7What happens then?

When the time to take a decision comes, the choice that will have stronger thought trace will be chosen by the brain. This simply means that our choices are pre-determined even before we start to think about the options to choose from and we feel that we are taking decisions while in reality, our brain is doing all the work.

8How early the researchers can predict?

As per the researchers, they are able to predict the decision which will be made by the contestant 11 seconds before he starts thinking about the decision. As per Pearson, this also explains why we tend to get more and more thoughts about something when we start focusing or thinking about it. It can be said that a loop a thought is formed at that time.
