According to the study of the University of Notre Dame studies of students with 103 pairs of roommates surveyed students with a tendency to think things toward thinking things in a bad direction and continuing to blame on their own faults, It is clear that this "cognitive vulnerability" is found in students in the same room as people who are less likely to fall down, approaching the darker state as well. The survey said that it was held for three months for university first graders who are in a big turning point in their lives. Students can not choose their own roommates, roommates are randomly chosen, so it seems that it was the best for the sample. It is known that the risk of becoming depressed as the cognition becomes weaker from the past research, but in this research, "The level of cognitive vulnerability is clearly influenced by that of roommate We found out from the subjects, "the researcher says. On the other hand, it can be said that if a roommate is a bright person you can be free from depression.
Studies also have nearly doubled the risk of becoming depressed in half a year compared to people who did not experience "vulnerability of cognition" in the first three months of college life It was discovered. According to research results, the impact was particularly strong when the participants were placed under high stress conditions. In previous studies, once you experienced puberty, it was thought that the level of "cognitive vulnerability" did not change very much afterwards, but with new experimental results people are under new circumstances, such as a big change in life The researchers say that the level of "cognitive vulnerability" will change when it comes to the time.

According to researchers, genetic, biology and environmental factors probably all play a role in the "cognitive vulnerability" level. In the future further studies are needed to investigate non-university grades, and to investigate whether the level of "cognitive vulnerability" changes over time. "Our findings are consistent with many other findings that stated that there was room for change that was thought to be unchangeable due to psychology and biological factors after adulthood "The researcher says.
