Getting cold feet before your wedding is usually just brushed off as nerves, but new research suggests it might be a really bad sign. When it comes to newlyweds, gut feelings predict future relationship happiness better than self-reported feelings, according to a new study published in the journal Science.

Then, they measured their gut-level feelings about their bond by flashing a photo of their spouse on a computer screen, followed by a positive or negative word (like “awesome” or “terrible”). The researchers measured their reaction time as they pressed a button indicating whether the word they...

Since most people dislike being pushed to see any sort of adviser, I expected Boris to be reticent, if not downright hostile. How wrong I was! After a few minutes of chitchat, Boris himself raised a very personal issue. “I know why Cecily’s confused,” he said sheepishly. “We’ve been dating for months, and we still haven’t slept together.” “Okay,” I said cautiously, not wanting to disrupt a delicate moment. “You see,” Boris said, looking at the floor. “Ten years ago I had a cancer scare.

The Job Habit That Can Burn You Out

Faking it is just as bad in the boardroom: Hiding your real emotions during meetings makes the time less effective–and can leave you so exhausted, you’ll quit, reports a new study in the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology. You fudge your true feelings in order to save face and impress people in a powerful position, says study author Joseph Allen, Ph.D, of the University of Nebraska at Omaha. But while you may think nodding at your boss’ confusing explanation will score you points, focusing on impressions instead of the actual meeting means you’re missing the takeaways from the talk.
