The human brain is a complex mechanism responsible for making us do some pretty incredible things. It consists of billions of neurons connected through synapses that work at top-notch speed.
There are two parts to the brain; left and right. The left brain controls your logical thinking and the right brain is involved in your artistic abilities.
When was the last time you gave your brain a quick workout?
Sometimes, your brain will play tricks on you. It’ll make you see things that are visually not there. It will also make you not see things that are right there in front of your eyes.
How many times have you missed or added extra words when you’re writing and only noticed it when someone else pointed it out? You probably assumed it was because you were careless. But nope, it’s just your brain messing with you.
See the number sequence below? Seems very normal, except it’s not.
At first glance, you might notice absolutely nothing wrong with it. Just a sequence of numbers starting in order at 1 and ending at 53.
Now let’s take a look at it again. This time, you need to pay full attention and be super fast. There’s something unusual about the image and you only get 10 seconds to figure it out.
Ready, set, go! 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and times up!
Found the missing numbers? If you did, congrats! You have a super brain.
See how your brain manipulated you the first time you looked at the riddle? Your brain would have processed this same number sequence for hundreds and thousands of times. So, every time you look at it, it creates a shortcut to an already existing image in your head. That’s why you couldn’t detect any errors initially.
Hope you had fun with that one. Share with your friends and make them test their super brains too.
