For many years researchers and scientists have been conducting various studies on the subject of how certain people and situations affect our brain’s activity. And nowadays they’ve given us information about yet another curious finding on the subject – how exactly do annoying people affect our brain’s activity.
Researchers have found that our brain works slower when there’s a particularly annoying person in our presence. Those who irritate us have a strange way of affecting the mirroring effect in our brains – perceiving the movement of someone else. When irritating people are in our surroundings, our brain tends to slow down and we see them in slower motion – talking, breathing, moving. We think they’re moving slower than they actually are. Scientists haven’t found the exact reason for this occurring, but it’s clear that annoying company makes our brains slower, at least when it comes to processing gestures and other kinds of movement.
The study shows that this occurring takes place only when the annoying people are present. And it’s one good reason to avoid people who irritate us – after all, nobody wants their brain to function slowly.
