The Luck Factor — Four simple principles that will change your luck and your life

The Luck Factor — Four simple principles that will change your luck and your life – Richard Wiseman

Summary of the book “How to put luck on your side”: Based on research involving lucky and unlucky people, Richard Wiseman gives in this book the principles of behavior to adopt to become luckier, with supporting examples.

Why read this book (or summary)?

It is well known that luck is a random phenomenon, and therefore uncontrollable. So the first reflex of the sceptic would be to move directly to something else. Except that Professor Wiseman advises here a behavior that would allow us to detect, generate, and take advantage of new opportunities, in two words, to attract luck.

Could our attitude to life bring us more luck? In this book, Wiseman affirms this and reveals the principles underlying such an attitude. He did not derive these principles from his own experience alone, but from an extensive survey. Indeed, several hundred people who considered themselves either very lucky or very unlucky contributed to the development of the ideal profile.

In addition, Wiseman demonstrates through his “School of Luck” that one can transform one’s life to become luckier by following the principles and exercises he recommends. Some of the unlucky people in his survey have validated this curriculum, so why not you? Are you already lucky? You’ll be even luckier, because even the lucky ones don’t usually apply all the principles Professor Wiseman recommends.

Structure of the book

After a brief introduction, the initial research is presented in the first part. The second part is the heart of the method: Richard Wiseman presents the four principles of lucky behaviours. The third part is devoted to the application of the principles. Finally, in support of the text, six pages of notes include scientific references.

The introduction

The introduction alone is worth reading. In the evening, tell your friends what led Richard Wiseman, psychology professor and magician, to conduct this original research on the lucky and unlucky. Attention guaranteed. After reading the book, you will understand that Richard Wiseman reacted like a lucky man. Indeed, disappointed that one of his magic tricks did not have the desired effect, he took the opportunity to survey an audience, very divided as to whether or not they were lucky. He senses an opportunity for research. This will contribute enormously to his notoriety.

In this introduction you will also be asked to answer twelve questions that will help determine your lucky profile (Exercise 1). This questionnaire is in fact structured according to the four principles of luck, with three questions per principle. They are included respectively in exercises 6, 8, 11 and 14, given in this summary.

Part One: The Initial Research

Chapter 1: The Power of Luck

Wiseman relates here the role of luck in the lives of such personalities as Ronald Reagan, Barnet Helzberg, Warren Buffet, Sir Alexander Fleming, Harry Truman, etc. He also shares his own experience: how, as a child, he went to the wrong shelf in a library and came across some magic books. A “mistake” that will lead him to become a magician. He invites the reader to also question the effect of chance in his own life (exercise 2).

So in his first survey Wiseman interviewed people of all ages, professions, men and women. He asked them if they considered themselves lucky or unlucky in eight areas of life, including career, relationships, personal life, health, and finances. Of all the respondents, half considered themselves consistently lucky, that is, in several areas of their lives. Another 14% said they were unlucky in all of these areas. In other words, a significant proportion (64%) felt that luck (or bad luck) guided their lives.

However, a random phenomenon could not produce such consistent results. There had to be a cause for this systematic luck or bad luck. Wiseman then decided to focus further research on these two groups: invariably lucky or unlucky.

Chapter 2: Lucky and Unlucky Lives

Wiseman describes the extremely fortunate and unlucky lives of people participating in his survey. One can only envy Jodie who decides to change her life at the age of thirty and for whom everything seems to miraculously take place: decisive encounters, conference opportunities, an ideal new home in another city. On the other hand, we feel sorry for Susan who collects accidents, to the point of suffering eight of them in a single day.

Do the lucky ones have a psychic gift? Wiseman will use a radio program to answer this question: at the same raffle, among the 700 participants, the lucky ones did not win more than the unlucky ones (the form to classify the lucky, unlucky and neutral ones is given as exercise 3). For the individual numbers in the draw, no correlation appeared between winning numbers and those more frequently chosen by the lucky group, nor vice versa. So, no, the lucky ones do not possess a psychic gift. Funny though: twice as many lucky people as unlucky people expected to win.

In addition, the lucky ones generally show greater satisfaction in their lives in all areas: life as a whole, family life, personal life, financial situation, health, career. This satisfaction test is given in exercise 4.

Part Two: The Four Principles of Luck

Chapter 3: Maximize Your Opportunities

The principle: the lucky ones create, notice and seize the opportunities.
Is this ability a matter of state of mind or personality?

