Overacting brain - orae sothappals!!

விபூதி எத்தனை வகைப்படும் தெரியுமா??
Sivaji, Kamal, Vikram, Vishal.. Appappo overaction pannuvaana. Have you ever observed your mind doing something like that? I mean overacting brain..something like overthinking..over(re)acting..overresponding..

Its very amazing to see how our brain remembers the acquired knowledge and applies it methodically while performing a new action. Most of the times, such application works positive and fetches us a name " Very sytematic..Creative.. applying "..But, sometimes it sodhappifies..

"Ippo ennan ra??" - I guess this is your reaction. Okay... you will understand from the way how my brain sodhappifies at times like these :

1. In one of the types of experiments that I do, I always have 2 sets of samples..after I get the samples processed, I wear gloves (a pair) and start the next step. Recently, I had to use 3 sets of samples.. After I got the samples processed, automatically I took 3 gloves and I realized it only after wearing the pair (and looked for another hand) heehee..

2. While reading about pradosham for aanmeegham blog, I read somewhere that the duration for pradosham was 2.5 hrs. But I was kindaa sure that it's 1.5 hrs..Immediately my mind, at a glance, reasoned out for the loss of one hour " Is this because of the day light savings..Did people calculate Lord Shiva's dance between nandhis horns (pradosham time) during day light saving hours??". Then, I realized how my mind overacted..

3. When I go to the dark room to develop a film for the experiment, automatically I switch off the light and used to stay silent (stop humming) and switch off the ipod even... My mind had extrapolated that both sound and light should not get there instead of just switching off light..

Okay okay.. instead of thinking and laughing at me, think about how generally our brains overact:)- and makkale..you see..I could list only the sodhappals and it is practically not possible to list all my creative..applying..all positive actions of my brain..you see:)-

Okay, share YOUR overactions and overthinkings here ! Lets have fun!

The dark room thing could be explained. Normally, when it is dark it is a bit difficult to move around even though you are familiar with the place/room. So, you need to be concentrate and careful that any sound will be a disturbance. Perhaps, that is the reason why you automatically switch off the ipod.

Have you observed this? After having any conversation with a dumb person who would have talked to you through sign language, your voice level will autmatically go down when you talk to a perfectly normal person. It happens subconciously.
