Follow these instructions, and answer the questions one at a time and as quickly as you can! Again, as quickly as you can but don't advance until you've done each of them.

Now repeat saying the number 6 to yourself as fast as you can for 15 seconds. Then scroll down.
QUICK!!! THINK OF A VEGETABLE! !
Then arrow down.
Again arrow down.
You're thinking of a carrot, right?
If not, you're among the 2% of the population whose minds are different enough to think of something else. 98% of people will answer with carrot when given this exercise. Freaky, huh?
I was counting in Polish (szesc, szesc, szesc), but I still thought in English "carrot". But as everybody knows I like carrots and I even felt like eating one just a moment ago. What were you thinking about?
The only other explanation that comes to my mind is that it has to do something with brain conditioning during your childhood - then you were adding small numbers and you were eating mostly carrot...
