Tricks of Time Perception

Time is an illusion. Why does the return journey seem shorter? Where does the saying “the watched pot never boils” come from? Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun? The multivariate phenomenon of time perception is the answer. Time perception refers to the subjective experience of time, which is affected by the sensory and cognitive process. Psychologists have done research and created theories to identify and quantify distortions and illusions of our experience. Based on four psychological models of time perception, Time Wizard is a toolkit which contains tricks to slow down or speed up your perception of time. You can’t literally lengthen or shorten your life, but you have it in your power to make it seem distorted.
