When people are surprised, their brains release dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate the brain’s reward and pleasure centers. It is also released when we experience something unexpected or novel. This makes surprise an important part of our lives as it provides us with a burst of energy to explore new things. In this article, we will cover how you can use surprise in your business and life!

As mentioned before, dopamine is a hormone that helps regulate the brain’s reward and pleasure centers. This means it plays an important role in our lives because when there are unexpected occurrences or novel things happening around us – such as surprises – then our brains release dopamine making it feel pleasurable to explore new things. Using these principles of surprise for product packaging (or what some people call “the psychology of package design”) companies who want their products to stand out on store shelves may consider incorporating elements like bright colors into the design so they’re more eye catching and unique than their competitors.
This is also true when we are reading blog posts that provide “giftable” content, such as how to grow tomatoes in your backyard or how you can make a chicken coop out of recycled materials because the unexpectedness factor makes it more pleasurable for readers.
If you want people to notice what’s going on with your company and show interest then using surprising elements may be one way of doing so!

Dopamine releases when there are novel things happening around us (i.e., surprises) making these types of experiences feel pleasurable at first; this means that companies who incorporate bright colors into their pro
After you’ve mastered how to spell surprise, it’s time for the next step: understanding what a surprise is. This may seem like an easy question at first glance but when really analyzed, there are many different types of surprises that one might experience in their lifetime.
“What if I get home and my cat has died?” (turning point) “What if she got sick and started dying from something incurable? What will happen to her house while she’s gone?” (existential crisis) “I think Cat should be able to enjoy life with me before anything else happens.”(preparing oneself emotionally) “Damn – this is going to suck.” (reaction). These are just some
The Science of Surprise: how do you spell surprise
When people hear about the science behind surprise, they often think there is nothing surprising left. Luckily, this couldn’t be further from the truth! Who knew that many animals have a special sense organ for detecting movement in their immediate environment? With so much to learn and explore when it comes to surprises we can’t help but ask ourselves what else scientists will find as they continue studying this topic. There are literally endless possibilities for exploring unpredictability everywhere around us!
Knowing how important being open-minded is when it comes to discovery–and life in general!–we love celebrating all things unexpected with our interactive workshops every year at NICL West Coast’s annual conference. One recent workshop
centered around the science of surprise.
The Science of Surprise. How do you spell surprise? Surprisingly, we might not be able to accurately answer this question! We know that humans have two different ways of sensing the world– sight and sound. But what about other animals?
There are many species on Earth with a special sense organ called the “pit organ” which detects movement in their immediate environment. This means there’s another way for these creatures to experience surprises–and it’s just as fun when they happen! There is so much more scientists still need to learn about how different types of senses create surprising moments throughout our lives, but one thing is certain: by exploring unpredictability everywhere around us we can live better, happier days.*

paraphrased from NICL article, “The Science of Surprise”
I’ll never forget the first time I saw a surprise coming and had enough time to prepare for it.
The change in colors from dark blue to vibrant green is always spectacular, but sometimes there’s one even bigger than others that leaves me in awe every single year. And this was no exception! We were just standing on the boardwalk when we noticed how quiet everything seemed– too quiet. No birds chirping or people talking, and then all of sudden you see a bright flash followed by a boom echo through your body like an earthquake as fireworks fill up the sky around us.
What surprised me so much about this moment wasn’t necessarily how loud it was (though that certainly did), but rather what happened afterwards: nobody
