6. Believing in the Power of Magic is Healthy
If belief in magic is on one end of the spectrum, then the opposite end is skepticism (not believing in anything), and as Psychology Today reports, according to Peter Brugger, head of neuropsychology at University Hospital Zurich “you wouldn’t want to be at the skeptic end of the spectrum anyway. To be totally ‘unmagical’ is very unhealthy,” he says. In fact, some of his data links a “lack of magical ideation to anhedonia, the inability to experience pleasure.” Are you a believer yet?