To answer this, Wiseman used the “OCEAN” model (Openness, Consciousness, Extraversion, Friendliness, “Neurosism”) to classify personalities. According to the tests carried out on the two groups (lucky/unlucky) three traits of this model appear to be decisive: extroversion (+), “neurosism” (-) and openness (+). Here is how they manifest themselves and promote the application of this principle.

Sub-principle 1: The lucky ones create and maintain a network.

The lucky ones turn out to be more extroverted. They offer themselves more opportunities by meeting a large number of people, acting as a “social magnet” and keeping in touch. This third point seems to be the most important.

But how does one become a “social magnet”? Why do we engage in more conversation with them? According to Wiseman, this type of person has an engaging body language: he smiles, maintains eye contact and his gestures are “open”: he shows the palms of his hands, does not cross his arms, walks towards the person he is talking to and listens attentively.

Thus, according to the author, a network of luck is a network of people: it is through it that one will have new opportunities. He illustrates this sub-principle with numerous examples taken from among the lucky ones in his survey.

Sub-principle 2: The lucky ones have a relaxed attitude to life.

The lucky ones are relaxed and therefore notice all the good opportunities, even if they are unrelated to the problems they are momentarily preoccupied with.

To demonstrate this point, Wiseman designed the following experiment. He asked his “guinea pigs” how many photographs were in a newspaper. It was easy: just flip through it and count. The most meticulous went through the journal twice to check if the count was correct. Others barely opened the newspaper; on the second page they read this: “stop counting there are 43 pictures in this newspaper”. This message was written in large print, but most, too focused on their task, did not see it. For the same reason, they also missed the chance to win £100; further on, an ad halfway down the page read: “stop counting, tell the expert you saw this and win £100”.

Who has seen these messages? Relaxed and casual people. They all had a very low “neuroticism” score, as opposed to tense and anxious people. As a result, they are more likely to notice opportunities even when they are not expecting them.

The lucky ones in the survey confirm that they have found opportunities in newspapers, magazines, on the radio, on the internet, in advertisements, etc.

The 5th exercise is a visualization. The reader relives a situation where he or she has missed an opportunity to chat with someone who is a priori interesting or attractive. He must then imagine that he had the audacity to make contact with him. What positive consequences would have resulted?

Sub-principle 3: The lucky ones are open to new experiences.

The lucky ones are open-minded people; they like to try new experiences, taste all kinds of food, meet new people. They appreciate the unpredictable, the surprise.

Many even make decisions at random or by self-imposed constraint. For example, one lucky participant, before going to parties, would decide on a color and try to get to know people wearing that color of clothing. Chance offers unusual paths, and thus new possibilities. This idea is also the basis of creativity, as you will read here.

Same opportunities and different lives

In the following experiment, two people, one lucky (Martin) and one unlucky (Brenda), were put in the same situation. They had to go to a bar, get a drink and go home. The experimenters had placed a £5 bill on the sidewalk just outside the entrance to the bar. The bar had four tables; four people, one at each table, were hired for the experiment. One of them was an exciting businessman.

Martin was the first to enter the bar. He immediately noticed the ticket. He sat down next to the businessman, introduced himself, offered him a coffee, and began the conversation.

When he left, a new ticket was placed at the entrance. Unfortunately, before Brenda arrived, a young woman noticed the ticket and took it. The organizers placed a new ticket, but Brenda entered the bar without seeing it. She ordered coffee from the counter and also sat down next to the businessman, but remained silent.

Both participants were then asked to describe their day. Brenda’s day had been without any significant events. Martin enthusiastically described how he found a £5 bill on the street and had a very pleasant conversation with a businessman in a bar.

Two same opportunities, different lives.

Test your ability to maximize your opportunities

In Exercise 6, Wiseman takes up the first three questions of the Lucky Guy profile. By assigning a score of 1 to 5 to the next three statements, we measure extroversion, serenity, and openness respectively. The score of the lucky ones is at least 12.

  1. I sometimes chat with strangers in a supermarket or public place.
  2. I don’t tend to worry and I am not anxious about life.
  3. I am open to new experiences, such as trying other types of food or drink.

