Stereotype-Challenging Study of the Day: A British study billed as “the most comprehensive ever conducted on gender driving differences” has concluded that women are better at parking cars than men.
The study, which relied on surveillence camera footage of over 2,500 drivers across 700 parking garages, was devised by professional driving instructor Neil Beeson, and produced by car park firm NCP.
Among its findings: Women are better than men at tracking down spaces, lining up with the parking space, and reversing into spots “by the book.” Meanwhile, men are better at entering spaces while driving forward, and exhibit more confidence than their female counterparts, leading to quicker parking decisions.
“The results also appear to dispel the myth that men have better spatial awareness than women,” said Beeson. “It shows that us men need to give our partners more respect when it comes to parking. The facts don’t lie.”

Yay to women that knows how to park their cars! Me included!

Buying New Experiences, Not Things, Tied to Happiness ›

Oh, so now money can buy happiness. A bit true for me as I find myself most “happy” when I am travelling, visiting places I haven’t been to before and getting to see other people and experiencing culture different from mine.

psychotherapy:

via Psych Central:

A new study suggests that those who spend money to do things are happier than those who spend their money on possessions.

In the study, investigators determined extraverts and people who are open to new experiences are more apt to spend more of their disposable income on experiences, such as concert tickets or a weekend away, rather than hitting the mall for material items.

Investigators, led by San Francisco State University Professor, Ryan Howell, discovered the habitual “experiential shoppers” reported greater life satisfaction.

To further investigate how purchasing decisions impact well-being, Howell and colleagues have launched a website where members of the public can take free surveys to find out what kind of shopper they are and how their spending choices affect them.

Data collected through the “Beyond the Purchase” website will be used by Howell and other social psychologists.

The site is designed to study the link between spending motivations and well-being, and how money management influences our financial and purchasing choices.

In the current study, Howell and colleagues surveyed nearly 10,000 participants, who completed online questionnaires about their shopping habits, personality traits, values and life satisfaction.

“We know that being an ‘experience shopper’ is linked to greater well-being,” said Howell, whose previous research on purchasing experiences challenged the adage that money can’t buy happiness.

“But we wanted to find out why some people gravitate toward buying experiences.”

Investigators determined an individual’s personality via a model that classifies how extraverted, neurotic, open, conscientious and agreeable a person is.

People who spent most of their disposable income on experiences scored highly on the “extravert” and “openness to new experience” scales.

“This personality profile makes sense since life experiences are inherently more social, and they also contain an element of risk,” Howell said. “If you try a new experience that you don’t like, you can’t return it to the store for a refund.”

Researchers believe it may be helpful if people would realize that life satisfaction and happiness can be influenced by their spending habits.

“Even for people who naturally find themselves drawn to material purchases, our results suggest that getting more of a balance between traditional purchases and those that provide you with an experience could lead to greater life satisfaction and well-being,” he said.

The research findings are published in the Journal of Positive Psychology.

I want this bookshelf in my bedroom

We’ve all seen bookshelves, clocks and coatracks made of words. However, this one by Istanbul-based designerMebrure Oral, the words actually help you organize your titles. Books you’ve read go on the “has been read” side and the new ones on the “will be read” side. This is a great way to make sure none of the books you haven’t read yet get lost in a sea of old books. If anything, it will serve as a reminder to crack open those new ones…
