The Science of Well-Being

This week, Professor Santos showed visual illusions to make a point about how humans think. The illusion below, the Ponzo Illusion, was left out. If you’re like most people you will see the line on the right as longer, even though the two red lines are the same length (Go ahead and measure them if you don’t believe it). The illusion works because the distance cues provided by black lines trick our brains into thinking that the right line is “further away” and should be bigger.

Which of the follow statements align with what Professor Santos covered in lecture? (Check all that apply)


Here is the answer of the question: 

  • Our minds strongest intuitions are often wrong
  • Our minds always deliver accurate information to us
  • Knowing is half the battle
  • Knowing is not half the battle
