In a study carried out for Northwestern University in Illinois this month, it was discovered that those who were superstitious were really crying out for order and control in the world.
Professor Adam Galinsky, who led the study, said that "mental gymnastics" such as superstitions were more likely to affect those who desired a grip on their lives, with lucky socks
and other legwear
being one of the symptoms commonly found in such people.
He continued: "While some misperceptions can be led or lead one astray, they're extremely common and most likely satisfy a deep and enduring psychological need."
According to a recent report for Deseret News in Utah, it was noted that baseball players were more likely to play better with lucky socks
for the placebo effect alone.
