If you frequently get engrossed in a series of pleasant thoughts while working or at home, then don’t be ashamed as it may be an indication that you are really smart and creative. Those who daydreamt more frequently scored higher on intellectual, creative ability and had more efficient brain systems measured in the MRI machine, a recent study has revealed. According to researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, daydreaming during meetings is not necessarily a bad thing. Researcher Eric Schumacher said that people with efficient brains may have too much brain capacity to stop their minds from wandering. The team, including lead co-author Christine Godwin, measured the brain patterns of more than 100 people while they lay in an MRI machine.
