  • However, those who see technical analysis as a self-fulfilling prophecy argue that these indicators are "right" only because extremely large numbers of people base trading decisions on these same indicators, thereby using the same information to take their positions, and, in turn, pushing the price in the predicted direction.

samoispunjavajuće proročanstvo


Definition from own experience or research:
Pozitivna ili negativna očekivanja u vezi događaja ili ljudi koja mogu da utiču na ponašanje pojedinca, tako da on nesvesno kreira situacije u kojima se ova očekivanja ostvaruju.

Example sentence(s):
  • Uporno tretiranje jednog dela građana - omladine imigrantskog porekla iz predgrađa - kao sumnjivog, "prirodno" sklonog nasilju i kao potencijalnog neprijatelja - moglo bi se u budućnosti pokazati kao samoispunjavajuće proročanstvo. - Naučni članak  
  • “Kada se dakle govori da ce biti drustvenih sukoba na jesen to moze da spada u ono sto se zove samoispunjavajuce prorocanstvo. Ako vlada nastavi da prica da ce na jesen biti velikih socijalnih nemira nije uopste iskljuceno da ljudi prihvate tu pricu i da se upuste u socijalne nemire a onda ce biti mnogo teze o svemu tome pregovarati. - B92 Vesti  
  • I ova situacija je potvrdila da pozorište i danas, kao u antičko doba, predstavlja suočavanje jedne zajednice, polisa, sa samim sobom. S druge strane, pozorište je, još od priča o kralju Edipu, samoispunjavajuće proročanstvo. - Nin
