Can you tickle yourself? If you can...well, bad news..your mind may be somewhat fractured.
So, give it a try...tickle yourself...tickle your feet, tickle your ribs, wherever your tickle spots are..if it is like someone else is doing it...then yep, time to perhaps see a doc..

To test the idea, the researchers had schizophrenics play tit-for-tat against themselves. Schizophrenics have trouble recognizing their own actions—that is, they often attribute their behavior to an alien source. Some can even tickle themselves. If our brains discount the feeling of our own actions to help us differentiate between self-generated and externally generated sensations, then a group of subjects who can’t make this distinction might simply be missing this sensory reduction. In that case, reasoned Wolpert and his team, schizophrenics should be better at playing tit-for-tat by the rules. And they were. When the robot pushed on the fingers of schizophrenics they were much better at pushing back on themselves with the same amount of force the robot had applied. Their brains didn’t discount the consequences of their own actions as much as the brains of healthy subjects did.


I tried...I am absurdly ticklish, but naa, It wasn't very tickly when I did it to myself...how about you?

Remember, just because you may be nuts, does not mean your not interesting anyhow

Couldn't resist this holiday greeting as I already had it on my clip art thumb drive..........and you don't have a comments section opened.

Happy holidays!

Your post was witty, cute and made me chuckle.

I can't tickle myself, but if I jab a fork into my own leg it still hurts. What does that mean?

I hope I don't have any more than 2 of me in there/here


My feet are very ticklish. No one can touch them, unless they are being rough with them. Including me. I stepped on a mosquito last summer, had the hardest time. I had to scratch with a knife, because my feet are too ticklish for me to scratch.
It tickles way too much
Does that mean I'm broken?
Oh well, sanity is highly over rated anyways.

These tests for craziness never turn out good :shk:

I can't tickle myself - a good test subject would be "Tickle Me Elmo"!
