Episode 2: Do I Rely On Statistics?

Have you ever experienced a moment in your life when you became aware of something you had been completely blind to?  Quite a shift isn’t it?  It’s like, how the hell did I miss seeing that?!

I remember a few years back, going car shopping.  My previous vehicle had been stolen a few times (that’s a whole different story lol) and I wanted something practical and less alluring to the car thieves.   So I decided to buy an old silver Volkswagen Passat.

I had never noticed them on the road before.  But sure enough, once I owned one, the little suckers were everywhere and in the same color too!

How could my brain have missed them all those years?  Turns out something told my brain’s little control center not to see them!

We’ll be getting a little nerdy this week!  I’ll take you on a brief exploration of a tiny little control center in the brain.  It might be making some relationship decisions for you that put the odds forever NOT in your favor!

That little control center is called the Reticular Activating System (RAS) and it can be your friend or foe.

So what’s all of this have to do with statistics?  Good question!  Statistics can be an influencer on what the RAS pays attention to and have you unaware of what you’re missing.

In this week’s episode we’ll be:

  • Taking a closer look at statistics and what they really mean for your relationship and dating prospects
  • Showing you the exact things that guide the RAS and what you can do about it
  • Sharing the two things you can do to keep statistics in check and your eyes on the prize!
