Think that spider is about to attack you? There's a reason for that.

According to studies, your fear of something makes it seem to be closer than it really is.

Researchers have found that our emotions and perceptions actually cause us to exaggerate how close we are to things that freak us out.

Scientists say this means tht our emotions and our perceptions are intertwined in our brains.

Yea. Try telling yourself that when that spider looks like it's five feet tall and about to eat you alive!
