We Love To Daydream
According to a study from University of California, we spend 30% of our time daydreaming, which increases to 70% when we’re doing nothing while on a plane. People seem to distress when their minds wander.
We Make Subconscious Choices
60 to 80 percent of our decisions are made without consciously thinking. In fact, our subconscious takes over simple decisions like turning lights off and locking doors in order to prevent your conscious brain from burning up.
We can’t Multi-Task
We can only do one cognitive thing at a time. Try talking and reading and you’ll end up doing neither very well. But it’s possible to multitask if the second activity involves a physical act like talking while walking.
