This was from a documentary on brain plasticity, the ability of the brain to rewire itself. Turns out that deeply imbedded things, like riding a bicycle long, long ago, are very difficult to change. Most people could not relearn to reverse the motion of the handle bars. Brain plasticity is a very big deal in my consulting specialty of vision rehabilitation.

I can relate; I have an issue remembering to reverse everything when I'm backing up my trailer. Not intuitive at all.

hand on the bottom of the steering wheel...
move your hand in the direction you want the trailer to go...

install a front mounted trailer hitch..

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

You ought to see a full blood Cajun back up a boat trailer. She got a lot better at it as time went on. OTOH, I never had any trouble. I just imagined I was holding the trailer tongue and somehow, my hands automatically turned the wheels to make the rear of the truck go in the right direction.

this way there's no thinking involved...

When I was in the service I dragged and parked boat trailers all over the place, they were easy, most of the time you could see over the, (mostly skiffs). 24 yrs later when I 1st bought my enclosed construction trailer I needed one of the mechanics at the dealership to maneuver it and my truck out to the front parking lot. A week or so later and a couple dents on the trailer I tooled around without a problem and was way accurate in CQ parking within a month.
