dawnstarwarp asked:

is there some kind of psychology behind that? (no, you can't post anything without questions about the background)

sixpenceee answered:

Lol!

You are referring to this post:

Well, I do know that people do tend to internalize the beliefs of others. 

For example, there was experiment where students were given a card describing their substitute professor.

One half got a card saying “He is … people say he’s a bit COLD…”

And the other half “He is … people say he’s a bit WARM…”

Just based on that one word, the students had drastic opinions over him. The “cold” side of the classroom basically said he sucks, and that they would never want to have him as an actual professor, while the “warm” side said he was great and friendly. 

While this phenomenon is true it isn’t what applies here. The correct effect would be the mere exposure effect. That is the more you are exposed to something the more you like it.

Guys, please I need your help. I know this isn’t Disneyland or DisneyWorld. It’s my dream college. I want to go to FIlm school, I want to become a director and it’s been my dream to become one. I have so much passion for film making It’s ridiculous. My dream college is over 1,101 miles away from where I live. At first my mother and I were not on the same perspective. She thought I was crazy and would never make it. However, the college called me and found interest in what I can do! I knew that was my chance, so I spoke to my mother again, and unfortunately she hardly agreed this time either. Then I thought of Tumblr, we got a kid to go to DIsneyland, and heck we got a girl a bird! So why not college? If this can get to over 100k notes she says she’ll get one step closer in letting me attend my dream college! I know this might be asking a lot but please help me show my mom that I can make it and chase after my dreams! One reblog can help so much! xx 

Please signal boost this everybody!

"You can’t help who you love" is the sorriest excuse for paedophila/"ephebophilia." If you really loved her, you wouldn’t approach her with romantic or sexual interest until she was old enough to make an informed decision.

You cannot form an equal relationship with someone…
