Deja vu
There is nothing as fascinating as the human mind. It makes us sense things, it makes us feel feelings and very often it controls everything we know. But it also has its own tricks up its sleeve, where it can force you to think a particular way, despite you knowing otherwise. Take a look at 7 such strange phenomena of mind we’ve all had at some point in our lives, but don’t know how to describe.

#1 Déjà Vu

This one is the commonest of all strange phenomena and probably you all know it !Déjà vu is the sense of having seen something in the past. More often than not, it is related to the memory of a sensory perception i.e. the way you felt. As a result, deja vu normally occurs when you experience a familiar feeling, but not necessarily the same event.

#2 Déjà Vécu

Déjà vécu is what people experience when they feel they are experiencing deja vu. Thus, whereas deja vu is the sense of having seen an event before, déjà vécu is the experience of having seen an event before. In the latter, you’re likely to recognize sights, sounds and smell. It normally also leads to a sense of intuition, where you get the feeling you know what’s going to happen next.

#3  Déjà Visité

Déjà visité is not as common an experience deja vu, but it sort of follows the same principle. It’s the feeling of knowing a new place you haven’t visited. Say you’re visiting a new town or city and you intuitively know your way around it.

#4  Déjà Senti

Déjà senti is literally a strange phenomena where you experience a sense of already having felt something. This is a mental phenomenon, and you can barely remember it later. Unlike the other phenomena described here, deja senti does not have anything creepy associated with it, and is a purely natural feeling.

#5 Presque Vu

You’ve definitely experienced this. Presque vu is basically the sensation that you’re about to have an epiphany. Except that it doesn’t come. It’s almost like the “tip of the tongue” sensation.

#6 L’esprit de l’Escalier

Possibly the most common of all these is phenomena is L’esprit de l’escalier, or stairway wit. It occurs when you think of a comeback a little too late, when you’re leaving the scene. Just think of all those times you were going for a quick retort, but the moment to deliver it had passed.

#7 Jamais Vu

Jamais vu meaning ‘never seen’ is considered the opposite of deja vu, and describes a familiar situation that is not recognized. An individual experiencing this will not recognize a situation, despite having experienced it before. Take for example all those instances when you’ve met a person and had a conversation with them in the past, but have no recollection of them when you see them later.
