Scientists Reveal If Men and Women Can Be “Just Friends,” and the Truth May Sound Harsh

“Can a man and a woman be friends?” is perhaps one of the most controversial questions since times unknown. As famous movies like When Harry Met Sally or the TV series Friends have tried to explain to us, men and women are ultimately supposed to end up being attracted to each other.

No matter how much you try to separate a friend from a lover, there is always a question mark put up by people regarding your friends of opposite sex. Before you enter into a debate over it, please read below, as Bright Side explores more about this topic.

Scientists have had questions about this topic for a long time and have been looking for that chemical that reacts in male and female bodies. While women may stick to the notion of “just friendship” between opposite sexes, men might think otherwise.

Research was conducted at the University of Wisconsin by psychology professor April Bleske-Rechek on whether a woman becomes attracted to her male friends or not. It was a survey which yielded amusing results.

The answers in the survey were based on a scale of 10 points and the findings showed that men tend to be more attached to their female “friends,” while women are less attached to their male “friends.” Women are not aloof, they’re just not attracted to their male friends. While men are the ones that sometimes can’t handle being in the friend zone and develop feelings for their female friends.

There was another interesting observation. Almost 200 volunteers were asked to choose a person of the opposite gender with whom they were not emotionally attached and describe the relationship and chemistry between them. They had to pick either “We are friends” or “I feel a physical attraction toward him or her” or check both.

While 42% of men said that they were attracted to their opposite sex friends, only 29% of women admitted to this fact. 17% of men and 5% of women checked both the options.

It was concluded that a lower number of women have shown attraction toward their male friends. Men, on the other hand, have heartily declared their attraction toward their female friends.

In fact, many of the gestures of a female toward her male friend are said to have been misinterpreted by men. So, if you are kind and friendly toward your male friends, chances are, per this study, that you might hear some kind of love confession sometime soon.

More or less, the notion of “just friendship” between a woman and a man has been debunked. It has been proven that this kind of relationship does not align with our natural human tendencies.

9 Financial Tips That Sound Like Good Advice, but Really Aren’t

The internet is full of advice on how to become rich, save money for a large purchase, or at least stick to a budget to make it ’till payday. However, most of these tips don’t work in real life and some of them are actually harmful.

Bright Side tried on the role of a financial advisor and did some research on how to live on a budget. Now we’re ready to tell you which internet tips are the most harmful. And it’s all meant to help you manage your money effectively.

9. Sell your car before it’s too old.

Why this doesn’t work: You should only get rid of an old car only if you have to spend more on its maintenance than you’d spend on buying a new one (even if you’d have to take out a loan). Specialists claim that this should happen only after many years of constant exploitation. It’s impossible to tell the exact number of years since it greatly depends on the car model and maintenance conditions (some cars work pretty well even at an “old” age).

8. Avoid credit cards.

Why this doesn’t work: If you don’t indulge in the temptation to blow your money on a sudden desire and spend it wisely (to pay off tuition, buy household appliances, or save up for emergency situations), a credit card can become a real lifesaver. Besides, regular payments will help you built a good credit history.

Banks usually offer profitable bonus programs and discounts for credit card holders. When you use a credit card, stick to one main rule: pay off the debt in full, not just the minimum balance.

7. Buy things in advance and use discounts and coupon codes.

Why this doesn’t work: An American study showed that most families who buy products in bulk tend to buy things they don’t really need. It’s an attempt to save money in advance: people buy now so they don’t have to buy later. It’s even worse with discount deals (for example, take 3 and pay for 2). Marketers know that customers actually prefer getting something for free rather than paying a lower price for the products. They use this psychological rule since you usually pay a full price for discounted goods. Besides, the quality of these goods often leaves a lot to be desired.

6. Invest money for high returns.

Why this doesn’t work: If financial gurus from an advertisement promise a high return on an investment, they’re likely using a fraudulent Ponzi scheme. This scheme is based on creating a financial bubble: investors get income from new investments and not from the revenue of an organization. Sooner or later (usually sooner) these bubbles burst leaving people looking for easy money with nothing to back it up.

