Things That I Hate

People Who Say You Only Use 10% of Your Brain

I hate it when people say you only use ten percent of your brain. Like, if you’re in maths class, and you tell your teacher, “Sir/Miss? I can’t solve this problem” or “I’m stuck on this question” or “I don’t know what to do from here.” The teacher might then respond, “Well, that’s because you’re only using ten percent of your brain. Try using more!”

Uh huh. And what body function would you like me to shut down in order to achieve this? Breathing, or making my heart beat? Or maybe my sense of sight? Perhaps the best option would be to turn off my sense of hearing, so that I wouldn’t have to listen to these absolute idiots effectively telling me, “It’s okay, man, I have no clue how the human brain functions!”
