Your Powerful Brain

Updated on August 19, 2011

How much of your brain can you use?

I always tend to think that I've been using my brain beyond the 10% mark. I was googling around online to check out what was the maximum capacity of brain usage in a human. I got to tell you that it's no easy job. There are hundreds of doctors and scientist that have many different explanations so I ultimately came up with my own conclusion.

Truth is that scientist don't fully understand how the brain works. I once read that we were only able to use 10% of our brain, but that's not true. My I-pod holds 10 GB of songs and I know every single word to every song, so I have 10 GB of songs in my head also. I know that if I add a nother GBs of songs to remmeber, that surely I will. They tell you that " You can only use a certain amount of your brain " but I can prove that wrong. The memory part of your brain is limitless. You can out source your I-Pod and get instant GB upgrades just by learning. I figured that the more you learn, the more your memory part of your brain grows. Did you know that Einstein's inferior parietal lobe was 15 percent wider than normal? Was this because of knowledge? Well let's put it like this, some of the craziest people in history, (including murderers) had a parietal lobe that was larger than normal as well. I tend to think that the smarter you become, the crazier you can be. So I leave you with this, learn but keep it broad. Expand your mind and know that there is no limit to your brain and it's access. Expand your horizons and learn about things you don't necessarily need to know. Keep your brain upgraded and remember that " You never forget, you just don't remember.

      ....well it's obvious by looking around at what you are doing here at your hubspace that 'your brain' is working way way way beyond 10% - and is a cerebral force of nature - thank you for too for your endorsement and so nice to meet here with you ....

      It is a myth that we using only 10% of our brain. I and most people use 100% of the brain. Just like with all the muscles in our body, we do not use all the muscle all at the same time. Similarly, we do not use the whole brain all at the same time. But throughout the various activities that we perform in a whole day, I'm pretty sure the entire brain had been used at some point or another during that day.

      Ive read somewhere that an average persons brain storage capacity is 3 storays, packed full of books that cover the state of texas.

      just imagine... an average person only uses 4% of their brain...

      If one uses 10%, what can we achieve then...

      I did learn something and that is important. A person can learn as long as his brain is active. Thanks.
