    Only a small fraction of our brain (not always exactly 10%) is ever active at once, but it's not like there's just one small part of the brain that's active and the rest is always dormant: all of it gets activated sometimes, just never all at once. And that's a good thing, because when the entire brain activates all at once, that's what we call a seizure. Normal brain function lies in the pattern of activation and deactivation of different parts of the brain. The idea that there's some 90% of the brain sitting unused awaiting to be activated to unlock our superpowers is a common misunderstanding.

    Some people on this very site only use 10% of their brain, but that's their limitation im afraid

    It's a myth propagated by scientologists.

    Don't be a sucker. Don't fall for it. Move on.
