Amsterdam, The chance of a goalie or the goalie to jump to the left or right of the penalty shoot-out is usually 50:50, but this does not apply when his side in the left position.When defeated, goalkeepers tend to be more frequently jump to the right.
In living beings, without realizing there are many activities more often done in the right direction. For example while kissing the lips of people tend to more often tilted his head to the right, while the dog wags his tail more to the right when you meet her employer.
Apparently, the same also applies to goalkeepers when facing a penalty. But more often the tendency to jump to the right occurs only under certain conditions, namely when his team scores in the left position or smaller.
This fact was revealed in research Roskes Marieke, PhD, a researcher from the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. In that study, he analyzed every penalty that occurs in various World Cup matches between 1982 to 2010.
In general, the comparison between the goalkeeper who jumped to the left to the right are the same or 50:50. But when his team specialized in the left position or has a score of smaller, more goalkeepers will jump to the right.
“No matter whether the goalkeeper is left-handed or not, they are more likely to jump to the right when facing a penalty if his team is behind. This is called right-oriented bias,” said Roskes as quoted by MSNBC .
Roskes added, right-oriented bias is the tendency of living beings to assume that the right always leads to something positive. At the World Cup, the success fail tedangan penalty is something that is positive and can make the goalkeeper be a national hero.
But for players who execute a penalty kick, a tendency to kick to the right does not apply in any condition. According Roskes, there is a difference between them because the scoring through a penalty far less prestigious than the goalkeeper who successfully thwart a penalty kick.
