    We only uses 10% of our brain is it true?

    some people say, we only uses 10% of our brain power but science says that we uses 100%. is 10% just a myth?

    I believe it to be true, but then again, it's just a scientific theory and we have no concrete evidence about the exact % that goes unused.
    But one thing's for sure, our brain is capable of much more than we use it for - just think of what our subconscious mind does every day, it dreams and enters a different world altogether, where we experience virtual reality till we wake up. It's a mystery yet to be unraveled.
    Memory is another wonderful thing - how our brain is able to retrieve necessary information from the depths of its detailed database whenever we need it is absolutely fascinating.

    You use 100% of your brain. You just use different parts of it at different times. That's why you can't do math while writing an essay, file a tax return while rounding third, or discuss politics while having an intimate moment in bed with your main squeeze. Obviously these are impossible for other reasons, but seriously, the human brain is HUGE, and we use ALL of it. Do you think you'd be able to focus on reading this if every synapse in your head was firing like it was the Fourth of July? Bump your in the moment brain usage up from 10 to 15% and you've got full blown ADD.

      This is also what I've heard. It ruins a bunch of sci fi movies, but it makes a lot more sense.
