood and passion, making it an obvious choice when it comes to expressing your sexual desires. A study conducted by scientists at the University of Rochester and NYU Langone Health found that men rated women whom they saw in red as more attractive than those who weren’t wearing that particular hue. The researchers also found that even though men preferred women who wore red, they didn’t seem to be more likely to approach them or initiate conversation with them.
6. People with very muscular bodies are found less attractive than average people because they look too powerful for us to handle and will likely take advantage of us or beat us up if we upset them or get in their way.
This is an example of how our perception of others can be influenced in a negative way by their physical appearance.
People with muscular bodies are seen as being less attractive than average people, because they look too powerful for us to handle and will likely take advantage of us or beat us up if we upset them or get in their way. Similarly, they are also perceived as less intelligent and trustworthy.
Keep in mind that this is only a brief overview of some of the most important findings in the psychology of attraction. There are many other factors involved, such as how well you match up physically or personality-wise with someone else. The good news is that there are plenty of resources available if you want to learn more about this topic or do further research on your own!
