HEY This article..i read fom a journal in parapsycology BIORHYTHMS....
Biorhythms were discovered by two scientists working independently of one another. Dr. Hermann Swoboda, a professor of Psychology at the University of Vienna, and Dr. Wilhelm Fliess, a nose and throat specialist, recognized the existence of biorhythms in the early 1900s. Through extensive scientific research, the doctors reached nearly identical conclusions. Each doctor published his discoveries, establishing biorhythms as an area of scientific study. Today, researchers continue to evaluate biorhythms in hopes of determining how they affect the human condition.
Humans have three repeating biorhythmic cycles:
Physical, which lasts for 23 days Emotional, which lasts for 28 days Intellectual, which lasts for 33 days The length of each cycle is the same for everyone. The cycles are based on your birth date, and are tracked in tandem throughout your life. So, you can find out what kind of day you are going to have tomorrow, next week, or in three years!
The physical cycle occurs over 23 days. Throughout those 23 days, the quality of your physical performance will vary, depending on where you are within the cycle.
During the positive phase of the cycle you experience better physical endurance and strength. During the negative phase of this cycle you are more susceptible to fatigue, disease, and coordination problems.
The emotional cycle governs how you feel about and react to certain situations. The cycle lasts 28 days. Some researchers also believe that the emotional cycle is responsible for "bio-luck," the concept that you are lucky on some days and unlucky on others.
Generally, any endeavors you undertake will have a better outcome during the positive phase of the emotional cycle. The higher the sine wave, the better the outcome!
The intellectual cycle governs judgment, decision-making, and memory. Your intellectual abilities cycle over a 33-day period.
During the positive phase of the cycle, your mind is quite sharp — almost as if the synapses in your brain are firing faster. During the negative phase of the intellectual cycle, you may find it difficult to recall information, such as phone numbers and names

Do any of you guys know what kinds of test were done to find this info, how many people tested, the kind of tests used or any of the above. depending on the test, all this info may be crap. i hate to take a negative tone and i think this stuff is really cool, but being in psychology i understand, as many of you guys may as well, that if the tests arnt valid and reliable, the info is crap. If some kind of longitudnal study was done, then great. but i really dont trust anything without seeing the tests and measures first.
