The human brain produces as many as 12,000 to 50,000 thoughts per day. That in and of itself is incredible! But still, we may not know what else our mind is capable of. Let’s check out some more interesting psychological facts — you might even recognize yourself in some of these.
We at Amazing Things On Earth found some unusual information that’s hiding in our minds.
1. Being forgetful is a sign of high intelligence.
A good memory seems to be one of our strongest and most positive features. But scientists have claimed that forgetting is just as important as remembering. A bad memory is actually a mechanism for making space for relevant information and keeps the brain from wasting space and energy.
2. Rejection feels like physical pain.
Neuroscience found out that rejection literally hurts like physical pain. The reaction for emotional pain and physical pain are very similar, and a natural chemical (painkiller mu-opioid) is released during both events.
