Well many of you got the answer right to yesterdays riddle. When you thought about it UND popped up.
So what caused many of you to get the right answer? It actually has to do with how your brain operates.
Your brain can retrieve information easier when it looks at something and says, “no that is the wrong answer” then when it has to stare at a blank space and fill it in. Because yesterday’s riddle was partially filled in I bet many of you put pen to paper to fill in the letters before and after. Then all your brain had to do was look at what you put in and say “no that is wrong, the correct answer is…”
When you are working on a particular problem use your brain as an asset by just writing in an answer even if you know it is way off base. Your brain will quickly retrieve the right answer when it rejects the answer you put in. But if you don’t put anything on paper, your brain will literally “blank” out on you.
Here is your riddle for tomorrow:
I am a path situated between high natural masses. Remove my first letter and you have a path situated between man-made masses. What am I?
