I am going to try to influence your thoughts using a task that will exhaust your left brain (verbal and computational areas).
This will then allow your spontaneous right brain thinking to come under my control.
So first, let's exhaust your left brain.
- Think of a VERY LARGE NUMBER (e.g. 2,134,875) and then write this down this number in WORDS.
"TWO MILLION, ONE HUNDRED
AND THIRTY-FOUR THOUSAND,
EIGHT HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE"
- Now count how many letters are in the words you have written (e.g., 67) and then write down this new number in words (e.g., SIXTY SEVEN).
- Next, count how many letters are in the new words and write down that number in WORDS.
- Keep repeating this procedure until you reach a point where you start getting the same answer every time.
- Whatever number you have finished up with, find the letter at this position in the alphabet (1=A, 2=B, etc.).
- Now, quickly, think of an ANIMAL that begins with this letter