Improve this ability

Build and maintain a network:

*Adopt friendly body language: smile, uncross arms and legs, hands away from the face, make eye contact, connect with more people.
*Each week, engage in conversation with at least one friendly person you don’t know. Be natural. Try open-ended questions-not ones where the person you’re talking to can answer yes or no. If the contact is good, suggest a new meeting. Above all, don’t be afraid of rejection.
*Every week, contact someone you’ve lost sight of for a while. Spend ten minutes on the phone with them and ask what is happening to them.

Develop a more serene attitude towards life:

*Look everywhere around you: on the sidewalk, in newspapers, on the internet; listen to the radio.
*Look at life with the eyes of a child, without expectations or prejudices.
*Have fun, let yourself be surprised.
*Try relaxation, meditation, visualization.

Be more open:

*Take different paths to work, for your daily walk.
*Make a list of six new experiences that you would like to have: practicing a sport, learning a language, visiting a city, etc. Choose one at random, using a dice. *

Chapter 4: Listen to your intuition

The principle: the lucky ones rely on their intuition.

Sub Principle 1: Lucky people make good decisions by listening to their intuition and following their instincts.

Whether it’s financial matters, career choices, business decisions, or personal relationships, most of the lucky ones in the survey rely on their intuition. As for the unlucky ones, many acknowledge that ignoring their inner voice has led them into disastrous situations.

As Exercise 7, you will need to make a list of situations in which you were satisfied that you listened to your intuition. Describe all the consequences. Do the same for situations where you regretted not trusting your instincts. Like many people, you will probably find that the biggest failures occurred when you ignored your inner voice.

A series of examples taken from the lives of the people surveyed illustrate the fundamental role of the unconscious in a whole series of crucial decisions.

Sub-Principle 2: The lucky ones focus on strengthening their intuition.

To better connect with their intuition, many lucky people either (1) meditate, (2) let their problem rest and come back to it later, (3) try to clear their mind, or (4) go to a quiet place. The unlucky systematically make less use of these techniques; the most significant difference is in the meditation: the lucky group has 20% more meditation practitioners.

Test your ability to rely on your intuition

In Exercise 8, Wiseman takes up the continuation of the Lucky Guy questionnaire. By assigning a score from 1 to 5 to the three statements below, we measure your ability to trust your intuition. The lucky ones have a score greater than 7.

*(4) I often listen to my instinct and intuition.
*(5) I have tried several techniques to strengthen my intuition such as meditation or going to a quiet place.

Improve this ability

Listen to your intuition. When you need to make an important decision, try this visualization exercise. In a quiet place, close your eyes and take a deep breath. Imagine going to visit a wise man in a secluded place. You talk to him or her about your problem and the different options available to you. Describe how you feel taking each one. Let yourself go, be frank and honest. When you have finished your conversation, open your eyes.

You might also imagine that you are choosing an option. Write a letter – to someone who may or may not be affected by your decision – explaining that you took that option and why. Then stop. How do you feel? What does your inner voice tell you?

Reinforce your intuition. Practice meditation exercises three times a week. For example, in a quiet place, close your eyes and repeat the same word or phrase over and over for ten minutes. This will cleanse your mind.

Chapter 5: Expect to get lucky

The principle: the expectations of the lucky ones help them to realize their dreams and ambitions.

Sub-principle 1: The lucky ones expect their luck to last.

Faced with a questionnaire about the chances of positive events in their lives, the lucky ones are very optimistic. For example, the fact that they are said to have talent, that they will look younger than their age when they are older, that they will have a good time on the next vacation, etc., is a sign of optimism. In Exercise 9, Wiseman suggests estimating the chance that such events will occur in your life.

In contrast, if the questionnaire refers to negative events, the lucky ones attribute a very low probability to them, unlike the unlucky ones. For example, having insomnia for a week, becoming obese, making a bad career choice, etc., are all negative events. In Exercise 10, you are asked to estimate the chance that eight unfortunate events might occur.

In fact, most people expect their future to look like the past. And when an unpleasant event occurs in a lucky person’s life, it does not affect their perception of the future. On the contrary, when a lucky event occurs, the unlucky are convinced that it will not last.

The power of our expectations

Our expectations have a huge impact on what we think, feel and how we act. They have a tendency to become self-prophetic. To illustrate this point Wiseman cites two astonishing studies [1], [2].

