When I opened it, my roommate said that the final score of Hsu was coming out Little c thought of his empty eyes in the examination room, the fried chicken in his hand was not fragrant immediately. < p > < p > after five seconds, Xiao C decided to pretend that he didn’t see it. His inner OS: let’s wait for the official information to come out. After all, enjoying the happiness of the moment is the king’s way. There are many moments in our life when we want to deliberately ignore news. Students who feel that they don’t play a good role in the course announce their grades quickly; they are about to graduate but they receive a notice that they can’t go back to school; when they are about to leave work on Friday, the leaders send a message; in order to keep a sense of surprise, they don’t let their partners say what gifts they have prepared for themselves < / P > < p > in these moments, we often try to avoid the information that makes us unhappy, shake our heads and pretend not to see it, or deal with it later. < / P > < p > in a 2018 study, researchers found that people tend to avoid information that causes pain to them, even if it has potential benefits. The researchers developed a scale to measure how much information an individual receives. < / P > < p > in this situation, even if we are interested in information, we still actively choose not to understand the information. This behavior is called deliberate neglect. People can avoid the feeling of powerlessness brought by bad news and protect themselves from too much harm by deliberately pretending to be stupid. < / P > < p > for example, there are also studies that show that when the stock market stops, investors will check their accounts less than ever before. When hearing about the falling stock price, investors may choose not to check their accounts and avoid the regret and discomfort caused by not choosing the stock. As “there are a thousand Hamlets in a thousand people’s hearts”, different people have different attitudes towards such unpleasant but beneficial information. < p > < p > the researchers investigated the participants’ personal characteristics, including some basic information and big five personality. The survey shows that the degree of information avoidance has nothing to do with the individual’s gender, age, income and education level. However, those with higher scores in openness, conscientiousness and extraversion were more likely to accept information that brought pain to them. However, individuals with higher scores in neuroticism dimension would refuse to accept such information. In other words, those who have a more open attitude towards life are more willing to seek knowledge, explore and accept new ideas, so they agree to accept such information. However, individuals who are more sensitive and emotional in life will feel “ah, how can something bad happen? I’m so upset” when receiving such information. They are more likely to have negative emotions when faced with such information that will bring them unhappiness. As a result, they are also more difficult to accept such information. In life, people with higher openness tend to be more receptive to all kinds of information than those with neuroticism. However, even individuals with high openness and extroversion do not fully accept the information that will bring them unhappiness, but there is a low degree of avoidance. < / P > < p > in the study, researchers surveyed more than 2000 participants’ attitudes toward future positive events, such as whether they wanted to know what the next Christmas gift was, and whether they wanted to know the gender of their children. The results showed that more than 60% of people said they did not want to know what their future gift was, and about 37% said they did not want to know the gender of their children. < p > < p > in such situations, information avoidance can help individuals retain the sense of surprise about important events. This retention of surprise can make people look forward to life more than having to plan everything well. < / P > < p > it seems that we always think that “avoidance” is not good. For example, education from small to large hopes that we can face everything bravely and do not shrink from balabalabala when we encounter difficulties. As an attitude, information avoidance will directly affect our behavior. It can be a problem when we can’t make a wise choice because it’s too evasive of some key information. However, choosing to avoid the information at the moment of receiving the information will let us temporarily not touch the pain brought by the information itself, and also let us enjoy the surprise brought by happy events in the future. < / P > < p > in the face of information that we want to ignore, we should use information avoidance strategy flexibly. For example, when xuetangjun has just found out that the performance of the subject is not good, and suddenly receives the editor’s big review comments, it is better to escape for ten and a half minutes, have a milk tea and have a look at it, sort out the state of mind, and then set out In a life full of uncertainty, we will develop a variety of coping styles. Learn to accept the uncertainty in life in different ways and get along with it, we can really live a good life.
