3 – Earworms

3 earworms



An EARWORM?! Don’t worry, it’s not what you think. Have you ever gotten a song verse stuck in your head on repeat? You sing it over and over for several days. Well, that’s what you call an earworm. You begin singing the verse to this song but you don’t know the rest, and since your mind doesn’t like unfinished business,it puts that same verse on repeat. Your mind keeps coming back to that unfinished thought over and over expecting to complete it.

Scientists say that the only way to break the cycle is by focusing on a cognitive task, such as reading. Sometimes, however, the spell resurfaces.
