To celebrate this quite-challenging Thanksgiving, here are five fun brain teasers and games that readers have enjoyed the most this year so far. It is always good to learn more about (and appreciate) that most precious resource we all (yes, all) have up there!
#1. First of all, these days it’s always important to test your stress level
#2. You say you know the colors? Try the Stroop Test
#3. Check out this classic attention experiment
#4. What do you know about mental self-rotation?
#5. Last but not least, here are ten classic illusions to tease your mind.
Thank you in advance for trying them, enjoying them, and sharing them 🙂
Look around you, wherever you are, and find three green things that may fit in your pockets, and three red objects that are clearly too big to fit.
OK, now you have six objects.
Go ahead and say their names in alphabetical order.
Now name them in reverse alphabetical order.
Now count the total number of syllables in those six words.
Not easy, right?
All these mental operations engage your working memory — think of working memory as your temporary mental workspace where you can hold and integrate several units of information at once.
Feel free to practice in different locations … you can take these brain teasers with you, anywhere you go 🙂
This surprising illusion by mathematician and artist Kokichi Sugihara, named the 2016 Illusion of the Year, highlights the critical importance of perspective diversity and open conversation.
