What if psychologists ruled the world? In real life?

Can women keep secrets?

1 Comment

Yes, but only for a couple of days

Research for a Chilean winery found that women will typically spill the beans in 47 hours and 15 minutes.

A study of 3,000 women aged between 18 and 65 also found that 40% were unable to keep a secret no matter how personal or confidential.

Fortunately 22% of women forgot what they were told within 24 hours.

But do you want to take that chance?

And on the other side of the coin a community art project set up by Frank Warren in 2005 called PostSecret allowed people to anonymously reveal secrets written on home-made postcards.

There are no restrictions on the kind of secret you can reveal and in the first 2 years 2,500 postcards were displayed as pieces of art. Secrets revealed have ranged from admissions of serial adultery and drug abuse to dreams of ruling the world.
