The Perfect Day! Part 6

2 pm: The boss screams – so what?

Psychologists of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles asked 90 participants to remember either huge disasters in their career or highly successful situation. Afterwards they were asked to judge mistakes by students with the sound of a horn.

The participants who remembered disastrous situations sounded the horn way louder than the others. In average 71 decibel, compared to 55.
