Objective: This research aimed to examine the psychological literacy of undergraduate students who major in health sciences and nursing.
Methods: We surveyed 303 undergraduate students using a questionnaire that tests their basic understanding of psychology, view of psychology, and expectation for psychology prior to their specialized education.
Results: We found that respondents (1) had a limited understanding of the objects and methods of psychological research, (2) had a biased view of psychology, undermining the scientific aspects of psychology [as the image of psychology, "nonscientific", "humanities" and "friendly" factors were prominent], and (3) tended to overestimate the effectiveness of psychological solutions on interpersonal problems.
Conclusions: The results indicated that curriculum for the elemental psychological education should be reorganized and reformed at the university.

Type B dominates Japan's Male Figure Skating

I found an article that there are many Type Bs in male figure skating, so I tried special certified athletes over the past 10 years.


Certainly, I found 7 male B athletes out of all the 13 boys -- a majority.
The probability this happens by chance is less than 3%.
With just 10 people of data, this is really a "miraculous" event!
So, at least for the last decade, it is clear that Type B dominates men's figure skating.

Men Certified Athletes 2009-2018
Type O -- 4
Type A -- 2
Type B -- 7
Type AB -- 0
