However, there is a new technology called Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) that can reveal where people think from.
This is where things got interesting…
During a recent study, people were placed in fMRI machines with the simple task of "Don't think about yourself."
If they do, a red light will go on.
As expected, it didn’t take long before people began to think about their problems and compare themselves to others causing the flashing red light.
This continued for several days, but after 3 weeks they gradually stopped thinking about themselves.
They learned to focus on someone else or creative ideas instead of themselves.
And amazingly, the red light stayed off during the entire session!
