Since working on the Luck Project, I use every opportunity to ask people about their everyday superstitions and personal talismans. These mini talks are very interesting. Today I was taking part in a job interview and I was lucky to hear another mini story.
An experienced tour-guide showed me his personal token. He got it from a Texan tourist on a guided tour of a German castle. Although he claims that he does not believe in it, that he just finds it comforting to have it, he did bring it to the interview. Or did he just “forget” it in his pocket??? 😉
Do YOU “forget” objects of personal significance in your pockets sometimes? Do you bring anything (secretly of course) to your job interviews or exams? I am trying to compile a mini “atlas” of significant objects/talismans/luck-bringers. Some of them are already featured here. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT YOURS!
