Scientists Say They Found a Way to Increase Self-Confidence
In a recent study, published in the journal Nature Communications, scientists identified brain activity patterns that can predict a person’s confidence state and discovered that brain activity can be manipulated to increase self-confidence.
The team of researchers tested imaging technique “decoded neurofeedback” on 17 participants when they performed a simple exercise. They identified a specific brain activity that was connected to low and high confidence. The authors of the study believe that their findings can help us approach uncovering new ways to raise self-esteem and other important mental states.
All participants took part in training sessions. They received a small monetary reward when scientists noted states of high confidence. With the help of these training sessions, the scientists found that they were able to manage self-confidence in participants.
