Do you listen to your inner voice?

New research suggests we all have an angel sitting on our shoulder, encouraging us to do the right thing. 

During the study people were told to repeat the word ‘computer’ whilst performing a task so as to block out encouraging sentiment from their inner voice.  

The results revealed that people persevered at the task longer when they stopped saying the distracting word and were allowed to listen to the internal encouragement.