In the first, high school teachers are told that some students – in fact randomly selected – have been identified as “late maturers”: they will most likely succeed in the future. After several months, these students were indeed better on the tests than the others. Without realizing it, the professors had encouraged them more, asked them more questions, and so on. The teachers’ expectations had transformed these students; their expectations had been realized. However, it seems to me that this research shows that the expectations of others can also have an impact on our lives.

In the second study, a reaction time was measured: participants had to push a button when a light came on. In the first group the participants are asked to try to be as fast as possible. In the second group they are asked to imagine that they are fighter pilots with hyper-fast reactions. Surprisingly, this group obtained better results.

Sub-Principle 2: The lucky ones try to achieve their goals even if their chance of success is low and persevere if they fail.

The unlucky ones often give up even before they start; they do not participate in lotteries, competitions or contests because they are convinced they will fail.

In one experiment, Wiseman showed participants two puzzles, specifying that one of them was unsolvable. He claimed to have randomly chosen the one he asked them to solve. 60% of the unlucky ones were convinced that they had received the insoluble puzzle, compared to 30% of the lucky ones who had all received the same one. Furthermore, in another experiment, the author noted that the lucky ones were much more persevering in solving an insoluble puzzle than the unlucky ones.

This confidence in the future does not necessarily encourage the lucky ones to take ill-considered risks or to fail to be well prepared. In terms of health, for example, the unlucky feel that there is nothing they can do to change the situation. The lucky ones will take care to have an adequate diet, exercise, and sleep. On the other hand, the unlucky ones are more anxious, their immune system is affected and they are more likely to have accidents.

Sub-principle 3: The lucky ones expect positive interactions with those around them.

The lucky ones expect to meet interesting, happy and fun people. They are confident that their interactions with them will be fantastic. At work, they expect to find competent and productive colleagues and to participate in effective and successful meetings. The expectations of the unlucky ones are completely opposite. And most of the time these expectations are realized.

To understand this phenomenon, one must realize that the interaction depends on both parties. Having a favorable a priori makes the other party feel more comfortable and encourages them to give the best of themselves. The following study corroborates this fact. Men were given pictures of two women, one very attractive, the other not at all. Their telephone conversation with one of the women was recorded. In fact, they were talking to the same person, but those who talked to the woman they thought was pretty were much more approachable. This influenced the woman’s behavior. When people were asked to judge the woman’s attractiveness on the basis of the telephone conversation, the result was in favor of the woman who was considered pretty.

How can we create the future we dream of? One lucky person in the survey shares his own technique; he imagines himself in the situation where his dream has come true, and he repeats it to himself at night, before going to sleep. Often the dream comes true. When he is expecting an important phone call, he focuses on the person and imagines him in a positive attitude towards him, which is bound to happen.

Test your ability to design a lucky future

Exercise 11 continues with the three questions related to the third principle of your lucky profile. Give a score of 1 to 5 to the following statements. The lucky ones have a score of more than 11.

*I almost always expect pleasant things to happen to me in the future.
*I tend to get what I want out of life, even if my chances are minimal.
*I expect the people I meet to be pleasant, friendly and helpful.

Improve this ability

Affirm your luck. In the coming weeks, start your day by saying out loud: “I am a lucky person, today will be another lucky day. I know that I can get even luckier in the future. I deserve luck and I will get it today.”

Plan your luck. Identify your life goals for the short, medium, and long term. Make three lists for each term. Think about goals in all aspects of your life, both personal and professional. Be specific; your goals should be quantifiable and attainable. Eventually, set dates for their achievement. Regularly review and update your lists. Observe your progress.

Be persistent. Take a break. Try another method. If you are about to give up, try this. For a given goal, divide a page vertically. On the left, write down “benefits”, on the right, “costs”. Imagine all the positive consequences of achieving the goal, write them down. In the other column write down the efforts and actions to achieve it. Take a step back. You should be more motivated to continue.

Expect to have good interactions with the people around you. Project yourself into a bright future. Try this visualization. In a quiet place, sit down comfortably, take a deep breath. Imagine with as much detail as possible the future situation, the caring attitude of those around you, the skills you demonstrate. Anticipate what may happen and how you will deal with it, always successfully. Enjoy the situation, have fun. Concentrate on the success of the event and, as a watermark, of your objective. Open your eyes and make your expectations the reality of tomorrow.

Chapter 6: Turning Bad Luck into Good Luck

The principle: the lucky ones are able to turn their bad luck into good luck.

