6/18 (Tue.) Creativity Workshop No. 3: 10 Biggest Myths in the World—Busted!😱 (Host: Kat)

文章 Kat C »


Dear all,

We're back for another adventure into the "thinking" world! This time trying to challenge our stubborn brain against our long-held "beliefs":

🤔 The Great Wall of China is the only man-made structure seen from the moon?

🤔 Goldfish have a three-second memory?

🤔 Napoleon was short, thus suffering from a short-man complex?

🤔 Shaving your hair makes it grow back thicker and faster?

🤔 We should drink eight glasses of water a day?

🤔 Our tongues have different "taste zones?"

🤔 Left-brained people are logical, right-brained people are creative?

🤔 Don't wake up sleepwalkers?

We have heard them all, and most of us would answer "yes" and recite these long-held "facts" without thinking twice.

Except they're all wrong. Myths busted and debunked.

What are some of the biggest myths in the world that have been around seemingly forever, and do we know they have been proven false? And just where did we get them from, why are we so attracted to them, and why do we hold on to them?

Come and “play” our way out of the copy-and-paste mentality, and see if we can "change" our minds to real facts.


📌 We'll explore some of the ideas from the links below.
