random thought on peoples reputation

Postby thomxs.c » Wed Oct 03, 2018 12:02 pm

Just curious as to if there is any phycology behind the human mind and positive and negative experiences
I feel like positive feelings are remembered far less that those of negative feelings. And this can then be applied to peoples reputation. I feel like I can only explain this thought with an example: a student as two teachers, Teacher A likes him a lot whereas Teacher B does not. teacher B has know the student for a long time and teacher A is relatively new. If teacher A and teacher B were then to confer on the behaviour and demeanour of the student and Teacher B tell Teacher A that he/she does not like that student and that the student is 'trouble', why is it that this is then the opinion of Teacher A of at least largely. Why do people hear others opinions and automatically take them as theirs?

any responses would be much appreciated

regards

Look into the “mere exposure effect”. It is a type of cognitive bias.

Thank you Richard@decisionSkills this is really helpful and I'm finding the mere-exposure effect a fascinating topic at the moment.
