    How Smart is Your Right Foot?

    How Smart is Your Right Foot? 8th Nov 18 at 3:56 PM
    This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over
    again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but you can't.


    1. Without anyone watching you (they will think you are
    barmy) and while sitting where you are at your desk in front of
    your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make Clockwise
    Circles.

    2.. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your
    right hand. Your foot will change direction.

    And there's nothing you can do about it!


    Or is there?

    I can do both at the same time. Same with tapping head and rubbing tummy.

    Yet can't swim or ride a bike.

    I bet if someone just asked you to do it, without explaining why, you could do it though. The power of suggestion

    No, if I make clockwise circles, I can't do it. Can if I make anti-clock for some reason.

    I do wonder who comes up with these things. "Oh, I was just sitting there twirling my foot and drawing numbers in the air (as you do)..."

    This is even weirder. I tried it with my left foot and it didn't change direction. I then tried both feet at once and chaos ensued



    I'm sure some high powered neurologist could explain it