Sub-principle 1: The lucky ones see the good side of their bad luck.

A study shows that at the Olympic Games those who won a bronze medal are generally happier than those who won silver. Silver medallists blame themselves for not making the extra effort to be in first place. Bronze medallists realize that they came close to missing out on a podium spot.

Our ability to imagine what could have happened rather than what did happen is what gives us a sense of satisfaction. As the 12th exercise, Wiseman offers three unpleasant scenarios in which we have to evaluate our luck. The lucky ones often imagine even worse scenarios and most of them feel lucky to have escaped from them.

In disastrous situations, the lucky ones always look to those who were even unluckier. They always compare their situation to a less enviable one. The unlucky take the opposite point of view.

Sub-principle 2: The lucky ones are convinced that their bad luck will have a long-term positive effect on their lives.

Joseph, a participant in the survey, was sent to prison for four months as a young man. He believes it was the biggest stroke of luck of his life. However, he was caught robbing with two friends who managed to escape. While Joseph was serving his sentence, his two friends took jobs for criminals who had a reputation for carrying weapons. The police surprised them and fired: one of them lost his life, the other ended up in a wheelchair. Joseph thinks that if he had not been in prison, his fate might have been similar to that of his friends.

Wiseman himself has often experienced this phenomenon: a stroke of bad luck can be very profitable! The theft of a briefcase that he needed for his last magic trick prompted him to quickly find a new and better trick and win a prize.

So, if the lucky man has a stroke of bad luck, he expects that everything will work out in the long run.

Sub-principle 3: The lucky ones don’t dwell on their bad luck.

The lucky ones focus on the future and leave the past to the past. If they can’t change a situation, they think about something else. It may appear to some that the failure in question is not so important, so they focus on all the good things in their lives.

When we dwell on negative events, we tend to feel sad. And vice versa for happy moments.

Memory even seems to be affected by mood. The following experience is surprising. Two texts were given to people: one, very serious, about the slaughter of dolphins in tuna fishing, the other, very funny, by Woody Allen. By cleverly forcing one group of people to smile and another to frown, the researchers noted that those who smiled remembered more details of the funny story and vice versa.

In suggesting to survey participants how they would react in three failure situations (Exercise 13), Wiseman concluded that The lucky ones would have persevered and learned
of their failures; they would have explored other avenues, consulted experts; the unlucky ones would have simply tried to live with their failures.

Sub-principle 4: The lucky ones have a constructive attitude to avoid more bad luck in the future.

The lucky ones see their failure as a challenge to improve while the unlucky ones learn nothing from it. If all conventional solutions fail, they try to think differently and think outside the box.

The case of Emilie who had a serious accident when she was hit by a car is an edifying one. Despite the hit-and-run, she decided to sue and managed to receive enough insurance money to change her life, decided to move and found a job in her dream sector. In her life the best things happened to her through the worst events.

The unlucky ones are also significantly more superstitious than the lucky ones. In his survey, Wiseman noted that for many of them, this type of thinking has had a very negative effect on their lives.

Test your ability to turn bad luck into good luck.

Exercise 14 asks four questions related to the fourth principle of your lucky profile, each addressing one of the subprinciples. Give a score of 1 to 5 to the following statements. Lucky people score more than 16.

*I tend to see the bright side of everything that happens to me.
*I believe that even unfortunate events will turn out to be positive in the long run.
*I don’t dwell on what has gone wrong for me in the past.
*I try to learn from the mistakes I’ve made.*

Improve this ability

In the face of bad luck try this:

*Imagine scenarios even worse than the one you’ve experienced.
*Ask yourself if this unfortunate event really matters.
*Compare yourself to people who are even less fortunate.
*Imagine how, in the long run, this event could bring you other positives this time.

To better overcome the effect of an unpleasant event, the lucky ones recommend spending about 30 minutes to get rid of negative emotions (screaming, crying, hitting a punching bag, etc.). Then, they advise to distract themselves. A few ideas:

*Do some physical exercise.
*Watch a funny movie.
*Think of a happy event that happened in the past and relive it by visualizing it.
*Listen to music that makes you feel good.
*See and hear from friends.

To find constructive solutions in case of failure:

*Don’t assume that there is nothing you can do about it. Make a decision to take control rather than position yourself as a victim.
*Act now, not tomorrow.
*Make a list of your options; look at the situation from different points of view. Ask your friends what they would do if they were you.
*Make a plan to move forward.
Most importantly, start to solve the problem that caused the failure, or is the result of the failure. Focus on solutions rather than failure.

