Mensagem:  "Right off the top of your head" is the first thought that comes to you when you are asked a question. Suppose someone shows you a math problem on the blackboard in a classroom. "How do I solve this?" is the question. You take a quick look at it and say "Well, right off of the top of my head I think you should think of the Pythagorean theorem." That's the first thing that popped into your head. You didn't do any research or look anything up. It's an answer, feeling or decison made on the spot.
