10 Tricks Our Brain Plays On Us

Here are 10 tricks our brains play on us.

If you’ve ever felt that your brain has betrayed you, you’re not alone. It seems that the organ is quite the prankster and sometimes, even a deceiver.

Here are 10 tricks our brains play on us.

Number 10. Phantom Cellphones. With new technologies come new mental processing abilities, and hearing your phone ring or feeling it vibrate when it’s doing no such thing is among them. It’s not typically harmful or indicative of a bigger problem, it’s just your brain mixing up the external clues it receives.

Number 9. Moon Illusions. Many have been duped into thinking that the evening’s rising moon is particularly large, when really it’s just the same, old regular size. It’s a common illusion caused by the way we perceive things on the horizon as opposed to those overhead.

Number 8. Change Blindness. Among the most prevalent examples of this is when an actor in a movie is switched out for a stunt double, and the audience doesn’t notice. The reason behind it is, in part, that our brains prefer stability. Another is that sometimes, our minds just get overloaded, and can’t process every little detail.

Number 7. False Memories. Recalling past moments can be difficult, and the ones retrieved can be unreliable. Any number of things can alter one’s perception of days gone by, including suggestion, recent events, and competition from other memories.

Number 6. Overlooking Typos. It’s pretty tough to serve as your own proofreader, as you brain will forever be focused on the greater meaning of the prose rather than the small technicalities. While it’s immersed in the high-level task of comprehension, it automatically adjust for – and ignores - whatever gets in its way, including misspellings, missing words, and transpositions.

Number 5. Apophenia. Humans have the truly spectacular ability to find meaning in even the most random assemblages of objects, experiences, and images. For some, it’s the force behind their creativity, and for others it’s the burden of mental illness. Those in the middle of the range are mostly prone to seeing images in clouds and faces on grilled cheese.

Number 4. Tasting with our eyes. Color has been found to have a large influence on how we experience food. Some say red foods are often perceived as being sweet, while green edibles are associated with the crispness of vegetables or the sourness of under-ripe fruit.

Number 3. Understanding jumbled words. When people read, much of the focus given to individual words is on the characters that begin and end them. If the middle is all messed up, it doesn’t really matter as the brain will perform an autocorrect of sorts, as its wired to gather the information it expects to find.

Number 2. Filling in sensory information. In cases where people are deprived of experiencing sensations, the mind will just start to make some up. They’re not always good substitutes, however, and often present as hallucinations, both auditory and visual.

Number 1. Feeling what others do. Most people can relate to others emotionally, but there are a few who can actually share what others experience physically. The condition is called mirror-touch synesthesia, and those affected by it can feel the touch they see being given to another.

Have you ever experienced any of these brain tricks?


Nothing is better than solving a nice set of brain teasers thats will force your brain work. Quite often our brain is tend to operate on autopilot throughout the day, so these tricky riddles will help you activate your brain to the max:

00:14 - A short and simple personality test that will reveal all the truth about you without lots of boring questions! You need just to pick the girl that appeals to you most and wait for the answer. The point is that we make this choice with our heart and subconscious, not with logic. That's why it allows psychologist to find out some common features of character that people posses. Well, I would definitely choose C😜
01:17 - Will you become the detective of the month for catching this sly smuggler or we let him slip away once again? You're here to capture one of the smartest criminals in our country, so don't let us down! Use 100% your logic and imagination, you should think as if you were that criminal. Hurry up, he's leaving right now. Any ideas? Check his luggage too, there can be something we've missed. Come on, we can't let him go! A tough detective riddle with answer to challenge your brain!
02:27 - Think twice before watching this video! Are you sure you wanna know it? Ok, at least I tried. When our partners want to keep something in secret, they take every possible precautionary measure, but the truth will out, sooner or later😈 And your brilliant logic and sharp mind will only speed the things up! I just want to remind you that trust is the core thing of any relationship, but you already know this, right? An intriguing set of puzzles with answers to test your attention and sense of humor 😜
04:04 - This heart-breaking story with a riddle can be solved only by those whose emotional intelligence levels are high enough to feel empathy. It's not only logic you should rely on; emotion is an important part of what we call being smart. And of course imagination! it can help us think outside the box and find effective and unpredictable solutions! A tricky riddle with answer to train your imagination!
05:10 - A hot personality quiz for the bravest ones only😜 Will you dare to know some unpleasant truth about youfself? If not, no one will blame you or even get to know about it😉 If you are ready for this, I would recommend you decide without overthinking the question and choose the girl that appeals to you most. It's your subconscious that should decide here!
06:02 - Let's see if you can pass the FBI test which only the smartest and most attentive candidates can crack! As a FBI agent, you would have to go off book and decide really quickly relying only on your eyes and common sense. That's why you're offered to train using this tough picture puzzle. Imagine that one of them is the criminal you're chasing and the other one is the kid's father, just a civilian. If you arrested the wrong one, the criminal would escape holding the kid hostage. What would you do?
07:14 - This is a mystery riddle that will challenge your logical and survival skills like nothing else before. It's a hard puzzle where you'll have to make your choice quickly and decide between three options that seem to be equally impossible. But if you're able to not give over to emotion and concentrate on the essence of each variant, you will surely choose the safe door and get to freedom. So what will your choice be?
08:22 - A tricky riddle with answer to test your attention and logical thinking in just 1 minute! The most important things to do when you're attacked: a) survive b) remember as much as possible. Let's see how good your memory is; can you identify the attacker among 5 men looking almost alike? If you can't, don't worry, you need some time to train your eyes catch even the smallest details. Try again!
09:53 - A tough personality test for the strongest and bravest ones. The rules are that you can't say 'I don't know' or 'I want both', you have to choose only one variant and stick to it. Are you strong enough to make this choice right now or you wanna take a break? A would you rather test to make you face your worst fears!

