Humanizing Example: Brainteaser

A psychologist on how our brains don’t always work the way we think they do…

“Without stopping to think, add these numbers in your head: Start with 1000. Add 40. Now add 1000. Add 30. Now add another 1000. Add 20. Now add another 1000. Add 10. What’s the total?”

[Answer: Did you get 5000? The correct answer is 4100!]
