While doing research for my new video, I stumbled upon this article. It says;
“When two people are in each other’s company, their brain waves will begin to look nearly identical.”
“This means the people you hang out with actually have an impact on your engagement with reality beyond what you can explain. And one of the effects is you become alike.”
So, just by being next to someone, they’re influencing your habits, behaviour and mindset.
This phenomena might work against you if you surround yourself with people with low standards. But you can also take advantage of it:
If people want to maximize happiness and minimize stress, they should build a life that requires fewer decisions by surrounding themselves with people who embody the traits they prefer.
Over time, they’ll naturally pick up those desirable attitudes and behaviors.
More about this in my new video :)
