Press Release Body = Without realizing it, people perceive things according to how
they want to see them, a new study suggests.

\"There is an age old hypothesis in psychology that a person\'s wishes, hopes and
desires can influence what we see,\" said a Cornell University psychologist This
theory had lay dormant for about 40 years, though, without any supporting evidence.

In five separate tests, 412 volunteers from Cornell were presented with an ambiguous

cheating a real possibility.

The automatic, unconscious eye movements which were out of their control were also

Not only did participants routinely see the figure that produced favorable results,
their eye motions indicated that they were never aware of the alternate option being

Other scientists who have studied the connection between belief and physiological
reactions in the eye point to its possibilities in the world of positive thinking
and self-motivation.

Determining whether a person walking towards you is smiling or smirking, how close
