This week in The Method Section, Tom takes a look at what we believe and how it influences our perception and how we interact with the world. Superstitious behavior is a classic psychological experiment conducted by Skinner, but does it apply to humans? How do your perceptions of trust, the environment, and fairness alter how you act in certain situations? Music by: Joakim Karud – https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud.
