The Pratfall Effect Or Why Some Zodiac Signs Need To Act The Fool – Part 2

The Pratfall Effect Or Why Some Zodiac Signs Need To Act The Fool – Part 2

Where does Sun sign astrology come into this?

Before I get to that let’s look at the type of people least likely to exhibit the pratfall effect:

It was found by an experiment that people who are busy in jobs and activities that require a high degree of concentration are less likely to fall prey to the pratfall effect when compared to those who engaged in activities that require less focus. This was explained well by an experiment that involved selling chocolate bars to college students. They were being offered broken candy bars at a discounted rate. It was seen that the sale of the candy bars was definitively higher when students were approached on a normal day as compared to when they were busy moving towards their classes on an exam day.

Now who fits in with the profile that suggests someone who is usually completely absorbed by what they doing, totally focused and highly competent? Which type of Sun signs are often text book examples of competence and reliability? Which type of Sun signs would be mortified if caught out in an error or appearing to be less than competent? Step forward the Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn along with Water sign Scorpio and Air Sign Aquarius.

It is these folk who benefit most from acting the prat once in a while but can they bring themselves to do so …
