Do you feel EXHAUSTED after you argue or debate with someone? It’s because you’re really putting your brain through a workout.
A new study out of Yale University found that it takes more, quote, “brain real estate” to argue with someone than to agree with them.
That makes sense, of course . . . when you’re arguing, you constantly have to think of brilliant things to try to make your point. When you’re agreeing with someone, your brain can just relax on a lounge chair and drink a frozen daquiri.
In fact, the researchers say that when you agree with someone, your brains basically sync up like a, quote, “musical duet” and you feel calmer.
