Our thinking is imperfect, and even the brain, the most precise organ in our body, is sometimes deceived by itself. The following 3 traps caught almost every one of us!
Imagine: typing on a computer, and at this time talking on the phone. And when the interlocutor asks about something: “did you take the coat?”, Then instead of answering, accidentally type “took”. Often works and vice versa. Here is a trap that turns two mental streams into one ?
Let's explain why this happens. During a conversation with someone, the words of your interlocutor affect consciousness, rebuilding it, forcing the brain to work a little differently.
The brain itself is automatically hooked to the share of the information that the interlocutor gave. And when you have to give the right answer, it goes "wrong." And all because the brain has not had time to adjust.
It is human nature to pay attention to things that are not worth it at all, to make them important, although they are not such for him personally. And this is again a trap into which a person is driven by his own brain.
One of the most common types of this effect - a person finds out about something that he did not know before. And now this thing comes across to him everywhere. With each of us, this happened more than once.
It happens as follows: people hear about the same problem every day, so they start giving it a sense of importance because everyone talks about it.
As the brain, having learned new information, continues to grab it for the first time where it can. And it only clogs the head with unnecessary thoughts, facts, things.
Recreation of associations in our head, when looking for an answer to a particular question, should be considered a thing useful, as it facilitates the search process, reduces the waste of time and energy. However, everything happens on the contrary, it only aggravates the situation.
For example, over the past 3 days, you have poured a car out of a puddle, a purse has been stolen from you, a marriage is bursting at the seams and anything else like that. How then will you answer the question “Do you like your life?”
Most likely negative. But only because of a few bad events, in general, your life is very good.
In theory, in the process of thinking, we should look at the picture as a whole and give a logical opinion. But it is difficult: it is much easier to carry out an associative series of events in recent years, as a result, and the answer is formed, which is often not always objective.