Part 3: Creating a luckier life for yourself

In this last part, Wiseman describes his project to turn unlucky lives into luckier ones.

Each participant was given a “luck diary” in which they had to answer a series of questionnaires and record their thoughts.

The first questionnaire was the Lucky Profile Assessment (questions from Exercises 6, 8, 11 and 14 above). The second questionnaire is a quantification of the feeling that events would systematically go in favour or against the participant (exercise 3). The third questionnaire is an evaluation of the degree of satisfaction in different areas of life (exercise 4).

The answers to these questionnaires at the beginning and end of the training course make it possible to quantify the participants’ progress.

Then, in individual interviews, Wiseman gave them exercises 12 and 13. Finally, he described the four principles and 12 sub-principles used by the lucky ones and gave them a summary of the book.

A week later, he met with each participant again and gave them the exercises to improve each skill (proposed in this summary at the end of each chapter).

The rest of the book commits you to follow the training to become lucky.

Chapter 7: Learning to Get Lucky

If you want to get luckier in a month, here are the steps to follow.

Write and sign a statement committing to try to incorporate the techniques proposed in the coming month and promise yourself that you will devote sufficient time to do so.

Establish your lucky profile. Complete the two questionnaires (Exercises 6, 8, 11 and 14 and the satisfaction questionnaire). The respective scores in exercises 6, 8, 11 and 14 will already give you indications as to the skills you need to develop and therefore the exercises to introduce into your daily life.

Incorporate the principles and techniques into your life. Following the plan you identified in the previous step, you will strive to practice the recommended exercises.

Finally, keep a journal. Each day, write down the happy events that have happened. Try to record as many as you can. Each morning, read the lines from the day before.

Chapter 8: Graduates

In this chapter, Wiseman reports on participants’ experiences after one month of “luck school,” following the program described in the previous chapter. Based on the two questionnaires alone, after one month Patricia’s luck profile improved by 75% and her sense of luck went from -4 to +3. Carolyn’s profile improved by 85% and her sense of luck went from -3 to +6.

But luck school has not only transformed the lives of the unlucky, it has also allowed the lucky to increase their scores. Robert’s lucky profile increased by 40%; Joseph’s profile increased by 50% and his sense of luck increased to +6.

In total, 80% of those who attended the “school of luck” felt their luck had increased. On average they estimated an increase of 40%, but more fundamentally, they were more satisfied with their lives.

In the space of just one month they were able to create more opportunities, make better decisions, transform their bad luck and look forward to an even brighter future.

Chapter 9: After the Luck Factor

After the research described in “How to get luck on your side”, Wiseman turned his attention to more specific aspects of luck. The first project looked specifically at luck in relationships. The second, the relationship between luck and structures in society. Finally, the third project aimed to apply the principle of the luck school to a society or organization to improve its functioning and income.

Luck in love

In addition to the four principles of the lucky ones described above, Wiseman found that the lucky ones who were satisfied in their heart relationships had the gift of finding people whose psychological profile was close to their own.

When he compared one by one the scores of the exercises designed to establish the profile of the lucky person (exercises 6, 8, 11 and 14), he found that these differences in scores revealed differences in psychological profiles. Also, according to the first results of the research, if we add up the differences for each sub-questionnaire, low values (between 0 and 10) within the couple would guarantee a lasting relationship.

Luck and social network

For Wiseman, the first principle to increase his luck is to work on his network, because according to him, luck comes through him. In this new project, he focuses only on this aspect and finds a very strong correlation between people who have a very large network and those who consider themselves lucky.

Making an organization luckier

Wiseman hired a company’s staff in the school of chance. As with the participants in his training, each individual perceived a sense of improved luck in his life. But more interestingly, 75% felt that the company itself had improved its luck: customers seemed more confident, staff were more open, sales were higher.

Why buy the book after reading this summary?

Read the book if you are interested in more precise statistics, if you feel the more detailed exercises are necessary or if you are interested in more psychological research.

You will find many real-life examples illustrating the different principles in the book, whether they come from the lucky or unlucky people or from the author. The scores for all the statements related to the profile of the fortunate are given in detail for each group. Psychological experiences and magic tricks complete the survey.
