Activity: Harder than it looks…..
Remember I mentioned in the audio file, if I ask you “what is your name?”, “what type of car do you have?”….
you cannot help but have the answers pop into your head. That’s because the 2nd main function of the RAS is to SEARCH (for answers to questions).
If you try to override this function, you will discover it is very difficult because you are trying to go against one of your RAS’ natural inbuilt mechanisms.
Give it a try…. find someone to do this activity with. The rules are:
1. You are only allowed to speak to each other using questions
2. You must not answer the question, but reply using another question
See how long the conversation goes for……
The next video shows a funny look at people trying to do the above activity…… These guys have had lots of practice, but as you can see, eventually their brain wins, and they can’t help but answer the question…. ENJOY! Hope it gives you a giggle…..
