    Default Does it ever hurt your head to think?

    what part specifically?

    does it ever hurt your head to think? especially when you are involved in a somewhat deep philosophical/something-that-needs-lots-of-thought debate...maybe even on this board?

    i found it, at times, hurts the front-left of my head...

    thats supposed to be the temporal lobe

    The executive functions of the frontal lobes involve the ability to recognize future consequences resulting from current actions, to choose between good and bad actions (or better and best), override and suppress unacceptable social responses, and determine similarities and differences between things or events. Therefore, it is involved in higher mental functions.

    The frontal lobes also play an important part in retaining longer term memories which are not task-based. These are often memories associated with emotions derived from input from the brain's limbic system. The frontal lobe modifies those emotions to generally fit socially acceptable norms.
    if this turns into hurting different part, im gonna make this into a poll

    Forehead, just above the eyes and around the temples. I don't get head aches that often, I guess I'm not thinking that hard

    Mine doesn't. Maybe this is why I get so few headaches.

    Since I'm an INTP, I think if it hurt my head to think, I'd either pass out or my head would explode.

    No but I often get struck with that look of shock/despair if my train of thought runs too far into unpleasant realization territory.

    Occacionally but only if its REALLY deep and REALLY wide. So if Ne tries to go mental as Ti is doing its buisness sort of.

    "Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!

    No, it doesn't hurt my head to think. In fact i feel relaxed when i'm thinking.

    The brain doesn't feel pain.....

    ^^^ yeah, same here for me. Sometimes the eyes strain reading or comp-work, but there is no joy like when the fox hounds are hot on the trail of learning something new.
    Something that connects seemingly unrelated dots.

    It only hurts if I have to think hard about something that I really, really don't want to think about at the moment.

    I don't normally get headaches or anything. When I'm thinking, I tend to "space out" (for those of you who don't know what this means, it is when your eyes concentrate on something as your mind is working, waving your hand in front of a person who is spacing out will surely snap them out of this).

    Anyways, when I space out, my eyes are very strained. I tend to think quite a lot, therefore space out frequently and thus my eyes hurt constantly.
