The text line heated up today with Dads who don't like surprises. There were a couple of exceptions, but mostly Dads say no thanks to surprises. Why? Mainly they worry what it's costing them.
But according to neuroscientist Gregory Berns, even if you don't think you like surprises your brain does. "We find that so-called pleasure centers in the brain do not react equally to any pleasurable substance, but instead react more strongly when the pleasures are unexpected. This means that the brain finds unexpected pleasures more rewarding than expected ones, and it may have little to do with what people say they like."
Not everyone hates surprises. Some people, including this hilarious Kristen Wiig character, love them!
