While few would advocate taking drugs, and while there are obvious downsides, not all side effects are considered negative. Studies at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine recently released the results to a study that revealed how taking magic mushrooms, or the chemical psilocybin that makes you hallucinate, can permanently alter a person’s personality. The results were almost always the same, by making them more open with their feelings, being focused more on creativity, becoming more curious, and better appreciating artistic things!

The head of the study said that the open personality effect is still there 12 months after ingesting the mushrooms, yet strangely the other four main personality traits, extroversion, neuroticism, agreeableness, and conscientiousness had not been altered!
