(Telegraph) People with full bladders ‘make better decisions’, scientists discover
Anyone considering an expensive purchase might do well to drink a bottle of water first, scientists concluded after finding that people with full bladders make wiser decisions.
Researchers discovered the brain’s self-control mechanism provides restraint in all areas at once.
They found people with a full bladder were able to better control and “hold off” making important, or expensive, decisions, leading to better judgement.
Psychologists from the University of Twente in the Netherlands linked bladder control to the same part of the brain that activates feelings of desire and reward.
