Encourage your children, he will learn!

Today we will speak about the Pygmalion effect or Rosenthal effect.

What’s happening when your child learn walking? He tries and falls down. At that moment, do you think that he will never arrive and drop out? Of course not! You encourage your child to try again and again because you’re sure that he will arrive, and indeed, he arrive!The Pygmalion effect study supported the hypothesis that reality can be positively or negatively influenced by the expectations of others.

The Pygmalion effect study supported the hypothesis that reality can be positively or negatively influenced by the expectations of others.Rosenthal discovered it by performing the following experiment: he randomly separated twelve rats into two equal groups and then gave each group to six students responsible for making them cross a labyrinth.

Rosenthal discovered it by performing the following experiment: he randomly separated twelve rats into two equal groups and then gave each group to six students responsible for making them cross a labyrinth.He informed the first group that their rats were selected in an extremely harsh manner: one

He informed the first group that their rats were selected in an extremely harsh manner: one should, therefore, expect exceptional results from these animals.He informed the second group that their rats are not exceptional and that for genetic causes it is very likely that they will even find it difficult to find their way into the labyrinth.

He informed the second group that their rats are not exceptional and that for genetic causes it is very likely that they will even find it difficult to find their way into the labyrinth.The results largely confirm the fanciful predictions made by Rosenthal: some rats in The results largely confirm the fanciful predictions made by Rosenthal: some rats in

The results largely confirm the fanciful predictions made by Rosenthal: some rats in group No 2 do not even leave the starting line.

After analysis, it turns out that students who believed that their rats were particularly intelligent showed them sympathy, warmth, friendship, and vice versa.

The experiment is then retried with children at Oak School, San Francisco, USA.

Rosenthal and Jacobson pass the IQ test to all students, then arrange for teachers to learn about the results, suggesting an error in the mail transmission. But these results are rigged: twenty percent of the students, defined randomly, were attributed an overvalued result. At the end of the year, Rosenthal and Jacobson passed the IQ test back to the students.

The result of the experiment shows that one year after the disclosure of the false results of IQ, the 20% overvalued behaved like the rats of the first group: they improved their performance by 5 to more than 25 points, intelligence.

To some extent, the result can be expressed as follows: thinking that someone has a characteristic, we change our own attitude towards that person and influence him/her in such a way that he actually acquires this characteristic or expresses it more blatantly.

IN CONCLUSION, THE MORE WE ENCOURAGE OUR CHILDREN, THE MORE THEY IMPROVE THEIR CAPACITY!!
