The Foot Wants What the Foot Wants

This was just sent to me , so I’m passing it on.  This little “exercise” comes (apparently) from an orthopedic surgeon.    The claim was that it would “boggle my mind” and it will keep me trying over and over to see if I can outsmart my foot, but apparently I can’t.  It’s pre-programmed in my brain.

So with a hefty dose of skepticism and making sure no one was watching (apparently this only takes 2 seconds to try), I gave it a whirl.  And, dagnammit, if it ain’t so!  Okay, so now it’s your turn.

How Smart Is Your Right Foot?

  1. Without anyone watching you (they will think that you are goofy), and while sitting at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off of the floor and make clockwise circles.
  2. Now, while doing this (don’t stop), draw the number “6” in the air with your right hand.

Your foot will change direction.

Well?  Did it happen to you, too?
