The mind is a funny thing

So as I was walking back into the office I needed to go where the arrow is pointing.  As you can see from the photo it is shorter for me to walk around the circle by going to the left, but I automatically started walking to the right.  After 2 steps I stopped and thought about why I started walking the longer route.  In my mind the open circle was just like a round about thingy so in order to stay with the flow of traffic I was going to walk to the right.

It is really interesting all the little choices that our brian makes “in the background” to help make our life a little easier.  Its really hard to pick out the decisions that are made for us until its wrong 🙂
