We have discovered that there are genetic differences as to how we see color.

Those differences are also associated with symptoms of dyslexia, migraines, and epilepsy.

What we don't know is if changing the text color/contrast will change cognition.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

In one classic experiment, 70% of participants would help a woman in distress when they were the only witness. This number dropped to just 40% when multiple witnesses were present. How do we explain this bystander effect? Learn more.

Hello,cherry, this is the real sense of nature talking about bystander effect, lovable husband occupy only one wife not many and veceversa, today we see girls are changed like shoes, when a person is about inner enlightenment, he would never do such things, he will do a thing and follow till death nor deceive like bystanders '

Personality is generally thought of as stable through life. While the broad traits such as extroversion and conscientiousness might be very difficult to change, many psychologists believe that changing habits, behaviors, and beliefs that lie under the surface of these upper-level traits can lead to real and lasting personality change.

"Learning would be exceedingly laborious, not to mention hazardous, if people had to rely solely on the effects of their own actions to inform them what to do." - Albert Bandura, 1977
Bandura's social learning theory suggests that people can learn though observation, including direct instruction, modeling, and imitation.

Hi, Kendra. As an educator interested in making psychology understandable, I thought you might be interested in my new book, "How We Heal and Grow: The Power of Facing Your Feelings."  It makes sense of how people change in therapy and in life, and by close observation of change processes, bridges the divide between cognitive-behavioral and traditional approaches. You will find a description on my blog at http://blog.psytx.com along with a link to the Amazon page with very positive reviews. Thanks for reading.  My email address is jsmd@psytx.com
