Have you ever wondered why people love solving puzzles? It’s actually based on how our bodies and brains are designed. As humans, we have an innate quality for finding patterns and for finding meaning in random things. We also love trying to come up with innovative solutions. We’ve always found a way to solve a problem and improve on how we do things. In short, we like altering our environment to create a better way of doing stuff. When we achieve something, even completing a puzzle or solving a problem, our brain releases feel-good chemicals like oxytocin, which rewards us for a job well done.
When we solve puzzles, our subconscious mind praises us, even if we don’t realize it. Because of this, we get a feeling of immense satisfaction and that makes us want to do the hard thing again and again. In the image below, there is one letter than doesn’t belong. Can you figure out which one it is. Here’s a hint: it’s not as obvious as you may think. Good luck!