Bitcoin investments are also useless: only dealers can benefit from them. This cryptocurrency is so unstable that it’s impossible to predict anything. Remember, if someone promises you’ll get easy money, asks you to bring your friends to the business, or claims that you should only invest a small amount to get millions, it’s likely to be a fraud.

5. Invest in real estate.

Why this doesn’t work: If you can’t decide if it’s better to make a deposit into a bank or spend money on a down payment for a mortgage, it’s better to choose the first option. You’ll have to invest more in property anyway: think about redecoration, interaction with a lessee (if you’re going to rent it out), paying taxes, and making utility payments.

Dreams about having your own place to live can turn into a nightmare if you take on a mortgage you can’t really pay off. The situation may differ in different regions so it’s better to analyze the real estate market and financial projections first.

4. You’re obligated to buy life and health insurance when taking out a loan.

Why this doesn’t work: When you make a large purchase on credit, a credit manager has to offer you life and health insurance. The idea is that if you can’t pay off the debt, the insurance will cover it. However, it’ll significantly increase the amount of the loan.

In most cases, you aren’t legally bound to buy insurance to take a loan. But you should evaluate your personal circumstances and possible risks of unemployment and sickness to make a final decision.

3. Borrow money from your friends and family so you don’t have to pay interest to the bank.

Why this doesn’t work: If you’re in a difficult financial situation, it’s natural to want to ask your friends and family for support. However, financial problems and debts often lead to the worsening of the relationships and misunderstandings. Besides, people who lent you money will subconsciously try to control your expenses and wait for you to pay them back.

2. Attend several business seminars.

Why this doesn’t work: Business seminars dedicated to personal growth and enrichment attract people with big promises and mottos including loud words like “inspirational” or “breakthrough.” Experts compare these events with cult or multi-level marketing meetings. The only person who benefits from these seminars is the coach.

It’s better to check the reputation of a business coach before you start trusting them and following their recommendations. You can read reviews and find out more about their real achievements by doing a little bit of research. These coaches often post photos of themselves on a white yacht, wearing expensive watches, but in real life they’re just ordinary people. Remember, if a coach promises you easy money for a part-time job and a small investment, it’s likely to be a fraud.

1. Do everything yourself to save money.

Why this doesn’t work: There are some things you can easily do yourself. If you have enough patience, the final result of your work will be just fine. Well, almost… However, very few people, who are cutting down on expenses by cutting professional help, really estimate the cost of their own time.

If you count how much time you’ll spend performing an unusual task and estimate how many useful things you could’ve done instead, the difference in the price isn’t actually that dramatic. The conclusion is that you should trust professionals. This way you’ll save both time and money.

12 Artists Who Had To Change Their Sound to Become Famous

image

For many of your fave artists, success wasn’t instant. Many worked for years as they played small gigs at clubs, released demos no one listened to, and hustled to get to where they are today. And during that time, they went through several musical iterations before landing on the sound that would make them famous. Lady Gaga was a Billy Joel-esque singer-songwriter before realizing she could be more popular if she turned herself into a cartoon character. And there are many more musicians who followed similar career paths. Sure, some might say they sold out, while others might say they pivoted for the better. Whatever the case, their early career choices are definitely a tad surprising if not a little embarrassing. Below, 12 of the most notorious ones.

Katy Perry

Lana Del Rey

Iggy Azalea

Here's Why You Hate the Sound of Your Own Voice

image

Hate the sound of your voice? Here’s why listening to audio recordings make you cringe.

The first time you ever hear your voice on a recording can be a traumatizing experience. In our heads we might have the cool rasp of Scarlett Johansson, but in real life we sound like high-pitched, nasally caricatures of our true selves. For that reason, it’s no surprise that most people hate the sound of their voice.

But like most things in life, the reason for that is a combination of science and psychology. Similar to how we prefer how we look in mirrors than in pictures, our brains love playing tricks on us. But sorry, that “nasally” voice you hear in your Snapchat videos is all you. Below, a few reasons why:

You hear your own voice differently from others.

image

We hear our voices all day, from our inner thoughts to all the times we’ve gabbed with friends and co-workers. So if anyone knows what your voice sounds like, you’d think it’d be you, right? Wrong. You hear your own voice differently due to the way sound travels out your mouth and back into your ears. 

