Being a psychology student was double sided for me; a loved it because I loved learning about the (potential) answers to why people do the things they do and are the way they are, but I also ended up as a psychology student because I was was enthralled with what motivates people before I even began college.
The psychology student in me still loves finding articles like this one for Psychology Today. "Interacting with Women Makes Men Stupid" is about a study out of the Netherlands that found a decline in cognitive functioning during mixed-sex interactions. The stronger the physical attraction the more the subject reported feeling confused, foggy, dazed.
So there really is something to being rattled just by being in the presence of someone you're really into. So slow down, take deep breaths and don't make a fool of yourself. Happy Friday!
