This got me wondering if there's some way you can tickle yourself, and turns out it is possible, if you're a schizophrenic.In the same vein, why is it you can't really tickle yourself, but if someone else does it, you squirm and squeal like a 3 year old girl?
My theory is you are getting a feedback loop from both sides of the contact, when you try and tickle yourself.
Hand/Fingers: Brain, we are proceeding to tickle the armpit.
Brain: Roger Roger
Armpit: Brain, we are receiving tickle sensations from the fingers.
Brain: Roger Roger, that checks out, carry on as normal.
Armpit/Fingers: Roger Roger.
But the other way.
Armpit: Brain we are being tickled by an outside source.
Brain: BBBBBWHAHAAHAHAHA STOP STOOOOP!!! OH GOD I'M GOING TO PEE!! STOP IT....*SQUEAK AND SQUEAL AND SQUIRM*
Armpit: .....ok I'll uh....I'll check back later I guess.
