Babies to Adults






Babies to Adults – Accepts their random choices as their preferred options

The hardest task of a human being from birth to death is taking decisions. Whenever we tend to make a decision the other looks greater than the original one. It doesn’t mean, it is structured as an aging disease due to physical cause or hormonal imbalance. It is one of the most commonly inherited habits of every human being when they are at the age of 6 months old on an average where we get choices of randomly choosing a toy and keep it as preferred ones.

Babies to Adults – Accepts the random choices as preferred ones:

We always tend to choose the nearest option and market them as the best in the world. When children have a room full of toys and if a particular toy is chosen by the baby randomly; the baby holds the toy as a liked one as it was chosen randomly. The baby indeed likes it because it was chosen and dislikes all the other toys as it was not chosen.

Now, research from the new Johns Hopkins University states in a journal published in psychological science – If the toy in the baby’s hand is replaced by another toy, the baby accepts the second toy as the preferred choice and forgets about the toy which was originally in hands before. The research was organized for babies from the age of 10 months to 20 months and all the babies accept the given choice or the random choice. Shocking - a finding out of the research is all the babies like the random selection of toys and they don’t move for a choice based on their taste and preferences.

Experts from Johns Hopkins University, Alex Silver, and Lisa Feigenson turn to believe that, people love things because they choose it from the given choices and they don’t have things they love.

Decision making is one of an integral part of the success and when our decision goes wrong, we often hear people saying, he/ she is unfit for the job or even they make your leadership quality a questionable one. So, to come out of it, always think of a thing or a product of your choice and aims to achieve the same.

To make it clear, we all think of buying a dress in a specific color, but when we enter the textile shop, you will find n number of choices that seem attractive than your preferred color. Sometimes, the specific color of your choice may not be available which ultimately makes you like the one available in the shop and you take away without feeling the secret of love. In this way, we are unknowingly forced to like the ones which are given to us from toothpaste, shampoo, pin to pen and pen to the car.

If someone needs to develop decision-making skills, you can follow 3 steps such as learning from past experiences, doing things differently, and lateral thinking based on current trends and technologies.

Though it becomes tough to stick on to our taste and preferences, let’s educate and give way for the next generation to choose out of their own choice even from childhood.
