Dr Richard Wiseman set out to find why some people are always consistently luckly.
Wise man asked volunteers to read through a newspaper and count how many photo's we're in it.
The people who claimed to be lucky took mere seconds to accomplish the task, while the unlucky
one's took an average of two minutes. Why well on the second page of the newspaper a very large message said "stop counting, there 43 photos in this newspaper" the answer, in short was plain as day, but people who believed they we're unlucky people were far more likely to miss it, while people who believed lucky tended to see it.
