Brain & body

Postby TJrandom » Mon Sep 01, 2014 11:05 pm

Try this….. Tell a person that you want to give them a simple test…

Ask them (in rapid succession) what is 1+2; 2+1; 2+2; 3+1; 1+3; 4+4. (This clears the mind.) Then quickly ask them to name a vegetable. (People will invariably name the same vegetable.) Repeat this with another person who was out of hearing of the prior persons `test` to confirm that they named the same (or possibly a different vegetable).

I have done this in three cultures and two languages, always obtaining the same vegetable result.

Did you know….

That unless a person is exercising, or otherwise requiring a larger than normal amount of air/oxygen, that people only use one nostril at a time to breathe? That nostril is used for a while, and then it closes off while the other nostril opens up and takes over.

You can test this by blocking one nostril at a time and sensing the slight breathing difficulty difference between the nostrils, and repeating this `mini-test` at 10 to 20 minute intervals. I believe that the longest time one nostril is used is about two hours.

There's one where one asks people to quickly name a color and a tool.

Most likely result:

Do you wanna know now?

Or tell us what you've got?

Sounds like nonsense to me. For starters, many people have a "preferred nostril" which has a better airway than the other. When that preferred side is blocked, breathing through the other can become difficult.

On the other hand, nostrils do become congested at night. The side that gets congested usually depends on which side the person is sleeping. Rolling to the other side can unblock the blocked nostril, but then the other nostril becomes blocked.

I have watched a proof video - where sitting person had very small circular fans mounted in front of their nose. Only one spun at a time from the breath exhaust, and then they switched without the person doing anything. I am sure there are exceptions, but as a general rule...

Okay, I actually happen to have two people handy, I'll go give it a try.

Their responses: Lettuce and onion.

They are supposed to give the name of the first vegetable they learned the name of as a child… in preschool, on flash cards, and admonished by their mothers to eat. Now of course, if one were a rabbit they might say lettuce, but never onion. Baby food… lettuce, I don`t think so, and Onion? Impossible!

Assuming that you are serious, and gave the test as instructed, and with the participants separated... then you may have the only people in the western world (and some Asian cultures too), who are different from everyone else.

I asked Mother what the first vegetable was that any of us ate, and she said "peas". Is the answer supposed to be "peas"?

I also asked Pops, but he said "pickled herring", which just means I shouldn't have asked him anything about child rearing.

While interesting - not the vegetable that pops to mind in an instant, ifin yer not a turtle or something. Both my mom and Pops got it `right`, and so did a brother, two sisters, many co-workers, dive trip chance encounters, etc. I normally write down the name of the veggie before I ask the question, and have never before (this forum of malcontents :D ) received any other answer.

My brother-in-law said "cabbage", and my sister said "carrot". My nephew said "banana", but his opinion has never really mattered that much to me. :heh:

That was a fun view on interpreting body language.

I certainly agree body language is real. A good actor uses it to convey a whole range of emotions. But then again an actor in a "starting sprint position" is also conveying information. He's an actor. It's what he does.

I think most people pick up their body language from movies and television. I think this is very different from innate humans responses like smiling, bowing and so on. I believe these adopted mannerisms are called "tells". Since "tells" are absorbed from particular period of time in media and from different countries, having a "tell" can give away quite a lot of information to a keen watcher.

Back in the 80s, accountants I worked with, were all reading books on "pop psychology". If I crossed my arms during a meeting, someone would say "Why are you being so defensive?" It drove me nutty. That's why I preferred exchanging "clear business letters" to endless meetings where everyone bogged down on what the other people looked like.

Interesting, but what about the finger length stuff? I just checked with my wife. My ring finger is quite a bit longer than my pointer finger, while hers are about the same length.

And I'm not trying to be offensive. Or defensive, or onthefencive.

I don't know anything about the finger length stuff. That's probably a good thing. My "wingspan" ( finger tip to finger tip) is greater than my height. I asked my father if it meant anything. He said "not unless your knuckles scrape when you are walking". .....thank's dad......

A year or so ago a friend of mine was laid off. The reasons they used were that he crossed his arms during meetings so he was obviously not paying attention and he wore headphones at his desk to listen to music so he was obviously not working.

I think so, seeds inside = fruit.

Many people believe the tomato is a veggie, too, but it was declared a vegetable in the US for taxation purposes, IIRC. I think the rest of the world still considers it technically a fruit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cucumber wrote:Description

The cucumber is a creeping vine that roots in the ground and grows up trellises or other supporting frames, wrapping around supports with thin, spiraling tendrils. The plant has large leaves that form a canopy over the fruit. The fruit of the cucumber is roughly cylindrical, elongated with tapered ends, and may be as large as 60 centimeters (24 in) long and 10 centimeters (3.9 in) in diameter. Having an enclosed seed and developing from a flower, botanically speaking, cucumbers are classified as accessory fruits. Much like tomatoes and squash they are often also perceived, prepared and eaten as vegetables...

According to popular mythology, men tend to be more obsessed by things such as cars and obscure facts. You find men in pubs discussing the top speed of a car they are never going to drive, let alone own. They cling to the TV remote control. They like spending time in sheds.

Uh, what?? :|

There are several women on my street who spend a lot of time in their sheds, because they have really nice gardens and they spend a lot of time working on them. I don't know of any men who spend time in sheds, whether they're into gardening or not. Now, garages! There's another thing! Men all up and down my street spend lots of time in their garages. That's where they store all their stuff, like cars and snowmobiles and lawn mowers and golf clubs.

So maybe the shed habit is a cultural thing.