When your friends are listening to you, your voice travels though the air and hits their external ear drums, sending vibrations into the inner ear. However, when you’re hearing your own voice, the sound is coming from inside your body, which means it’s filtered through your ears differently. These inner vibrations transfer in two ways, both externally, from your mouth, and internally, from the bones in your head and neck. The combination of these two pathways is what creates the unique voice you hear in your head that your friends, who only hear the airborne version of your voice, can’t hear.

“When we talk, it’s like everyone hears the sound through speakers, but we’re hearing it through a cave complex inside our own heads,” Martin Birchall, professor of laryngology at University College London, told Time. “The sound is going around our  sinuses, all the empty spaces in our heads and the middle part of our  ears, which changes the way we hear sounds compared to what other people  hear.”

So, in other words, the bones in your face make it impossible to accurately hear your true voice. 

Your brain tricks you into thinking your voice is lower than it is.

image

One of the biggest complaints people have about the sound of their voice is that it’s higher than what they’re used to. Those stupid bones in our faces? Well, they’re to blame for making us all believe we sound like Angelina Jolie when really we sound like Fran Drescher. Those bones create a deeper, lower-frequency vibration that gives our voices a lower, fuller quality, which is also why you might think your real voice sounds “thin” or “whiny.” Apparently, the inside of our heads just has great acoustics. 

You don’t recognize your own voice.

image

So we talked about the scientific reasons for why your voice sounds different in recordings, but when it comes to explaining why we vehemently hate our real voices, that gets more psychological. Due to good ol’ egotism, we tend to favor things that represent us and what we’re more familiar with. Psychologists call this the “mere-exposure” effect, and people subconsciously do this behavior all the time. Because we’re most comfortable and familiar with how we sound inside our heads, we find our true voices to be different and foreign. According to a study, only 38 percent of people recognized their own voices when played a recording of themselves talking. In other words, people don’t like when reality contradicts their imagined versions of themselves.

“Imagine you didn’t have a mirror for six months and you had a perception  of what you looked like,” Dr. Yale Cohen, director of the Hearing Sciences Center at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine, told Live Science. “Meanwhile, you start eating lots of food and you gain lots of weight. If you [suddenly looked in a mirror], you’d be shocked.”

You don’t think your true voice represents the “real” you.

image

In addition to simply not being used to our real voices, on a deeper level, others might hate their voice because they think it reveals things about their character they don’t like. Going back to that list of things people hate about their voice, one of the more common ones is that people think their real voice sounds less confident than what they’re used to. This phenomenon called the “voice-confrontation experience” was explored in a 1966 study.

“The disruption and defensive experience are a response to a sudden confrontation with expressive qualities in the voice which the subject had not intended to express and which, until that moment, [s]he was not  aware [s]he had expressed,” the study quoted.

If you’re scratching your head, Marc Pell, a neuroscientist at McGill University, explained it more thoroughly to The Guardian.

“When we hear our isolated voice which is disembodied from the rest of  our behavior, we may go through the automatic process of evaluating our own voice in the way we routinely do with other people’s voices,” he said. “I think we then compare our own impressions of the voice to how other  people must evaluate us socially, leading many people to be upset or  dissatisfied with the way they sound because the impressions formed do  not fit with social traits they wish to project.”

So, in other words, if you think you sound like a confident James Bond character in your head but actually sound like PeeWee Herman, you’re going to feel obviously pretty crappy about it.

You can train yourself to sound better (or at least hate your voice less).

image

But not all is lost! If you think your voice is truly that bad, there are ways you can make slight alterations to your voice without surgery. There are countless of YouTube videos available that teach you the techniques you’ll need to know to modify your voice and how to even make it deeper. But honestly, the best way to start liking your voice is to start listening to it more. If you can familiarize yourself to the tone of your voice, your reaction to the differences might not feel so cringe-inducing. A lot of people who go into podcasting or radio hosting start getting used to their voices and even start liking it.

“I was hypersensitive as a kid about what I sounded like,” Luke Daniels, an audiobook narrator, told Audible. “I always wanted to sound tougher, bigger, or older.” 

However, over time, he learned to accept his “nasally, Midwestern” voice. He added, “I had to learn to like who I am.”

And that goes for all of us.
