[Redacted] December 12, 2007 Psychology 105 It Haddock Be You Multiple superstitions exist involving a cause-and-effect relationship between eating behavior and behaviors related to the mind and body. For example, it is believed by some people that eating fish makes a person smarter, a colloquial term often used to describe intelligence. Whether the superstition implies that eating fish over the course of a person’s life leads to an increased intelligence in comparison to those who never eat fish, or implies that a person will observe an rise in intelligence shortly after eating fish for a limited period of time is unclear. However, the second situation is one that easily lends itself to a simple study of behavior. Intelligence is a subject noted for its ambiguity in both definition and testing. It is indeed not a behavior-pattern phenomenon, but rather a term coined and redefined by psychologists who adapt the specific collection of mind logic techniques to its usefulness in any number of situations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
