why cant you stand on one foot with eyes closed?

and maintain balance? I also need a source of an answer to this for my Human Anatomy class.

    You can but it takes practice. With eyes open, you are using vision to maintain a point of reference. Without vision, you are relying upon your your inner ear (balance). Many joggers use this as a way of strengthening their ankles and it does indeed work very effectively. Over time, one can maintain balance over a couple minutes or more.

    idk ! it makes me really dizzy, i guess its because you have nothing to focus on so you just kind of fall over. because i have to focus on something to balance on one foot . then again, i bet a lot of people can do it but im just so badly coordinated 😛 .

  • Who says you cant?

    because in order to maintain your balance for a long period of time you have to concentrate on an objet that is not moving
