Superstition is the belief in irrational or inexplicable phenomena as opposed to demonstrable facts and the reasoned theories of science and philosophy. Superstition has traditionally hindered progress, development and the effective use of technology.
Psychologists who have investigated what role superstitions play, have found that they derive from the assumption that a connection exists between co-occurring, non-related events. For instance, the notion that charms promote good luck, or protect you from bad luck.
Superstitious beliefs can have a negative impact on the social well-being of people in society because they are highly associated with financial risk-taking and gambling behaviors.
