The effects of the unlucky charm

The effects of the unlucky charm

Research shows that lucky charms have real, positive effects. But unlucky things have their own kind of power.

The story behind a physical item we own matters

Assigning luck to an object

There are generally three ways we give luck to an object.

  • Through association: A penny you had the day you met your partner.
  • Through symbolism: Like a sock with four-leaf clovers or black cats printed on them.
  • Magical contagion: The idea that there is some essence or physical property that can rub off from contacting it.

Bad associations

According to research, secondhand engagement rings are much less likely to sell if the listing indicated that the previous owner had been through a divorce or a broken engagement. One explanation is that we believe that various properties can be transmitted through contact.

Sometimes, you create the story yourself. The item has to be prominent in the situation. But if the item is branded as unlucky, it's hard to forget the association.

Before We Click Buy

There are now many things to consider before ordering something:

  • Should we add to the burden of the ‘essential workers’ already toiling hard?
  • Shouldn’t we save the money for the uncertain future?
  • Shouldn’t we give it to a homeless charity, to those less fortunate in these troubled times?
  • Is ordering safe?

Shop Small

This seems to be the new mantra among the responsible people who are worried about themselves and their families. Large supply chains have a greater chance of transmitting diseases. Small shops also need our business to survive this catastrophe.

These small shops are also trying very hard to follow all CDC recommendations regarding protective gear and social distancing.

Negativity-Free Meetings

Preserve your sanity in a VC meeting by these methods:

  • Introduce ground rules in the meeting requesting it to be free of negative talk, on the pretext of detoxing the audience/team members and improving their mental health.
  • Intentionally keep things positive, promoting sharing of positive things and ending the meeting on a high note, so that the negative is by default kept out, without pinpointing it.
  • In case a higher-up or a boss is the one with the negative talk, one can bite the bullet and request the person personally and politely to stop or reduce the negative banter.
