Do you have a pair of lucky undies?
Do you have a pair of lucky undies? Is there a certain pair of women’s underwear you wear when going on a first date or giving a presentation? You’re not alone! One in three students wears lucky exam underwear. Most of us have heard of athletes like Michael Jordan wearing lucky underwear for a big game. Some athletes take this even further, like Detroit Tigers baseball manager, Jim Leyland, who didn’t change his underwear during a winning streak. That’s a bit yuck and I definitely wouldn’t recommend rewearing dirty ladies’ undies.
Do lucky undies actually work?
According to psychologists, lucky undies and other charms or rituals can impact our performance. Psychologists Lysann Damisch, Barbara Stoberock and Thomas Mussweiler from the German University of Cologne conducted a study that showed that superstitions like wearing lucky undies improve your self-confidence. This confidence boost results in being more persistent and enhancing performance.
