You knew that already, right? Mike Wehner:
A new study suggests that your brain is usually working a few steps ahead all on its own, and it makes your decisions long before you consciously think about them.
It’s science. Or math. Or maybe something else.
The path you’re about to choose when you make a decision can sometimes be pre-determined before you even actively consider your options. The researchers found that they could predict the outcome up to 11 seconds before the subject began to weigh their decision.
