Why do you repeat the same mistake even if you know it is not good?
Actually, it seems that there is neat neuro‐scientific evidence.
It is said that it is a phenomenon that occurs because the impulsive and rational aspects of our brain are caused by influencing each other.
When the part responsible for deliberate thinking in the brain is occupied, it becomes easy to lose the temptation.
So, with something full of heads, there is no cognitive margin to resist temptation and it is easy to yield to temptation.
It seems that the phenomenon that it is repeated in our brain.
For example, with people who have continued to repeat difficult sequences, people who are just walking tend to eat chocolate cake from the former rather than fruit.
In addition, the phenomenon that the power to resist this temptation wears out repeatedly is named “self-exhaustion” by Roy Bau Meister.
This applies not only to food but to all tasks that require self restraint.
In the familiar example, we restrain the urge to return, and on the day when we overtime late until late, alternative pleasure urges such as eating sweet things in the middle of the night are caused.
A famous mathematician who was always facing mathematical expressions while eating sweets, even if a male researcher of a friend told him to eat too much, even a woman mathematician refuted that “If I stop eating, I can not do mathematics” It seems there was.
It might be that we had to remove the limiter of appetite and pleasure, eating the extremely sweet things, as mathematics that would require a strong self-control, as long as we seriously face it.
Perhaps people who need strong self restraint every day, I think that those who are able to do big work somewhat are good at pampering themselves and trying to lose a little immediate temptation.
I want to take the first step towards a deceiver by using my reward well.
