It is impossible to tickle yourself. Now that you have probably tried that after reading this, take your time to read this and find out why. The brain is able to predict the tickle because it already possesses the information. It controls the way your fingers move. Your brain knows exactly what you are about to do. The element of surprise is gone. It cannot work, since your brain already knows it’s going to be tickled.
