Counterintuitive is a seemingly simple concept– it represents a truth that is contrary to common sense or the expectations of intuition.
Some examples of counterintuitive situations: You burn calories when you’re sleeping, flailing around is exactly the wrong thing to do when drowning, and beautifully speckled dart frogs can be poisonous to the touch.
Now my take on it- I have come across so many counterintuitive phrases, it surprises me that even after being proved wrong they are still in use. Here is a list-
1- Practice makes a man perfect but nobody is perfect.
2- Men are more intelligent, powerful, entrepreneur, etc. etc. etc. than women, and we all know the truth.
3- Men are distracted by how a woman dresses, especially in some of the Asian countries they are forced to put veils, otherwise they are so pure and innocent.
4- Women are weaker sex whereas, everybody knows who needs all those medicines.
5- Crocodile’s tears, they are not at all unhappy while eating but shed tears.
6- People with different views or different species can not get along
