Summary

Discover why you were always afraid of a monster under your childhood bed, why people truly believe in their “lucky” lotto numbers, and more with hundreds of quick facts, research-based explanations, and challenging quiz questions on everything from the psychology of our ancient ancestors to the dark side of the world of psychology.

Did you know:
-The fear of losing your cell phone is real…and there’s even a name for it.
-The way you kiss might actually be based in science?
-That gaslighting actually has a psychological “cousin” known as “moonwalking”?

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behavior, which means there’s a lot of ground to cover. But this isn’t your average “intro to psychology” book. Instead, How to Kill an Earworm is here to help you learn those little-known trivia facts you really want to know.

This must-have guide features hundreds of fun facts and challenging quiz questions about psychology, covering everything from influential historical figures who impacted the study of psychology as we know it today to learning psychological principles you might not realize are at work right now in your everyday life. Did you know about the dark side of daylight savings time? What about the way kids’ cereal boxes are intentionally designed to manipulate the child’s emotions?

From “zombie behaviors” to the “doorway effect”, it’s time to dive into over 500 psychological facts you definitely didn’t know before picking up this book!
