Despite Scientific Evidence, Most People Believe These Myths

By Peter Julian

There are many things that science backs up with evidence that people still don’t take as truth. For example, many people believe that people are unmotivated when unmotivated isn’t even a real thing. People are just motivated by different things. Some people also believe that willpower is limited, however recent research shows that willpower is actually unlimited. Finally, a lot of people believe that your intelligence can improve over time. According to research, most people have a fixed intelligence that stops improving at a young age.

Key Takeaways:

  • People believe that in general, people are unmotivated. However there is no such thing as being unmotivated. People just have different motivations.
  • People also believe willpower is limited, however there is evidence that shows self-control is limitless.
  • Finally, IQ scores aren’t actually culturally biased. Intelligence is something you’re born with.

“While there is evidence to support the limitations of self-control, goal persistence, and resisting temptation over time (Muraven, 2012), recent findings suggest otherwise.”
