Dr Oz: Do You Look Like Your Name?
Do you think you really look like your name? To test it out, Dr Oz showed a picture of a man and asked whether the man’s name was Bob or Tim. An audience member was able to correctly guess that his name was Bob. Dr Oz explained that according to research, people are more likely to imagine a person named Bob with a rounded face.
Dr Oz: Does Your Name Fit Your Personality?
Then, Dr Oz put up a picture of a woman and asked his audience to guess whether they thought her name was Debra, Jane or Rosie. Her name was actually Rosie but the audience had a hard time guessing that. Rosie then explained for herself that her name is Rose but she’s been going by Rosie since she was little and everyone always tells her it just fits her personality.
So the next time you don’t know a person’s name, go ahead and take a guess because you just might be right!
