Myth About Humans

Not only have I been told for the majority of my life that we only use 10% of our brain, it is actually an extremely popular myth! Since this widespread, extremely incorrect information was even mentioned in our psychology textbook, I thought it was a perfect myth about humans to comic on!

    Ye, that’s true. I heard the same myth so many times, and still, someone thinks that our brain works like that.

  2. Isn’t there a movie about this? I thought this was true until my high school science teacher explained the areas of the brain.

    • Maybe you’re thinking of the film “Lucy”? Where it hypothetically shows what would happen if humans reached the full 100% capacity of their brain’s ability (if you haven’t seen it it’s SO good lol).

  3. I completely agree! I remember always believing this to be true, up until about a week ago to be completely honest!

    • I thought this was true for so long until I learned about Alzheimer’s disease and how it makes the brain shrink from parts of it dying and not being USED. So I thought… well we MUST use all of our brain if it’s all still there LOL

  4. This is an iconic one! It was even told as a motivation for me to study harder.
