Hello, everyone.

According to Google's definition of "blow your mind" which is "affect someone very strongly", it seems that when you are frightened by something such as insects it blew your mind because it affected you strongly.
I was wondering if that is right.
Would you explain about that?

Thank you very much.

    No, that doesn't work.

    If something blows your mind it usually means that it is something totally/utterly surprising, something that you might never have imaged to be possible - like the fact that men have walked on the moon.
    Thank you very much, Franco-filly.

    I would use it of something totally astonishing, not necessarily bad. It would 'blow my mind' if the Queen abdicated and Prince Charles retired from public life.

    The first time you look through virtual reality goggles it might blow your mind. If you found out you inherited $200 million from a relative you didn't know you had, that might blow your mind.
