Mind Trick?


Have you ever wondered if your mind is normal? Well, do this little mind exercise and find out —- Free will or synaptic wiring? You be the judge.

Check out the following exercise, guaranteed to raise an eyebrow. There’s no trick or surprise. Just follow these instructions, and answer the questions one at a time and as quickly as you can. Again, as quickly as you can but don’t advance until you’ve done each of them…really.

Now, scroll down (but not too fast, you might miss something)…

Now repeat saying the number 6 to yourself as fast as you can for 15 seconds. Then scroll down.

If not, you’re among the 2% of the population whose minds are different enough to think something else. 98% of people will answer with carrot when given this exercise.
