Adopting an alter ego and thinking of yourself as a separate entity can:
This is known as the Batman Effect.
One way of making it through the circumstances that are devised to compel you to give up is to form an alter ego that always leverages the opportunity.
This is called “the Batman Effect”- coined owing to Bruce Wayne’s continuous struggle to suppress obstacles being a mere mortal that refers to kids doing better in tasks if they simulate some other character who is majorly successful in those tasks.
Earlier investigations have revealed that kids pretending to be proficient media characters continue longer on tedious tasks and do better on executive function tasks versus kids thinking about themselves from the first-person point of view.
Taking the viewpoint of individuals more efficiently than themselves enables kids to reflect on the challenge and perceive it from various angles. It forms mental space or “psychological distance” between themselves and the effort-intensive task and helps them picture an exemplar.
Every effort has been made to ensure that 'Did You Know' facts published are factual and correct. Sorry for any inconvenience.
The Batman Effect is an active cognitive strategy that moves us forward with confidence as we stay in a stressful situation but with our alter-ego leading the charge.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