TELL me IN THE COMMENTS your answers to the question fin the Thumbnail (would you rather spend 5 minutes naked in your school or 1 hour on a street?)

Do you like puzzles? Even in the pre-internet era, optical illusions were very popular. You know, pictures with a full-fledged landscape, a portrait or a simple still life, but if you look at them from a certain angle, it miraculously turns into something different. For example, the branches of trees take the shape of faces, the waves of a raging ocean turn into silhouettes, and sometimes it happens that the beautiful girl on a portrait gets old and becomes a disheveled old lady with a huge nose right in front of your eyes

For the first time in history, researchers at MIT have successfully recorded a 3-D movie of an entire neural network moving throughout a living animal! This is a huge step forward in our understanding of how the brain works and will help scientists discover how our neural networks generate our behaviors. In the future, this technology might even be able to cure brain disorders!

How Your Eyes Trick Your Mind

Visual, or optical, illusions show us that our minds tend to make assumptions about the world - and what you think you see is often not the truth. Throughout history, curious minds have questioned why our eyes are so easily fooled by these simple drawings. Illusions, we have found, can reveal everything from how we process time and space to our experience of consciousness. Scroll down our interactive guide to find out why.

What Are Optical Illusions? - Definition & Types

In this lesson, we will explore the different types of optical illusions and discuss how they play tricks on our perception. Then you can test your knowledge with a fun quiz.

How Do Optical Illusions Work?

These are two identical, straight lines. Kind of boring, right? But what happens when you change what's going on around them? All of a sudden, the lines look like they've changed size in relation to each other; they could shrink and grow; they might change to different shades; they may stretch and compress; and they could bend, buckle, or even change directions. But even though it would seem like the lines themselves are changing, the only thing that's actually bending or buckling is your mind -- the truly mesmerizing part of optical illusions.

7 Ways To Hack Your Brain

The human brain is one of the most complex organs in the human body and it is capable of doing some pretty amazing things. Many people believe that they are resigned to the way their brain functions with no hope of “hacking” the brain and changing the way that it functions. On the contrary, the brain has the ability to adapt and change into something completely different. One of the simplest ways to hack the brain is to develop a new habit, which will take the brain about 2-3 weeks to adjust to. It can be difficult to accomplish this, but it truly is possible. Here are seven ways you can hack your brain.
You can actually trick your brain into boosting your immune system. Just as we can start drooling and salivating from looking at pictures of food, we can increase our immune system by looking at sick people. From observing sick people, the brain will believe that it is under attack or actually sick itself, and will increase the body’s production of antibodies.
Your brainwaves determine a lot on how your brain reacts to situations and feelings. Your brainwaves pretty much determine your personality and how your function each day. Sometimes if you want to change yourself, you have to start from the inside. And we mean DEEP inside. There have been innovations and inventions that can actually alter your brainwaves. Scientists have been experimenting with various techniques as a way to generate happy feelings, arousals, and LSD-like experiences. One of the most common way to alter brainwaves is to listen to different frequencies while wearing a pair of headphones.
Have you ever tried to remember the contents of a long list? Well, all you need to do is change your perspective and you’re well on your way to becoming a memorizing prodigy. Our brain better retains information if they’re associated with locations. If you associate the items of your list with geographical locations, then you have better chances at remembering the entire list.
Visual anomalies are fascinating and entertaining to look at. What makes these anomalies possible is that the brain is programmed to interpret multiple elements at a time. But when a visual anomaly comes about that can move or makes us see multiple things at once, it means that the picture is missing an element and leaving it up to the brain to fill in the blanks.
Believe it or not, if you ever find yourself in a lot of pain from an injury, grab a pair of binoculars. By inverting the binoculars and “shrinking” the injured site, you can actually trick your brain into reducing pain and swelling. Perhaps it’s the visual shrinking that sets it off, but it is certainly fascinating to know that pain reduction is possible with the human mind.
There are many more brain hacks where this comes from. If you adapt all of these techniques, we won’t be surprised if you became a superhero when it comes to the brain.
