I think most of us are somehow superstitious .Some are fearful about number 13,some are fearful if a cat crosses a road while driving.And some people want to wear the same dress in the next interview if he had success with that dress.Would you like to share your opinion about superstition.Do you know any scientific reason behind it? Waiting to see your point of view. Thank you friends. Have a nice day.

I don't hold any merit for superstitions... I think its more of the people believing. If you believe that walking under a ladder will give you bad luck then you will subconsciously set yourself up for a bad situation. Whereas if you choose not to believe in luck, then you create your own luck in a sense... I have no scientific research to shove down your throat, just my personal experiences.

I consider myself as a person who does not believe much in this superstitious issue...However, sometimes those things could happen, and I don't think there is any scientific explanation, yet...Nevertheless, if those occurrence happen, I might related that with divine intervention, although I am not totally believe in this...

I am not super superstitious, but sometimes, I have little glimpses of being superstitious. I always heard that if a black cat crosses the road in front of you that it was bad luck, or if you break a mirror, it is seven years of bad luck...I think those are all just myths. I don't know where all these superstitions come from, but I do know we need to change our thinking regarding superstitions :)

i'm not superstitious, but i have relatives and some friends who are. when there is something to be done and they insist on doing it one way because of superstition, i just go along anyway and respect their decision, because i know it will just lead to a needless debate and inaction. most people who know me well knows that i'm quite rational and liberal in my thinking and views of most things, but it does not mean that i don't respect other people's perspectives. but personally, i don't let superstitions control my own actions and decisions.
