  Self-fulfilling Prophecies

  The self-fulfilling prophecy is a psychological phenomenon whereby a person believes something to be true, acts on that belief and by his actions causes the belief to become true eventually.

  Normally, people all live under certain expectations from others. Once an individual accepts the social expectations toward him as true and realistic, he will first take these social beliefs and then formulate them into his own confidence.

  After that, he starts to respond to his beliefs by taking practical actions. Finally, the social expectations on the individual become true, as a result of his continual efforts.
