OFF THE TOP OF ONE'S HEAD: meaning and examples

Good morning, Today's expression is: off the top of one's head It means: To say something immediately and without thinking very much. Example 1 Mr. Carlyle: Sales have gone down this month. I'd like to hear your reasons why. Mr. Adams: Off the top of my head, I'd have to say that the main reason is probably that we are in the post-Christmas period and people don't have that much money to spend. Example 2 Now, Mr. Adams, don't just answer off the top of your head. Take some time to analyse the information and please support your answer with facts. Example 3 Off the top of my head, I'd calculate that about 70% of the people who attended the meeting were women.
