DR.John discusses self fufilling prophecy.

A Self Fulfilling Prophecy is a prediction that causes itself to come true due to the simple fact that the prediction was made. This happens because our beliefs influence our actions.Self-fulfilling prophecies is define as a person's expectations of event and his/her behavior based on their expectations, and make the event more likely to occur than make it true. There are two kinds of self-fulfilling prophecies known as self-imposed prophecies and the other one is when self-fulfilling prophecies is used on one person to another. An example of self-fulfilling prophecies that occurs often in our everday life is a job interview. You know how we feel when we go to an interview. We're nervous about messing up and not sure about how to answer some questions. We might think that we're not suit for the job. But then you have a positive attitude that affect how you feel about yourself, because a friend of yours who work at the company said that you are the type of person that the employer are looking for. The interview goes by well, and your positive attitude and confidence got you the job.
