Seeing beyond the 10%: A Quote from Curious Case

Explaing why that the train station being a new place for him will put his brain on overload, Christopher states to the reader how he “sees” everything while most people “glance” at things. He says that “because most people are almost blind and they don’t see most things [that] there is lots of spare capacity in their heads” (Haddon 144). At first glance at this quote, I did not understand what Christopher meant because many people are good at focusing. But when I began to see what the quote meant I remembered a famous study saying that we as humans only use about 10% of our brains.
