Scratching our Heads, Why? –by Daniel Holland

Why do we scratch our heads when we can't figure something out?

Are we simply buying time?

Signalling that we are clueless?

Or, do we think we'll shake our brains a bit,
and the information we are looking for will fall out?

  1. Now, that's a good question! I never thought of that...I think it's a sign that I need more time to think.

  2. I think it is our brain, waking up from its big sleep, all tingly and not sure what direction to go in! Scratching gives it the stimulation to find the answer and gives the rest of us time to recover our wits.
