Brain Smarter Than Person Using It
Research indicates our subconscious brain is excellent at making decisions based on data
Subjects stared at randomly moving dots and a set number were moving right or left. When asked if the dots were moving left or right, the longer subjects stared at the screen, the more confirmed their answers became. If dots moved to the right, a part of the brain that recognizes right-direction movement became activated and increased as time passed until the subjects gave a definitive answer ... meaning subjects were subconsciously gathering information until they finally felt sure of the answer.
