i was sent this yesterday and I want to challenge you to create some new neural pathways. It is in very big letters and I am too lazy to retype it :P
You have to try this please, it takes 2 seconds. I could not believe this!!! It is from an orthopedic surgeon...
This will boggle your mind and you will keep you trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but, you can't. It's pre-programmed in your brain!
1. Without anyone watching you (they will think you are GOOFY...) and while sitting at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.
2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction.
I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it!
Well I would totally disagree with the "nothing you can do about it" because I had retrained my brain within 30 seconds on both sides to not switch directions. Yes it's hard, yes you have to over-ride impulses that scream at you but I highly recommend playing with this.
It will make you smarter, your brain will thank you, and you won't get icky old age pathologies if you find silly things like this to create new brain patterns once in awhile.
This is a great party trick by the way :D Thanks Lisa for passing this forward!
