I came to the idea to post this thread on sunday, when I played doppelkopf, a common card game in germany, with some friends. I adviced one of them because I had to sit out one round(you only can play dk with 4 persons, we were 5). He lost terribly. Then he said:
"I will never-ever hear to your advices again!"
"Why? I already stated to you that it would be risky, but the chances were good. I can't give you tipps which will lead to the win with 100%."
"Yeah, and your tipps actually ARE usually good, BUT you always attract the worst-case scenario!"
Another added:"Around you, there ALWAYS happen things that are near impossibility. Sometimes it's good - f.e. killing two guys with one snipershot through both heads in BFBC2(he added that because I did that to him and his teammate^^), but mostly, it's bad."
And in fact, I'm often recognised having/bringing (bad) luck - pc's shut down near me, I occasionally find money on the street or on partys etc.
So, what about you? Are you lucky, unlucky or doesn't happen unexpected things around you? Why, do you think, is this the case? Could it be connected to the MBTI in some way?
