1. On average, a student in the 21st century has the same anxiety as a patient in a psychiatric clinic in the early 1950s.

we feel less and less socially connected, change jobs frequently, participate less in public organizations, put off weddings and commitments, and generally spend more time alone; we have a lot of questions, we crave wealth and perfect relationships, we have an unrealistic idea of what we should look and behave like; we receive too much information about wars and catastrophes, which creates the feeling that the world is an extremely dangerous place.
2. In just 3 hours it is possible to convince a person that he has committed a serious crime
This can even happen in a friendly environment, like an interview.
Many people know that when we remember an event, we always recreate it. A study has shown that if the interviewer reasonably knows a person’s life, he can add some false details using special methods, thus being able to convince him that he is a criminal.

Only after the rest should the person return to the established task.
