As we stand on the precipice of a new year, it's a time-honored tradition to reflect on the past 12 months. For PsychicWorld, that means revisiting the predictions we made for 2022 and evaluating how we fared. Were our crystal balls clear, or were we just gazing into a murky puddle? Let's dive in!
A global economic resurgence, albeit with pockets of instability, and a strong rebound for developing economies. Reality: The global economy did witness a bounce-back in many areas, and developing economies showed resilience. While there were certain regions that faced challenges, overall, our prediction was fairly spot on.
The 'metaverse' becoming a mainstream concept with major players like Facebook and Microsoft pushing for a more integrated virtual space. Reality: With Facebook rebranding to 'Meta' and the rising popularity of virtual realms, the metaverse indeed took giant leaps into the public consciousness.
While the private sector would continue its endeavors, we had expected a significant state-sponsored lunar or Mars mission to capture headlines. Reality: Private players dominated space news. Although there were announcements from various nations about their space missions, the expected headline-grabbing event didn't materialize.
Major policies and initiatives to combat climate change, particularly from leading economies. Reality: The urgency of climate change action was palpable in international forums. Several nations stepped up their efforts, though there remains much work to be done.
A transition from pandemic response to a more normalized state of living with the virus, alongside significant advancements in other areas of medical research. Reality: COVID-19 certainly did evolve, with many nations adapting to a new normal. There were also remarkable breakthroughs in other fields of medicine.
A boom in streaming services, with a decline in traditional cinema attendance. Reality: Streaming continued to grow, but there was a surprising resurgence in cinema attendance in certain areas, perhaps driven by a desire for communal experiences after the isolations of the pandemic.
Overall retrospect, our predictions for 2022 achieved a 75% accuracy rate:
Overall Score: 45/60
Final Rating: 7.5/10
While we're pleased with this result, it serves as a reminder that the future remains unpredictable, and humility is essential when gazing into the crystal ball. We'll continue to analyze, predict, and be excited about the future, learning from our misses and celebrating our hits.
