No I don't really have any superstitions that I follow or believe in.

However being OCD is kind of like being superstitious.

There are a lot of repetitive patterns I do, some without thinking about it, others almost like I am forced to do or I can't relax or concentrate on other tasks.

If you have ever seen the show The Big Bang Theory, when Sheldon would knock on Penny's door each time saying Penny before knocking again.

That's me (and a lot of other people as well)

Superstitions are behaviors we do, or fail to do, in a given situation because we believe that another is achieved or avoided.

Examples are not going under the stairs because it brings bad luck, or having an amulet with us to attract good fortune.

Tuesdays or Fridays 13 are considered bad luck and it is believed that bad things can happen in those days. In March and February there were two Tuesdays 13, and this week of April there will be a Friday the 13th.

Whether they are "black days" or the practice of rituals that have no sense or rational explanation, many people still believe in them. Which makes one wonder: why do superstitions exist if they do not seem to be very useful?

 from psychology there are many ways to interpret the same phenomenon, everything will depend on the theoretical training of each one.

The psychologist explained that a superstition is understood as a "belief" with certain characteristics.

In principle it is irrational; that is, it is assumed that an action, behavior or event will have a certain consequence although there is no evidence of a logical relationship between the two.

Another characteristic is the attribution that the superstitious person elaborates, which is magical or supernatural.

"Regarding whether beliefs (in this case superstitious) influence the actions of people, it is important to reflect on the forms of construction and relationship with reality"

"The relationship of belief with human activity is expressed and observed in various aspects," he said. "This is evident in clinical work in psychology, where the belief system and ideas that feed a person is a descriptive, explanatory and predictive factor of clinical importance in mental health."

As he explained, beliefs play a definite role despite the "how it happens", it is a complex issue that still holds certain theoretical and experimental controversies within philosophy and psychology.

On the other hand, he said that it is important not to think superstitious beliefs within moral categories, whether they are good or bad.

One of the main characteristics in the development of a cognitive system supposes the capacity of internal coherence, the knowledge of a person is self-referential, the experience is such when it has personal meaning for those who live it.

The academic said that although superstition is currently conceptualized as contrary to reason, in past times beliefs and customs, which today we think as superstitious, were fully justified and charged with meaning within the logic of culture and tradition. popular.

"The superstitious belief was not designed descriptively or explanatively as we are doing now, but it was simply and simply a way to build a world from a context that demanded other ways of representing reality",

On whether superstitious beliefs are growing or decreasing within our societies, Hoyos Canto said that it is an interesting topic and that it can be lent to different interpretations.
