Research: Annoying People Make You Dumb

I’ve always said being around irritating people is a physically exhausting experience. But now it’s much more than that.

New research says that moron in the next cubicle is actually robbing you of brain cells.

According to scientists:

Whether you like someone or not can affect how your brain processes their actions.

 

Most of the time, watching someone else move causes a ‘mirroring’ effect — that is, the parts of our brains responsible for movement are activated by watching someone else in action.

 

But being around someone you don’t like can send this process awry. You might think the person is moving more slowly than they actually are, for example.

So the next time you encounter ‘you know who’ at the copier – back away – your mental health depends on it!
