10 Amazing Facts About The Human Brain You May Never Find In Any Textbook

The human brain is the definition of complexity, amazement and wonder. We never learn enough about it. In fact, the more we learn, the more there is to discover; the more we dig into it, the deeper it gets. It houses an unending cycle of surprises!

Consider this: science says that when you are tired, you are more creative…. Uh, what? Didn’t tiredness make you feel exhausted? Well, it’s a fact and it’s just one of the facts. Just wait until you discover the 10 interesting facts about the human psyche – you will be left in bewilderment and wonder.

1. More intelligent the people, lesser their friends

Science has proven that people with higher IQ tend to have lesser friends. Why? Well, since these people already have a lot on their minds, more serious issues that require their immediate attention, they don’t have time for meaningless acquaintances. They feel like communicating is merely a waste of time. However, other studies have shown evidence that surrounding yourself with friends nurtures your mental health along with positively influencing your psychological state. It is why even the most intelligent of people need to get their heads away from the book sometimes.

2. When you are depressed, color perception changes

Have you ever heard someone suffering from depression say, “life has lost its colors”? Well, it isn’t metaphoric! Depression actually causes a change in color perception. Your retina becomes less sensitive to contrasting colors, leading you to poorly differentiate between them. It might happen the other way around as well – the more you surround yourself with dull colors, the more likely you are to feel sad and melancholy.

3. Bragging about your plans won’t really help them

We tend to talk about everything we plan to do. But, we shouldn’t. Whenever you make the decision to start something new, don’t tell anyone. It is because your brain will perceive the task as done and consequently, there will be no motivation to pursue it. It may sound mythical, but science has proved it using serious researches.
