Wobbly Chairs May Be Affecting Your Relationship

If you want a more stable relationship it may be in your best interest to purchase more stable furniture.  As crazy as that may sound it is quite interesting.  It actually makes sense!

A study finds that unstable furniture can influence how we feel about our relationships. Christie Nicholson reports

A wobbly chair is more than just annoying. Believe it or not, it can influence your values, or beliefs about others.

Past studies have shown a link between physical objects and our emotions. Carry a cold drink at a party and you’re likely to consider other guests cold and offputting. Hold a warm drink, and you tend to perceive those same people as warm and welcoming.

Subjects in wobbly chairs judged the celebs to be more likely to break apart, while those who sat on a solid chair felt the celebrity relationships were also solid and more likely to remain intact. The study is in the journal Psychological Science.

I certainly hope no one out there still has a waterbed!!!!
