Your Brain Has to Work Much Harder to Argue than to Agree

Your brain has to work a lot harder to argue with someone than to agree with someone, according to a new study.  In fact, the researchers say that when you agree with someone, your brains basically sync up like a, quote, “musical duet” and you feel calmer. 

 

Do you feel EXHAUSTED after you argue or debate with someone?  It’s because you’re really putting your brain through a workout.

A new study out of Yale University found that it takes more, quote, “brain real estate” to argue with someone than to agree with them.

That makes sense, of course . . . when you’re arguing, you constantly have to think of brilliant things to try to make your point.

When you’re agreeing with someone, your brain can just relax on a mental “lounge chair” and drink a mental frozen daquiri.

In fact, the researchers say that when you agree with someone, your brains basically sync up like a, quote, “musical duet” and you feel calmer.

So, this has many implications.  One is:  You can decide WHEN you are up to an argument, and when you are not, based on how you feel, over all.  You can schedule times to talk about things.

This may help many of us decide when an argument is worthwhile, or not; because we can decide if we want to put that much mental energy into an argument.  It would depend, perhaps, on whether the subject is dear to us, or not so much.
