Counterintuitive

I have another one!!

There are enough diamonds in existence to give everyone on the planet a cupful

(from the book 1227 Qi facts to blow your socks off)

Diamonds

A cup of diamonds

My first attempt at counterintuitive was a giraffe

Rarasaur‘s sixth weekly Prompt for the Promptless; Counterintuition

Counterintutition is a seemingly simple concept– it represents a truth that is contrary to common sense or the expectations of intuition.

Some examples of counterintuitive situations: You burn calories when you’re sleeping, flailing around is exactly the wrong thing to do when drowning, and beautifully speckled dart frogs can be poisonous to the touch.

Suggested Prompts:

  • Share a picture that represent something counterintuitive
  • Describe a counterintuitive situation in a realm of your expertise
  • Write a poem about counterintuition
  • Share a story about a counterintuitive situation
  • … or make up your own prompt related to the theme!
